Oh, The Weight of the Guilt

The mommy guilt, that is. I work ten hours a week on a contract that should have been up in November of 2004, but which continues to drag on and on and on. It is hard to complain, when i can work at home, be with my little man, and get paid for it. It […]

L&D (Laborious and No Delivery)

I had some bleeding the other day. Here is what I wrote about the experience the next day. (yeah, yeah, I’m a little behind.) Okay, so i called the mw this a.m. and they told me to come in and get checked. They would work me in. Nurse Jackie puts the monitor thingy on me […]

The Ultimate Sacrifice

No, not that ultimate sacrifice. . . . I’m talking about the one where my husband kills the snake. That’s right, my total stud of a husband did not hesitate to defend his home and family from the looming threat of the snake. For those that don’t me well, i have a small phobia of […]

Major League Debut

Last night, Todd came home with four tix to the Braves/Cubs game. For all of his efforts at avoiding attending the baseball game with his toddler son and 7-months pregnant wife, he could only find one other friend to go with him, so Rollie and I decided to take the two extra tickets. [evil laugh] […]

I often think about what it means to be […]

To Poo in Peace

I really miss being able to take a dump in peace. Nowadays, The Boy is with me EVERY single SECOND of every day. I can’t even poop by myself. Today, i opened the door to the downstairs bath to go in and poop (The Angelic Husband wasn’t there) hoping that The Boy would just play […]

Thank Heaven for Little Boys

The Husband and I watched the movie Thirteen last night. (Yes, we are behind the times. To have a baby is to knock out a complete year of popular culture from your memory.) Neither one of us is particularly naive about some of the more unsavory activities of teenagers – We are not Angels ourselves, […]
