Genetically Gifted

I once dated a guy who informed me on our third date that while he found me very attractive, thought that I was intelligent, funny, and met many of his criteria, he could never see the relationship progressing to a serious level because he could never marry someone like me. “Um…why not?” “Because you’re so […]

Is Anyone Else Sick of the Snow?

A blizzard is sweeping across the area…again. Here’s a view of my street at 7am this morning. We are expecting several more inches. Walking Comang was quite an adventure. I can’t say that he enjoyed the experience, as whenever he took a pause he would inevitably sink into the foot-deep snow and require assistance.   […]

Why We Chose the Miele Over Dyson

Our beloved Roomba has died. Correction: it is “disabled.” It has lost a lot of its suction power, its parts constantly need replacing, and it’s nearly not as “smart” as it used to be.

How We Spent Valentine’s Day at the ER

…or at least the first hour of February 14. On the night of Friday, February 12, I started having abdominal pains. Not cramps, mind you, but sharp, shooting pains that kept me up through the night.

New Due Date

We had our first appointment with my OB this morning, and everything looks perfect. That’s our baby — the squiggly thing that looks like a seahorse. The circle to the left of it is the yolk sac, which provides nutrients for the baby until the placenta is fully formed. We were even able to see […]
