Dirty Hair Picture
Blame it all on the little boy on my lap who doesn't realize that THERE IS NO MORE UMBILICAL CORD!
The upside to him tearing all the hair out of my head is that I won't have to worry about washing it. Don't worry Britney Spears, I understand. I'm a mommy too.
Here's the rest of the GRIMM tale: SNOW WHITE GETS NO SLEEP! I haven't had a full night's sleep in about two years. Here's the un-cut, disturbing version of the story:

Dear Internet Traveler,
Welcome to my writer's blog, started about six years ago for fun. Over time, the writing I have posted has ranged from personal reflection, to Long Island history research, to tall tales for my own amusement, to feature articles for local newspapers. As you can see from topics listed here, I travel in many mental directions in regard to interests. Click on the tabs and labels to explore my strange mind which senses that you may be having a criss-cross day. If so, perhaps this blog will distract you. However, please note that if you tell me my blog is beautiful just to get me to advertise rhinoplasty surgery and cheap drugs from Canada in your comment, I will ask the gods to give you a tail that cannot be concealed.
