Best Misadventure Ever

July 23, 2010

We spent yesterday traipsing around downtown Buenos Aires, having the best misadventure of our trip. Plan A: Martin takes Ian and some of the older cousins to an art museum downtown, while I stay home with the girls. Except it was a beautiful day, and the kids were going stir crazy. So… Plan B: We [...]

Happy 3rd Birthday, Serena Rose!

July 12, 2010

My baby is three. Her birthday was actually on Friday, July 9, which is also the Argentine independence day. We spent the whole day having a BBQ in the backyard. Argentine’s are simply mad about BBQ. They all (at least, all the affluent houses in this neighborhood), have these huge hand-built brick BBQ ovens in [...]

What To Do In Buenos Aires?

July 6, 2010

So far, our days in Argentina have been all about getting our bearings. We’ve gone for long slow walks around the neighborhood. Played along the riverfront. Spent time with family. Taken naps. Shopped for a few essentials we neglected to pack, or discovered we needed after arriving. It’s been exhausting, just landing here. We’re on [...]

A Time of Few Words

June 17, 2010

I’ve been sick for two weeks, with a chest infection that made it impossible for me to talk for most of a week, and merely uncomfortable for a week after that. I am finally – today – done with the medicine for my bronchitis. I have bruised ribs from coughing so much. I’m very tired. [...]

Useful Lessons In Repsonsible Adulthood

April 28, 2010

So I celebrated Earth Day by driving more than I normally do in a month, taking my kids to McDonald’s for the first time in their lives, and impulse buying plastic toys. In other words, we went on a road trip. I love road trips, but I’ve been pretty gun shy about doing them with [...]

Heading South For the Winter

March 24, 2010

The Southern winter, that is. Martin just bought the plane tickets for our family to spend the entire month of July in Argentina with his family. He grew up there, and was the only one to leave. His parents and three siblings all live within a few miles of each other in Buenos Aires, with [...]

US Airways: the Final Chapter

February 24, 2010

So we flew home yesterday, and our flights were entirely unremarkable. The gate staff and flight attendants were polite and helpful. Despite numerous phone calls and e-mails, no one was able to sort out our seating issues before we arrived at the airport, but once we were there we had no problem getting excellent seats [...]

Ok, so we don’t actually live in the airport. But in that ‘where the heart’ is way, we just got home and it’s bliss.

Best of Web: Airline Fail Edition

February 21, 2010

Usually this posts on Sundays, but I’m on vacation. Also, there is no usually. Deal. For some reason, my attention this week has been on the epic failure that is modern airline customer service. It’s been a crazy week for the friendly skies. On Spirit Air, an entire family was kicked off a plane because [...]

Nerve endings

February 19, 2010

Well, hello there Internet. It’s been an interesting 15 minutes. I hope some of you are enjoying this blog, and will hang around for the bits that are not ranting at big corporations (which is most of it, really). Apparently people really love to hate on airlines. And on traveling moms. I had no idea [...]
