Can the child within my heart rise above?

Extremes.  The very day my nephew came into the world, his namesake and grandfather, my Dad, entered Hospice care. 

Although he may not be the boy some girls think of as handsome, to my heart he carries the key...



He made it!  It's been a rough weekend all around for my family, between my father's rapidly declining health and my sister's pregnancy risks becoming more severe, but so far, we're all intact, with a new little man to add to our clan. 

And like a boat upon the ocean, I'm rocking you to sleep

The water's dark and deep inside this ancient heart, you'll always be a part of me

Reachin' out with both hands, I gotta feel that kick inside

I felt my nephew move today!!!  OK, so technically it was a head-butt, not a kick, but who's keeping track?  OMG, it was so cool and so gross at the same time.  My sister's belly is stretched tight, hard as a rock, and the little guy apparently likes to hang out upside down.  As we were driving home from the supermarket, she told me if i wanted to feel him move, I should pul

There's a somebody I'm longing to meet...

And I'm hoping against hope that I'll actually have the opportunity.  For now, his name is "Jellybean", although he looks a lot more like a little tiny person and less like a blob these days.  But, until his name is chosen, Jellybean it is.

For those of you who don't know, my sister is 22.5 weeks pregnant with her first child.  We found out on Good Friday that it's a boy.  Blue yarn!!!  With sheer joy, I dove into searching for the perfect baby boy outfit pattern online.  It was absolute glee to shop for soft, fuzzy baby blue yarn.  Tiny little hats, socks and sweaters!

Everything dies, baby, that's a fact

But maybe everything that dies someday comes back...

My friends need to stop dieing.  Just.  Stop.  No more bad news, no more frantic phone calls saying "OMG, did you HEAR??", and dammit, no more late night MySpace shockers.

What do you do when you find out that your best friend since kindergarten's marriage is FAR worse than you could have ever imagined?  When you find out that her husband broke her cheekbone in front of their 2 small children?  He picked her up, and slammed her face first into the cement basement floor.  You can tell by my title quote, if you're familiar with the s

Who are the people in YOUR neighborhood?

I can't wait to move.  I know there are freaks and weirdos everywhere, but with so many fewer people where I'm headed, percentage-wise, anyway, there should be fewer of these type of bizarre incidents.

The history book on the shelf is always repeating itself

Boyfriend and I love to spend our time at local historic sites.  We're fortunate to have NJ's first Governer's Mansion within walking distance, it's one of our favorite haunts.  We were even members of their preservation society, briefly, before the University took posession of the property.
