sitting on the edge of the sandbox, biting my tongue

Six years ago when I was engaged and surfed the net, I got to stare at the banners leading to The Knot and Crate and Barrel.  When I got pregnant,  the banners advertised Babycenter and Web MD.  Once my baby was born, I was enticed to visit  Imagine my surprise when two days ago I spotted several web ads for divorce lawyers.

I am pretty much the only person using my computer.  Sure, my son gets to bang on the keys, but that’s when computer is locked.  My daughter watches animation on youtube twice a week, but  it’s all kids’ stuff.  I love my husband, and have not been vising divorce websites and, until this very post, typing the word “divorce” anywhere.  So what is about a stay at home mom who visits political and parenting blogs and occasionally shops at that alerted the gods of the internet to possibility that she might need services of a divorce attorney?

The only explanation I have is visiting blog entries and news pages about a certain Congressman from New York, entering his name in search engines and writing two posts about him.



  1. My husband constantly gets banner ads and e-mails offering him Russian brides. I want to write back, “No, thank you, he already has one.”

  2. Wow that is scary. A good spyware/keylogger program might be a good idea unless your computer is run by the Psychic Friends Network.
