90 Day Sociopath


I just listened to the Dirty John podcast in two days and Luis reminds me of this type of serial predator who creeps out everyone but the woman he’s conning.  I feel for Molly screaming that she feels like she’s going insane.  It’s not you, it’s Luis.  She held her own and made a rational argument in the face of gaslighting insanity.  I’ve been drawling to Trent all week: Take your little ring and get outta my house!



Here’s a sweet, sad, supportive thread for those who experience emotional abuse:

And here’s some transdermal cream from GroundSwell for you spoonies out there. Whoopi Goldberg has her own line of PMS tinctures and bath soaks!

I tried those period panties.

I gave in to those Knixwear Instagram ads because I’m traveling in the new year and I need a bra with four strap options.  I waited until Black Friday and then added on a sports bra (fave accessory for doula work and lazing around house on-call and wearing biker tees exposing my bra) for free shipping.  I saw they had period absorbing panties but went to their Knixteen site where they’re a bit cheaper.  These can hold up to two tampons worth of blood but I’m not trying that with endometriosis.  I use them as backup when torrents of blood gush forth and I use pad after pad and I’m really active at a birth.  I’m using them today on a flight on the last day of my period to absorb random spotting without having to deal with pantiliners.  Didn’t worry at all about spotting,  no issues.

Undies are super comfy and silky with no panty lines.  Clean structure, black.

The bras adjust to your shape over time so they’re initially tight and then relax over the day.  Wearing the Evolution bra on flight and the Longevity bra is the only other one I took for 6 days of travel (with washing machine access).

When you’re too tired to make it to the toilet


Floribama Shore


Cortni, it’s called the ocean, nature’s toilet.

The 24 year-old women hope they’re still young enough to find a man.  And they’re divorced.  Or just ended 10 year relationships. 😵


Restaurant by Joss Whedon?

Laughing that this date cost $150 in PCB and Gus is SO mad that he didn’t get a kiss from Nilsa.  She isn’t an escort service who owes you BJs for cheesecake.

I’m getting escaped cult vibes from Jeremiah.  Home schooled, his name is Jeremiah, his name is Jeremiah.  He’s so so hot and well-dressed (the suspenders!) and goes for pee-pee Kortni.  Cortni?  And then he insists they split the check.  Highly suspect for a Southern gentleman.  Then he’s uncomfortable with Kearney Courtney Corny krtny showing up in his bed.  Like a gay man or virgin ex-cult member.   And then Jeremiah places her in the friend zone.  Hrm.  Nilsa flashes her manufactured breasts and invites him to swim with her and Jeremiah declines to clean the kitchen.  The evidence mounts.  But then he hits on Kayla Jo on the beach!  And he’s always cleaning.  Child labor habits from the family cult?  Now he’s talking down to Aimee for being a messy Bessy.  Jeremiah is fascinating.


Trent and I LITERALLY scream-laughed at this image. Aimee, get some Baby Foot.

Aimee and Kortni are smoking menthols and using long-reach butane lighters.  I like it.


Can’t wait to see Nilsa at 30.

“Her vagina has been intact for 30 years.  That’s, like, ancient.”

Offensive!  Kayla Jo has 5 more years until her vagina is ancient.  Also Kayla Jo is only 26 hahaha.  I know how old that seems when you’re 22 though.  Creepy old 26 year-olds.

I tell myself that we’ll keep watching solely because these may be future Challenge contestants.


Postpartum in Japan

Learning about other cultures’ postpartum traditions in my infant sleep training. I love the concept of the mother being treated like a baby herself.

Sharicks in Tokyo

It’s the last day of my maternity leave! I better write a blog while I have a chance.

In Japan, it’s really common for a pregnant wife to go home to her mother about a month before her due date, have her baby there, and then stay for another month or two before coming home to her husband. Her husband may or may not visit during that time. There are several different reasons for this, an obvious one being that when they come home, there’s work to be done! A husband and kid/kids to take care of…why not stay with Mom where they’re taken care of and can rest?

Since that is so common, it wasn’t too surprising that so many of our Japanese friends asked if I was going to go home to America to have the baby, or if my mom or family was coming to help me…
