So I've been suffering from severe lack of motivation this week.
It's not really surprising; those of you who follo wmy blog know that last week was stressful, exhausting, and not at all fun. I'm resting to recuperate from that, and I refu... Read more
One more day
Husband's coming home tomorrow morning.
That is GOOD.
I'm at the end of my metaphorical rope here. I'm just out of energy, out of strength, out of patience.
I'm turning what energy I have to the dining room project. It's a big... Read more
So completely exhausted
I'm so wiped out right now I can barely stay conscious, so it's likely that I won't, for long. Suffice it to say that today was MUCH better than yesterday.
I left the house at 10 AM. I didn't get BACK until 9 PM!
I went to a meeting... Read more
I'm done with today.
Today has officially been one of the worst days I've had in a long time. I even called my aunt to lament my day.
It started off kinda sucky; I didn't get much sleep last night, and I was down in the doldrums, lonely, and a bit depressed. I... Read more
Ow, ow, OW!
Well, yesterday at boot camp, I really busted my butt. I did some serious full-body lifting, kettlebells, squats, squat jumps, and more fun stuff at the direction of the tr... Read more
Retraining the stress response
Today, my family careened headlong into another family crisis.
I found myself trying to turn to old standbys to deal with stress, and made a conscious effort to redire... Read more
A glimmer of hope
Well, both good news and bad. My husband went to the hospital this morning, and they're keeping him for a few days while they adjust to his meds. So it's girls only at the Dragon house this week. This sucks, because well, I get to play single mo... Read more
It been a rough week for the Dragon family. In addition to my husband's crippling depression, my youngest has had a sinus infection (complete with an impetigo outbreak). And tonight, my old man kitty (Noodles, my "baby" for ten years now) came ... Read more
Depression is a Pain
Hmm. I've seen this title before.
This time, it's not even *mine*.
The only thing worse that dealing with depression is dealing with someone else's.
This SUCKS.... Read more
My 6 year old's salad!
As I promised yesterday, I've taken pictures of the salad my daughter came up with. As it turns out, there were a LOT of pictures; rather than upload all of them here (which takes FOREVER) I'll upload just one for you as a teaser, and redirect y... Read more
From the mouths of babes
Today my six year old had a FANTASTIC idea for a dish. I got a spiral slicer a while back, and I've throughly enjoyed it. It's a great alternative to (or enhancement for) pasta. Run a freshly peeled zucchini through it, and you have a light, fil... Read more
Crazy work day
Make that a crazy work week. Been up to my eyeballs. Also did 6 loads of laundry and cooked dinner.
Have had no time to breathe.
Have been writing, though. That feels good.
Peace out.... Read more
It's been a while since I started this journey. It's been a slow journey, one that is on a par with the slowest loser. One year, 23 pounds. (Was 25, but I gained them back.)
I have to remind myself of why I'm on this journey, though.

When self control is out of control
So the biggest problem I have is eating. I'm good at exercising; I LIKE to exercise! Just now, for example, rather than give in to the fridge-rooting snack attack, I went for ... Read more
I don't like Saturdays
I've decided I don't like Saturdays. I guess that means that I'm not a kid anymore, huh? Used to be my favorite day of the week!
For starters, the girls are home from school, which means they're up my butt all day, and bored out of their ... Read more
