An email I received about Cameron

A friend sent me this email today, to thank me for throwing the brunch, and here is what she added about Cameron:

I was not having a good day when I got to your house, and was really looking forward to just getting myself a Bloody Mary and hanging out with the girls. Instead, […]


    11 Weeks-- a Thanksgiving Recap

    Here is a random list of things that went on over the weekend:

    1. I got a migraine on Thanksgiving morning.

    2. Traditionally, Thanksgiving is taken by my siblings as an opportunity to mercilessly bring up embarrassing memories from my past. This year, my brief fling with the guy who later came out of […]


      10 weeks: changes...

      1. I. Feel. Like. Crap. 2. I was Godmother at my niece’s Baptism yesterday. I am in a terrible wardrobe stage, where none of my old clothes fit but I’m not big enough for maternity. 3. Why do I have to pose for photo opportunities in this situation? 4. Gabby got her first haircut […]


        9 Weeks

        Well, assuming that all is well, I am now 9 weeks pregnant. I feel pretty good today– usually a sign that the next day will totally suck, but we’ll see. I am doing the rubber-band trick with all my jeans now, and having trouble finding shirts that cover my half-zipped belly (why are all […]


          No more drama, I promise.

          I guess I can blame it on my hormones, but I’m all over the place these days. You are all such sweethearts to stick with me– reading over my past few entries, I’m even annoying myself with all the ups-and-downs. So here’s the situation: I am 8 weeks pregnant. I have a history of […]


            Halloween Trivia from Our House

            1. I took  the kids to Cammy’s Halloween party at school. I was determined to not be That Mom, and I remembered to bring treats for all the kids.

            2. I forgot to bring extra treat bags for all the siblings that would be there.

            3. Gabby stepped on my hand during Story Time, […]


              Good Lord.....

              I stepped on the scale this morning, because I haven’t been on the scale in a few weeks and I was curious to see what it would have to say.

              According to my scale, I have already put on 3 pounds!!!!!!! WTF?!?!? I’m not even eating any more than I was– in fact, I’m […]


                2 things:

                First, I have not yet miscarried. Whether the pregnancy is still viable I do not know, but my symptoms continue to increase. Dave thought my violent gag reflex this morning was just hilarious.

                Secondly, I told Cameron yesterday that he had a cold. Evidently, this is like telling him that he is a big […]


                  Halloween costumes

                  Here’s where we stand:

                  Gabby loves Care Bears. So I meticulously tracked down, bid on, and won a Cheer Bear costume for her. It arrived Saturday, she took one look it, yelled, “No way!!” and ran off. I have yet to convince her to so much as touch it.

                  Cameron loves dinosaurs. However, it […]


                    How to Have a Bonfire

                    1. Marry man who insists on keeping financial records from the Time Before the Moon.

                    2. Convince him to destroy all records from the 2 oldest years (this will take approx 7 years of marriage).

                    3. Somehow get it into your head that it will be fun to have a fire in your firepit, […]
