We are a married couple who adopted our little Russky, Nikita {aka Nicky, Nicky noodle, little man, Nikoli, the Nickster, crazy dude, goofball, puppy love, etc...you get the picture!} from St Petersburg, Russia four years ago. Join us as we stumble through the joys and perils of parenthood, while our son teaches us a few things along the road...


Step Away From the Bikini

Today I did the unspeakable. Well, at least for most women it is, especially at the dawn of Spring, with Winter just shedding her ugly coat. What did I do you ask?  I tried on a bathing suit.

EGADS! Why?!

Well, for some reason I got it in my head the other night that I should try my old suits on my pasty-white body, what with all the pretty new ones already being proffered in the stores. So I pulled out my bathing beauties...the ones that I’ve had for years....the ones that have always fit. Apparently, that is, until now. Seriously - I don’t know what I was expecting. It’s not like I haven’t felt my pants giving me a tighter hug these days. But, really?! I wish I could blame the heinous pill I’m taking. Although, in my defense, it’s not working all that well (I’m still having 10+ days of migraines a month, although I suppose it's better than 18+), and I’m definitely losing a lot of hair (one of the major side-effects). And, it has made my appetite increase, but do I really have to go back for seconds (ok…sometimes thirds) at dinner, and do I really need to snack all day…I mean, there’s only so far carrots and little cuties will carry you!  Maybe I just need to get a spray-tan...tan fat looks better than pasty-white fat, right?


So, now I’m sitting at my desk...depressed...with a migraine...drowning my sorrows in pasta. What’s one more little carb gonna hurt?
