Commandments for working while Juniper is in Daycare

1. Spend as much time as possible working. Breaks for eating are ok but leave dishes in sink. No housework, no errands unless they absolutely can’t happen while Juniper’s with you. 2. If you’re tired, do jumping jacks and drink coffee. Ignore the “I don’t feel like it” attitude, you do feel like it, just […]

Things I used to do, a retrospective

The end of the year is quickly approaching and I thought instead of a resolution list, I’d make a list of things I used to do, or do less of now. I used to buy lunch nearly every day. Now I bring my lunch nearly every day. I used to have three credit cards. Now […]

Ok, for over a week now I’ve been in a hormone tornado. I can’t stand it. I feel so, so awful. And as part of feeling awful, I feel like I weigh 5000 pounds. I weepily logged into my new Kaiser Permanente website tonight to see what they had in the way of weight loss […]

Ghost in you

I discovered photos of me from 1987 this weekend involving lots of hair spray, hair dye, black clothes, and black eyeliner. Sunday morning I awoke from terrible nightmares… reliving old feelings of being on a proverbial […]

Does The Author's Identity Matter?

Before I begin, let me just say, I am frightened of a country where even one single person would support Sarah Palin as the next VP of America. What a world. What a world. I should also note that on November 4th, I will proudly vote for the Obama/Biden ticket because I believe they will […]
