Corgi update: She's still not willing to put much weight on her back stump but also seems pretty chill about the whole thing. More later.
- Reader, I laughed.
- The Cult of Motherhood
- I'm going to have to go see this when I'm in my hometown later this month.
- Why you should care about the Rocket Girls.
- Still out there. Still angry.
- I think I need a flow chart.
- I laughed so hard at this yesterday that my office mate asked if I was OK.
And a personal link, one that you'll likely see until my goal is met, because I'm like an NPR fund-drive that way --
Because I am not getting any younger, I decided now was the best time to run the only marathon I've ever wanted to run. In order to make that happen (apart from all of the running, training, and ice baths, naturally), I'm running under the umbrella of Every Mother Counts, a charity that is dear to me. Did you know that every single day, globally, 800 women die in childbirth. Did you also know that 98 percent of these deaths could have been prevented pretty easily with decent care? Yeah. Me, either. Prompt medical care certainly saved me with baby #1. I can only imagine what would have happened had I not been privileged to live in a developed country.
Please help me help all of those women who are becoming mothers under different circumstances by donating here.
