Farewell for Now

Samsonite Fashionaire for the Fashionista It’s 6 am! Why am I up? It’s because my brother is picking me up bright and early (well, early) to do a few errands and then go back to his place and my sister’s on the beautiful Mendocino coast. Carpooling there and taking the bus back makes me feel […]

Just in Case…

…the girls did get jealous of Henry having his picture published, here’s one of June and Audrey, sitting in the sunny window.

The Bachelor
November 20th, 2008 by suzy in Cats,Jessica 4 Comments

There’s nothing like a Jessica post to get people talking! JFans will be delighted to hear that I’ll be seeing her (and, oh yes, her mother, too) at Thanksgiving, so I’ll almost certainly have more tales to tell. Note to Self: don’t forget to wear that necklace she likes. For the Henry fans among you […]

Buses, Bullies & Boys (Oh My)
November 18th, 2008 by suzy in Jessica 5 Comments

Jessica may only be five years old, but she’s already learning about boys. And girls. She changed her top while a friend was visiting, confidently predicting that when he saw the wardrobe change, “he’s gonna be all, like, whoa“. No girl over the age of five reading this will be surprised to hear that not […]

Sturm und Drang
November 16th, 2008 by suzy in Uncategorized 2 Comments

Last night, in the dark hours between moonset and sunrise, I was awakened by the unmistakable sound of cats fighting. Fearing for Henry, I peered into the darkness. I couldn’t see a thing. Unsettled, I went back to bed and read the new Michael Connelly until I felt ready to sleep again. I woke up […]

Phony

If I must have a cell phone, why can’t it be this one, with more than three carats of diamonds? And a handy little mini version that clips to one’s handbag, to avoid the annoyance of digging through all that money, lipsticks, boys’ phone numbers, etc., to find the ringing phone. Especially good post-manicure! Priced […]

Bookish
November 14th, 2008 by suzy in Uncategorized 2 Comments

The local librarians have begun to comment on how fast I read and how much. I picked up the most recent bounty, and the librarian asked me if I wanted all five books at once, and pointed out that I had just taken three out (which, to be fair, I had just returned). When I […]

Mixed Emotions
November 10th, 2008 by suzy in Uncategorized 5 Comments

You all know I can find the cloud in every silver lining, so you probably won’t be surprised to learn that my emotions on the recent election are far from unmixed. Although I’m thrilled that Mr. Obama was elected (and to be a witness to history in the making), I’m equally disappointed that nearly half […]

Historic Day

Our New First Family! Yes, we can – and we did!

D Day
November 4th, 2008 by suzy in Uncategorized 3 Comments

I can’t believe the day is finally here. I feel like a bride who has been planning a huge, elaborate ceremony for more than two years, and now the day has finally come that will change my life forever. It seems slightly unreal. My wise friend Mike suggested that I write about my voting experience […]

No Reno
November 2nd, 2008 by suzy in Uncategorized 2 Comments

I meant to go to Reno this weekend. Not for the traditional divorce* (fun fact: the first Reno divorce was granted in 1906) or the traditional gambling (I may be the only person who’s been to Las Vegas and not gambled there), but for a little getaway. And to see the legendary Neil Young. However…Saturday […]
