Laugh Till It Hurts

Last night Dom imed me this link to a local blogger writing about his commute on the T, Boston’s subway system. Part of the genius is that he creates the character of Billy, the fictional driver: CHARLES [a stop on the red line] Billy stops the train halfway across the bridge because there’s a bag […]

33 weeks and counting down…

Dom recently posted this picture, which I hadn’t seen before. I stumbled across it today. Glancing at it unprepared, and not expecting to see a picture of myself, I was really taken aback at how big I look. The thing is it all happens so gradually. I had this weird thought the other day about […]

After talking with my doctor, I realized I’ve probably been having Braxton Hicks contractions and not realizing what […]

Most of them were extended family, but several friends from chuch others came as well. I’m glad they didn’t try to make it a surprise party… too complicated. But there […]

It is done!

Finally! I finished the quilt I started to make a little more than a year ago. It is a present for my sister… in part a thank you for being my maid of honor. Though I would probably have made it anyway because, well, she’s my sister and my best friend. I’d post a picture, […]
