Double The Pleasure

Tuesday, January 31st, 2006

Today is The Hubs’ 27th birthday and I’m celebrating by sitting on the couch, drinking a “home made margarita” with my boobs.
My boobs, by the way, say hello.
We’ve never been really crazy people when it comes to going out. We didn’t do the club/bar scene in college. We’ve never had much of a nightlife unless […]

The Fun Keeps Coming

Tuesday, January 31st, 2006

For the most part, I do not enjoy the talk of the “breastfeeding.” In fact, I do not like the talk of the breast as long as the word “breast” is used.
I prefer the talk of the “boob” or the “tit,” such as tonight, when I mumbled in front of my grandmother that “My tits […]

How Version 2.0 Was Created

Sunday, January 29th, 2006

I am back, in case you didn’t notice I was gone. And now? I have even BIGGER boobs, which suck, and um, another kid.
I woke up at 6:30 on Tuesday morning with “stomach pains.” Okay, it was cramping. I didn’t think that I’d die or anything but they bothered me […]

Version 2.0

Thursday, January 26th, 2006

As many of you already know, Sam was born on Tuesday, Jan. 24 at 9:50 p.m. Weighed 8 pounds, 6 ounces and was 20 inches long. Came EARLY at 38 weeks and boy I’m happy not to be pregnant anymore.
I just got home so I haven’t read any emails yet, but thanks for all the […]

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from watching TV and reading magazines, it is that rich people are so insightful.
Take The Oprah Magazine, for example. (Not that I read it, and if I do, well you can’t prove it.) There’s always a section where Oprah shares her fabulous wisdom with us little people. Each month, […]

You have ruined me and for that, I am thankful.

Sunday, January 22nd, 2006

It is seven p.m., and The Hubs and I sit inside an empty pizza parlor. I’m wearing a “fancy” black top with a flowered skirt and he wears his new cords.
“Are you using those witch hazel pads when you go to the bathroom,” he asks as the rain pours down outside. It is a rare […]

The Sweetest Thing

Saturday, January 21st, 2006

Tonight, while I waited for my Unisom to kick in, Ellie woke up from her sleep, screaming. After laying her in our bed, I quited her down by singing Elton John songs.
Soon, she fell asleep and I found myself laying there, my toddler’s head touching mine. Then, slowly, her little hand reached up and placed […]

The Post You All Knew Was Coming But Hoped It Wouldn’t…

Thursday, January 19th, 2006

I have a feeling that my husband has a few favorite parts of his day. The first part would be my phone call to him at work, usually somewhere between 11 and 2, where I update him on events as they happen.
Him: “How are you? What are you doing?”
Me: “Fine. Bored. Ellie is trying […]

You Don’t Want No Drama

Wednesday, January 18th, 2006

We haven’t been exactly strict when it comes to filming Miss E’s childhood. You see, we bought a video camera before she was born so we could film all the happy moments of her childhood to show 20/20 when they came knocking on our door after our child’s tellall book about her horrible family.
Then, the […]

They’re Just Not That Into You

Tuesday, January 17th, 2006

I met up with the fabulous Paige this past weekend for Pie. Somehow during the phone conversations leading up to the meeting, Miss Domestic herself mentioned how she planned on heading to the circle jerk known as BlogHer. She thought that maybe I wanted to go.
I’ll tell you what, it does sound kind of fun […]
