I work with two twenty-something men, and it's almost adorable how little they know about pregnancy. For instance, I plan on working pretty much up to my due date. My coworker looked at me, wide-eyed, and went, "but... WHAT IF YOUR WATER BREAKS??" Apparently he thought it was going to be some literal flood of… » 9/01/14 7:41pm Yesterday 7:41pm

I have left the house exactly twice this weekend. Once for a pedicure, and once to get light bulbs and soda. It is GLORIOUS. I'm re-watching "Don't Trust the B" on Netflix and already beat the Lego Movie video game. I've barely even left the couch because husband is in full-on "take care of pregnant wife" mode. … » 9/01/14 5:22pm Yesterday 5:22pm

Personally? SO worth it. It's a damn marriage-saver. We pay for 4 hours every other week, and they do a really thorough job. It's totally eliminated the arguments of "who does more around the house" as well as any related resentment. Pro-tip : see if they'll come on Fridays. Then you get to spend the whole… » 9/01/14 2:19pm Yesterday 2:19pm

I love these dudes who genuinely believe that everything they find attractive on women evolved that way specifically to attract them. I used this on another post, but it's like a puddle who believes it fits so nearly into a pothole because the pothole was created to perfectly fit the puddle. Evolution is complex,… » 9/01/14 9:41am Yesterday 9:41am

Hey lady!! I made a recent comeback as well after ghosting for a while. Since I'm pretty much immobile at the moment while I wait for Baby Ruth to arrive, I have a lot more time for Internet :) » 9/01/14 9:23am Yesterday 9:23am

Similarly, I was going to suggest quiche! Just buy a frozen crust -they usually come as 2-packs, so you can even make two at once and freeze one. Throw whatever eggs, cheese, veggies and meat you have together, stir with some milk or sour cream (whatever dairy you have on hand really) and then bake. Cheap,… » 8/31/14 1:15pm Sunday 1:15pm

Take her up on her hourly rate, offer her 10% more "because you're family" and outline a potential bonus for excellent deliverables. That way, you pay more for good work if she delivers, but don't have to overpay if she's not that good. » 8/30/14 9:34pm Saturday 9:34pm

Hi! No worries in the age of the post, I still get the notifications :). The answer is a little tricky, because I got pregnant a month after finishing the juice fast. So, I've gained about 35 lbs since (I actually, at 39 weeks pregnant, am only 10 lbs more than when I started the juice fast). The good news is,… » 8/30/14 2:29pm Saturday 2:29pm

Dude, first off, you are way too hard on yourself re: writing and essay skills. Your posts are a treat and a delight - I get really excited seeing them in the GT queue! I think they would make an awesome book someday. » 8/29/14 8:12am Friday 8:12am

I don't really get the trend, tho. Like, I know Jez isn't a feminist publication, but why did they need to have the "Rosebudding" article, and this one? Are we trying to out-Cosmo Cosmopolitan with weird sex stuff? Is it just to show how cheeky and fun and down we all are? Because...meh. I could do without it. » 8/28/14 3:41pm Thursday 3:41pm
