"Hey, you've got a bone back here," my husband said, poking at my back. "Ye-ah." "It was more padded until recently." "I'm glad you said that. You know that 10 pounds I lost so quickly? I've gained all of that back, and another ... Read more

Had a traumatic cognitive breakthrough-type thing last month. Useful in the long run, stressful in the short. Completely physically and emotionally exhausted right now. Trying to write about it. That'll be a long post. Have a series of shor... Read more

The whole family is down with the flu, with the baby and I getting the worst of it. I haven't been much concerned about my weight under the circumstances, since standing for more than 10 minutes tires me out. Hopefully in a few days I'll feel... Read more
