The Following Days Continued

I leave the room and sit in the lobby for them to finish my paperwork. While I’m waiting, I send Jason a text saying, “I just wanted to let you know that I’m at Planned Parenthood. They confirm that I am pregnant and due in November.”

He sends a text back saying, “I don’t even know what to say to you.”

Stunned by this reply, I’m at a loss for how to respond. How does he not know what to say to me? Last I knew, it takes two for this result to happen.

Recipe for a Moist and Juicy Turkey

For Thanksgiving, we go to my husband’s parents house each year.  I haven’t had to cook a turkey in a long time, which I kinda miss because my turkey always came out very moist and juicy.  In fact, many years ago I would cook the turkey on the BBQ grill (charcoal).  I loved cooking on the BBQ grill because that meant that I had more room in my oven for cooking the side dishes.  However, you can still make my awesome turkey in the oven.  For the recipe for a moist and juicy turkey learn…

Travails of a work-from-home mom

Yes, being a work-from-home mom is not for the faint-hearted. And I’m not even getting started on the bad days when schools are shut, or the children fall ill or the help mysteriously disappear to their gaons (villages) for vague, unexplained reasons. So the next time, someone you know tells you she’s a work-from-home mom, give her an encouraging pat on the back. Even better, take her out for coffee or offer to watch her kids while she takes a luxurious ten minute shower. Trust me,…
