Today was the first day I did not lug my "frenemy" to work with me. It's liberating. But it's also bittersweet. My frenemy, you see, is my breast pump. Danielle turned 1 earlier this month (more on that in a future post), and has mostly transitioned to cow's milk. I was committed to the idea of breastfeeding, but I honestly didn't know how long I could sustain it after returning to a full-time job after maternity leave. And I honestly didn't anticipate the enormity of the emotional component of nursing.

I'M A BASEMENT person. My things belong in a basement. A weight bench, rarely used but thought-of often; stained tattered clothes, long overdue for the thrift shop; empty containers, cans, bottles, milk cartons, 150 pairs of running shoes filled with extra breathing holes from excessive use, but still retaining one last run; fill my personal hideaway. This spidery, dusty, underground cavern gives me more delight than any walnut-lined study.BUT, water likes to enter my stronghold. Pure (aside from acid rain)

Every working breastfeeding mother has had it happen at least once: You're on a break, ready to pump, when you discover you forgot a crucial piece of equipment.  Maybe it's a valve, a piece of tubing or a storage bag. You find yourself wondering if you can store milk in a water bottle or use butter as a nipple cream because there's no time to run home.  What can you do? Workers at Johns Hopkins Hospital can now purchase breastfeeding equipment from a vending machine -- believed to be the first of its kind.

The Fourth of July weekend is traditionally one of the busiest travel times of the year, and it's a safe bet that a lot of Marylanders will hit the roads to Ocean City and beyond. As often happens when mid-summer vacations beckon, gas prices are up and motorists may be tempted to fume about the state's fuel taxes, which increased on July 1. They shouldn't. If anyone wants to find a culprit for rising gasoline prices, they should look to Iraq and other suppliers and not Annapolis.

Frosh of Montgomery County — considered Cardin's main opposition in Tuesday's Democratic primary — is also benefiting from outside spending.

Walter G. Amprey was driving his wife, Andrea, home from a restaurant one night last December when he turned onto an on-ramp for the Baltimore Beltway. A sudden dizziness overcame him. He blacked out. The family SUV ran off the road and rolled into a tree. The pair survived, but Amprey had suffered severe heart failure. It would take a team of surgeons at the University of Maryland Medical Center - and a new operating-room technique - to give him his best chance for a full and rapid recovery.

This is how bad gas prices are now: I just saw a guy with a polo shirt, khaki pants and penny loafers at an intersection holding a sign that said: "Will work for regular unleaded." OK, fine, that's not true. But it could happen. And the way things are going, I'll probably be the guy holding the sign. You'll recognize me because I'll also be waving a stack of college tuition bills in one hand. And if the windbags in Annapolis don't come through, and we get hit with a 72 percent rate increase from BGE, you might see me waving that bill, too. I know, I know ... you have your own problems.

Eight hundred thousand gallons of raw sewage poured into Gunpowder Falls Sunday night after a pumping station in the Perry Hall area unexpectedly lost power, Baltimore County reported Monday. A Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. crew doing planned maintenance work inadvertently cut power to the sewage pumping station at the end of Dundawan Road about 11:40 p.m., according to David Fidler, spokesman for the county's Department of Public Works. Sewage overflowed from the station into the river nearby for a little more than two hours until BGE crews restored power, Fidler said in an email.
