School Update

School is going along fine. In fact, anoth­er semes­ter is almost done for me, and Katie’s almost at the end of her semes­ter, too. She’s kick­ing ass and tak­ing names. Now that she’s set­tled aca­d­e­m­i­cal­ly, she’s stretch­ing out into some extracur­ric­u­lar stuff and mak­ing more friends. We’ve man­aged to con­nect with a Girl Scout troop, […]

Is there a pentagram badge?

A his­tor­i­cal arti­cle, writ­ten in 2001. In an intro­duc­to­ry post to a news­group, I men­tioned at one point that my part­ner and I have been active in start­ing a CUUPs (Covenant of Uni­tar­i­an Uni­ver­sal­ist Pagans) chap­ter in our area, and also that I had just start­ed train­ing to be a Girl Scout leader. The com­bi­na­tion of […]

I’m a Girl Scout!

Yep, I’m a 39-year-old Girl Scout. In fact, all three of the humans in our house­hold are reg­is­tered Girl Scouts—myself, Katie, and yes, even Sam. Men can be reg­is­tered as adult Scouts. Katie’s troops have always asked that at least one, and prefer­ably both (or more if there are more!) par­ents in a fam­i­ly register […]

Katie’s at Camp!

If you haven’t received a mes­sage from me giv­ing you access to the camp web­site and you want access to it, please give me an email address. The web­site lets you send emails to her while she’s there and view pho­tos :-) They print out the email mes­sages once a day and give them to […]

How’d That Happen?

Some­thing led me to start updat­ing the fibromyal­gia sec­tion of my web­site. One of the pages got longer and longer ’til I start­ed break­ing it up into small­er pages. Before actu­al­ly upload­ing it to the web­site, I real­ized that it isn’t a web any­thing any­more. It’s a book out­line. I don’t know that the world […]

It’s Saturday

sam­bear’s daugh­ter Genevieve is here for a vis­it, which is good. We’ve also been blessed by hav­ing mayre­mi here for the past few days. Def­i­nite­ly good stuff! We’re about to be invad­ed by more teens for a wel­­come-home gam­ing par­ty for Genevieve.  Katie leaves for camp tomor­row. I’ve been rel­a­tive­ly qui­et this week, due to a […]

Jewish Kids at Easter

I don’t remem­ber if I post­ed this before or not, but I left it in a com­ment in gina­mariewade’s jour­nal and remem­bered that y’all might enjoy the sto­ry. A for­mer Girl Scout co-leader and her very Jew­ish fam­i­ly hap­pened to be in a restau­rant on East­er morn­ing. Her girls, about 6 and 7 at the time, […]
