We moved. It was a tremendous project, but now it's done, and here we are. My mother has cancer. It's small and very aggresive, and she's starting chemo very soon. I can do nothing. I can't even travel to see her or hang with her or anythi... Read more

I haven't articulated my goals for the new year very well, but I did decide that starting January 1st, I would cut meat, dairy and sugar. Today is January 2nd, and I broke that streak with the mocha latte I had after dinner tonight: sugar and da... Read more

I made the second step. Actually, I've made the third and fourth too, despite stumblings between steps two and three. That didn't make any sense, did it? No, it did not. See, I resolved this past week to get back on the wagon, made a plan... Read more

Still working on that second step. Blaming my hormones more than my writing, which is something new and different. *snort* Someday, I swear it, if only to myself. Someday I'm going to do this right.... Read more

I'm readying myself to workout in the morning. To be honest, I hate the anticipation, the preparation. I can set out my shoes and headphones, fill my water bottle and make sur... Read more

I need a fresh start, the kind that feels like a palate cleansing of the soul. I've let myself get so far astray, under the blanket-excuse of this neverending story, tha... Read more

This is less a blog and more of a bragging. I'm not even sure it's bragging. Hmm... It's just that yesterday when I stepped on the scale, the number read-out offered up a nice 164.2, and I don't have anyone that I can call to tell this who ... Read more

Though I don't believe anyone is checking this blog at this point, I want to leave an update on yesterday's post: My big boy had his appointment and the doctor declared him wonderfully healthy. His glucose levels are fine, as are iron and c... Read more

Maybe it's nothing. That's what we're hoping/ praying/ whistling in the dark for. Tomorrow I'm taking my older son -- eight years old, by the way -- for a check up and, h... Read more

I have been MIA for the last-- oh, look at that -- three months. Three full months. This is noteworthy. Why is this noteworthy? Because I've been writing. Really, h... Read more

This is only a quick note for a quick measure, as it's the beginning of the month, and I was curious how I fared by completely abandoning all pretense of exercise for the last... Read more

I know it's been months since I've posted measurements, but I had an inkling that the time had come again to bite the bullet, wrap the tape measure around my squishy body and ... Read more
