Make Room for Baby

Sunday, October 30th, 2005

When I thought about having a baby, the things that I “worried” about were not things that actually matter in the long term. Sure, you have to change diapers and yeah sometimes the baby wakes up at night, but really, that’s not the big deal.
No, what is the big deal is how your entire life […]

Rat people on the Titanic?

Thursday, October 27th, 2005

I heard an advertisement for the new “Titanic” DVD. From what I understand, it is a special edition, which means that besides the 2,000 hours of movie you have to watch, you also have 4,567 hours of “extra footage.” Part of the “extra footage” includes an alternate ending.
What could they do? Does the boat not […]

Friends and Lovers

Wednesday, October 26th, 2005

From what I understand, there are people out there that get easily embarrassed. You know, they have a stain on their shirt and it’s like “Oh no! What will people think?” I could care less about having a stain like that. Falling in public? Done it. Saying totally inappropriate things in front of the “wrong” […]

My Normandy

If I knew more about the actual fighting part of World War Two, I could make better analogies. Instead, I will just tell you that I am fighting a battle on two fronts. For the sake of humor, I get to be Germany.
Miss E will play the part of both the Allies and the […]

Thread Hanging

Monday, October 24th, 2005

I am tired. I find myself saying “I can’t do this anymore. I just can’t do this.” The only problem is, when you are a parent, the words fall on deaf ears. Nobody can help you and you can’t really do anything that shows the desperation (not depression) you feel.
Maybe I should run away. […]

For the longest time in my life, I was blessed to have my very own bathroom. You know, my own room where I could “do my buisness” and leave clothes all over the floor without worrying about someone splashing water on them.
Then I went to college and learned the horrors of the community bathrooms. […]

For a friend

Saturday, October 22nd, 2005

Not long after waking up this morning, my bad mood returned. I’ve been dealing with some personal issues for awhile, personal issues that, in my mind are petty, stupid and just downright annoying.
I’ve been trying to think of reasons as to why these things don’t matter and how even though I am annoyed, it really […]

Medical Miracle

Thursday, October 20th, 2005

I have The Sniffles, my child has The Squirts and my husband has a case of the “Why won’t my child ever sleep anymores?”
Look! I’m a medical professional. That’ll be a $10 copay.
Actually, I’m not, but I am the daughter of one. When you are the daughter of someone who has spent her life diagnosing […]

With the exception of MTV’s “Real World,” I think the “Reality Craze” started coming along when I was in college. I didn’t watch any of the shows at the time because “Why would I watch reality TV? Boring.” It didn’t matter, however, because I would hear my professors talking about “Who Wants to Marry a […]

Mozart in the Making

Tuesday, October 18th, 2005

My child has a pretty decent taste in music, if I do say so myself. Sure, she likes to dance to the beat of any commercial we hear, but she knows a good tune when she hears one. Por ejemplo: I’ve turned around in the car multiple times to see her bobbing her head up […]
