‘Twas the Night before Induction

‘Twas the night before induction, and all through the house, little creatures would stomp, with a grumble and grouse,   toward the pajamas all laid on the sofa with care in hopes that bedtime would soon be there. The children danced wildly by the bathroom sink, while Mom considered putting NyQuil in their drinks. Dada [Read More…]

It’s a Baby!

Aren’t you relieved? I know I am. I always get a little antsy during those last weeks of pregnancy, when I feel increasingly like a character in a Ridley Scott movie and the baby seems to be kicking me with twelve arms and legs, that the delivery room is going to be like this scene [Read More…]

A Scheduled Birthday

With my past three kids, I’ve always avoided inductions. They’ve obligingly arrived early, the latest being Charlotte, who was born on her due date. But wee little Lincoln is going to have a scheduled birthday: Saturday, September 22, 2012. Unless I go into labor today or tomorrow, that is. That’s me, 38 1/2 weeks pregnant. [Read More…]

It’s Not Just About Sex

Well, well, well, yesterday was a fun experiment. I enjoyed writing that post, and I considered getting into the combox and trying to parse out what I feel was a lack of clarity on my part with the commenters (who basically all disagreed with me), but then I read an article this morning about something [Read More…]

Salman Rushdie and “The Innocence of Muslims”: Art vs. Propaganda

I clicked over to Hot Air this morning in spite of my current level of frustration with all things political, mostly because I couldn’t think of anything to blog about that wasn’t somehow related to pregnancy. Lucky for me, Hot Air obliged me by providing one of my favorite political bloggers, Allahpundit, waxing eloquent on [Read More…]

7 Quick Takes Saturday!

#7 I would have written these yesterday, but the Ogre thoughtfully brought home the newest and hottest cold that the college kids are passing around here in Ave. Luckily for us, it’s going down in history as being my favorite cold of all time, because our whole family went from being fine to feverish and [Read More…]

Still Pregnant, Still Rambling

I made the Ogre take a picture of me yesterday, ostensibly to chronicle my 37 week enormity, but really because I actually took a shower and blow-dried my hair, and I wanted to mark the occasion with photographic evidence. Please note that immediately proceeding this picture the Ogre measured me, and found that I am [Read More…]

Unfiltered Ramblings

You know you’re really tired when the idea of two days in the hospital sounds like a vacation. I told the Ogre this morning that “it’ll be just like I’m at a spa, only with someone mashing on my stomach every half-hour!” He laughed, and then when I sat down and started typing he said, [Read More…]

The Inappropriate Comments of the Day!

Whee! Patheos finally assimilated my blog into the Borg! They’ve been re-designing the format of all the blogs to optimize page views, which I personally think is very nice of them, so that’s why my blog looks different. I really love it. I think it’s neat, clean and professional-looking, which totally goes hand-in-hand with the [Read More…]

Last-Trimester Pregnacy Woes, or, Poor Me, or, Won’t Someone Come Clean My House for Me?

I couldn’t decide which title most appropriately conveyed just how pathetic I really am. So I picked all three. A few posts ago, Smoochagator, one of my favorite commenters with whom I’ve developed that weird “I feel like we’re friends even though I’ve never met you” rapport so unique to the blogosophere, asked when I [Read More…]
