You’re hurridly putting laundry in the washer when it happens. A child screams ‘noooo’. You’re not sure which one. Your heart skips a beat. You’ll never get that one back. You rush in, your adrenaline surging, bile rising in your throat. You slide to a stop, looking at both, seemingly whole, unaffected children and screech … [Read more…]
Why does everything claim to have a special ‘seal’. Flavor seal, child resistant seal, and so on. I see no flippers, and hear no ‘ar ar’ bark. I confess myself: disappointed.
Well, I suppose if an ax murderer tried to get us tonight, he’d have really worked for it. A foot of snow outside, just making it down the driveway should earn him the right. Not to mention trudging through the snow to the door. Does the fact that I thought this make me weird? Fair … [Read more…]
So I gave up Facebook for Lent. I know. Shut up. It was a stupid idea, but I’m going through with it. I sent out messages to everyone with a Feb/March birthday in advance wishing them a happy day. I didn’t want to miss anyone. Really, Facebook is where all my friends live. Sad, but … [Read more…]

I’m thinking about the ultrasound. How the technician sent me out of the room to ‘finish up’ writing the notes on it. How weird it … [Read more…]
It was icy and slick this morning. We went nowhere and did nothing. That’s not true, we unloaded and reloaded the dishwasher, fed and entertained the kids, watched a couple of movies, I did a few loads of laundry, changed some diapers, folded 24 out of the 27 diapers we are currently using (yes we … [Read more…]
It’s very late Saturday night. Friday my parents came down and went with us to a trivia event to sponsor K’s club activity. It’s their only fundraiser. I also made 2 little baskets with cookies, candy, and a hand-stitched towel in them and they were auctioned off. 2 friends bought them, $22 total. Woohoo! I … [Read more…]
It’s time to get real about going to a doctor. The intermittent bleeding has not stopped. It’s been a month. It’s been 2 periods (if they were periods). Something is wrong. Googling the issues I’m having leads to pretty much 1 thing, and it’s not a good thing. I have ZERO risk factors for it, … [Read more…]
Mentally, emotionally, physically. Just. Blah.
