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, […]
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.

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 […]
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 […]
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.
