I just want to relay a brief story about something that happened to me this weekend that I really think is indicative of a larger problem.
Awesome Husband and I went to a favorite local restaurant a little after noon to have a late breakfas... Read more
Grey clouds pouring tears
All my thoughts are cliches
Tomorrow is a better day
This, too, shall pass
A friend in need....
Words buzz and swarm
but do not heal.
Loving arms hold and console
but do not solve.

Some of these are a work in progress. Many I don't even think about anymore.
1. Telling my loved ones that I love them at every opportunity. Hanging up the phone. Leaving their house. Saying goodnight. All. The. Time.
2. Cooking meals at ... Read more
I actually journalled this as well, including the picture, in an effort to force myself to be positive and forgiving and proud of my own accomplishments. (Ran my first 5k today on the treadmill with only TWO walking breaks!)
Well folks, time to check in and update the ol' goals.
Some of you may have checked out my Goals pinboard on Pinterest. Making it was the right thing to do because I've already accomplished one goal! Now I just have to make sure I have the ... Read more
This morning Awesome Husband and I moaned and groaned our way out of bed, were super late for the gym, and neither of us wanted to do Kris Gethin's leg routine. Not only are his routines out of control difficult, they primarily use machines and ... Read more
1. Puppies. My own or others. Those little wiggly bums and round tummies just make me light up inside.
2. A quilt fresh out of the dryer.
3. The smell of garlic frying.
4. Doctor Who
5. Quoting movies back and forth with frie... Read more
The title is heavy.
I promise the following will not be.
I have my period. This is not an admission I make with shame or embarrassment. If you remember a blog many blogs ago (in a galaxy far far away), I wrote that you will never see ... Read more
Just a quick weekend update!
My little bro stayed over Friday night into Saturday. We figured it was going to snow so we slept in only to wake up to..........no snow!! So we headed out for breakfast (I got a truly magnificent egg white/one ... Read more
Oh man. That title.
Awesome Husband bought me a journal this year for anniversary. He buys me one every year. And my mom buys me one every time she's anywhere.
See, I have this thing about journals. I keep them everywhere. I have one i... Read more
Today's action plan!! (You have to imagine me saying that in my Superman voice)
Eat food. Not too much. Track it. Or not. Gauge emotional health and hunger cues.
Work out. Work out a lot. Weights in the morni... Read more
Another weekend down and new week begun. I'm having one of those mornings where my tummy feels like I ate batteries.
It's amazing how much Whole30 has affected me. On Saturday night I spent time with a friend and ate lasagna since that was... Read more
I had a teacher in high school named Mr. Morrill. To say that Mr. Morrill was the finest teacher I ever had the privilege to be taught by is a massive understatement. The man helped me to develop and deepen the critical mind I'd like to think th... Read more
There aren't enough hours in the day.
I'm so exhausted after work.
With the kids, dinner, house work, and my job, I barely have time to breathe!
My back is absolutely killing me today.
My show is on.
I just could not ge... Read more
I am kind of a lazy person. Well maybe not lazy so much as I get easily overwhelmed. I let my house get nasty, really and truly dirty and cluttered, and then I don't know where to start. So I just sit on the couch, instead, and feel bad about it... Read more
