On Saturday morning, April 1st, I saw the mother robin checking out the nest over our door. I put up a blanket over the window (since I never got to finding a one-way glass) so our comings and goings would not disturb the nesting. There are no eggs yet, and I have not seen her again. I sincerely hope that my seeing her that morning did not dissuade her from picking that spot for her nest this year.

A woman I know has been having breastfeeding troubles with her three month old. She firmly believes in the superiority of breastmilk and nursing, and so has persisted through the discouragement (implicit and from other people, including pediatrician) and is using a lactation supplementer instead of bottles. She used donated breast milk in it until she ran out and now is using formula in it. As we talked this morning, I volunteered to pump some extra so that her baby can have real breastmilk. (More)

It has been many moons since a fish update. The last blog entry about it was October 2004, but there might be a newsletter that has a more recent update. If not this poor catfish of ours was lonely for a longer time than I thought. (More)

I was talking with a friend the other day about grandmothers knitting and sweaters they give for Christmas. Her comment was, "I loved my grandma, but those things were hideous." Then I related how I always loved the things my grandma knitted for me. I was just thinking about it again recently. I even liked the pink sweater she made, and the tomboy in me normally didn't like pink. Maybe she was just more savvy about what little girls liked then. She made my sister and me these really neat sweatervests that had animals worked in - the face of the animal on the front, with button eyes, and the tail on the back, with little cat tails hanging out, or bunny rabbit cottontails. They were great. Yay for Grandma!

Christmas Eve, we went to a church family's party and then had a candlelight service at church. Christmas Day, there was no service (we meet in a school and they didn't want to make the janitor work on Christmas) so we had the day at home. (More)

I have proved it to myself. Eating too much sugar drains my energy, making me tired and lethargic. On the positive side, cutting down on my sugar consumption gives me energy to last through the day! (More)

Just for the record, Pittsburgh got snow flurries yesterday. Very fun to watch. A few actually stuck on the car until the sun came out.

Based on an excruciating headache Wednesday afternoon, October 12, that did not go away, Jon and I headed to West Penn Hospital Emergency Room at 10:30pm. A friend came to the house to watch Jonathan while he slept. Here is an aside - it was so good for Jonathan that he did not come, he would have been tired and cranky and I would have not had any resources left to support Jon. (More)

This will be short because there is catch-up to do.

Saturday we went shopping for Thanksgiving dinner and apple picking. Jonathan slept through the whole apple picking trip, even though his car seat was placed in a wagon that got a very bumpy ride through the orchard. We picked a half-bushel for ourselves. (More)

Thursday morning, we drove up to Jon's Aunt Janet's place in Hamilton, Ontario. We stopped at "our" Wal-Mart at the two hour mark for a bathroom break and to buy some snacks. (I think we've stopped there every time we go that way - it must just be at a good break point.) (More)

The line at security at the Orlando International Airport was short and quick. There was only one man in front of us to go through the x-ray machines. He had a lot of stuff (now that I think about it, way too much for legal carry-on) and he had to take his laptop out of its bag, etc. (More)

Mom found this house while canoeing in the Merrimack River, and thinks it is just perfect for us. It does look great! There is a lot of land (13 acres) and a lovely place for the Black Rabbit to launch from.
We have gotten used to Pittsburgh housing prices, so anything is a shock, but this house is fairly expensive in my mind, though probably quite reasonable.
It needs a lot of work, and of course, I would need to find a job, and see how the community is, etc.
Update: the address is 250 West Road, Canterbury, NH. It is 50 or so minutes from my parents.

We recently switched our automobile insurance to State Farm, because Amica doubled their rates on our homeowners policy, a bait-and-switch sort of thing - they told me the estimated rate, and I agreed, spent a month trying to get the inspector to come look at the house. (More)

There have been a number of things we wanted to work better on the Flying Junior, but mostly because it is hard to find a sailboat store in Pittsburgh, we hadn't gotten around to it. (More)

In a sales flyer I got recently, there was a line at the bottom that said, "Not responsible fro typos."
