In which I temporarily become single again.

August 12th, 2012 · No Comments

Aaron is staying in CO with the kids, so I’m home this week alone.  How can you tell?  Why, I’ve just accomplished things, and am now sitting down to blog about them… I got home around 11, immediately swept the floors, took out the trash, and ran a load of dishes.  This had to happen […]

Olympics!

July 28th, 2012 · No Comments

I let Ari stay up late to walk the Olympics.  I have such great memories of doing the same as a kid, and she’d earned it. She’s been a real gem today. Knox has been teething – I think he’s cutting the top teeth, soon.  But, basically, he wants to be held/fed 24/7, poor dude.  […]

Morning Glories

June 3rd, 2012 · No Comments

Knox has been getting up at 6 am lately – ready to start his day.  So, accordingly, have I.  I don’t mind the early hour, as I’m somewhat of a morning person.  More, I mind the fact that my “Hannah” time has been obliterated by this practice.  Aaron gets his time at night, and I […]

Beautiful weekend

April 1st, 2012 · No Comments

It has been a busy but great weekend so far. Yesterday, Ari and I went to the farmer’s market in Evanston for our weekly adventure. She wanted to know where all the farm animals were…Looking around at the coolers of meat for sale, I ummmed a bit and explained that they don’t bring live animals […]

Flight of the Bumblebee

March 1st, 2012 · No Comments

So.  If I take just the bare minimum to work – running pack, credit card and ID, some cash, badges, lunch.  Also my breastpump supplies. Maybe I’ll leave those at work overnight and just take a bottle brush instead.  Oh and change of clothes, running clothes.  Yes.  Then I could change into those running clothes […]

Knox, snuggler extraordinaire

February 29th, 2012 · No Comments

It is almost midnight. I am just nursing in bed,listening to the rain. One thing fairly different this round is that  Knox sleeps in our bed almost all night. I didn’t plan it that way, it just happens. He gets warmth, snuggle and low fuss feeding. Our room is pretty cold. I get more sleep, […]

So much for letting it not get to me.

September 29th, 2011 · No Comments

There are big organizational changes at my work coming…today, I think? I’m worried that it might very well be layoffs. Yesterday was, for a lot of reasons I’d rather not re-write, very weird. Suffice to say that I had an unsettling conversation with the executive assistant to the SVP of the dept and it led […]

Digesting this Weekend.

September 25th, 2011 · No Comments

This weekend was not for the faint of heart. Whatever was in the air…or if I didn’t know better…PMSing…caused an eruption of emotions. 3 major fights b/t Aaron and I in 24 hours…and yet also some of the most productive “relationship talk” we’ve had in a long time. I think the low point was having […]

6 am, and it’s quiet again.

September 15th, 2011 · No Comments

I am in the habit of getting up before the rest of my family. It’s nice to have some time to myself. This morning was a bit earlier than usual, as Ari was having some kind of crying/bad dream around 5 am. I didn’t end up going in, but only because she had quieted down […]

Well, she’s flying now.

September 12th, 2011 · No Comments

Ari’s first day of school was a great success. She even came home in the same pants/undies, so no accidents all day! I was so happy I could burst. I got up early this morning to start my work day, as I was working from home and planning on some substantial gaps in my day […]
