You may recall that a while back I linked to a couple of blog entries about scary toys that make noise all by themselves. Now, just in time for Halloween, I have my own scary toy story to add to the repetoire. Last night, to top off my day of busy housework, I decided it […]

And Happy Birthday to Dom! We’re bracing for the hordes of trick-or-treaters. Bella and I made a run to Target today for candy. This was after our successful venture to the mall to get replacement glasses for me. I’ll say this for Lens Crafters, they made me a replacement pair of glasses in half an […]
from Et Tu, Jen a great analogy: I heard someone make a great point on Relevant Radio the other day. The show’s host made a comment about the Church’s rules, and the guest (can’t remember his name) pointed out that what the Church offers should be thought of more as a prescription than a set […]

My Uncle Jim called this morning (while I was walking with Bella in the park) to say that he was going to be in Boston on business and had an unexpected free evening and to ask if we would be able to meet him for dinner. Dom was a little worried, both about rush-hour traffic […]
