How Pokemon Go Saved My Summer

I’m not very good at sticking to a schedule. I know this is the least shocking news ever to anyone who read my blog regularly before my posting became so irregular, but anyway, it’s true. It’s especially true this summer. Usually in the summer we go to Texas, which is great for me because I’m [Read More…]

Moving Blues

Oh man, I realize now that the picture in my last post is less humorous and more alarming, given that it was followed by an extended absence with no explanation. I promise I did not drink myself under the table. We just moved. Actually, we moved twice. We moved to a temporary place and then [Read More…]

Shitstorm

Last week ended in a literal shitstorm. First, there was all kinds of crazy stuff going on with the selling of the house (the bold is the best I can do to communicate the doomsday music that plays in my head every time I think about it). Then there was a very long conversation with [Read More…]

Conversations with the Ogre

The Ogre: “What’s wrong?” Me: *sob* “Nothing. I don’t want to talk about it, because I really need to be a grown-up and just learn to deal with my own spectacular failures at life, and everything.” The Ogre: “…” Me: “Plus, you won’t be able to fix it because it’s my own stupid fault.” The [Read More…]

A Miraculous Machine

YOU GUYS. A man just came to my house and brought me a machine that washes my dishes for me. Sounds crazy, right? But here’s proof: Truly, there is nothing like spending nearly a month without a dishwasher to make you realize that we live in the future, and it absolutely is all it’s cracked [Read More…]

Surprised by Joy

I don’t even know if this thing works anymore, but I’ll give it a try. Hello, BlogLand! I’m alive and all. Sorry for disappearing. I have a litany of (actually valid) excuses, but none of them really matter as much as this: The sweetest and most adorable baby ever born. Really, I probably could have [Read More…]

Stormageddon Ascendeth

Introducing Isaac Christopher Charles Alexander, born on Thursday, January 21 at 1:03 pm. He is huge — 8 lbs, 14 oz. Whoever guessed that he’d be 9 lbs was pretty much dead on, which is a pound and a half bigger than any of my other babies. He’s also the calmest, squishiest, and most precious [Read More…]

In Memory of My Godfather

Yes, I am still pregnant. We had a false alarm last Thursday night, and later that same night my godfather died, so I haven’t been feeling very bloggy. I’m not going to lie, it really sucks to be due any minute at the same time that someone extremely dear to me has died. Practically, it’s [Read More…]

Having Faith in the Midst of Fear

Well, we had an exciting weekend. On Thursday evening I had a talk with our pediatrician, who was VERY CONCERNED that we were choosing to have the baby at a birth center. Normally I would just brush aside concerns about uterine rupture and oxygen deprivation, not because I’m an idiot or anything, but because I’ve [Read More…]
