It's been a year since this post, www.sparkpeople.com/mypa ge_public_journal_individu al.asp?blog_id=5562089 so I thought I would reflect on my year... And say that I am ready to get back to taking care of myself. For real... Read more
I'm still feeling like myself! AND I'm over the cold! My aunt is in town, so I'm going to have my family over tonight for dinner.

So far I'm feeling worse. Working with my support team (my therapist, dr., and dr's nurse) to figure it out. Haven't made a lot of strides this week... but I'm not giving up! I'm still here, and I'm still making a commitment to a healthier lif... Read more
! Happy Friday the 13th! I was looking at some past entries, and decided I like my weekly "take stock of the good, the bad, and the plan". So I'm going to start it up again. Here's this week's installment:
I have been struggling since the babies have been born. I've been moody, we've been going through a lot of changes as a family (new house, new daycare, closer to grandparents which is a blessing and a curse...). I started seeing a therapist, I... Read more
