Mary Carmen

Recovering academic librarian, SAHM, knitter, yarn snob, & walking addict. My world is being overtaken by toys that make noise.
I just spent 2 hours in Babies R Us. How does that even happen?
I can't imagine, unless I sit down and doze off. :) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
because things. you know. - Big Joe Silence
I have no idea how I did this when I was 7 months pregnant. I am already so over packing and wanna just nap.
I was so impressed that you did all that pregnant. Now you know why! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Totally. - Mary Carmen
Your in-laws provided greater motivation. - Holly's favorite Anna from Android
Very interesting photo set. One of my beefs with projects like this is that I rarely see anyone with my body type, (the imagery of overweight seems to stop at the line between overweight and obesity, which could be the difference between a size 16 and a size 22 (not every obese person weighs 500+ pounds)) however, the two images of the overweight...
women actually remind me of me. Interesting to see it. - Mary Carmen
Packing and baking. Baking and packing.
Sentence I just said to my child: "Find your nappy place."
Topping the list of awesome things that happened in NY, M finally got on a twice a day nap schedule. I owe a debt of thanks to my mom. - Mary Carmen
blessed naptyme! - Big Joe Silence
I think my Give a Fuck finally got up and left.
Let the packing frenzy begin!
Are you home now? - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Got home last night. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Feeling like the fattest fat who ever fatted.
*fist bump, MC!* - B. LB.
I think your autocorrect changed them from "phat" - Johnny from iPhone
Is that good or bad? Because if it's bad, I might have to smack you for using that kind of language about my friend. - Holly's favorite Anna
Yeah! What she ^^^ said!!! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
No phat is definitely good. At least where I come from. - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte
"Phat is good, in the same way as 'bad' and 'sick' can be," said Pete , Professor of Those Dang Kids Studies at the University of Cod Liver Oil-Get Off My Lawn - Pete
I think Anna was talking to me. And no, I don't feel the good version of phat. Only the bad. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
ETA that my comment was one of solidarity for having those feelings myself, not to say you are any kind of fat. But you are certainly phat. *hugs* - B. LB. from Android
Aw, MC, *hugs* - Anne Bouey
Here's the deal with me:
I'm a hyper, happy, always look on the bright side, workaholic, who loves to laugh, have a fun time, drink snooty Belgian beer, and knows dick about wine. I swear like a sailor on shore leave and have a thick NYC accent. I could eat pizza or a bacon cheeseburger every day and be quite happy. I will always think my ass and hips and thighs are too big and will perpetually be "on a diet." I like being silly before I fall asleep and first thing when I wake. I am mostly nocturnal and do enjoy sleeping in very late on Sundays. I love football and hockey. I'm addicted to yarn and often come home with it. I will cry any time I see a stray cat or dog and I get very grouchy when I'm hungry or tired. I hate talking on the phone, but love getting/sending text messages. I think the Who and the Kinks are the best bands ever and that the Rolling Stones are overrated. I will go to every record store in NYC to hunt down that Sweet Things 7 inch on vinyl and will listen to the same record over and over... more... - Mary Carmen
