Evie’s Room and the Sunroom

I’m pretty proud of any changes/improvements we make upon this house. The Vegas house was brand new and really had no personality anyway, so I didn’t feel like we did much to it. This house, though, since it’s so old and so piecemeal, anything we do I feel brings new life and makes it look …

Captain Wentworth

Captain Wentworth, one of our cats, is sick. He’d been going outside of his litterbox for probably at least a month now and probably about three weeks ago we took him to our new vet to make sure it wasn’t something medical. After being told it was probably not a medical issue (or rather that …

Evie in General

I can’t believe she’s already over a year! I feel like she’s changing faster now than she did in her first 12 months. It’s not true, and it’s really only because there are now physical Events. Like responding when we talk to her in a way that seems intentional, or standing up unassisted, or -GASP! …

Evie Aime: *Putting a dish cloth or blanket over her head, and then crawling around. She’ll bump into things and keep going, completely unfazed. *Climbing into a basket -whether for laundry or storage -and then playing with her toys inside. What she’s really doing, though, is waiting for one of us to push her around …

For Want of a Shower

During the first couple of weeks of our bathroom renovation, Evie and I went to California to stay with my mom and visit family and friends. This means that we missed Snowpocolype/Snowmageddon (e.g., Blizzard Juno), but James didn’t and he sent us pictures and kept us updated. Wowzers! I wish we’d been there just to …

The Reno, Phase 1

So, as mentioned, we’ve been renovating our kitchen and half bath (phase 2 is the full bath). The rest of the house is just cosmetic, but the aforementioned needed work. Phase 1 has finally finished and I have to say, renos are kind of ridiculous. I mean, all the guys were really nice and hard …

Our Year: a short story

What a year! Obviously our most major event was Evie (though, technically that was the year previous); another was our move to MA. Evie and her role in our lives are constantly changing but we are slowly settling into MA. We are still in the midst of the renovation of our house -both large and …

Birthday!

Our little girl turned ONE! We spent the day running errands; it was a sunny but cold day, and we went off to New Hampshire to make a Sam’s Club run, then to the Asian market and Trader Joe’s. Yes, that’s right. We spent the day like any other. When we got home, I made …

Christmas

Evie’s first Christmas was a quiet one, and very little paper was eaten, too. We started the morning off with her Christmas stockings, and ended the evening with presents for everyone, including Evie. In between there were much Christmas movies, cooking, and eating. Uncle Tim came to visit and was game to play with Evie …

Have you seen Amelie? Great movie. There’s a bit in there where the narrator takes the viewer through what various characters like (aime) and don’t like (n’aime pas). Tells a lot about each character and since it amuses me to do so, I’m applying it here. Evie Aime: *Sucking on tags. Doesn’t matter on what …
