The Big 40

Well then. Honestly, what do you say? My parents and my siblings must feel *really* old today, since I’m the youngest of the family.

But as my dad always said, it’s not like the only other option is any good, so you may as well grow old.

Thanks all for the lovely gifts and well wishes and your support in these recent years. To 50! To Cronedom! (I am glad that we get to do this milestone together, at least. Having the same bday as your partner is sometimes annoying, but this year, it’s a relief.)

Recent Interview

While I was in Milwaukee, I did an interview for a local paper and entirely forgot to mention it. It’s a little more recent then a million others I’ve done, so it might answer some questions about what the hell I’m doing in WI & other mysteries of life. (I especially love the bit about how my “writing exudes a Midwestern no-nonsense practicality.”)

Happy Moms Day

A very happy mother’s day to all the mothers out there – male, female, or otherwise.

& To our own two, of course. As May babies, we have always shared the week with our moms, and sometimes even the day itself (when the 13th lands on a Sunday).

Turning 40

In a few days, we’ll turn 40. People have asked if there’s anything in particular we want, which is sweet.

So here’s the list:

Or you can just wish us a happy 40th in the comments below!
