41 weeks now. Just an update to say that nothing interesting is happening. Those 5-7 minute toe-curling contractions continued for 24 straight hours and then stopped. Yep. At about 2:30pm today they stopped as abruptly as they came on at exactly 2:30pm the day before. I had another afternoon nap, … Continue Reading →


First, old stuff I wrote two days ago: Hey look at that I’M STILL PREGNANT. I realize this is premature, as I’m only 40 and 5, but I can still bitch and whine about it. All my pregnant buddies have had their babies already, save for one who is due … Continue Reading →

(I’ll get back on track in a minute, but I wanted to have this side rant about birth in our culture and how fucked up it is. While not really about my SIL, it’s certainly inspired by it). Cesarean is to birth options as thin is to beauty standards. Favored, … Continue Reading →


“Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me again and YOU’RE A CUNT. YOU’RE A FUCKING CUNT AND I FUCKING HATE YOU, YOU FUCKING CUNT.” – Curtis, on Krazy’s phone harassment this evening. As a plus, she identified us as “Marika’s guardians” at least … Continue Reading →
