Marisa is born!

Sorry I haven't been around as often lately, I've been very busy with my little girl who was born on St Patty's day. She was 7 lbs 1 oz, and 19 inches. She is such a cutie, and she keeps me busy with those round-the-clock feeding every 2-3 hrs. I love all the cute sounds and motions she makes, and ...

I'm jealous of tall people because they can reach higher shelves without having to use a step stool.

Although there is an advantage to being shorter... it's easier to see items on the top shelf of the fridge without having to bend over. :)

It's been such a long time since I lived in college dorms, I can't remember how long our mattresses were. I thought they had extra long ones. I vaguely recall them telling us to make sure we had sheets that were long enough for them.

Re: My denunciation of HarperCollins dictionaries

I don't know if Collins Robert is related to Harper Collins. My Collins Robert Unabridged Fr-Eng dictionary has held up quite well over the years, and it's quite a big/heavy book. I have a number of hardcover dictionaries but haven't used them in a long long time so the spines are in great conditio...
