Home with Little Sammy
I picked Little Sammy up from the hospital this morning. I cried when they brought him to me. I didn't know you could love a dog so much. He did really well during the surgery, and he's surprisingly alert this morning. He keeps wobbling arou... Read more
I'm Quitting My Voice Lessons
Today was the day that I would pay for my next four sessions. I won't be doing that. I'm a little nervous to tell her.
It's not that I'm not getting anything out of it or that I hate it. I really enjoy my voice lessons. But...

Too Young to Be So Tired
I realized something today.
My Wanderlust is gone.
Years ago, I traipsed around Europe...twice. I wanted to see every continent before I died. I fell in love with a Latino and asked him to take me to every country in South America. ... Read more

But I don't know what to do with myself. Here are my ideas:
1. Watch a ton o... Read more
On a Bender
Okay, so since I wrote my last blog, I've been eating like a maniac. I've so completely overeaten this week, I can't even believe it. How do I stop this? I don't even know. I go to bed at night saying, tomorrow will be better, and I wake up ... Read more

One bottle of pop...
Two nights ago, when I was getting ready to go to bed, I suddenly realized that I had only had one soda all day. Normally, I drink anywhere from 3-6. So I tried the same thing yesterday. And I'm working on today, so we'll see, though my husba... Read more
I don't know what to write about.
I've started this blog post four times already, but everything has seemed too banal to even write down, much less subject anyone else to having to read. But, since I want my five points, I'll put down some... Read more
Distracted by Jelly Beans
For some reason, while I was sitting at Jackson Hewitt this afternoon, working on taxes, I really wanted jelly beans. So I went next door to the grocery store and got some. I didn't go out of control with them, probably ate 2 servings, and now... Read more
Failed the Talk Test
When I was at the gym, riding my bike, reading my book, I got a call. It was my sister! We talked for a few minutes, and at one point, she asked where I was. That's when I realized that I could not possibly have been working out hard enough, ... Read more
I think I've said this in my main SparkPage: I've been "working on" quitting smoking for about seven years.
One of my more recent "work on"s was with a therapist. I wish I could say "addiction specialist," but not only did I really dislik... Read more

Trying to Climb Out of a Hole and Sliding Back In
Meal planning. It's driving me insane.
I don't really know what to do. For 5% Challenge, I had decided I was going to use Spark meal plans, but then, when I tried to organize them, I realized they kind of blow. I'm sure they're good for ... Read more
