Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Gets the Oprah Treatment

Have you heard about the latest thing to help you manage menopause, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy!?! Can you hear the tiny bit of fake enthusiasm in my tone there? I hope so because people have been talking about BHRT for a good long time. Oprah didn't discover this treatment, but it sure seems like it the way everyone has started talking about it. var iamInit = function() {try{initIamServingHandler(420,630,549204,"http://cdn.pis.picapp.com/IamProd/Resources/Css/css2.css")}catch(ex){}}() ...more

I Can't See My YouTube Videos

Whenever I post a youtube video on my post it doesn't show up. A friend of mine says she can't see hers either. I copy the URL and hit insert and there's a box but then nothing shows up when I view it. Can someone help me with this? Thanks so much. Also when I want to insert a photo it asks for a URL but what if I want to submit one of my photos from I Photo? I am a little confused, I would post a lot more more if I could just figure this out.

Tree Stump In My Living Room

Today I was in a lot of emotional pain because I tried to strap Ariel in her car seat and the straps were to short. i have so much trouble with these car seats. I have trouble installing them in the car, it's always lopsided or loose and I have to ask someone for help. Then I have one car seat with a complicated buckle that's like a puzzle piece. It took me a month to figure that shit out. ...more

Stopped By The Police

Okay so today I went to the end of the semester performance for the kids I teach in East Oakland Ca. As Soon as I got to East Oakland I was stopped by the police for not coming to a complete stop before I turned right. I saw the police officer but I just didn't give a shit, somehow I thought that because I'm tired and burnt out that I am somehow exempt from obeying the rules. I almost didn't stop when I heard the siren because I thought he couldn't possibly be stopping me. "Don't you know I'm a single parent and I'm working with difficult kids and I have to keep up with my blog. ...more

Cookie Monster III

Cookie Crumbs The cookies are done  and more importantly,  I am done with the cookies. The final count was 981 cookies in bacon/cheese, peanut butter, milk and bacon.  I was going to stick with just bacon/cheese but then I got very tired of bacon/cheese and needed to change it up. Also? my house was being to reek of bacon and cheese, which you would think wouldn't be a bad thing, I mean who doesn't like the smell of bacon? Live with it non-stop for a few days and then get back to me. ...more
