Ringworm. I hates you.

Friday, August 17, 2012      13 comments

I've been suffering from ringworm for about TWO MONTHS now. It's to the point where I've just about given up. We're fairly sure the initial infection came from my cat; The whole family had it, but I had it the worst. At its peak, I had about 8 m... Read more

I haven't lost as much as I thought I had

Thursday, August 16, 2012      9 comments

Went back to boot camp again today. I'm still sore from Tuesday, but not enough to warrant skipping class. I was pleasantly surprised with myself. I jogged more than I thought I was capable of, and was able to keep a steady pace through most of... Read more

Just who is this crazy redhead, anyway?

I've added a bunch of new Sparkfriends lately, and some of you may or may not know me; Most people find me through my posts in the forum. You can read my Sparkpage, and get a pretty good overview, but who am I, really? Obviously, I'm... Read more

Settling into our new routine... finally.

Day two of back-to-school is already proving to be better, although my husband is proving to be a bigger obstacle than I had anticipated. See, as some of you already know, he's being forced to wean off his meds. This has all kinds of unple... Read more

First day of school: Mommy cut loose.

Monday, August 13, 2012      8 comments

Went a little overboard. The girls went to school today, and Papa and I had the whole house to ourselves for the first time in six years. Soooo we went out to eat. Three times. LOL. Burger King for breakfast. Sonny's BBQ for lunch. Chines... Read more

Vroom vroom, everybody!

I found my helmet! So today I went for a ride, and it was incredible. The weather was spectacular, nice and cool at 85 with a cool breeze. I rode for about an hour, and in the process, discovered a writing partner! See, I've lived in this ... Read more

Rain, rain, go away...

Actually, don't. Stay. We need you! It's been so nice to have afternoon thunderstorms, even though they've been interfering with my ability to ride my bike. Another thing interfering with my bike rides: I can't find my helmet! I'm not comf... Read more

Living in poverty

Friday, August 10, 2012      14 comments

This isn't exactly a secret, though I don't really talk about it a lot. There's a lot of prejudice against the poor, especially those of us who aren't lucky enough to be able to support themselves 100%. You get so much slack from people over ev... Read more

What IS it with men named Chris?

Thursday, August 09, 2012      9 comments

I just realized a weird bit of syncronicity in my life. Men named Chris for some reason have a profound, life-changing effect on my life. No, my husband is not a Chris. :) But I mean this in a more indirect, people-named-Chris keep doing ... Read more

School's about to start

Wednesday, August 08, 2012      7 comments

Feeling a little sad, but very happy. Next Monday, school starts, and my big girl starts 1st grade, and my baby starts pre-k. I'm extra thrilled that my youngest has the same preschool teacher as my oldest did. She is an amazing lady, and really... Read more

Don't talk to yourself that way!

Words are POWERFUL. "Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words will never hurt me." If I could find the person who came up with that nonsense, I'd go back in time and assassinate them. Those 13 words are the most damaging, dest... Read more

Exercise makes my whole day better.

Monday, August 06, 2012      10 comments

Getting to the gym for a workout sets me up for a successful day from right in the beginning. It gets me up early so I'm available to do the things I need to do. I'm a night owl by nature, and am happiest staying up until 3 AM and sleeping... Read more

So it's definitely partly hormonal

Sunday, August 05, 2012      5 comments

I think I'm being extra icky and bloaty lately not just because of the fast food overdose (although that's definitely a HUGE part of it) but I suspect I'm around my "time of the month." I don't really have a period per se; I have an IUD, so I h... Read more

I'm done with fast food.

Saturday, August 04, 2012      13 comments

Over the past few months, I've gotten to where I don't eat too much fast food. It's not something I crave, and I've never really been a big fan. Today, though, I really, really wanted some Arby's. I like Arby's generally; as far as fast fo... Read more

August the First: Reboot

Wednesday, August 01, 2012      11 comments

So, it's no secret that this entire summer has kinda sucked for me. I've been terribly inconsistent with my workouts, and in fact, haven't been more than once a week in two months. Very uncool. Part of it is that without the motivation of having... Read more
