Chuck does not care that the iPhone has more megapixels than the first digital camera we ever owned, probably because we keep using all these apps to make the pictures look like crap on purpose. HUMANS.

Managing her business

Leta’s new favorite game on the iPhone is one where she manages her own bakery. I don’t know if she’s got the logistics down or if she just loves the pictures of cupcakes, but it’s so cute how she has to pull her glasses down to see it clearly. My little old woman.

I partied with UN Week, and UN Week won

Eight days ago I hopped on a plane headed for New York City. As usual, I procrastinated the packing portion of the program and almost left the house without an adequate amount of panties for the trip. I can see that conversation now: Hey, Christy.

I mentioned here about a month ago that we were having our entire roof replaced. The inspectors we hired when buying the house told us we could get another good two years out of the beast, but when you’re living underneath a 25-year-old roof that is more flammable than gasoline and a fire breaks out [...]


I got home late last night after everyone was in bed, and when I came in the door Chuck was lying on a dog bed in the family room in the dark. He didn’t move, didn’t wag his tail, didn’t leap up to greet me. I walked over to him, lovingly smoothed back the fur [...]
