No, Really...Thanks Body. I Used To Like You.

I think that most people wake up and don't really think about their body or what it is doing in the moment before movement starts. I always find it curious that we don't notice our bodies in health, or at least most of us don't, but we do notice when there is something wrong. I have a cold right now and last week it didn't dawn on me to think about my nose or my chest or the top of my head where this cold is settled. Today, all I can think about is how annoying it is to be sick when I have so much to do at work and at home. ...more

Maybe Not All "H" Words Are Bad...Even If They Are Scary...

When Dr. C mentioned the "H" word 10 days ago, I thought she had forgotten that she was on the phone with me. No, doc, I am not calling to talk about having a hysterectomy. I am 37. Remember? I just want to know how my ultrasound looked and then I want to get back to not thinking about you for the next year or so. Now that we have cleared that up let's move on to the real important thing - my results. What? Wait...you really did mean to say the "H" word to me? When you say that I have an 'issue' that is best corrected by major surgery, are you sure? ...more

Hard Labor

Over the past few months, I’ve come to connect with some really amazing women through blogging. I think it takes awhile to find your place in the blog-world, just like it does with any other thing in life.  And I’ll be honest and say that I really didn’t think this would be a means to developing friendships.   ...more

Cobwebs and Scartissue (Graphic Photo, warning) - How I Became Barren and Battered

“Hold fast to dreams, For if dreams die, Life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly, Hold fast to dreams, For if dreams go, Life is a barren field, Frozen with snow” Langston Hughes This photo was taken today. I have been thinking about the visual aspects of my barren, cobwebbed and scartissued body and I am sure some of you are thinking, "how did she get here?" ...more

Someone Asked Me: How Do You Choose a Preschool (especially with twins)

Wow. Yeah. Before the boys were born I was really interested in a Montessori education. However, now that the boys are HERE, their personalities, and the way they learn, are totally opposite. N is very very focused. He learns by doing. A is highly dis tractable. But he learns so fast, in a snap. He can put two words together and has been doing so since about August. But the highly dis tractable part has me worried that Montessori is not for him. ...more

The OTHERS

Now that I belong to "the club"... the awful club that should close its doors yet daily accepts new members... I often view happy pregnant women as "The Others".LOST fans will know that The Others cannot be trusted. ;-)They will rip out your heart, stab you where it hurts, crush your spirit, insult you, and rattle your last exposed and super sensitive nerve. They will do these things on a daily basis and they won't even notice they're doing it!!!!Their favorite weapon of choice?...more
