This past week was rough. My little guy (my six year old) was sick, literally all week. He didn't go to school but one day and got sick at school in the trash can. Poor guy. Needless to say, I was homebound all week and didn't see the light ... Read more

So this week has been rough. Rough. My little guy got sick on Sunday and took a nose dive from there. I ended up at urgent care with him Monday evening as his fever spiked at 103.7. It scared me a bit, to say the least. He has slowly mended... Read more

Monday, March 26, 2012      6 comments

I had to take a step back this weekend. I didn't log into Spark. I didn't track in my Fitbook. I didn't workout. Not because I couldn't or didn't want to, but rather because I just needed a break. A time to self-evaluate a few things. Reas... Read more

Learning to Fly
Saturday, March 10, 2012      6 comments

When a bird learns to fly, it takes time, work, perseverance and patience. They don't just instantly wake up knowing how. They have to work at it. I feel like that. More so now than ever. With where I am here and now. Like a bird learn... Read more
