Request for a Mammogram – REJECTED!

A few weeks ago I preached about the importance of Breast Cancer Awareness month and asked you all to schedule your mammogram appointments ASAP! Soon after typing that post I marched into Mater Hospital and demanded my very own mammogram, STAT! (Ok, I didn’t really shout STAT(!) at the hospital but I’ve always wanted to…) […] Read more…

Breastfeeding Diet

Forget Atkins. Forget South Beach. Forget Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig and any other diet you’ve ever heard of. BREASTFEEDING is the best weight-loss program this planet has ever known. It’s as if Mother Nature was like, Hey, moms. I know you just had to grow a baby human in your body and deal with […] Read more…

Here’s the thing

The thing about one year olds is that they are very needy. They needy you to read stories to them, they needy you to stop them from climbing into toilets, they needy you to keep your eyes on them ALL THE TIME! What about when they sleep, you ask?

As usual, the appointment began with the command to pee in a cup whereupon I proceeded to give one of my worst performances to date (I was running late and didn’t have enough time to drink the gallon of water it […] Read more…

Meditation – Take 1

So on Friday I decided to try out my meditation CD for the very first time. Thanks to Amazon’s spiteful policy of giving a month long window for possible delivery, I had spent a week stalking the mailman. Needless to say, we were both relieved when it finally arrived on Thursday. The CD came with […] Read more…

Eat, Pray, Love, (Clean)

In my previous post I declared that from today henceforth I would begin to live out my joblessness a.k.a housewife life in a healthier and happier manner. As contradictory as it may seem, the couch potato life that I have been living is not only exhausting but it’s not that enjoyable either. It’s one thing […] Read more…
