I Leave You with This

Filed Under: Life

I'm on my way out the door to head to Little Rock but I wanted to leave you with a look at my hair this morning. The pregnancy hormones have calmed down a bit and after I got to mess with the hair a little bit, I don't absolutely hate it like I did.  It's still ...

This was me at around 15:30 today.  I was not happy.  Can you tell? I used to look like this: I liked this hair cut.  It made me feel pretty and thin and like I looked LIKE A FUCKING GIRL. I'll try and keep the story short. I got my hair cut like a month and a half ago ...

Can’t Beat Cheap with a Stick

Our "baby plan" is that Oliver is going to stay in our room till he outgrows the bassinet part of our pack-n-play and then he'll move into Cara's room.  [Can't wait for that mayhem.] Since Oliver won't be using the crib for a while, we weren't in any hurry to get any sort of crib bedding ...

The Bed

Filed Under: Life

Cara got a toddler bed yesterday. As you can see from the picture, her crib is still up.  I figured I was doing good by just getting the toddler bed put together.  Actually, I was a fucking rockstar! That bed has eight slats.  Each one of those slats has a peg on each end of the slat.  ...

An Evolving Battle

We have had issues with eating out with Cara since she was a tiny infant.  Actually, that's not totally right.  Other people have had issues with us eating out with Cara since she was a tiny infant. When Cara was an itty bitty baby, I would breastfeed her when we went to dinner.  Since I hadn't ...

F U Friday

Filed Under: Life

Friday, glorious Friday! Actually, I don't have that unnatural love/devotion for Friday any longer since I stay at home with Cara.  Don't get me wrong, Fridays are fine but it's not like I get to leave "the office" for the weekend and come back on Monday.  I'm rambling now aren't I? Sorry. It's Fuck You Friday!  Yippee! Now for ...

Short End of the Stick

I am awake.  I have been awake since 5 am. Cara is awake.  Cara has been awake since 5 am. Do you see a correlation here? Not only did she wake up but I could here her bouncing in her crib and couldn't help but hear the earsplitting screams.  [Cara, is the screaming REALLY necessary?!] The most maddening part ...

Call-In Interview Thingamajigs

Filed Under: Life

Blah. Yesterday was one of those days where I felt like an absolute asshole. I woke up at 3:45 because of an extremely screwed up nightmare involving my ex-stepfather's house [again] and a very creepy ghost cloud thing.  It took me until 5 am to calm down enough to go back to sleep. I managed to forget my ...
