    Happy Pi Day!

    Will and I were on the way to school this morning with a warm chocolate chip pie for his Algebra class nestled between us in honor of Pi Day.  I said, "Maybe we should have quiche for dinner.  It's a pie." "No.  I really don't like quiche." "Will," I said, "don't you wish you ...

    Back from Wit's End...

    I am embarrassed.   I didn’t mean to not post a blog post for so long but the truth is, I couldn’t do it.   Don’t get me wrong, I could have written something but it wouldn’t have been much fun.   See previous post about my fun activities of looking...

    The Christmas Card (last time)

    So...a week ago I made the ultimately crazy holiday decision NOT to send a Christmas card in 2010.  And, I felt great about that decision.  Really.  Except at around 4 p.m. when I look at the mail and sort out the cute Christmas cards that other people managed to get in the mail to...

    What won't be in your mailbox...

    Normally by the first week of December, I have already finished writing my annual Christmas letter, have my Christmas card family photo taken AND even been to the post office to by stamps for addressed envelopes. For many years, I made my own Christmas card.  I made the first one 12 years ago...

    Tales from my minivan...

    Here it is! The first official blog post as a Bluegrass mom.   I’ve been stewing for about a week as to how to start this very first post.   It seemed like a great idea a month back to merge what has been an on-going blog called At Home in the Bluegrass.blogspot.com into a regular...
