I tried THINX period underwear (TMI warning: lady blood)

August 14, 2017


… and I love them. But I think there may be a caveat to this for other women. Even though I know I’m already being super-green by not having my own kids, I try to do whatever I can to make as little waste as possible in my daily life. I always use reusable shopping […]

You guys. My body is REJECTING Cheez-Its.

May 12, 2017


I don’t know what the fuck is happening. I just can’t imagine THIS is happening. When my friend Camilla came to visit me in April, she brought me two family-size boxes of my favorite Cheez-it flavor: regular. NOTHING HAS CHANGED since I finished off the last box, except that I may have started eating less […]

A new way to fight the anxiety that keeps me up at night:

March 11, 2017


Reading. I’ve been able to MOSTLY get a hold on the side-effect anxiety that I’ve been experiencing. Once I realized it was just a side effect and not really something in my own mind, it was a lot easier to push the ‘every single way you could die on your honeymoon‘ thoughts out of my […]

TMI warning: fighting flatulence

January 14, 2017


I’m lactose-intolerant. I  know this, my readers know this, and my husband DEFINITELY knows this. And lately (last year, all years since we moved here) I’ve really let myself go in terms of foods I should be avoiding but don’t because they taste good. I’ll usually allow myself to have pizza. I prefer to never […]

I thought I was having a mid-life crisis. It turns out it might just be side effects of my birth-control pills. Or other medication.

October 23, 2016


I’ve actually been wanting to write about what’s been going on for a while, but I wasn’t really sure how to talk about it, or what to do about it, really. So I’m going to try my best to explain what the hell has been going on. For the past year or so, at least […]

My trip to England and Germany was a great reminder that I’m gluten- and lactose- intolerant

February 26, 2016


Seriously. I know I have to write about our trip and add photos, and I’ll get to that. When we got to England on our first evening, after almost 24 hours of traveling, the first thing I did was eat a plate of cheese. A plate. Of different, beautiful, English cheeses. I did it even […]

We Went to Thailand! 2/3: Koh Tao

January 20, 2016


We took a shuttle to the bus station, and took a bus to Surat Thani town, where we boarded a ferry that would take us to Koh Tao. That morning, we’d had our last lunch at 6am at the lovely Tree House hotel, and then said our goodbyes. We were pretty sad to leave the […]
