The ultrasound today showed no significant change. I was measuring 8 weeks along, but still nothing.

24 hours from now, I will have my answer. I’m not sure what the true statistics are, but I’m going into it assuming 50/50.

Wake up, wake up, wake up (it’s the first of the month)

Jesus Christ on a pogo-stick. How is it that I only ever manage to post once a month around these parts?



I have many things I would like to get posted before the end of the year. I shall make a list. Lists motivate me. Most of the time.

  • Photos:
    Abby’s 3rd birthday (YEAH THAT HAPPENED, LAY OFF ME.)
    Any and all other awesome photos.
  • Recaps of the last 2 years.
    I know, HOLY SHIT, right? But seriously. I did this two years ago for Abby and I really want them for every year of her on this planet. So…I need to do this.
    I mean, not blogging about my period (don’t get me started) – but just more blogging. Get into the routine. You know, LIKE IT’S MY (3rd…no 4th) job.

Alright, I know this post was more for me than it was for you, but let’s pretend this was something solid. Kay? Thanks.

(While you’re here – you can check out my latest post over at Mamapop!)

An announcement I would have made Monday if it weren’t for GoDaddy.

So, Monday afternoon a super awesome thing happened:

Jack Osbourne Finds Naked Photos of Ozzy, World Mouth-Vomits In Unison

Okay, so the story headline itself isn’t what’s so awesome, it’s the fact that I WROTE IT.

Yes, my loyal readers (all 6 of you) – I’VE WRITTEN FOR MAMAPOP.

(cue crowd-deafening cheering and applause)

I’m on a trial basis for the first couple of months, but every Monday afternoon, check over at to see my newest installment of celebinsanity. I just made that word up. Not sure if it works. Nahhhh, what the hell. We’ll just say it does.

ANYWAY – I wanted to share all this fun news with you on Monday, but GoDaddy decided to eff up EVERYTHING and I couldn’t access my site. Or my email. Or my lifeblood. What makes me crazy is that all the (local) coverage about their outage indicated that the downtime was affecting “mostly small business owners”. Uh, exqueeze me? Baking powder? I will most definitely stand up and say I am not a small business owner. If anything, I maybe break even after paying for my domain and hosting. So, GET THE FACTS STRAIGHT, YO.

So, I have my BlogHer wrap-up post half done and sitting in my drafts folder. I wasn’t going to post anything here until I could get that up.

Then Abby got the Norovirus (that’s a stomach bug to you non-medical show watching folk) on Friday night. And then I got it on Monday night. And then the hubs got it last night.

I was going to come here and bitch and moan about HOW SICK I AM OF BEING SICK. And how much I hate watching my little girl be sick all the time. I’ve been cursing Abby’s daycare since Friday. Thinking about how unfair it’s been that we’ve ALL been sick all summer. And how my parents are visiting us this weekend and all I can do is worry about not getting THEM sick.

Then I read Ryan’s post today on his blog, Pacing the Panic Room, titled To Be So Brave. About a man who recently passed away due to complications of ALS, otherwise known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. A web series chronicling his life starting with his diagnosis was made. Ryan featured the trailer for the series on his site. I watched.

I excepted a man my father’s age. Instead, I saw someone MY AGE who was diagnosed with a terminal illness. His wife…someone my age with a husband slowly becoming a prisoner in his own body.

I watched, and I cried.

My God. Things could be so much worse. And I get all anxious and panicky and pissed off about a stomach bug and a few summer colds? Fuck that.

If you have time today, visit the Often Awesome website – where the web series is hosted and where you can read about the army of people that mobilized for Tim and his wife Kaylan’s sake. It is a beautiful story. I admit I haven’t watched the full series yet, mostly because I’m pretty sure it’s frowned upon at my workplace to ugly cry at your desk for 2 hours. I’ll do that in the privacy of my own home tonight.

Hug your loved ones, and remember to count your blessings every day. And pray to whichever God you so desire to find a cure for horrible diseases like ALS.
