One, Two, Three, Go

Tomorrow at 9am I'll begin a weekend job with two children under the age of three. I'll be done Sunday evening. That is a lot of time on my own with very small children who are intent on flinging themselves off of play structures. I'm not sure if I'll have a vehicle to drive them places in or not. If I do, it's the zoo, baby. If not, please come over. All of you. I've got the pool pass.


We are participating in an Orthodox Christian fast until some day in July, and I say "some day in July" because I am pretty sure I'll be breaking the fast over doughnuts and frozen hot chocolate in NYC before it's really over*. In the meantime, though, what this mostly means is that we are vegans who don't drink wine. I miss butter. Also milk on my cereal. And I'd like to blame this neck ache on the fast, too, if that's all right.


I seem to have overbooked myself for the entire month of June. I am now seeking a mint-making intern. You will be paid in cream cheese mints, which you will eat on the sly when I am not looking. Please apply by calling, e-mailing, texting, or just showing up at my house.

*New Yorkers: I'll be making my annual trip to Connecticut and NYC July 6 - 13. Not sure which days I'll be in the city, but if you'd like to meet up, please give me a shout.
