A call for arms (and spatulas)

I have fallen, of late, into the trap I promised myself to avoid. I am harried, rushed. I work full time, then come back to a house full of needy small children. I have a mortgage and a marriage to mind, insurances to update and bureaucracy to decipher and somewhere along the way food has […]

A Back Issue

I have not been sleeping on the job, if that’s what you’re thinking. I was, so to speak, lying on it. I am trying to find an elegant way to describe this but the last month of my life must have been the hardest and the most painful. I have survived two weeks of excruciating pain, […]

A rant and a delicious countdown

I’d like to issue a a warning to my male readers: I am about to talk shop about my pregnancy. Be warned or just skip to the food photos down below at any time if you feel  faint. So after 17 weeks of nausea (as I wrote in the past, morning sickness is a term invented by a […]

This Friday morning I woke up determined to get back in the saddle. Four weeks of utter chaos (aka “vacation”) left me yearning for some good old routine. The queen of toddlers is back on track, in daycare and away from indulgent grand parents influence, my husband is back at work. Now its up to baby Tom and me […]

Home again

I know, I know, its been ages since I posted anything and no, we have not gone on a diet. To my defence I report witnessing trans atlantic flights, climate change, an overdose of social gatherings and two very jet lagged little people. I am happy to report that we have braved the journey back […]

Yesterday I shaved my head

No I didn’t. But it makes for a nice, catchy title, doesn’t it? In fact, at a certain point yesterday I was giving the notion much serious thought, right about when I realized that for the third time in a row, I will have to entertain my 3-6 months old pajama clad little boss while I’m in […]
