So, do to some hormonal wackiness, I generally only average one, maaaybe two, periods a year (the fact that I was able to get pregnant twice is still awfully surprising). This is apparently less than ideal, cancer wise, so my doctor gave me some medicine and some instructions to ride the cotton pony at least six times a year.

After avoiding it for several months, I finally gave in and took the medicine and now I’m sitting on the couch with cramps starting and a bag of salty chips by my side. A St. Jude’s commercial just came on and tried to kill me with all the tears. I barely survived going to my son’s first grade concert tonight. The kids. Damn it, the kids were so cute and singing so loudly and Miles is still missing is front teeth and…and…and…


Periods are bullshit, is what I’m saying.
