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.

Easing back in . . .

I get to go home for Thanksgiving! I'm very excited. We didn't make it home for Turkey Day last year and didn't expect to this year, but now we're going! Spousehole has an interview in an adjoining Midwestern state the day before Thanksgiving, so the whole family is going along and heading to Grandma's for turkey, stuffing, etc. My mom is actually not so thrilled. She was thinking she wouldn't cook and she and my dad would just take my nephew and my sister (if she doesn't have to work) out to eat. But with all of us coming, it makes more sense to stay home. I have offered to cook, just using her food, kitchen, etc. but I don't know if she can handle that. If she watches me cook, she'll just feel I'm doing it all "wrong" and try to take over.

I haven't sprung on them that coming home for Thanksgiving means we may not make it for Christmas ($ and all), but I don't really want to think about that either. I've NEVER spent Christmas anywhere but with my family. I realize I'm 42 years old and should really be ready to make some new traditions with my own kids, but wah!, I don't wanna!

In other news, I can't believe I forgot to mention the "procedure" I had done back in September. I had NovaSure done. It's a type of endometrial ablation. It's supposed to reduce heavy periods and between period bleeding. My periods were so heavy that I became anemic and experienced "flooding" sometimes. I also had bleeding every time I had sex. But since the procedure (outpatient surgery) I haven't had any bleeding; none whatsoever. No periods, no nothing. Of course, I haven't had sex to try that out yet*, but I have high hopes. They say that my periods may come back eventually, but will be MUCH, MUCH lighter than ever before. Keep your fingers crossed!!

*Any volunteers to help with that? For purely scientific purposes, of course :-)

To blog is a self-invasion of privacy

Oh, my goodness! Two posts in a week! Be still, my heart!

I remember how weird it felt when we were first married, and we had to start the 'Holiday Rotation' - Thanksgiving with one set of parents, Christmas with the other, and then the following year, switch. The first time you do a holiday apart from your family, it's just a little odd.

In recent years, Molly's family has kinda stopped doing the holidays together, so we have 'our own' for those turns; but we still travel to be with my family. Given my parents' general health, tho, I'm starting to wonder how much longer we'll be doing that. . .

But hey - you could be coming back to the Midwest, eh? We've missed you. . . ;)

And, uh, sorry - fun as it sounds, I'm not a viable candidate to help with your 'research'

Volunteers? Pick me!!

I'm going to be discussing that same procedure with my doc in less than a month now. You're the second person I know who has had it and is pleased with the results so I'm hoping it will be the solution for me too.

Umm, I'd volunteer in a heartbeat (always ready for a little scientific investigation) but not sure I'm the gender you're looking for. ;-)

a volunteer? for scientific research? count me in! of course, I feel doubly obligated as a southern gentleman to make up for what sounds like a subpar time in Charleston. Just so long as you don't tell anyone that I'm a Yankee import and rather do hate it down here. Our little secrets, no?
