Oh hai, vasectomy check-in admissions lady. It's 7am. I got dressed in the dark to be here today. My hair is a rat's nest and I am wearing a leopard print bra under my white tank top and some juicy sweatpants. Not that it's your job or anything, but a little advance warning would have been [...]

So, six weeks ago, this little piece of girly yumminess popped out of me. Ok, not so much popped, as exploded out, leaving in her wake, total and utter vaginal destruction.

Five days ago today, I asked my husband to mail out a package for me. It' s just hard for me to get out these days. Unless it's for burritos riddled with guacamole. Or milkshakes. Or any food, really. But, mundane tasks that don't involve a drive through are just a bit too much for [...]

Officer: Have you been drinking this evening? Me: Um...I'm pregnant. Officer: ... Me: So........no. Officer: Coming from a party? Me: (looks [...]

You know those girls? The ones you see when you are in line for a movie, or out to dinner, or at a birthday party of some college friend you barely talk to anymore. You can always hear them come in, super loud and giggly, and always ultra shiny and glossed up. You know who [...]

So much good news going around.Our new President-Elect, who fills me with hope, pride and excitement. A growing baby inside me that fills me with...well...mostly gas and food, but there is some joy mixed in, too. And our local radio station is already alive with Christmas music, my favorite!And yet...something foul has been quietly festering [...]
