vicki glembocki (wife of thad and mother of 21 month old blair) is the former articles editor of Philadelpia Magazine. Now pregnant with her 2nd baby is working on her book to be out fall 2007.
The Second Nine Months: A New Mom Tells the Truth about Having a Baby
Philadelphia magazine editor Vicki Glembocki tells the brutally honest and very funny truth of one woman’s transition into motherhood, breaking the silence around what new moms are really thinking and feeling, including just how hard it is to raise that little one. Sure, motherhood can be filled with blissful moments, all those little firsts with your baby. But what about those "other" moments in between? In a "straight talk from your best girlfriend" voice Glembocki shares the unspoken fears, the intensity of emotion and exhaustion, the difficulty of bonding with a demanding new infant, and the pure frustration that can come with motherhood—but that no one ever talks about, lest she be judged a bad mother. In the spirit of Anne Lamott’s Operating Instructions, Glembocki gives new moms a reality check on what to expect, leavened with equal parts compassion and humor.

$1 Bloomingdales makeup!
Just cashed in on a screamin' deal I read about on the BabyCenter Bargain Bulletin Board. I'm not a big makeup person, but even I couldn't resist stocking up at these prices. Here's the original post -- along with a link to the site:
Bloomingdales in launching a new line of makeup. Right now everything is a $1!!!
If you spend over $30 you can use the coupon code "shipit" and you get free shipping, but good luck spending over $30!

my evenings have been spent either with a glass of wine or a very cold vodka tonic on the patio. relaxing from my days. not that christine is working my fingers to the bone (yet). but recovering from some strange "firsts". in the middle of the first night at the condo, a vase fell off a shelf (scared the crap out of tracie & i - i kept "sleeping" trying to play it off as a dream, until tracie came in my room). sunday afternoon, after taking tracie to the airport, i found a small bird flitting around the condo - it took almost 4 hours to get the bird out, i think ... it still may be in there. monday night as i was getting the garbage can to take out from the garage - i saw a big ass spider (the body was at least 3 inches in diameter) -brown recluse, hobo spider, black widow? and last night on my way home from christine's i almost hit a coyote!!! the day will come when a scorpion will be crawling on my car and i will scream almost as loud as little miss taylor bowers when she misses her mommy!

on the road again, this time with a travel companion and my own car! i was so lucky to have tracie with me on the 2nd leg of the trip from colorado to phoenix. she drove the whole 6.5 hours!
why phoenix? my plan is to be here for about 3 months to help my friends christine & jeff bowers open a new franchise store called "super suppers". and jeff's parents - out of the kindess of their hearts - are letting me stay in their awesome condo at "troon north".

i spent the weekend with my best friend from pre-school this weekend in brecksville, ohio. jen, her husband (brent) and son (brogan) were so gracious to have me over for the weekend. brent the consummate bartender introduced me to his menu of drinks - pomagrante martini's, jolly ranchers, and his not-so-traditional vodka tonic.
brogan & i played lots of xbox and we went swimming at their neighbor's house. fun was had by all!
'dobbins landing' - known to those over the age of 30 as the 'public dock' was a place for cruising on friday and saturday night. just ask my girlfriends about riding my first truck (the jungle gym) and then later in the 'cara-van' around the dock.now they have built an observation tower, and are in the process of building both a convention center and hotel right on the bay. the hope that it will draw more people to the waterfront.

auntie cara went on a road trip to philly and on this trip she got to visit blair henninger (vicki glembocki's daughter). and on our adventure, we went swimming, ate cheesesteaks at BOTH pat's and geno's, enjoyed sushi, shopped at king of prussia mall and enjoyed downtown collingswood, nj.

i was very happy to come back to erie and work for my parents for a couple of weeks. i could attend a couple of weddings, enjoy the humidity, and make some money. on the 2nd day here, my dad asks me to stay for an entire month ... what could i say, but OK. so i am here until the 22nd of july and i am going to make the most of it. last night we went to beach 1 and saw One World Tribe play- every wednesday some band plays - it was packed.
