Wednesday Throwback: In which I try desperately to edify myself

(This post originally appeared in my old blog a few years ago.  I know it's Wednesday, which is not a good day for a Thursday Throwback, but at the last minute [specifically, 2 a.m., when I was up getting my son some codeine for his throat], I decided that the post I had scheduled for today was too personal, to weird, too easily misconstrued, and above all too full of lady talk.   So,  you're welcome!  And yes, it is Wednesday.)I've read a few religious mommy blogs in my time, so I know the r … [Read more...]

Jane (The View From the Foothills) gave me a lift by asking,Is there any chance you could re-publish your story on defrosting the hamburger in the washing machine.  A very good friend of mine is about to have her 4th child and I would like her to have a  fabulous laugh.  That story, which I passed along a lot when your old blog was up, has kept many friends laughing over their life with a newborn mistakes, "Well, it wasn't quite hamburger in the washing machine but I ......".Well, I am h … [Read more...]
