What Could It Be?

With a week to go until Christmas, I am in my prime.

So of course when I saw this in my bedroom I became intrigued:


I know it’s for me because my husband is the one who put this gift there and I’m the only person he shops for.

So like I always do, I started bugging him about it.

ME:  “Why is there a trash bag inside this gift bag?”

HIM:  “I didn’t have a box big enough for it.”

ME:  “What is it?”

HIM (laughing) “I’m not telling.”

As the tradition goes, I start asking twenty questions.

HIM:  “I’ll answer one and that’s it.”

ME:  “Okay.  Does it have anything to do with the Patriots?”

My husband hesitated for a moment and then heaved a big “Yes”.

Damn.  It’s not big enough to be Gronk or Tom.  And it’s not breathing.

Later on in the day I discovered this in the bedroom:


At least he found a box big enough for it and he wrapped it.  Still, I’m intrigued.  And I think the box moved….



I'm a writer. I'm also a wife and a parent who works too much and lives too little. In addition to writing I also love to read, listen to music, travel, cook, I enjoy looking for bargains at flea markets or thrift stores, Christmas, football and of course writing! How did I come up with the title of my blog? Two things: 1. I live in New England (duh) and 2. Canadian singer Alan Frew once arrogantly told me to "get a New England life"--again--DUH! I already HAVE one!

Tell me what you think!
