Mothering From Afar



I can’t say that I’ve always seen eye to eye with departing Congresswoman Heather Wilson, but part of me has a soft spot for her. You see, we’re both members of a fairly small club – the club of Albuquerque mothers who commute by jet to work.



Long distance commuting wasn’t what I set out to do when I started down my career path. Like most people, I assumed that I’d get my education and then get a… Continue

Hanukkah and Christmas are almost here! Below are some reviews of great new books our staff liked.



Don't Look Now by Daphne Du Maurier

Patrick McGrath (introduction)

(Random House $15.95)


Daphne du Maurier wrote some of the most compelling and creepy novels of the twentieth century. In books like Rebecca, My Cousin Rachel, and Jamaica Inn she transformed the small dramas of everyday life-love, grief, jealousy-into the stuff of nightmares. Less known,… Continue

Buying a house together, when only one of you is getting the mortgage.

Question:

My partner and I are planning to buy a house together, but we will get a much better rate if I am the only one on the mortgage. What is the best way to move forward so that we both own the property, but we get the best financing possible?



Answer:

When a couple goes to buy a house, they often find out that one person is in much better shape financially than the other. In this case, as in yours, it’s better for one person to take out the mortgage on the house. The… Continue

Tonight we used the ZipCar for the first time.

Tonight we used the ZipCar for the first time.



We had a tight time frame - I had an 8 PM house call that was 90 minutes - and the bus ends its service around 6:30 PM on Sunday evenings.



Fortunately, the ZipCar was right where they said it would be - .42 miles from our house - and my office is mid-way - so we got right to the ZipCar the moment our reservation began - at 8 PM - and then ran back to my office to pick some house call stuff up.



The ZipCar we got is a… Continue

Life update

Hedwig continues to consume most of my life. Last week's thursday show was quite awesome, as it so happened that Brian Lucero (Hedwig) slammed his face into the stage during the deconstruction (during the song, "Exquisite corpse"), and proceeded to stand up, bleeding profusely from his face. We all of course took it in, and used it to finish the play in high fashion.



The rest of the shows have been quite good, save for tonight, which was very hard to get thru, being that the creeping… Continue

Birds in the Hood

I originally wrote about sauntering into Fredrico's hair salon at Montgomery and Tramway with an outdated copy of Bon Appetit in my hand that had a picture of Candice Bergen on the last page and telling him to make my hair look like hers, much to the dismay of some guy on the other side of the universe, but I decided that posting pictures of the birds in the hood was infinitely more interesting. Maybe. Besides that, you can listen to my Christmas music (and yes, Marilyn Monroe singing… Continue

Holiday Request

When tailgating the Fed Ex truck (I mean you black Acura), pay attention, please. Honking angrily at the FedEx guy when he parks in front of a house iand you almost rear end him s not appropriate holiday behavior. Especially because, well, it's the holidays and there's a distinct possibility the FedEx guy MIGHT be stopping at multiple houses this time of year and furthermore if you're not careful, when he gets to yours, you may just get a big package of coal.
