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.

Virtual Baby Shower for Really Real, Really Big Baby

37.5 years weeks pregnant today. People keep asking me how I’m feeling, and because it’s impolite to answer, “like a bowling ball is about to fall out of of my ladyparts”, I keep asking them if they’ve read Midnight’s Children. Mostly they haven’t — which is awkward, because then I have to explain why I [Read More…]

Minion Monday

So, my kids are pretty freakin’ fantastic. I know this, but sometimes they are all so awesome at the same time that I get overwhelmed by it, and have to write it down. These are just a few moments of their adorableness in the last 12 hours. Last night, 8 pm The minions (jumping out [Read More…]
