I've come to that lonely and terrifying place where IUDs aren't necessary. It's cold and densely populated and smells a little like cabbage. I don't much like it here but here is where my banishment is to take place until I am granted re-entry into the land of You're Not Pathetic and Single Anymore. So until Allah Prince Charming bestows that blessing upon me and allows me to re-up on my rightful citizenry, I'm thinking I no longer need the IUD because 1) I'm alone B) I'm all by myself. 3) I'm… Continue

As we look for ways to cut spending, we are scooping up bargain clothes, accessories, toys and furniture once owned by someone else. So what should we do to save?
Set a budget. You've heard this a hundred times before but actually follow threw and do it! This is difficult at first -- you don't know how much things cost. But eventually you'll be able to tell yourself, "I'm going to spend $20 today." It becomes a game of sorts to see… Continue

How does Blogging feel? These are my blogging impressions so far:
Sometimes blogging feels:
☺Like gatecrashing a party. You push your way into a group of people who are chatting amiably and interrupt them. Then you change the subject to something you want to talk about (YOU) and stamp your feet when it looks like no one’s listening.
:( Like throwing a message in a bottle into the deep blue sea. Some day,… Continue

As the school year is underway and our schedules are HEAPING with more than the year before – how do you make time for what is important? Determining what is important will be different for everyone, but I can almost guarantee that when we stop for a minute and truly think about what is important, it won’t be getting to the grocery store (unless your frig is completely bare!) cleaning the bathroom or watching Dr. Phil. I bet spending time with family… Continue

Out of my intrepid fear of cliches, I may have been unclear with Tuesday's post. Even though we survived the Spawnocalypse
--two and a half years of transition from daydreaming newlyweds to sometimes-haggard parents of back-to-back babies--this journey and blog are far from over.
But, at the risk of using dark analogies
to describe parenthood (who, me?),… Continue

No? Dinosaurs are extinct you say? I beg to differ. I believe my two year old is a reincarnated Pterodactyl. What proof do I have? The proof is in the pudding, or rather the Pterodactyl scream we all experience when she is unhappy. (Read more

(Disclaimer: Adult Content or something....I couldn't make this shit up)
There was this guy. His name was Wayne but he looked so much like Kevin Costner that me and my best friend called him Kevin. Not to be confused with the real Kevin I was also seeing who owned a restaurant and did things that I'd tell him to do that I'm sure he'd never want anyone to even speculate about, let alone write about on their blog. But that's a whole 'nother post.
So I went out with Kevin… Continue

There's no doubt about it: when you're young you have to be flexible, willing to adapt in this constantly changing world. Doing things the same old way each day is for old folks . . . you know, like four-year-olds. That's right. By the time a child is turns four, he'll have most likely experienced such monumental lifestyle changes as giving up his beloved pacifier and moving from the cozy comfort of his crib to the vast expanse of a big kid bed. Many kids will have left home already and gone… Continue

I am a little worried that I may have an addiction. That may surprise you if you know that my top strength is being cautious, and I think getting ink permanently placed in one's skin may be less than cautious. But each time I get tattooed, my immediate thought is, "Ooohh, I love the way that color looks on my arm (or back or other arm). What else can I do to color my body?" And usually before I am even out of the tattoo studio, I have nearly decided on what kind of tattoo I'll get next. And… Continue
