not yet running

…and running with a sprightly dog says my blog. I haven’t run in months and miss it so. Now that bug is born, I asked my midwife when can I run? When you feel up for it, she said. Bug is 12 days old today and I don’t feel up for it yet. But I am close. I went skate skiing yesterday and, man, it was different than it used to be.

Nouveau Bitch’s Night

Long before any of us had kids, I held a monthly soire at my house. Bitch’s Night. The premise was simple: ladies, come on over, bring other ladies, have a beverage or two.
