So....the other day my husband ... Read more
A Day in the Life
Today I'm about up to my ears with STUFF. I have a job that took me forever to finish (and in case you guys don't know what I do, I basically clean up transcripts for court reporters), and I sat here on my butt for about 4 hours this morning do... Read more
Sad news this morning
Well, I was supposed to go to a new group meeting for brunch that was starting up this morning called, "Lonely Hearts Club" for women who are sending kids off to college. This group is starting up due to so many women in our church going throu... Read more
This morning's craziness!
This morning was interesting. As is expected, I had a hard time getting to bed and then getting to sleep last night....typical when David's gone. The lingering cough that flairs up at night didn't help a whole lot! I kept remembering the fron... Read more
It's nippy here and you can tell fall is trying to ease it's way into our lives! I actually have enjoyed it, and Lucy and I enjoyed a nice breezy walk earlier today!

Well, today started off with more scratchy throat and headachiness. I'm so ready to just FEEL BETTER! I took the last of the Z-pack at breakfast and I hope tomorrow I'll feel myself again. I'm tempted to go back to the doctor if I don't, due ... Read more
So much going on!
There's work that's not getting done becuase I can't get refocused! Thankfully, eating is on track this week so far. The challenge is helping me loads to keep motivated. I think posting my caloric daily intake helps me a lot, plus making sure... Read more
Last day of school
Well, our camping trip was a success! We arrived Thursday afternoon when things were starting to cool down. We found a nice, shady camping spot and set up our tent. We were so tired after finally getting everything set up that we just laid on... Read more
My 21st anniversary
Today is my anniversary and we're going camping! David and I have gotten almost everything together. The only thing I'm worried about today is the dog. She has been acting strangely and lying in her crate when it's not night time (very odd) a... Read more
a new day
Well, it's Thursday and this has been a pretty hard week for me. Last night I had a sort of meltdown that kept on giving through this morning. I had a talk with God and He has shown me that I need to perservere through this tough time. I know... Read more
