This is a review through Blogging for Books. I was not paid, but I was given the book at no charge. A few months ago I lost two dogs. And not the they-went-wandering-off-into-the-woods kind of Lost. But the oh-shit-they-are-really-sick-and-there’s-nothing-we-can-do kind of lost. And it sucked. Our beautiful, long legged, constantly chewing 15-month old Potcake was […]
The YWCA featured me on their blog today. I’m raising money for them. Because I believe in what they do. Because I’ve benefited from what they do. Check it out here. For those of you who have donated, THANK YOU!! I’m so excited to race!!
I just started reading The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. I have read very little fiction since daughter was born. And this monster is over 700 pages long. I don’t remember where I heard about it, or what I heard about it, but it became available at the library and I picked it up so I feel […]

Pup watches intently. Inquisitively. It floats. Wings buzzing. Annoyed. It’s time for breakfast. “What is it?” Pup’s brown eyes ask me. She’s not sure. Not a bird. […]
I’ve really been missing this little guy lately. Over the weekend I had a dream that he was still with us. He was still sick, but wrapped in my arms and what Joy it was to feel his weight against me. I think daughter detected my missing him and has been sleeping with a stuff Boston […]
We spent four days on the shores of Lake Superior. We had a blast biking, kayaking, hiking, eating, blueberry picking, wine-tasting, sailing…. we’re been home less than 24 hours and it feels like we were never there. Now we’ve both got two feet back in reality. But the best part was seeing, feeling, hugging, being […]
