Just a break from the Q&A session for a public service announcement.  First, I want to say, that overall, I really love my job.  Right Now? Not. So. Much. Bri out.

And I don’t mean emotionally, either. Sheila gets next dibs in the oh-god-give-me-material quest.  Don’t worry, I am getting them all in approximate order, and if you posted a question I will get to it.  Plus, I need to milk this until my writer’s block is over. To post an earlier pic, this: Is my […]

Okay – Kat got first dibs in my little “please, please tell me what the heck you are interested in reading” exercise.  And it’s a convenient two-fer since it also answers part of Sheila’s question/s. First, for you non-SCA folks, an explanation – in the SCA’s medieval organization, it is the common practice to register […]

It’s not that I don’t have things to write about.  It’s just that I don’t have anything that is exactly lighting my fingers on fire here.  I have some things brewing in the back of my head, but they just haven’t found their way to the front door yet. Soooo…  I am going to go […]

My son is not talking.  Not really anyway.  He says something kinda sorta like “Mama” when he gets really desperate (like when he is trying to make me wake up at oh-my-god-too-early).  At one year old, this had me a bit concerned. But he babbles with intent – it’s like he’s TRYING to tell me […]

I SHOULD learn a lesson from Sarah.  I have blog accounts everywhere, I mean – EVERYWHERE.  Most of them just refer you to this one – Sarah is smarter.  She has figured out the magic of RSS feeds.  I am not entirely sure I want that much exposure, but if I decide I do, you […]

I have decided that I must have THIS: http://www.cafepress.com/tobh.62159367 for my son before he is old enough to protest (or read, for that matter).  Yes, the truth is that one of the rewards for 18 hours of labor, a c-section scar and 11 months of breastfeeding is the fact that I get to dress my […]

I have a lot of my friends from the SCA who read this blog who have mentioned a notable lack of posts on the SCA here.  For the uninitiated the SCA is the acronym for the Society for Creative Anachronism, a medieval-renaissance history group that has been described as the 800-lb gorilla of living history […]

Okay, a LOT of you know this.  A chunk of the people that read this blog day-to-day (and those that bothered to read the “About” page that I stress over on a daily basis), know that I am a (insert gasp here) “older mom”. I conceived my son exactly one week after my 40th birthday.  […]

I made a tongue-in-cheek reference to this on my MySpace blog, but, at the risk of repeating myself, I am going to reissue this warning to the if-a-little-is-good-more-is-better crowd. Over the counter drugs are NOT benign.  Do NOT exceed the dose on the package even if you think you are so much of a man […]
