January

Again I reply to the triple winds running chromatic fifths of derision outside my window: Play louder. You will not succeed. I am bound more to my sentences the more you batter at me to follow you. And the wind, as before, fingers perfectly its […]

Still Pregnant, and That’s Okay

Still Pregnant, and That’s Okay

Yes, I’m still pregnant. I’ve actually been getting that a lot, that whole sad head nod, sympathetic tsk-noises, people asking me if I just want the baby out already thing. And honestly? Things aren’t really so bad. I’ve definitely not yet had any of those […]

Let the swelling begin!

Let the swelling begin!

Oh, pregnancy. You’re killing me! So, I’ve started to swell. I’d say that it really started in my hands, or at least my right hand, my mousing hand. In healthcare, we call it “dependent edema”, which means you start retaining water in places that sit […]

Aerial Iowa City

Aerial Iowa City

Did I ever tell you about that time that our friend Forrest took us up in his private plane to fly over Iowa City and Coralville? It was pretty righteous, as far as things like that go. It was also three years ago, and this […]

MacBride Raptor Center visit

MacBride Raptor Center visit

I was feeling particularly snarly on Monday, overworked/overwhelmed/pissed about my lost social life/pissed about my lack of private time, so Kevin decided to be the best guy ever, take a night off from the neverending garage project, and drag my sullen ass out to the […]

Detox: Day 2

Detox: Day 2

Day 2 went a little something like this: Breakfast: EGGS! And coffee with almond milk. Lunch: Salad from home, as seen above, with romaine and spinach, salt, pepper, sunflower seeds, and craisins. This was actually a delicious combination, and I treated the craisins as I […]

OMG, shoes

OMG, shoes

These, my friends, are my shoes. Do you see how the tennis shoes (almost entirely skate shoes) outnumber the cute ones? This needs to be remedied, posthaste. But first, I really needed to organize my goddamned front closet. I know I need to get rid […]

No Pants November?

No Pants November?

I’m wearing a skirt for the second day in a row! Can you believe it? (Skirts are actually really comfortable. Why haven’t I figured this out before?) So, as a way to force my hand in transitioning over into being more fancy, I’m thinking about […]

Tandem ride

Tandem ride

We went on a 2-hour bike ride yesterday, with our vintage Schwinn tandem bike. My, what a difference some endurance and increased strength makes! We got the bike a few months ago, and had only really taken it for a swing around the neighborhood once, […]
