Relationships are HARD.
So this will probably be long. Here's the short version: Being stuck in a valley for a season that drags on longer than anyone is comfortable with turns some people into unpleasant versions of themselves. And I'm not talking about me.

Yup, retaining water!
Those 8 lbs? They're baaack... and they brought a couple of friends. Not surprising really, considering ALL.THE.THINGS. I ate on Superbowl Sunday and all the SALT in all the things... which I didn't even bother logging, because, really.

Lost 6 lbs since Thursday!? And new pain meds suck. :(
I dunno. Weirdest thing. I'm not going to hold my breath that they're gone for good, seems like a lot for no good reason when I check my food and water and sleep history, not much has changed.
Saw the pain specialist yesterday, and it went... Read more
Lost 1.2 lbs...
to be exact, and hey, so they're the 1.2 I put on last week, I'll still call it good.
Also getting a much shorter haircut today, I'll post some before and after pics. I do eventually want to grow it out again, but it's just too much to mana... Read more
Today was a better day.
My therapy session was canceled today due to my therapist getting a flat tire, but we'll do a double session tomorrow, so we'll work it out.
In other news, we met with our Senior Pastor tonight to talk through some challenges we've been hav... Read more
Can I PLEASE have a "do-over" of the past three years?!
So this past summer, my friend Bob asked me to work for him as an office manager to run his phones, do his books, make all his appointments, manage all the billing and network with his accountant for payroll etc (this seemed like it would be awe... Read more
So my daughter is my PT caregiver 3 days/week, and my hubby works from home 3 days/week, so they generally overlap a day on Mondays, which allows both of them to get a lot more done.

What the HECK happened to HER!?
Jalapenos, that's what.
This post is so long overdue. Let's see. When last we met our intrepid heroine, she was working like a crazy person to pay for her daughter's wedding at a CPA firm. The CPA firm got sold, and she started working... Read more
Where the heck has she BEEN?
I've been crazy. We bought a house last fall. There's blog posts in here back there about the whole deal, mainly, and then it was DONE, and we were MOVING, and it got too crazy to keep up with my life, much less report on it and record what I ... Read more
OK, so it's been awhile since I posted any kind of milestone or progress report regarding my weight loss. It occurred to me today that this is Labor Day weekend, and therefore, this weekend marks the 1 year anniversary of the Low-Carb Plan. In v... Read more
Is officially official and stuff. Sorta.
So we applied for the mortgage today, locked in the rate, which, at 4.75% is better than it could have been. With an FHA mortgage, we're locked into private mortgage insurance for the lifetime of the loan, so we will need to save our pennies an... Read more
What a lovely wedding
And I am SO glad that it's over. Because I've had my wedding cake gumpaste flower stuff out all over the dining room table for two weeks, and I'm sick of looking at it. My hands are cramping from kneading fondant and rolling stuff, and I'm jus... Read more
OK, it's a doozy...

Got woken up by a phone call from a lawyer today...
Not generally on my list of favorite ways to start the day. HOWEVER, this one was calling to tell me that all my paperwork was in order and that they're cutting my inheritance check today or tomorrow and it will be sent via courier!
This, ... Read more

Apparently, there's not QUITE enough going on in my life at the moment. So we're going to buy a house, as soon as it is feasible and possible and manageable to do so. Which, in a delightfully BIZARRE way, I'm very excited about, because I've N... Read more
