My Quarantine Buddy

So, here we are. Another week, some more physical distancing. I realized that while I have been talking a lot about how I have been feeling during this crazy time, without really thinking about how it has affected my marriage and then when I went to think about how it affected my marriage it was […]

Epic Laughter…Only Somewhat at My Expense

I plopped myself down on our living room floor last night to do my German homework. I took a big, deep breath. After a long day of working, my German homework usually isn’t the thing I want to dedicate myself to. Just in case you’re curious, no, I did not just decide to pick up […]

Hug Your Chicken

When you walk into the supermarket and there is nothing left on the shelves it’s very hard not to panic. When you are told to stop hugging. When you are told to isolate yourself from the outside world, that too, makes it really hard not to freak out. When you aren’t getting good information or […]

Watch Me, But Don’t Look At Me

Chelsea as a three year-old: Dad! Daddy! Come watch my dance! I just made it up! Hurry! Dad: Okay, Pookadella, we’re coming! Chelsea: Okay, but you can only watch me…don’t look at me, okay? This is a conversation I had with my parents time and time again. When I was just a little girl I […]

Occasionally Turning Into A Turtle

As we walked down the winding streets of Hamburg, Germany, the freezing cold wind whipped our faces. I had buried my chin into my scarf, but my breath was so hot and the air was so cold after about 10 seconds it was already humid in my little cocoon. I was cold and tired and […]

A Little Vomit and Some Holiday Cheer

First of all, I have to make a slight amendment to my last post. I had said that I was doing away with being obsessed with traditions, but after a really special conversation with my lovely mother-in-law, I am seeing things a bit differently. She pointed out to me that it’s not about doing away […]

Baby Tevye Celebrating Christmas

I am a stickler when it comes to traditions. I always want everything to be just how it was when I was a kid. Always. No changing. Got it? I’m like a mini Tevye from Fiddler on the Roof, “Tradition, tradition, tradition!”  I have always easily welcomed new people into our family’s traditions, but I […]

We’re All Human, Babe.

I have always been particular about my hair. My Dad will certainly tell you that I would easily freak out if my hair wasn’t always perfect…or at least what I thought was perfect. I didn’t like my curly hair until I was in college and I used to ask my Dad to blow dry it […]
