Finally squeezed out a #personal #blog after a six month hiatus. It was not unlike squeezing out a #baby. (JK.)

Elizabeth Murray was born on a Sunday. She came into the world just after six am, weighing around six and a half pounds. And at this very moment, she is nearing six months old. (Now we are six ... months?) ​The labour was easy (as far as labours go). It's already hard to remember the details.

LAST BLOG POST OF THE DAY, UP! IT'S ALL ABOUT HOW I LANDED IN THE HOSPITAL AND WHAT HAPPENED THERE AND IT IS VERY BORING, ALTHOUGH THERE ARE A FEW BAD JOKES.

This is the third and final instalment in my "I'm so fucking bored because I've been in the hospital" series. For part one (random musings)  go here , for part two (ranting about pregnancy), go here...

BLOGGING! THREE POSTS TO COME. ONE FOR EACH DAY I'VE BEEN IN THE HOSPITAL. ALL WILL BE EXPLAINED. I AM FINE SO THIS ALL-CAPS BIT IS REALLY MISLEADING. SORRY. 

http://www.jenselk.com/speaks/in-the-waiting-line-part-1-musings1
A note before we begin:   For the last three days, I've been stuck in the hospital. I am okay. It's just pregnancy stuff (more on that later). It's been boring as hell. Luckily, there was decent...

So I blogged ANOTHER thing -- not a fat thing, a thing about #friendship. I dunno if it's any good, but read it here: http://www.jenselk.com/speaks/they-will-be-your-home

I have been making my own laundry detergent! Learn how: http://www.jenselk.com/chic/diy-laundry-detergent-not-so-chic-but-very-cheap
So this is not a chic, decor-related post, but it is about a homemakerish thing, so I thought I'd throw it up. I've been making my own laundry detergent. Yep! Super Susie Homemaker! That's me! Lots...

New #personal   #blog  post. This one's about friends. Keeping 'em. Culling 'em. That sort of thing. Happy New Year!

http://www.jenselk.com/speaks/on-hollow-men-and-women
I don't make New Year's resolutions any more. Haven't for a long time. If you know me, you probably know that. There were a few years when I pretending I'd stopped making them, but quietly pressed my...

Little #blog post with a #pregnancy update. People can be kind. That's the takeaway. http://www.jenselk.com/speaks/35-weeks-and-alls-well-and-some-folks-are-kind
Hey yo. So let's start right off with the good stuff: I'm officially 35 weeks along today and my evil spawn continues to marinate. After the whole saga with the hospital, this is positive news. I'm technically still threatening preterm labour, and in case you're interested, my annoyingly ...

It's my birthday, so I wrote a few words.
It's my birthday. I am 35 years old today. THE BLOG IS TEN. Believe it! We are both sailing into our twilight years, Internet people. We are riding the wind.  I always have trouble with these...

HEY! So I wrote a thing for a neat Tumbler and it went up today. It's a #fat thing. It was a bit scary. http://iamthisfat.tumblr.com/post/119614599166/whats-the-first-thing-you-noticed #SA @HAES#FA
This is how fat I am. Or rather, this is how fat I was three years ago, on my wedding day. I’ve been both significantly smaller and significantly larger, but this photo is not so far off from the size...

Today I was reminded of my love for funny/punny vintage Valentine's Day cards. So I compiled some. It's an excellent blog post. Not at all lazy. http://www.jenselk.com/speaks/my-punny-valentine
You what's really come a long way? The internet. Every year, I look online for old punny Valentine's Day cards, and the pickings used to be slim, but man ... things have changed.  That's true about...

I wrote a little post about the @AnnexFlea. And about how maybe @WillAndBequeath should do fleas. (Should I?) http://www.jenselk.com/chic/the-annex-flea-and-me
Hello fellows. As 2014 draws to a close, and Pantone debuts dirty wine as the "it" colour for the new year, and all those annoying listicles start pouring out, I find myself thinking about what I...
