Editors Take Over Manhattan!


As I mentioned the other day, I was recently in New York City! Yes, really—I took the train and stayed in a hotel all by myself like a real grown-up! I was there for a conference, but not the one...

Not Your Usual Labor Day


If you've read this blog for the last, what, 12 years? or known me personally since the mid-eighties, you know that every single Labor Day weekend we go up to the White Mountains for the Lancaster County Fair. Every. Single....

The Insomnia Games


I never have trouble falling asleep when I first go to bed, but if I wake up for any reason during the night, I'm doomed. Regardless of how sleepy I think I am, my brain starts going a mile a...

Hi, remember me? I have been working ridiculous hours. Since returning from Portland on April 3, I have had exactly TWO days off: Sunday April 24 (I don't even remember what I did that day) and Sunday May 8 (Mother's...

What a busy, happy weekend! Saturday Pete had SATs in the morning (well, OK, that part wasn't so happy!), while we drove Julie to her sculpting class at the MFA, then on to Wheelock to pick up Steph, who is...
