How I Finally Got Over My Dining Room I LOVE TO COOK, but I have hosted exactly one sit-down dinner party in the past 15 years (funny how that matches the age of our kids). This year, though, I agreed to host one of the school’s “Night of 100 Dinners” fundraisers. When the email came, I mentally rattled off my usual excuses (my table’s too small, not everyone likes lasagna). But then “Party with a Purpose,” on page 108, took care of my decor and menu problems. Still, my biggie remained: What would people think of my dining room? Five years ago, when we were on vacation, my daughter Sophia saw how much fun I had playing Ms. Pac-Man at an arcade, and she whispered to her father that it would be a…

“i have you now”

YEARS AGO, we had a sweet basset hound named Ramona. One day I found a lump on her back and freaked out, assuming the worst. A trip to the vet revealed it to be nothing more than a common blob of fat. Ugly, but not deadly. So I wasn’t worried when Roscoe, our rescue dachshund, developed a bump on his right thigh. This time, though, the vet visit led to a CAT scan and a grim cancer diagnosis. Surgery might buy some time but would be unable to save him. Feel free to insert a string of profanity. I know I did. Yet here we are, five months later. Roscoe remains mostly as he was—a neurotic little alien, full of quirks (he’s scared of hands) and love (he’s very attached to me) and…
