I'm at a point now where it seems I've just always been in pain of some sort. I really just can't imagine what it's like to not be in some sort of discomfort. Migraines, stiff and achey joints, fatigue, etc. I've gotten used to it. I've gone to doctors, but always sort of been dismissed.… Continue reading Put a name on it
Oh, mommy groups. You never cease to piss me the hell off at least twice a day. This is probably why I need to monitor my blood pressure. But whatever. A topic came up today that's actually something my friends and I have discussed a lot - what to pay a babysitter. It's been a… Continue reading Cheap or Poor? Ignorant Snobs Weigh In.
About six years ago my mother started hanging around and dating some guy she worked with. I still haven't met him, but I can't say I've heard much to make me a fan of the relationship starting with the fact that he lives with another woman - his long-term girlfriend (pre-dating my mom) and they're… Continue reading A real keeper
One thing you can count on about being part of a military family is that at some point you're going to be told to pack your crap and move if you want to keep your family together. So you do that. If you own your home, you sell it or rent it. If you're renting,… Continue reading Flying is never fun

I mean, I don't think any of us needed to know that, did we? I was living in blissful ignorance. Seeing them just once in a while. Cracking… Continue reading Google it, dummy.
Shortly before the turn of the millennium my grandmother had a stroke and couldn't live alone anymore. She lived in Virginia, as did three of her children. One other child lived in North Carolina. We lived in South Carolina. No one wanted to take care of her, really. Not more than stop in, sit on… Continue reading Magnet School
I graduated last month. Walked across the stage and all that. For the last year I've worked along side with a professor of mine, helping her with her research, adding to her database and then going back to analyze and code it. I've been in several of her courses and over the last couple of… Continue reading She Likes Me
I'm coming up on one year of living in Maryland, and that time has allowed me to think about the last three years I spent living in Hawaii. When I first found out we were moving to Hawaii I was so excited and ready to head to paradise to soak up that surf and sun.… Continue reading Thanks for the memories, Hawaii
Before I signed up for my WordPress account I did what I imagine a lot of people do and I googled terms like “best blogging site” and “how to start a blog”, which turned up more articles than I’d ever actually care to read but all of which seemed to be more or less the… Continue reading Blogging tips are useless
