My computer was out of commission for a while doing some picture updates (back ups, etc).. so I didn’t post over the long weekend. I’m bummed about that, but I have a short window here while the kids watch tv and the baby naps to blurt some things out. So on Memorial day, after thinking […]

If breastfeeding weren’t best, then formula companies wouldn’t try so hard to say how ‘formulated to be closest to mother’s […]
Lately, I feel like all I do is sit fences. One foot on one side. One foot on the other. Listening to the rodeo on one side, and the audience on the other. Sure there’s all manner of each type of folk-from clown (shudder) to gentry. I just don’t know enough about any one topic […]
I was watching as on TV this mom of 2 (less than 2 years apart) who had just battled cancer and was wearing the same drab stuff day after day teared up, saying ‘I want to look better, but I don’t even see myself in the mirror’…and the person helping her (with a quick makeover) […]
The answer is: not a whole lot.
I’m behind in just about everything and trying not to let it get to me. I’m still fighting sinus issues that either leave me with a headache or raw throat or random sneezing that’s not a cold, not really anything, but just.. blech. Not enough to bother me, but […]
You probably wouldn’t know it if you know me ‘online’ but I’m a huge introvert. And nerd. I’ll save that for another post though. As the 3rd and final child, only girl and complete shrimp of the family, I was often overlooked. My mom listened to my opinions, but being so outnumbered I gave up […]
The Unboy Boy by Richa Jha
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received this book as a part of the first reads preview program from GoodReads.com. I was interested in it because it hits a popular hot button in ‘the parent wars’ of boys being seen as ‘not masculine’ because they don’t show a lot of […]
As soon as the Christmas trees are clearanced out, hearts and candies and frilly cards are in the stores. A lot of us have just gone through the travesty of traveling with their kids to 15 relatives houses who all are perfectly mobile but think ‘it’s too far for me to drive’–forgetting that traveling with […]
If I get to the computer once or twice a day, I’m lucky. I do a lot of my thinking at the keyboard, because otherwise, my hands are full and I’m busy thinking about what I’m doing. Changing diapers, refilling cups of milk repeatedly, wiping fingers, tushies, and faces, making sure hair gets brushed once […]
I’ve come to a crossroads I suppose. I still get carded for alcohol, but even if a ‘young’ man was ever going to look in my direction (I’ll never be a MILF, ya’ll), I’m crossing into the ‘older’ category where they’re not going to anymore. Pretty soon I’ll be checking the 35-40 box on surveys. […]
