On the couch! Help! I haven't been sleeping well because of the loss of my animals, so I broke down and bought some over the counter sleeping pills. They worked great. A little too great. And, because I am so observant, I bought MAXIMUM STRENGTH... Read more
A little bit of gratitude amongst the grief
I was going to write a tribute to Bella, my sweet 2 year old tabby who was killed by our dogs this week (we also got rid of the dogs because of it, so it's been a rough, rough week). I don't think I can do it yet. I just need one full day where... Read more
I had started a gratitude list yesterday, then received a blood-boiling phone call from my hubby, erased the gratitude, and complained instead. So here it is, let's start the week out the right way:
Things to be grateful for:
1) Althou... Read more
Anyone want some chili?
Because I have a whole pot of it. For just me to eat. Because DH has to wait until 5:30 to call and say "Hey, plans changed, I'm eating at my friends."
This, of course, totally sent me into tears. I know it shouldn't have. Normally it woul... Read more
Thank you for pissing me off
Hmm... funny title after I discovered that my dog, Tyson, has been marking the end of our bed after we had thought it was Ava, our recently adopted pooch. I went through the whole mess of scheduling a vet appt for her, taking her and a pee sampl... Read more
Do they have any books specifically on rescued or abused/neglected dogs? If so, I would like to buy it IMMEDIATELY.
What I've learned from my two 'rescue' dogs is that the majority of internet articles, magazine clippings, and library books... Read more
A little better...
OK, so after having a case of the lazies all week, I think I am SLOWLY getting back on track. I didn't go to the gym yesterday because the weather here is awful (-8 degrees and it snowed last night, making for icy, icy roads), but I did do some ... Read more
I want nothing more than to hibernate right now.
After gaining a few pounds following the holidays (which I still can't bear to track yet), I had all of these optimistic thoughts about turning it around, and at least its the least amount of... Read more
You would think that, being the weekend, I would be distraught about getting 8-12" of snow. Fear not, I am completely looking forward to being in PJ's all day. In fact, I am so lazy today, I have been up almost 2 hours and haven't brushed my tee... Read more
What the heck. Yesterday I wake up, get ready for work, and they call at the last minute to say we are on a 2 hour delay. I napped anyways, trying to sleep my headache away.
5:20 am this morning. The phone rings. We are on a 2 hour delay. I... Read more
This is my last day off before I return to work. I think that pretty much says it all.
As a result, I have been caught in this mental battle since I awoke this morning at 7:30. I switch back and forth between the negative (I DON'T WANNA go ... Read more
I came home yesterday from the movies, and my kitchen was a distaster area. My folks bought us a dishwasher for Christmas, and my husband is installing it. He is not a tidy guy in general, particularly when fixing things. And I can't stand my k... Read more
Happy New Year
What else would I title a blog post written on Jan 1? I don't really have any cohesive thoughts today. Although not hungover, I am indeed tired from staying up later than usual and my black lab demanding that I wake up at 8am. Who's in charge he... Read more
It's been a while since I've written a gratitude list, so this is overdue.
1) I have been given the OK to attend the All Ohio Counselors Conference. It is a great chance to improve my professional skills and get away for a couple of days.

End of plateau?
Gosh, I hope so!! I haven't lost any weight since July and I'm (hopefully) 3months away from going off BC so we can try for a child. I just want to get down to that goal weight before I'm pregnant. I've read about getting through plateau's, but ... Read more
