Root Canal Pt. 1

  I had a root canal retreatment today. This is not to be confused with a root canal treatment. A retreatment means, in my case, that you had a root canal some time ago, but neglected to do Part 2, the important part, the part where you get a crown put over the top of […]

Thanksgiving 2017: The Band

Well, another successful Thanksgiving year come and gone, replete with all the sugary trimmings, family drama, and dinner table repartee. I look forward to this time of year because as a writer, I love the family fights. It makes such amazing material. This year also marked what will hopefully result in a new tradition: the […]

Happy Halloween 2017

Happy Halloween from your nicheless blogger — Amy Bronwen Zemser.  I don’t know what I’m doing with this website anymore. I have no goals, no niche, no demographic, no plan. I do have a cautionary tale, however. I practically died last night. Halloween with three kids is always busy with costumes and squash-soup making and tea […]

Our Two Cats, Martin Luther and Rosie (Crazy Eyes Mouse Killa).

Greetings from the blog! Some recent news: 1. All three of my children now attend public school. 2. I am no longer breastfeeding my twins. 3. Lynn and I are still together. 4. We are now fostering kittens. We have re-homed ten, but are keeping these two. 5. Jefferson, our mini-schnauzer, has registered his dissatisfaction […]

Happy Halloween 2016

My twin girls are staunch archetypes. One is tomboy; the other is femme. Ella wore a sparkly mermaid costume and Lucy […]

Happy New Year 2016: Looking Forward to this Year’s Resolutions

Here’s Ray at 7 reading a book I wrote before he was born and got published shortly thereafter. It’s for the good ten-year-old reader but Ray has always been strong in the reading department. I didn’t tell him to read it. He found it somewhere buried in the piles, noticed the name on it was […]

Happy Fall, All…

Letter from the Editor

Dear Friends, Readers, Lovers, Homosexuals: I can’t believe I’ve fallen this far behind on my personal posts.  I apologize.  I’m writing the portion of How to Thaw Your Unborn Children that has to do with our experience of selecting a sperm donor, getting acquainted  with our fertility doctors (a laugh a minute!), and approaching my […]
