Lessons For Baby Girl : ASSuming Is Not Cute

I take great pride in knowing when to admit I’m wrong and, boy, was I wrong about Korina. In my last post, I went on about how Korina had a terrible attitude and how I hoped BabyGirl learns how to lose with grace and dignity. I just watched the Project Runway Season 13 Reunion Special … Continue reading

Lessons For BabyGirl : A Good Loser

Being a new mom means TiVo is my best friend.  I love being able to fast forward through commercials.  I also love that it remembers where I was in my show before I had to do something (change diaper, feed baby, running screaming with baby held in front as her poop-laden diaper drips and she’s … Continue reading

Time Flies When You’re A New Mom

Jeezus, how long has it been since my last post?? I feel like I just crawled out of a black hole and found myself at the latter half of 2014. BabyGirl is now a little over 6 months old. I can’t believe that. I can’t believe I just typed that out. Wasn’t I just puking … Continue reading

Why I Don’t Say “FML”

My pregnancy hasn’t exactly what you would call an “easy pregnancy” by any means. I have Hyperemesis Gravidarum. I was hospitalized. I had to have a PICC line inserted and was on TPN for months. I have now been diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes and am on modified bed rest for yet another complication. Yet, despite … Continue reading

Living With Hyperemesis Gravidarum

Last time, I talked about what my symptoms were.  This time, I’ll tell you about what it’s like to be pregnant and have Hyperemesis. Life Sucks I’m not trying to be dramatic.  When you’re vomiting anywhere from 10-40 times a day, life starts to look pretty shitty.  You can’t eat.  You can’t drink.  You can’t … Continue reading

Hyperemesis Gravidarum Sucks

My posts have been few and far between.  Not just because I’m pregnant but because I hyperemesis gravidarum.  Don’t know what that is?  I didn’t either until it smacked me in the face. Anyone remember when Kate Middleton was hospitalized during her pregnancy?  She had hyperemesis also. So what exactly is it?  It’s not morning … Continue reading

And Baby Makes 3

Long time, no post!  So here’s essentially what happened since the last time I posted. Clyde and I went to Honolulu for 3 glorious weeks in which I showed him where I grew up.  It was awesome.  I didn’t want to come back. I caught bronchitis for another 2 weeks after our vacation. We adopted … Continue reading

Pass It Forward

I was driving home from the doctor’s. I had bought some sashimi for my husband and I to enjoy from an upscale Japanese market. I also bought two sandwiches for myself. One was a tonkatsu sandwich (my fave). The other was a mix combo of tuna sandwiches and ham / cheese sandwich. There was a … Continue reading

Wrong Number

I’ve been living in my current apartment for the better part of two years.  No one has my home phone number.  Hell, I don’t even know what my home phone number is.  The only reason we have one is for : Emergencies.  911 can pinpoint your exact location with landlines, not cell phones. We order a … Continue reading

Twist on Bob Harper’s Green Drink

I think his recipe is for more advanced health nuts. I’m more of a beginner. Therefore, I’ve modified it a bit. I put two cups of kale, 1 cup pineapple, 1/2 orange, 1/2 cup strawberries, 1 tsp maca powder and a tbsp of coconut oil and almond milk. This is what it looks like. It’s … Continue reading
