Hello and welcome to ThreeChannels.

I Don’t Know When I’ll Be Back…

I can’t take it any more…the endless questions, the whining, the homeschooling, the dieting, the woefully short hair, the laundry mountains, the french fry-encrusted van, the GF/CF diet, growth hormone shots, spilled pie, puppy pee, poison control…

Nahhhh.  You know I love that stuff.

For the last three years I have spent one week each Spring at the National Stationery Show in New York helping my best friend with her invitation company, Prints Charming.


I’m leaving tomorrow at lunchtime and will miss you all terribly.  I’ll think of you while I luxuriate in an East Village apartment, brunch at the Sunburnt Cow, browse purse-dealers in China town and check out all the new invitation designs at the Stationery Show.

I hope to return with a bevvy of fascinating stories, but since my children will be staying behind, I’m not sure I’ll have have the same quality to which many of you have become accustomed.

I’ll give it my best!

Tootles for a week!  I hope to check in but don’t think I’ll have computer access!

Miss me!

I’m jealous. Miss you already. Have a fabulous trip and put the diet on hiatus for that fascinating brunch.

Wow, I was just this morning fantasizing about what it would be like to be child-free for a week in a cool city. Hope you have fun! And be sure to share your stories, since I will have to experience this vicariously through you. At least for now.
