sitting on the edge of the sandbox, biting my tongue

Housekeeping Projects

Yelena’s pre-school is out for Shavuot, so it’s a madhouse here.  At this moment my son seized my daughter’s toy stroller, and is pretending that it’s a truck.  She, on her part, seized his truck and is pretending that it’s a high chair for her baby.  Because it’s a madhouse here, I can’t write the kind of post where I get to pretend I’m still in grad school.  So I’m going to do some rearranging.

First, my blog roll is a mess, so I’ll try to bring some order to it.

Second, a hear a mommy blogger (am I a mommy blogger?) is supposed to have a review page.  So I’ll create links to my amazon and Anthropologie reviews.  I don’t think a mommy blogger is expected to have an Anthropologie review page, but since I have it already, ostensibly to let my cousin in New York know about my shopping adventures, why not link to it?

Third, all you ladies googling Huma Abedin’s wedding dress, come and take a look:

I can use the traffic.

Finally, to the person googling “black stuff on my tongue,” please go to the doctor.



  1. “black stuff on my tongue”
    That was me.
    Love, Hypo

  2. Hey Edge, sounds like you’re keeping busy! I have Jewish family, so I really should know what Shauvot is without having to google it… meanwhile, the last final exam tomorrow, and school is officially out (I teach, and believe me, the teachers are giddier than the kids, heh).

    Thanks also for adding me to your blogroll– I did likewise. 🙂

  3. Beautiful dress! Too bad Weiner already soiled it.

  4. We are supposed to have a review page? What’s this? I didn’t know about this.
    Speaking of not being able to write what you want to write, I’m having your day too only involving half day Fridays and umbrellas indoors.

  5. Vicky, Harrison,
    Sounds like you are going to post a lot in the coming months. 😉
    American Housewife,
    I don’t remember where I saw it. Actually, I’m mostly doing it because it sounds fun.

  7. ROTFL at the search term madness. And we’re supposed to have a review page? Hmm. If I were in a state that I could use Amazon referrals, I would. Bastard legislature.

    Also laughing re the chaos. Since we banned tv for pjToddler a month ago, I had to start blogging during naptime since my 30 minutes of Diego was eliminated. Now she’s refusing to nap and going to bed earlier. Sigh. It’s always something!

    • I’m mostly going to do reviews for my own enjoyment. I don’t feel like most book reviews belong to this blog, but they’d be fun to do.
      We might be moving into no nap territory as well. When they nap, both of them nap, but if they don’t nap, they don’t nap together. They still stay in their room, if not in their beds, though.

  8. Ladies, keep quiet time as long as you can. Who cares if they nap, but if you can keep them going to their rooms for an hour or two of quiet play do it and defend it as long as you can.

    • I’m trying to, although in our house it’s not really quiet time, it’s in the bedroom time.

  9. Huma, Huma, HUMA. Get yourself a crave case of White Castle sliders, better taste in men and a divorce lawyer-STAT.

    But I gotta say, your wedding dress really is stunning.
