What to Talk About?

I have been utterly swamped. In trying to find yet more ways to support the family, alas, this blog and our birth website,, have been neglected. We have been through a rather rough patch. My husband has developed more health issues and we've been going through all sorts of tests for him. His dad, my wonderful father-in-law, passed away on February 2. Needless to say, it has been a bit stressful around here.

In the meantime, I have seen posts about cesarean rates by state, breastfeeding once again being attacked by Facebook and a possible resulting lawsuit, and a study showing that elementary school kids in Glasgow overwhelmingly believe that it is okay for husbands to strike wives "if the wife did something to deserve it," like have an affair (admittedly bad, but still), or was late getting dinner on the table. That is just the tip of the iceberg. Sheesh. What's a blogger to do? With so many different topics screaming to be written about, how can I fit it in my busy day?

I am working on more book reviews and an art project review for our website. I hope to have at least one posted by the end of this week. I also posted a copy of my article that was published in the Winter 2009 issue of Midwifery Today. You can read it here.

Ridiculous! You'd think that Facebook would have learned by now after what happened last time. The whole thing makes me wish I had pictures of my daughter latched on - I'd post them under the pretense of education, but with the expected benefit of irking them off.
