Black Lives Matter

The past few weeks have been difficult. I don’t know that I really have my thoughts together yet, but here’s the best I can give. Growing up, I was a sheltered, only girl, PK with a very protective family. Needless to say, those rose-colored glasses were BIG. When I moved away at 19 l, I […]

Alvin is Almost Here!

I had my last OBGYN appointment today. To no surprise, I still have not started to dilate. I am 38 weeks and 5 days, and the c-section is scheduled Thursday evening. I’m low-key pissed that the c-section is so late, because that is an incredibly long time to go without eating. The nurse said I […]

My Baby and My Life and Whatnot

So we used to have this awesome habit of cleaning the kitchen directly after dinner. Over the past few months (since Al has been working/commuting for 13 hours a day and I’ve been colossal and tired), we’ve fallen off. I just put the dishes away when I wake up in the morning. Well, last night […]
