Stealing a second from other things to jot a few notes.

One – I think Ellen is saying “doggie” in addition to “Daddy” when she says, “Da! Da!” She is motoring around like no body’s business – we have to keep the floors very clean because she will find the one leaf stem tracked in from outside and eat it. Ditto dust bunnies.

She’s been sick the last few days. We’...

I wrote a long blog entry in my head last night as I was laying in bed, reflecting on my evening.

It was helpful to write it out in my head, because it helped me organize my thoughts – even if the actual entry itself isn’t nearly as eloquent. I swear I should carry around a Dictaphone to record things I think of in spots where I can’t write it down.

I think the source of my headache is E!'s Dr. 90210. The Ray doctor's wife is SKELETAL. Yikes! She made me ill when I flipped through the channels last night. Can you imagine the body issues the SO of a plastic surgeon would have!?!?!?! Or his/her children?!?!? Yikes.


I have had a headache non-stop for about 3 days now. I cannot figure out what it is from. I haven't changed my caffeine intake up or down, I haven't added or removed any types of sweetners, I haven't eaten anything st...
