Okay, so I may have said I wasn’t going to post until the new year. But…I’ve discovered that, in my current sleep deprived state, one of the things that helps to keep me sane is writing. So I’ll probably be blogging more than I had originally thought.
I’m likely not going to be posting every week, but I will be posting every now and again. (Hopefully what I write actually makes sense.)
Apocalypse Lesson: We all need something to help keep us grounded (and hopefully sane), regardless of how busy or not busy our lives are. This won’t change in the apocalypse; if anything, we’ll need that one sanity keeping activity even more after life as we know it has ended.
We should all figure out what those activities are when we can, before the world, you know, goes to shit. (Just a thought.)
Here’s your PSA for the week…
This was announced last week, but in case you missed it, Angelcare Monitors is doing a voluntary recall of its movement and sound monitors. There have been reported deaths in the U.S. of babies being strangled by the cord that runs from the sensor pad to the nursery unit. The company is issuing a rigid cord cover kit to correct this issue. Kits can be ordered via the Angelcare website (do not go to any retail locations).
Note that the recall only affects monitors with the sensor pad. If you have the sound-only monitor, the recall does not affect you.
The models affected by the recall are:
I know this is old, but seriously I cannot stop laughing at this.
You may have noticed that I haven’t posted in a couple of weeks. I apologize for not saying anything sooner, but I likely will not be posting until the new year. I’m currently recovering from a C-section, and the recovery is a long and slow process. With my limited mobility and lack of sleep stemming from having a newborn in the house (in addition to two very active children), I have a lot less time to blog than I used to.
As such, I will be taking a hiatus while I recover, so I will most likely be away until the new year.
So Happy American Thanksgiving, Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Blessed Yule, Happy New Year, and Happy <insert holiday here>!
Last year, I wrote about having a baby in the post-apocalypse. I had all sorts of tips for incubating a tiny human after the world’s gone to hell in a dingy, terrifying, possibly zombie-laden handbasket.
I’m revisiting that post today. Basically, I’d like to add one final tip when being pregnant in the post-apocalypse:
Don’t do it.
Why? Because you will probably die. (In a cheery, post-apocalyptic way, of course.)
