Let Me be Sad - Sad is Okay

I’m sad.  I’m listening to sad music and luxuriating in the darkness. Today is the last day of riding the CTA Brown Line train into the Loop for work from our apartment.  We will still be living in the City of Chicago, but will take a different train and a different route.  And it will...

I am the Woman with Two Screaming Toddlers on the Train

  I know I’m begging to be railed on (get it) by writing this post.  I am the woman with the two screaming toddlers on the rush hour train.  Direct all your rage toward me.  I understand.  I’ve been where you stand.  I’ve seen moms and dads struggling to keep kids occupied and quiet whether...

    Katy

    When my husband and I were desperately trying to have a baby, I kept wishing I would just happen upon a baby. Therefore, "I Want a Dumpster Baby" blog was born. All babies are precious and worthy of so much love! I'm a grateful drunk who doesn't drink, a smoker who doesn't smoke and a mom of boy/girl twins from IVF (the devil science brought us babies made of hope, love and science) born January 7th, 2013. Now the blog is called "I Got a Dumpster Family!" because, well, I did. I work as a Big Shot (aka Admin) in a full time job that I love and I'm grateful for the good the bad and the ugly. If life were fair, I would be dead, and I would miss this life beyond my wildest dreams. It's a great day to be alive!
