Just what we needed

Who knew? An older brother is the greatest thing since sliced gluten free bread! He catches up with B when he bolts, puts his arm over A's shoulder so he doesn't lag behind, cleans up after himself, and gets us up to date on the latest technology. It's the greatest!

We went bowling today. We all really suck, but we had a great time. B only bolted down the alley once.

Yesterday we rode the commuter train. Pretty exciting! To the shopping center and back. Lunch at the burger joint. A and B remarkabley well behaved!

No worries. What a sweetheart! Happy, helpful, extremely polite. Enjoying his brothers. Very very nice.

crash course: teenage boys

My stepson is arriving in a couple of hours. He caught a ride with Santa, arriving on the midnight express from Brazil. Well, not quite express, he'll have been traveling for about 24 hours by the time he gets here. I'm trying to remember all the reasons why I thought this was a really good idea.

What doFont size you do with a teenage boy, anyway?

Tomorrow is the winter solstice. My meditation instructor explained that the solstice is an excellent time for meditating, it can be very powerful and transformative.

high speed

i've finally come out of the dark ages, or rather slow ages, and now have high speed internet. After being offline for a week or 2 at home, it is both nice to be back online and yet at the same time it was really nice to take a break from my computer addiction, actually read a book with a binding, light candles, talk to my partner..... hmmm....
