my life would probably be a better sitcom than “according to jim”

i feel a little better about the whole “prenatal depression” thing. i sat jared down & explained that i’m not feeling great emotionally & part of it is guilt about not keeping up with what i usually contribute in terms of housework & dinner. if it was just me living alone, i’d let the placeContinue reading “my life would probably be a better sitcom than “according to jim””

the best/worst babysitters club mystery EVER?

stacey & the mystery at the mall is TERRIBLE. but it’s so terrible that it became amazing. that seems to be the case with a lot of the mystery books. picture it, lawrence, kansas, 2011: i have a cold, i feel like crap, i’m laying in bed & reading this book to pass the timeContinue reading “the best/worst babysitters club mystery EVER?”

all i need is a lanai & a caftan

i decided to take a chance on looking for a new doctor here in lawrence. i got myself a doctor shortly after i moved here so that i could get a prescription for birth control pills & a referral to a rheumatologist (because i was beginning to suspect that my osteoarthritis may have been misdiagnosed).Continue reading “all i need is a lanai & a caftan”

death of a granny cart

remember that post i made the other day, about running errands & cleaning the house & sometimes a little homemaking maintenance activity can help relieve my stress & anxiety? i wrote a lot about the wire granny cart that i brought with me from boston. i used it to take recycling to the recycling depot,Continue reading “death of a granny cart”

sophia on gay marriage

so, i think an excessive amount of time, money, & energy has been devoted to the cause of gay marriage at the expense of true equality for all people (not just those who are in traditional long-term monogamous relationships & want to get the government & religion to sanction them). with that said: i wasContinue reading “sophia on gay marriage”
