Long time, no blog!
It's been forever since I blogged. The unexpected early arrival of the babies (I was shooting for making it to 37 weeks but the babies came at 34 1/2 instead) turned my life upside down, of course. They were born at 4 lbs 2.3 oz and 4 lbs 0.5 oz... Read more
Happy to be truly alive
As most of you are probably already aware, today is the 12th anniversary of the September 11 attacks. As soon as I realized that, I was immediately grateful to still be blessed with the gift of life. On September 11, 2001, I was a freshman in c... Read more
To clarify, I'm not completely against junk food or think it's evil, I swear!
So I feel kind of bad...I *did* come off rather cranky in my last blog about National Bacon Day. And now I'm going to ramble about it some more! So fair warning to you - this is going to be another long and boring sort of blog.

"You never forget that you know how to purge"

I've just been thinking of how glad I am to have lost all my excess weight before becoming pregnant. I know that the weight loss triggered amenorrhea so that I couldn't get pregnant without hormone shots, and I went through some very confused an... Read more

"Reclaim Your Tastebuds" via attune foods blog
I pretty much never buy Attune Foods products - I've done it a couple times, but they don't make many things that I can find in my grocery store and I like eating lots of variety! But they do have some really good blogs on their site.

Sigh...pizza ordered for everyone at work today
I work in a small museum. 3 full-time staff, including me, and two part-timers. Out of nowhere, my boss the curator decided he was going to order pizza (since we had all our staff here) for us and for some of the staff at one of our sister sites... Read more
Word associations with food
I've been realizing in the last year or two, but particularly since I got pregnant, that I've started making immediate associations with food when I see certain words that might be completely unrelated to food but have some vague connection. Li... Read more
Interesting article about "the other F word"

Alone for 3 weeks!
The husband is currently in Puerto Rico and will stay there for the next 3 weeks doing work stuff. Now I have to do all the stuff that he lets me get away with not doing, because he likes to take care of me and fe... Read more
