This is for you, Patrick Brown   5 comments



It’s been said that I have stopped posting because I’m all Facebook crazy. Not true. Facebook requires one line of updating, a blog post, on the contrary, requires thought –a beginning, middle and end and some editing (though not today). But since I’ve been called out, I’m blogging, even though I have nothin to say…. Except this. Life lately has been CA-RAZY. I’ll give you a glimpse, I am sure you will pity me, maybe even go out and purchase a copy of my new book about finding love at Christmas and also, there are pages and pages of Sudoku puzzles in it (it’s called Please Excuse My Daughter ).

Okay, here’s my day. God willing, I wake up. Then get Violet up, feed FIVE DOGS (we are dogsitting my dear friend Deb Kogan’s dog Lucas, a “Havanese” which when I told my father, caused him to make several jokes about Fidel Castro). Then feed Violet and fill her lunch box with a very complicated mix –it’s my own morning Manhattan Project. (note to self: riff about Violet’s lunch somewhere for money) and take her to school 30+ blocks away which ends up taking an hour and ten bucks because we’re always late and having to take a cab which the minute we get in to Violet threatens to throw up because it smells “yucky”. Then I come home (hey, wake up, this is good stuff!) walk the dogs in two shifts, settle down to write/go to the gym/clean house/do laundry/think about dinner when it’s time to walk the dogs again and go pick up Violet from the very place I just dropped her off at. After school she likes to go to Starbucks for a cup of $9.00 hot cocoa and cookie– it’s a little special down time just for her and me and 500 screaming Upper West Siders who then pack into the bus with us to go home. There are never any seats and a minimum of five people talking about lice.

I forgot to mention that throughout the day I have to pick up the fossilized puppy poopy which is very consuming, and I think, bad for my carbon footprint.

So that’s it. I promise to blog more. And very soon (think next week!) I will be announcing the People of the Year… It’s an exciting time for us all. Now I have to go. (Tell me, was it worth it?)

  1. In short: yes, yes it was worth it. (Oh, and have you considered Twitter? I think you would become a twitter all star in short order.)

  2. I agree–worth the wait. Please bring your dogs over here. I want to kiss them.

  3. Thank you Edan… I wish we had some kind of jet pack to get us back and forth quickly -if just for the dog’s sake.
