Hi.

Welcome to my place.

I write about about being a 40-something mum of five wonderfully exasperating children, attachment parenting, my adventures in the kitchen, and whatever else comes to mind.

Stupid Hormones

I will be glad when my hormones settle down again. I'm crying over everything. Of course, some might argue I have stuff to cry about but this really isn't normal for me even when I'm upset. I cry when I'm *really* upset, but not on the phone with the pharmicist or when I'm buying groceries. This is stupid. I hate feeling perpetually weepy--it's one of those "girly" things with which I'm really uncomfortable. Boo hiss. So to cheer myself up last night, I decided to watch the happiest movie ever made: Cold Mountain.

I'm a freaking sucker for punishment. BTW, Bluegrass can be added to the list of things that will make me cry right now. Great movie, based on a great book, but damn' sad.

In Nortel news:

In unrelated news, I think I will make tomato noodle soup for supper tonight. I may even post the recipe here!

Meme Time

Yeah, 33.
