I found myself having a hard time breathing before I left for Texas last Friday. Oh, I wasn't have any respiratory problems, no. I just couldn't breathe. You know, that easy breath you draw deep into yourself, hold for just an instan... Read more

Overheard (or perhaps overread would be more apt?..) during a text conversation between myself and my sister, who just has Ms. Poppy two weeks ago today! We were discussing our digestive tracts and various issues we face (who knew flatulen... Read more

Before Teresa went on a brief break last month, she posted a picture and asked her friends to do the same, with another picture to follow a month later. I put up my 'before' picture, and now, here's my 'after' picture. The biggest difference is ... Read more

I'm very happy about the arrival of Ms. Poppy (I think I'll call her Ms. all her life, I don't know. I called her Bump before she was, born, but that's another story..) so I wanted to document that separately. Overall, this has been an emotional... Read more
