…how early pregnancy feels like a secret.
I am a firm believer in woman’s intuition at this point in my life. My life experiences just seem to time and again prove it to be true. My husband and I both get along better with the opposite sex. Thus, I have lots of guy friends and he girl friends. Every once and awhile he befriends a girl who I see as being sketchy. He’ll claim it’s jealousy, and I admit, when it comes to...
I have to apologize for my recent posts being so negative. Between working a job where everyone has to be smiley all the time to being smiley at home for the boy, this is pretty much my only outlet for the negative stuff going on lately. That being said, I have UH-LOT to be thankful for! Just paid the remaining bills for the month and we have cushion left in the bank! This was an unexpected...
I was stoked to have painted half of my bedroom avocado. We even got curtains up this week. Fancy! :)
And thus I wasn’t able to watch Glee tonight. Oh well. I DVRd it, so I can watch it this weekend.

Today’s book is my FAVORITE book EVER: Green Was the Earth on the Seventh Day by Thor Heyerdahl. This man has been a hero of mine since I discovered he existed high school. I was a partial anthropology major in college and this man LIVED the science. He took his new bride and moved to live on a cannibal island in the South Pacific in this book. In other books he made rafts he sailed from...
I love this poster!
A bunch more can be found here. Mico is pretty awesome.
I had an IUD in for almost four years and during that time I didn’t get my period. I had it removed about 6 weeks ago and it was shocking to have one again. Like, when I got it, I literally thought I needed to go to the ER for a second, then remembered that this is normal. So here I am, my whoremones way more out of control now than when I had the IUD, trying not to freak out at my family...

S’mores. Relaxation. Now forcing myself to wake up with this cold and get on my responsibilities. Step One: Stop sneezing. Step Two: Make breakfast. Possible Step Three: Shower, if there’s time. Why is that as a parent hygiene falls so low on the totem?
The Enders family is pretty suhweet. www.tourtot.com Our boys hung out at the racetrack this summer. Also, Ace just released a new acoustic album, which your ears will want you to buy. You can buy here or listen here.
About to run to the store to get s’mores supplies. The neighborhood kids are on a witch hunt in my yard, currently shooting at me through the window. Let the sugar fueled outdoor shenanigans begin!
A lot of my work happy hours evolve into late nights where “errrrbody in the club gettin tipsy.” Tonight is one of those nights. Score.

Easter Island: A Stone Age Civilization of the Pacific by Alfred Metraux This lil ole book is one of my favorites. The first Christmas that we were back together, this is the gift I received from Brent. I was applying for a field school to go on an archaelogical dig on Easter Island the following summer. This was my good luck charm. As it would happen, I was accepted. Then life hit. We last...
Job Well Done Ace, Job Well Done.
This is something I don’t often consciously think about, but is nonetheless true: I am proud of myself. Damned proud. I graduated from college at twenty, got married, baby boy at twenty-one, been bringing home the bacon the past few years while husband was going to school, pay my mortgage every month, and my family is still in one piece. It’s been a long, rocky road, but I’m...
Our Story - Abridged Version
Eight years ago, this picture was taken: A few underage beers, some whispered words, and I was in love. Hook line and sinker. Gone. When I moved out for college, our relationship became tense, so I broke it off. A LOT happened in the next 18 months. I developed a bit of a drinking problem and my grades went to shit so I decided to move West after visiting Seattle and Vancouver with my...
Five Years Ago Tomorrow...

Hi. I’m Laura and I’m a book fiend. Ok, so I read. A LOT. Sometimes to the point of distracting me from other points of life. I don’t get a lot of large chunks of spare time to read, so I take it where I can get it, namely on my bus rides to/from work as well as my lunch break. Since my husband does mornings with the little man as I am already at work, I have the pleasure of...
Too much skin?
For some reason I can’t feel my sweater on my chest so I keep looking down feeling like I’m showing a ton of cleavage at work. When I look down and see only sweater, no skin, I begin to think I am losing my mind. It’s only 8:20 am and I am ready to go home. It’s going to be a long day… Had an awesome visit with my mom yesterday and we’re going to the flea...

Just because I haven’t had a period for almost four years doesn’t mean you need to make the first one post-IUD removal wicked bad to make up for that fact. Or I guess you do.
