I can’t keep a secret.

I started a new blog this week. The link is www.thingsicarry.com. It’s one of those professional blog hosts where you have to pay to have the website, and I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to buckle down and spend the money.

If I do, and I’m sure I will, I’ll probably be changing the URL to a “dot com”, because I keep thinking that my new blog is at squarePANTS.com and it’s all too confusing.

CORRECTION! I’ve now updated the link to a dot com. The new link is www.thingsicarry.com

So far, I’m IN LOVE with the new site. Big pictures, big video, embedding HTML codes. Mmmmm.

I’m going to stop blogging here and you can feel free to update your bookmarks to the new site, but know that you may have to change the link in the near future.

I’ll see you over there and let me know what you think in the comment section or in the guest book…because blogs that you pay for have guest books.

Be forewarned, it’s still under construction.

Mom’s 50th birthday party

April 6, 2008 at 9:15 pm | Posted in family | 3 Comments

So today we finally had our big birthday bash at our house — complete with party hats! — for my mama who will be turning 50(!) tomorrow. It was a huge success; we didn’t run out of food, drinks, or space.

Mama glowed. There are a lot of people out there who love her.

Pictures to follow

So much time and so little to do. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it.

Getting ready for the party…

Love and puppy blackmail

It’s Friday. Finally. Sean came home last night and by the time I got home from work at around nine, he had prepared an incredible dinner for us.  I’m lucky.

I think Jasmine missed Sean as much as I did.

And today is Friday which usually means that I usually have two more days of work left in my week, but I was able to take tomorrow off to prepare for a big party we’re having here on Sunday. Me? Not have to work on Saturday? Phenomenal.

It’s a rainy dreary day around here, which can only mean one thing….


Oh, I am so showing this picture to their significant others when they get older.

Breaking in the new bedroom set

No dogs were harmed in this photo shoot. This is why they call it “puppy love”.

Sean is at an overnight manager’s meeting in Nashua, New Hampshire, so the pups and I are fending for ourselves. I think we’re managing all right aside from the thousand pieces of bones that are now strewn across the living room. Sammy and Jasmine are being quite well-behaved.

I’m lonely.

But Sean will be home tomorrow and things will get back to normal around here. I’m almost tempted to put on ESPN just so I can intentionally tune out the sports chatter.

Dollar store treasures

April 1, 2008 at 9:05 pm | Posted in Society | 2 Comments

I love going to the dollar store to find new books to read. Once in a while, I’ll find brilliance in between those crossword puzzle books and stacks of Bibles.

I always feel kind of sad for the authors of those books who spent months and years pouring their hearts out onto these pages, only to have their art end up being sold for a buck and six with tax.

I bought six books today –two of them are memoirs (which we all know I love) — including this one by David Halberstam as well as Mike Wallace’s memoir.

I hate the idea that simply because these books were published three years ago, they are no longer readable. Haven’t we learned by now that new isn’t always good?
