A Profound Look Back at the Week: August 30 – September 5

It’s officially here. Autumn, that is. So is our new kitchen. Things are happening, which tells me the extra-dose of real-lifing I was forced to take this summer (which is now on its way out in case anyone has not committed this to memory) is now paying off. Or is it? Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: August 30 – September 5

A Profound Look Back at the Week: August 23-29

It pleases me immensely to report that this year, for the first time in possibly forever but certainly in years, I had the pleasure of seeing the first signs of autumn in August. Yes, I noticed the “pleases” and “pleasure” and I couldn’t care less. It’s coming! Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: August 23-29

A Profound Look Back at the Week: June 14-20

Summer camp week is over and let me just say I’m happy it’s over. The past seven days have made me question a lot of my choices in life, such as, you know, the choice of becoming a parent, and have led to profound philosophical insight, namely, that humans are masochists and that’s why they reproduce.

A Profound Look Back at the Week: May 17-23

Another busy week has just ended and with it several things such as Little C.’s school year and my driving lessons. It’s the end of a (short) era and the beginning of another. I like moments like this. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: May 17-23

A Profound Look Back at the Week: April 12-18

In this week’s edition of the PLBW we’ve got a coupe of amazing discoveries, a fashion statement, and a rant about the universe’s clearly stubborn decision to not let me have homegrown cherry tomatoes. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: April 12-18

A Profound Look Back at the Week: April 5-11

It has been quite a busy week and not just with walking the cat on a leash because this is how he gets his fresh air now, since he can’t be trusted with complete freedom yet.
