Happy almost birthday

April 15th, 2010 by Joyce · 2 Comments

Got an Amazon box today.  UPS guy kinda tossed it on my step and then when David picked it up he dropped it. I peeled back the packing tape and opened the box. It had a Pentax digital SLR inside.  Huh?  I looked at the shipping receipt.  To Matt, from Matt.  To Matt, from Matt?  […]

Wrong answer

This, too

December 31st, 2009 by Joyce

I’m sitting in Matt’s new Honda Fit.  We bought the Fit when we realized he had been driving our 2001 Saturn SL without gear oil for, oh, who knows how long?  Ever since the babies came (and the rest of the chaos that happened after) checking the Saturn’s gear oil level had fallen low, low, […]

Christmas Day

December 26th, 2009 by Joyce

We chose to spend Christmas Day at home this year like we have since 2004, when I was too hugely pregnant to travel safely and comfortably.  Once the babies were born it wasn’t any easier; they hated the car and would cry until we scooped them out at our destination.  Post-AVM, now I’m the one […]
