Is it a sex blog? A mommy blog? A bitch & moan blog? Um, . . . yeah. This is my place to be totally honest. In my real life, I feel like I'm always lying to somebody about something. Here, I am totally honest. Brutally so. However, no matter what bad things I say about my kids, I adore them and would never ever really, say, sell them on Ebay. The husband, often referred to as Spousehole, is another story. Oh yeah - if you are under 18 (or if you are my husband), please leave now.

HNT - Birthday Edition!!


Here I am 40 years ago (yes, I finally got my scanner to work with linux!):

And here's me 18 months later with my very best friend, Sarge:

Me at 26, taken for my firm's brochure:


And me at 31, 40 lbs later, in my wedding dress
(that I tried on last week and it's too big -yea me!)


Currently I weigh less, have (much) longer hair, and am not foolish enough to appear in public in that much white! You'll just have to use your imagination . . .

I know, I know, I'm very, very late to post my HNT. Sorry!
School bus woes again (no pick-up, AGAIN) and grocery shopping day, arrgh!)

My friend, Semi-Celibate Man, has posted his very last blog entry. Please go say goodbye and good luck to a wonderful blogger and friend and a true man stepping up to make the hard choices necessary for his family. He is a treasure and will be missed by so many of us who enjoyed his writing, his unique worldview, and, of course, his revealing photos and videos. Take care, SCM.

Why do we get half-nekkid? Want to join the fun? See Os at HNT_1
