Where was I?

It's been a while since I've posted anything. Honestly, I read so many others blogs and I am truly intimidated by their style of writing. I'm worried I'll end up boring the shit out of everyone. Oh well, you can't please every body right?

Just celebrated my 38th birthday a week ago (November 24). I have 2 years left before I give up on my pipe dream of having another child. Sometimes I really think that I'm crazy to want to start all over with the sleepless nights, the poopy diapers, doing it all myself. But then again for as long as I can remember, I've always wanted 2 children so I keep on keeping on. Minus all the medicalized fertility treatments. The pocket book could not handle the cost of that and besides it's not as if I'm childless.

My Thanksgiving was great. I just love Thanksgiving I suppose because it always falls around or sometimes even on my birthday. Due to religious reasons, my birthday was never celebrated but we did gather with family on Thanksgiving. I did end up with a terrible headache due to drinking ONE Green Apple Martini. Ugh! It's not like I haven't drank one before but good ole BIL made me a double. I ended up climbing into my tub at midnight for a hot soak until it went away just enough for me to go back to sleep. I swear the older I get, the less alcohol I can drink. I already found out the hard way that I can't tolerate red wine either. But then again, maybe the problem is it's cheap alcohol. MIL does like to drink that Franzia refrigerated stuff and they switched vodka brands, from Kettle One to Svedka. Who knows but I'm not going anywhere alcohol for a while.

Happy Belated B-day! I can't have more than 1 drink either, it's just not worth it. Quit worrying about boring everyone. I'm sure as heck no writer. I just try to write as I talk. I know I can't even compare to most of the ones I read, like slackermommy, mammalogues, midwesternmommy, but you know what, they all used to write for newspapers or actually get paid to blog. Just do it for you and if you don't want to don't. I got tired of feeling like I knew all of these people so well and they had NO idea who the heck I was, so I knew I had to get out there and just do it. :)

That's exactly why I decided I needed to start a blog. I felt if I was going to make comments, people should get to know who I am. Slowly, but surely, I get this off the ground.

I saw you on Tamberlyn's blog. And wanted to check you out. I grew up in Illinois too. (Breese actually) so its always great to meet fellow St. L bloggers/Illinoisians. :-)

Take care

I'm glad to read about you! Please keep writing. I love it!


I have found that some alcohol I can handle still and some I can't. Don't know why the difference. But a good amber beer works like a charm!

I'm the same way. The older I get the less I can tolerate. And not just alcohol, that goes for a lot of things. At the rate I'm going I will be a very crabby old woman!
