Just walked 3 miles in a blizzard (OK–maybe it’s just “heavy snow”???)–but it was FUN!!

My sister blessed me (yet again!) with a haircut in a groovy northside Chicago salon … And after a LONG time waiting for a cab (cabs are VERY hard to get in the snow!!), I totally knew that I could walk back to my sister’s home NO PROB. So I bundled up and headed out the door. It was GREAT. …

Weep with those who weep …

I don’t know why, but a number of people asked me this past weekend about the baby we lost in 2007. Their questions weren’t inappropriate or insensitive … I was just surprised at how many times I was talking about him or her. (We never did know the baby’s gender even though we were just heading into the second trimester.) …
