Just unfollow me now cause I’m gonna be live blogging my period.I started this morning and used my diva cup for the first time. Like I said, it was so easy. I’ve had almost no cramping. Usually I would have changed my tampon(tampax pearl) a couple times. Mid-morning, I convinced myself that my period must have stopped. I took the cup out and it hadn’t. Rinsed it out and re-inserted. Still so easy.I’m officially a convert and owe my SIL an apology. She’s been trying to convert me since before Luke was born.

I was just thinking I wanted to order one. Where did you get yours?

Amazon. Basically the only place I get anything lol.

They have them at all health food stores too. I know I’ll be running out & getting one the day I start my period again.. If that day ever comes.

If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied

Illuminate the “no”s on there vacancy signs

If there’s no one beside you when your soul embarks

Then I’ll follow you into the dark

There have been so many times I’ve blasted this in the car and screamed my little lungs out while my eyes leaked fluids. There is nothing better then a sing-a-long therapy session.

"

I don’t much care if you breastfed your kid until they started kindergarten, or if you fed them formula from day one. I don’t really care if you turned your infant car-seat forward-facing prior to age 2, or if you homeschool, or if you send your kids to daycare while you go to work. Do you cosleep? Did you circumcise your son? I DON’T CARE. Do you babywear? Push your kid around in a stroller? Use a leash for your kid at Disneyland? Whatever. Good for you.

When it comes to issues of motherhood, there is one issue I care about: some kids don’t have one. All of these petty wars about the choices of capable, loving mothers is just a lot of white noise to me, Quite honestly, I’m often astonished at the non-essential parenting issues I see moms getting their panties in a wad about. Particularly when there are so many kids in this world not being parented at all.

I truly don’t understand how mothers don’t come together more and instead are tearing one another down. It saddens me. This right here. Let’s support one another no matter OUR choices.

So can we talk about how Finding Nemo had not one, but three major characters with disabilities? And how all of those characters (Nemo, Dory, and Gill) were fully fledged characters? And how a core message of the movie was that disability=/=incompetence or worthlessness? And that the movie accomplished this without ever turning into “inspiration porn” or even making it a big deal?

Can we talk about that?

Because it’s kind of awesome.

6 WRITING TIPS FROM JOHN STEINBECK
Abandon the idea that you are ever going to finish. Lose track of the 400 pages and write just one page for each day, it helps. Then when it gets finished, you are always surprised.
Write freely and as rapidly as possible and throw the whole thing on paper. Never correct or rewrite until the whole thing is down. Rewrite in process is usually found to be an excuse for not going on. It also interferes with flow and rhythm which can only come from a kind of unconscious association with the material.
Forget your generalized audience. In the first place, the nameless, faceless audience will scare you to death and in the second place, unlike the theater, it doesn’t exist. In writing, your audience is one single reader. I have found that sometimes it helps to pick out one person—a real person you know, or an imagined person and write to that one.
If a scene or a section gets the better of you and you still think you want it—bypass it and go on. When you have finished the whole you can come back to it and then you may find that the reason it gave trouble is because it didn’t belong there.
Beware of a scene that becomes too dear to you, dearer than the rest. It will usually be found that it is out of drawing.
If you are using dialogue—say it aloud as you write it. Only then will it have the sound of speech.
"If there is a magic in story writing, and I am convinced there is, no one has ever been able to reduce it to a recipe that can be passed from one person to another. The formula seems to lie solely in the aching urge of the writer to convey something he feels important to the reader. If the writer has that urge, he may sometimes, but by no means always, find the way to do it. You must perceive the excellence that makes a good story good or the errors that makes a bad story. For a bad story is only an ineffective story."
