A not-so-subtle exit from healthcare

Disclaimer: This is a long-ish story, but all of it really happened, and it was my personal wake-up call to get the hell out of the place I was working. Some call it “an epiphany”, some call it “bad luck”, and still others would call it “my big mouth getting me into some deep shit”; you decide. I... Sign in to see full entry.

I have a point – somewhere

We live in a cookie cutter neighborhood where I am usually lost. I even found a parallel street once when I was terribly lost that had the same name as ours but did not have our house on it. I was baffled, to say the least. Our home is all decked out like the newest homes being built: Built-in... Sign in to see full entry.

What the hell are they all talking about?

Okay, so I was waiting for my daughter. I do this every day, and every day there are other mothers waiting for their children who stand around and discuss pet hamsters, echocardiograms, and moving to Texas. Actually, that’s just one particularly talkative mom who I eavesdrop on now and then. But... Sign in to see full entry.

This may offend some ... don't hate me

To the chunky ones in the bunch, I feel your pain. I have been through three pregnancies and the associated tank ass-ness that comes with carrying extra human cargo. But, and this is the point, when the cargo, er, deplaned, I lost the weight. I did so because I like to run and it is a good way to... Sign in to see full entry.

Parenting for Dummies

I’ve only been a parent for six years. So, if you have children older than 6, I can’t help you. I am as yet uninformed about the older ones. But I can hang with the toddlers for at least 10 minutes without pulling my hair out. Some of what I’ve learned so far: Diapers are simple: smelly - change,... Sign in to see full entry.

Bring on the Holiday Cheer

I didn’t get my Christmas tree yet, but if the aisles at Target are any indication, I better get on the ball. We had to venture into Target yesterday evening to get my daughter some tights to go with her princess costume. We decided to look for a warm outfit for the little one while we were there,...

Pacifier smascifier

My oldest daughter was a thumb sucker, and my son had a pacifier until he was four months old. But with our youngest we have gotten a bit lazy and she is entering into her 7th month of life still tethered to a binky and waking up many times nightly to eat. It is not that she is wasting away, either,... Sign in to see full entry.

Oh dear...

Halloween must be called off!!! I have eaten all of the candy. There is nothing left for the little Power Rangers and cows with udders. I’m sorry Teletubbies and Bob the Builder. I feel badly, but I think it is still early enough to alert the trick-or-treaters and they can come up with an alternate... Sign in to see full entry.

I'm going to get pummelled, speak well of me

Taylor is a boy, my only son. I know he is a boy because, aside from the Buzz Lightyear pull-ups, I always hear people comment, “He is such a boy!” at the mall, grocery store, etc. I am amazed when someone comments on my children- veiled insults to straight out compliments still surprise me. I do... Sign in to see full entry.
