Ahhh, well. Hello there. Maybe you remember me from good ‘ol Busted Plumbing days, where I pretty much talked about cervical mucus and world domination… and were therefore wondering if I was hit by a large meteor. Or maybe you are new here, and have no clue what I’m talking about but you happened to google search “cervical mucus world domination”, in which case please let me know what that entails because I might want in. Either way, I’m doing a fresh start. Between my husband and I, when one or (more likely) both of us are being stupid, we’ll often look at one another and say “fresh start”. It means not having to say your sorry, and skipping right past those awkward moments that you have to endure after a fight. It means just going right back to awesome, and acting like nothing happened. It’s a very effective marital […]
There is much to catch you up on. Well… “much” is a bit of an overstatement. There’s a few to catch you up on. I think I can cram it into a few posts. But there is one thing that deserves a post, all on it’s own. You know what? I’m not even going to explain it. I’m just going to put this beautiful, beautiful train wreck out there for you to ponder in amazement for a full day before I tell you the story behind this. Behold… Why yes, those are gold elephants. And pink carpet.
Knock, knock, knock… anyone still out there? Figured Halloween would be an appropriate day to make my return from the proverbial grave. Hey there Bleeps! Usually I say sorry when I slack off a few weeks. It’s been, er, like five MONTHS. So I don’t even know what I could do to make it up to you. Kidney*? I wish I had a good reason. I was vaccinating orphans in Malaria, OBVIOUSLY. And there was no internet connection. So there. There will be much time for catching up, but for now… just wanted to say hi *Offer only good for first two entries.
Being a rookie to the parenthood thing, I am not yet accustomed to the politics that apparently go along with children playing together. On Sunday, Nurse Awesome (NA) and I took her kids and Tuckman to the kids play area at the mall. I’m always looking for anything to do that’s in air conditioning, and I’m sure a lot of other moms were thinking the same thing as the place was packed. Now, Tuckman being only six months, he was quite content to stay in the Ergo (BTW, BEST CARRIER EVER)and just watch the other kids play. But Nurse Awesome’s kids (a 3 year old boy and 1 year old girl) were out there ready to mix it up. Despite being crowded, there were plenty of objects to play on and with. A large lizard thing was a more popular item, closely situated to where NA and I were sitting. […]
Check out my post over at The Bird Flipper today. Even people who are aware of my antics are still like “seriously? no thanks”. Le Sigh. PS: I made both blogs mobile friendly! So when I get blocked from your work computers, you can still read me on your smart phones… hurray!
Bleeps, since getting the little Tuckerang back in December, there’s been one question I’ve been getting over and over. Most people ask it out loud, because they know I’m just one of those folks who will blab anything if you ask it directly. Other folks are reserved, and politely don’t want to pry… especially considering my history. Speaking of my history, I think it makes folks doubley curious. Come on, you know what the question is, right? Just say it out loud. Get it off your chest. I know you want to ask. Can’t you feel the suspense?! “Sooooooo…. ah…. you gonna, uh, do any more?” I usually respond with “if God is willing and the creek don’t rise”. And then… “Ah…. how long are you going to wait?” I can feel people’s discomfort in prying, but the curiosity gets the better of them. Not that I can blame, I’ve […]
Heya Bleeps So, earlier this week I was having lunch with my fabulous friend Niki (of Nikus Road, check her out… about to do IVF! Stop by and wish her luck!) and we were just chatting about how being a mom after infertility still makes you a little “different”. Like I wasn’t going to be “different”, no matter what I did. But specifically we were commenting on folks who have kids, who always make flippant statements about how “lucky” she is (or I once was) to not have kids… so that she could sleep in, or go out without a babysitter, or see a movie whenever she wants. Or comments I get to me, asking me how much I miss being able to do all that stuff. “Bet you miss sleep!” or “Are you lucky you had those extra years of sleep?” Nah. I’m lucky now. Do I miss sleep? […]
I hope you don’t mind me cross posting here for a while, while I’m getting the Bird Flipper up and running! My post over there today is… well… addressing what you’ve all probably already been thinking about my kid’s name… Go check it out.
I’ve got a new post up on the new blog! Check it out:
Bleeps, I’m dragging once again. Blargh. Maybe it’s a resurgence of the baby blues? I’m not sure how much I talked about all that when they originally hit, but I struggled with some post-partum stuff. I’m sure you recall my post about crying over everything. Funny… when its not you. A couple weeks after Tuck was born, I had a meltdown. I mean a TOTAL. #$%*@%$. MELTDOWN. Over the dogs getting my Mom’s banana chocolate chip muffins down from the counter and eating the whole thing. I was like, inconsolable. Over banana muffins. Seriously, ask Adam. Fortunately, I’m not back to meltdown status. It’s more like the ho-hums. Feeling kind of lonely. Out of place? Or something? Know what I mean? Anywhodoodle. When I get like this, I sometimes get a wild hair for something different. Sometimes small, like changing my hair color or getting a new hair cut… but […]
