Babies And Blogging And Bacon, Oh My

posted by Catherine Connors

Oh, hey. Ever wondered what I sound like? No? Didn’t think so. But on the off-chance that you have been dying to know whether I have a high, chirpy Meg Ryan voice, or a low throaty Kathleen Turner voice or […]

That’s Why We Pray

posted by Catherine Connors

I’ve written about prayer a few times here. I’ve been pretty clear that I’m ambivalent about the idea the idea of intercessory prayer – that is, of praying to God to intervene in the life of others, to save a […]

Are We Having Fun Yet?

posted by Catherine Connors

So I’m somewhere in Michigan City, just outside of Chicago, and I have to say: although I wept more than few times yesterday, and although the coffee in this Super 8 motel is reason enough to weep further, I’m kind […]

(Nearly) Worldless Wednesday: BlogHer Flashback Edition

posted by Catherine Connors

Me at my first BlogHer conference, in 2006. Yes, those are pasties. And a fake tattoo. Both of which make one look way more confident than one feels. (Which, yes: I am far less confident, far less outgoing, than I […]

Geeks Of A Feather Flock In The Corners

posted by Catherine Connors

In two days, I’m traveling to Chicago for BlogHer. BlogHer is like Comic-Con, except with more women and babies and far fewer Trekkies. It vibrates at about the same geek frequency, though, which is something that too many people forget, […]

Dear Time Magazine: And Your Problem With Women Struggling With PPD Is What, Exactly?

posted by Catherine Connors

I kinda thought that debates about the reality and severity of post-partum depression were settled well before Tom Cruise made an ass of himself prattling on about exercise and vitamins, but apparently not. Time Magazine published an article last week […]

Wordless Wednesday, Nostalgia-In-Lieu-Of-An-Eulogy Edition

posted by Catherine Connors

My grandparents, on a road trip in British Columbia in the early 1940’s. I’d like to think that I retraced some of their steps the other week. But even if I didn’t, the BC portion of my trip is still […]

Oh, Boy

posted by Catherine Connors

This? Is Jasper. Throwing a fit. Which probably doesn’t seem all that extraordinary, in itself. Little boys and girls throw fits and hurl their little bodies to the ground and kick and scream. But there’s the rub: little boys and […]

Home Is Where The Cocoa Is

posted by Catherine Connors

We traveled a great distance last week, and the week before that. From one Canadian coast to the other, and then some. And we saw and did a great many things, and we had a great many adventures. But end […]

Best friends: July 7, 2007. Who’da thunk these stroller buddies would become cross-country road-trippers? A Wordless Wednesday Jam, or rather, a Wordless This Wednesday In History Wednesday Jam. Because I am forgetting too much. Join me if you feel so […]

Miles To Go Before I Sleep

posted by Catherine Connors

Today is my grandfather’s funeral. Today I set aside the hum and buzz and happy thrill of traveling with my children and with dear friends and take a moment to say goodbye to Grandpa. Who I loved. Who I will […]

Take Me Home, Mountain Roads

posted by Catherine Connors

We’ve spent the last few days driving through Jasper and Banff National Parks. These are the roads of my childhood, the places of summer holidays and trips to visit family and long, leisurely drives looking for the perfect campsite. It […]

A Journey Is Worth A Thousand Naps

posted by Catherine Connors

It is wonderful to be traveling with the kids. It is also very, very difficult. It is wonderful for all the usual reasons. Their excitement at seeing new things. Their enjoyment of swimming pools and street performers and hotel bathrooms […]
