Lessons from the Zoo

Lessons from the Zoo

…because I think about everything… Ha! We went to the zoo for Mother’s Day, mainly because Little Bit has been rather obsessed with monkeys lately. “Oh-Ah-Ah-Oh” is the sound she makes when she sees one or if you talk about them. It’s fantastic. She didn’t nap AT ALL (in fact, this is as much rest […]

It Just Isn’t That Simple

It Just Isn’t That Simple

Remember those days when a box and some sticks were all that you needed to be entertained for hours? When your greatest fear was that you were having spinach for dinner? And answers like this actually got you an A? Man, those were the days. And things were so black and white. Don’t steal. Don’t […]

Life and Death

Life and Death

Very rarely do I ever hear a physician say that they were really glad that they went through the process of becoming one. In fact, 9 times out of 10 I hear the opposite. I hear statements of regret—for not being with family, for a failed marriage, for a squelched life, for a loss of […]

It is Finished.

It is Finished.

It is finished. Year one of medical school is over…along with year one of motherhood. Talk about Bittersweet at its finest. First things first. Cheese sticks and Dr. Pepper from Sonic (because that’s how I roll). Now that I’m sitting on my couch—in a completely quiet house—you would think that I would be running around […]

23 and 1/2 hours

In Bounding Into Health I talked about how important it is that we take care of ourselves. So practically, what does that look like? Being in medical school, I like evidence. Good evidence. I also like to prevent disease as much as possible. So when asked what is the number 1 thing that can not […]

One Year Ago…

One Year Ago…

One year ago, at about this time actually, I was on hands and knees with my first real contractions, yelling at my frantic husband who was running around in his rather comical boxers asking me what to do. “Before you do anything I need for you to put on some clothes so I can take […]

To Be Known

To Be Known

“Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I […]

Well, Finals start Tuesday. For those of you who are new to the blog, sorry that I’m about to drop off the face of the planet!!! I felt like this post would be appropriate considering the freak out that is happening in my mind right now….and now….and now….but this too shall pass. Enjoy!   First, […]

The Personhood Act- The Finale (for now)

The Personhood Act- The Finale (for now)

This Personhood Act string of entries kind of came out of nowhere. I appreciate you reading and commenting and, most of all, thinking. Update: The Personhood Act of Oklahoma with all of the amendments is dead in the House and Senate as of today. The initiate to add the question to the ballot regarding the […]

The Personhood Act- The Opinion

The Personhood Act- The Opinion

The Rules 1. Either read ALL of it, or stop now. (This will be long and involved. Consider yourself warned.) 2. If you haven’t read The Personhood Act yet, do that first.  The Background I’ve been avoiding writing about this for a couple of months now. I don’t like getting involved in politics. That’s why […]
