Too Much of a Good Thing.

(Disclaimer: I’m turning on the TMI filter again for this post, so if you don’t want to hear about things I probably shouldn’t be talking about on the internet, come back another day! If you’re family or in charge of my grades, maybe sit this one out. Otherwise, prepare yourself for some grown-up conversation about lady parts.) Remember the 30-Day Sex Challenge? I committed. I committed hard. In fact, by about Day 12 we had gone from doing it three times a month to doing...

Back in KCMO

I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth. I’m just back in Kansas City trying to wrap up my field practicum before my fall semester begins next week. The end of August is always a hectic time, but with me skipping across the country just days before starting a new school year, things are especially chaotic. I can’t even...

I don’t want to write about suicide. I don’t even want to think about it. I’ve been accused of being suicidal when I absolutely wasn’t, and dismissed when I actually was. But this week, suicide is all I can think about. In fact, I’ve hardly thought about anything else for the last 48 straight hours. Monday night, we took the...

If I Had Known That All You Wanted to Hear About is Sex…

After panicking so many times about writing that last post, and feeling so nervous about hitting the “Publish” button, I am so relieved and inspired by the overwhelming response from my readers. I think I’ve had more comments on that post than any other post since I moved to my subscription model. You guys were so supportive and willing to...

The 30-Day Sex Challenge

ID-10073181

I’ve been avoiding my blog for a week because I want to talk about something, but I don’t want certain people to read it. It’s deeply personal yet — I know from recent international internet debate — a common, shared experience among a great many people. And this is my personal blog, protected by a paywall, unavailable to google searches...

He’s Eight.

jonas-8th-birthday

August 1st, 2006 was the most frightening, most transformative, and most exhilarating day of my entire life. I fell asleep the night before in a hospital bed, hooked to a thousand machines, after hours of delirious pain from Pitocin-induced contractions only finally calmed through the sweet relief of epidural anesthesia inserted into my spine by a man I never saw...

Public Pools and Mystery Meat.

jolene-mom

I’m down with strep throat again. Yippee!!! Folks may remember my EPIC 35th birthday party plans were ruined when I woke up on my birthday eve with the same fire in my throat. That was only last year. I’ve had positive strep tests at least half a dozen times in my adulthood. Apparently this is now becoming an annual ritual....

Dentures.

Flexitechiusa

I fear the dentist. I fear the judgement and the shame and the ridicule and the heavy-handed sales tactics after they peer into my messed up mouth. It’s always the same: “You can’t go on like this. You need to get this work done. Don’t you care if you lose all your teeth!?” YES. I CARE. But I’ve spent most...
