I’ve been a blogging slacker the past couple days. Reason being I’ve been hard at work on my new business venture which I hope to announce VERY soon! :) So I have nothing to write about at the moment other than to say I’m around, just not blogging much (though I did manage to get through my blogroll yesterday). Hopefully I can launch this thing soon and then have a little bit more free time. Talk at y’all soon. ;)

Ah, what the hell. I decided to join in with Katy and the gang over at The Grass Isn’t Greener for SPF – aka Self Portrait Friday. :) This week’s theme is “what do you do to relax” so here are some of the things I like to do to relax. Mess around on the computer in my pjs: Take a long hot shower (doesn’t happen often with a toddler in the house): Watch tv (uh, except it’s usually on when I’m watching it): Read (again, doesn’t happen very often): I’m not much of a drinker, but I don’t mind kicking back with some iceRead More →

It’s been a while since I’ve written about any breastfeeding injustices in the world (not for lack of material, just lack of time). But a few things have surfaced recently in my very own state that have me shaking my head and wondering “what the hell.” In the Rocky Mountain News: Five-month-old Nicholas Monroe got hungry Friday while touring the state Capitol with his parents.His mom, 27-year-old Stephanie Monroe, of Rifle, decided that two comfortable-looking couches in the reception area of the governor’s office would be a good place to breast-feed him. An office receptionist, she says, told her to go somewhere else, suggesting theRead More →

We’re cutting it just a little too close for comfort with our bills this month. So close that I’m trying to time the mailing of certain bills just perfectly so they are received after Jody gets paid again on the 15th, but before they are technically considered late. Actually some are getting sent late – the ones that don’t have any penalties for being received a couple days past due. Like our mortgage was due on the 1st, but we have a grace period until the 16th. I mailed it today and hope that it gets there on Monday or Tuesday so the money isRead More →

My OB/GYN’s office just gave me one more reason why I am so glad to be leaving their practice. Here’s a little history on why I decided to find a new doctor. 1. Dr. Lame (as I like to call her) never volunteered any information to me while I was in the hospital for 5 days recovering from HELLP syndrome. If I didn’t know the questions to ask, I got nothing. 2. Despite my clear birthing plan that I would be “breathing my baby down,” (as is taught in HypnoBirthing) NOT pushing on command while holding my breath, Dr. Lane instructed me, “Hold your breathRead More →

I was working on the computer upstairs in our office tonight while Jody played with Ava in the living room. After about 30 minutes, I heard her chattering as she came up the stairs. She walked up to me looking cute as a bug in her lil yellow jammies. I picked her up into my lap where she immediately began showering me with kisses. 21 kisses to be exact. Yes, I counted them aloud as she kissed me. ;) In the middle of this, Jody came upstairs to get her. She started signing “milk please” to me (well, really just “please” – she’s dropped theRead More →
