I had all sorts of good intentions to get caught up on my grading for school yesterday. I had a stack of essays that I really needed to get graded ASAP. I mean, just in case I went into labor and on top of screaming through painful contractions, I’d also be stressed out about the

Mark It With A Pee

Thursday, 23 January 2014 by

Every time I go for a check up with my OBGYN, they make me pee in a cup. It’s the first thing I do when I get there. Well, after I sign in. It’s not like I walk in the door and pee in a cup right there in the waiting room. But it’s the

Snow Days

Tuesday, 21 January 2014 by

I grew up in Syracuse, NY, which is the snowiest city in the United States. Yes I know. You’re probably thinking, “Surely somewhere in Minnesota, Wisconsin, or even Michigan is snowier.” But you’d be wrong. There’s a whole lot of physical science that goes into it and if I had paid better attention to Mr.

Men With Cats

Monday, 20 January 2014 by

I am a dog lover. That I cannot deny. I have two beagle mix pups that are the light of my life. And I am a firm believer that you can pick a man solely based on whether or not he has a dog. I think if a man is owned by a canine, it

Pregnancy Woes

Tuesday, 14 January 2014 by

OK I am ready for this baby to be out! I am now 8 and half months pregnant and long past the point where it’s cute. According to my “What To Expect When You’re Expecting” app (oh yeah….they have an app for that), this baby is now the size of a 6 and a half

What Makes A Fan?

Monday, 13 January 2014 by

So this weekend marked a proud day in recent 49er history. And by recent I mean, this season. San Fran advanced to the divisional championship round of the NFL playoffs! And I, like many others around the country, watched the game with baited breathe, just hoping our boys would pull off the win over the

Days of Our Lives

I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking I have slacked on my resolution to write every day. It’s been 3 days since I have written a journal entry. While that is true, I promise you I have not been lax in my writing altogether. I have spent the past 2 days writing nearly 30 “thank

Saving Mr. Banks

Sunday, 05 January 2014 by

Went with the hubby last night to see Saving Mr. Banks. Wow! What a great film! First of all, I love period pieces…..and no, for you non-film enthusiasts, that does not refer to chick flicks! I love films that take place in different decades, particularly in the 20th century. I love the nostalgia of them

I have a love/hate relationships with socks. I don’t know if anyone else shares in my pain but my feet are size 11 which, if you’re not familiar with ladies’ footwear, is friggin’ huge! I swear I feel like Sasquatch sometimes when I am shoe shopping. But at least most shoe makers have gotten on
