Before I was pregnant, I drank two cups of coffee in the am and two or three diet cokes before leaving work for the day. Once pregnant, I saved my soda for one diet caffeine free coke per day, and attempted to drink 64 ounces of water if I could conceivably think of a way to fit in the necessary bathroom breaks between every meeting.
How to Drink and Eat at Work while Concealing a Pregnancy
Sequestrapalooza and You
Politics, like most everything else in life, is made to seem way more complicated than it actually is. Mostly because if we just realized our nation's capital is full of mean eight grade girls and brilliant nerds who still carry grudges against the "Big Man On Campus" we'd get a lot less worked up about the posturing and gaming that happens all day, every day in Washington, D.C.
Take sequestration for example. What is happening right now is the eqivalent of the President and Congress being stuck in a loveless marriage.
Is it or Isn't it...that is the question.
So, my son is a little hyper. Errr, actually, that is a little white lie - he is extremely hyper, easily distracted, gets bored quickly, talks non-stop, is extremely impatient and he DOES NOT LISTEN! I always thought he had one of those ADD/ADHD conditions- But I was always told that boys and girls are different and that all those symptoms I listed above were common in boys. BS. My son, drives me crazy, and apparently he drives the teachers and administrators at his school crazy as well. And his soccer coaches...you get the picture.
Why My Son's ADHD May Land Me In Jail

This couldn’t have lasted for more than 45 seconds but to a first time mom whose only child didn’t stop moving for even a nano-second I thought this is AWESOME! Then a split second later I thought uh-oh.
Men Who Do Housework Get Less Sex, Study (Clearly Conducted By Men) Says

Just in Case
I forget who I am...
Sneaking Around To Get Pregnant
How does getting pregnant start for many of us? We walk into a store and buy an ovulation test. I started with Clearblue because I liked seeing the smiley face versus a boring pink line. However, taking this test entailed sneaking around work and hiding the fact that hopefully a baby was in my future.
Fighting With Your Partner - Normal and Healthy
About a century ago, when I was first married, I was chatting with another newlywed woman in our neighborhood and the subject of fighting came up. She proceeds to tell me that she had thought she and her husband would never fight. As I start to giggle because I think she is making a joke (I'm thinking this girl is HILARIOUS - no fighting! Ha! Good one!) I happen to glance over at her somber face and realize this was no attempt at humor. Her statement had been made with all the earnestness of a kid on Santa's lap.
Crumbs in the Butter Dish and Other Pet Peeves
Picture this: four
teenage girls seated at the dining room table to a feast of their favorite
foods including sushi, cheese and crackers, pizza, strawberries, mini-cupcakes,
and lemon bars. This is the scene I came home to last night
after work. Being a negligent working
