Nothing Gold

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay. -Robert Frost

I am a white American middle class suburban housewife trying desperately to tell herself that that is not who she is. One time I was a glowing young ruffian. Oh my God it was a million years ago.

A Strange Coincidence?

I have an interesting story to tell, but it has the word period in it a lot. Just a warning, in case that bothers you.

On Monday my mom started her period. This is unusual because she hasn't had one for 6 months or so (menopause). My sister Leah has an IUD and doesn't get periods, but she started one on Monday as well. My sister Claire also started hers on Monday, which is not really weird by itself. My sister Mary, who is 13 started her very first period on Monday. None of these women live together. None of them even live in the same city.

Schuyler says he is forced to think it is just a very strange coincidence. ( this even though he scoffs at making your data fit your assumptions :) )

I think it is something else, but I don't know what. Ideas?

Happy Anniversary, Schuyler. I love you!


Graduation (high school)

The Beach (duh!)

Oh yeah, today is Peter's birthday too!

It's hard to find pictures together after we had kids. All the pictures are of the kids or maybe one or the other of us and one of the kids. Hmm... I still feel like we're romantic and all that. It's been 9 years and we're still one of those annoying couples that does everything together. Maybe we just don't like to look at ourselves as much as we did then. Looking back over the years Schuyler has gotten better and better looking, while I've sort of gone the opposite direction. Not really fair, but I've grown some good kids, so probably worth it. And our kids are a big part of our relationship now. Here's a recent picture of the whole family:

I really love that dude.
