I am home. Not by choice, but home never the less. One of the ways I try to fill my days is to be a homemaker. Sometimes that means, however rarely, that I clean. Other times that can be defined... Continue reading

There literally is a ring around my finger. Actually two rings. Okay, scars in the shape of rings. The lighter one, more faded less noticeable, is from my engagement ring. It was on and off my finger over the years.... Continue reading

I am sitting in my way too comfortable bed listening to my crazy little purse dog chew the pine sap off his paws. It's an exciting Friday night, isn't it? There has been a lot going on in my life,... Continue reading

This is the three of us, heading into our 21st year together. Openess has worked and been the best thing for our relationship in the adoption. I can't imagine not being able to turn to this other mother to share... Continue reading

I'm kind of driving myself crazy today. There is a lot I should be doing, some things I could be doing, and yet what am I doing? Nada. Bubble spinner. True Blood. Lusting after guys less than half my age... Continue reading

In the last 48 hours, I've been startled by the death of two women I know. One of them, I've known fairly well for the last 10 years. The other I've known by face, enough to say "hi" as we... Continue reading

So I'm breaking all sorts of rules with this post- 1) Drunk blogging. Okay, buzzed blogging. I had 3 (maybe 4) glasses of wine this afternoon at Rory's grad party. I shouldn't drive or type, but I am. The latter,... Continue reading

I don't think it's cool or gross. Nursing is nursing. I did it until my youngest was 2. I wouldn't have posed for a magazine, but that's because by that time breasts were like pillow cases without pillows. My kid wouldn't have had to stand on a chair to reach them. Still today I roll them up to get cleavage. Breastfeeding might be sexy there, but I can tell you as ghost of Christmas future, not so much in the future. As for the model not wearing a bra. She has no body fat. She doesn't need a bra. It has nothing to do with age, but body type. And MH, you are on fire tonight.

It's me, the Jehovah's Witness of eliminating simple carbs, coming around again. It's been 6 weeks. It's still easy, still working. I feel better, I feel in control of my eating. This is how in control I am I made... Continue reading

I want to knock on all your doors, and say " Have you heard about Jesus, er, I mean, simple carbs?" I'm reading stuff on nutrtion all the damn time. It's like when you want to get pregnant and everywhere... Continue reading

So, I feel like I have the eating under control, even though it's been less than a month. Dudes, no one is more shocked than I am. I'm eating healthy and am not plagued with visions of pie or french... Continue reading

I don't remember if I've written much on weight the last seven years since I've been blogging (Yes. Seven. Years). Maybe a time or two. I really consider diet and weight a private issue. I've spent most of my life... Continue reading

You know, I've been meaning to write about the adoption storyline on Parenthood for a long time. A couple of weeks ago I decided I would just wait until the season played out. Tonight it did. If you've got it... Continue reading

If I had written yesterday , you would have just hard about everything pissing me off. Some of it justified, some of it not so much. Then I read it was Blue Monday and decided to take that cosmic explanation.... Continue reading

So, I've totally screwed the pooch with NaBloPoMo, eh? Things bouncing back and forth in my brain like a ping pong game gone astray. Mal will be 18 in 12 days. It seems really significant. Like we've taken this person... Continue reading

So, I've got a confession. A couple of years ago I watched the Real Housewives of OC. I probably saw six episodes. Too many to admit in public, and too few to remember the character's names. I guess they aren't... Continue reading
