D’s mom bought a groupon for a fancy-ish Japanese restaurant in town. D, his mom and I love (love love) sushi. We checked the menu and there were more “meal” options for his dad so we were good to go. We decided to do sushi family style. Order a bunch… Read more »
We’ve all said it, you can’t choose your family. Oh that you could … day dream over! We say it when our family does something we don’t like, or we feel the need to defend our relationship with this family member. But sometimes it’s more serious.
For me, family is everything. I live, and would die, for my family. Included in this are some incredibly close friends who have become defacto family members. But everyone’s version of family is different.

So one would think I went to the doctor today because I have been sick (still fighting this cold/cough D bestowed upon me). Logical guess but sadly you’d be wrong. Today was my all-too-regular visit with my allergist.
So as usually happens on the weekends, when I wake up, it’s time for me to decide what to make for lunch (I don’t have kids and love sleep so I often sleep in on the weekends and D usually gets up earlier than me). Sunday is food shopping today… Read more »
I have nothing against rats. I think they are cute, charming, intelligent creatures that make very good pets. The issue is with a former neighbour, when Bahkti and I lived in Hoole, a suburb of Chester. We noticed that one day the alley at the back of the house appeared… Read more »
