Signs of the times

Indications that technology is taking over my life:

  • I react to an amusing story told at dinner after my Board meeting by exclaiming "You are so ending up on my blog!" (OK, I didn't really end up relaying it, because it sort of loses something as the weeks pass, but after three days of meetings, an impacted weiner dog is really damned funny).
  • My sister and I make plans by sending Google calendar invitations to each other.
  • I make lunch plans with the provision "If I have to bail, I'll text you."
  • Friends check on my health and emotional state by posting "MK, if you're lurking, post so we know you're OK" on a message board.

Who's Who

    Hubby- aka DH My husband since 1995. He is the head of the band department at a college prep school, and dabbles as a wanna-be pop star.

    The Princess- aka DD. Third grader at the local parochial school. Loves butterlies, sparkly things, the color purple and has recently developed a crush on one of the twins from "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody". Is ready for her teenage years, having already perfected her exasperated sigh and dramatic eye-roll.

    Hoss- aka DS1. Kindergartener and resident spirited child. His aunt likes to call him "the evil genius" because of his penchant for letting a lack of intellectual stimulation lead him into mischief. Likes trucks, sports, building things and burping. His current favorite word is "underwear."

    Lil Joe- aka DS2. Born in 2003. Doesn't say much we can understand, but has mastered the important stuff ("eat!", "Wash hands!", "Want chocolate ones!", "Hockey game!") Likes to push buttons, much to the consternation of whoever is trying to watch a DVD. Firmly refuses to use the potty, despite evidence that he is physically ready to be out of diapers, indicating a level of stubborn that eclipses even that of his parents and siblings.

    Me? I'm the Mama. That's all you need to know.
