Nathan hit the big three-oh milestone and we celebrated by being sick together. Thankfully we are recovering and felt well enough to go out to dinner. This dinner was so fancy, I felt out of place wearing a slightly bulky sweater and still trotting around in maternity pants (they don’t quite fit but neither do … Continue reading Welcome to the decade of your 30s, husband of mine.
I wish I could hit pause on Sunday afternoons. It's quiet, we're cozy on the couch while it's snowing outside, Nathan's home and Dom falls asleep in my arms. How can you not love his little arm wrapped around you?
Today, I was teleworking. I logged onto the network this morning, then went and poured a bowl of Fiber One cereal for breakfast. Bad idea. The worst. Within a half an hour, I spent some quality time in the bathroom, ridding it from my system. I thought I could blame this one on pregnancy, but … Continue reading Stay Away From Fiber One

It would seem that I’m not keen on trying to impress my coworkers with anything other than being clean.

I was a little worried about this because I needed to be in … Continue reading Wisdom Teeth

Nathan is falling asleep on the floor. Our little PC attached to our TV is playing through our music library, currently on "C'est Trop Beau" by Tino Rossi. It's dinner time. I need to wake up my husband to go pick something up tonight because we didn't get around to buying fish. You have to … Continue reading Talking About Food Burns Calories
I’ve thought about writing a Larrie’s-year-in-review post since sometime in mid-December but nothing seemed to materialize. Sure you could blame that on me not attempting to write it. Apparently, words don’t just appear all by themselves. Shucks. At one point, I tried pulling out my Google Calendar to review all of the happenings in my … Continue reading 2011: The Year of The Dictator
