To move or not to move, that is the question!

After looking at yet another sub-par apartment today that we had high hopes for, my husband suggested maybe what we need to do is just not consider moving right now. He thinks we should wait until the spring semester is over and I'm out of schoo... Read more
Why is it so hard to find a place to move to?
Tuesday, January 05, 2016      3 comments

All I want to do is find a reasonable place to live that is close to where my step-kids go to school and closer to where my husband works (he currently drives over 3.5 hours a day round trip)... you wouldn't think that would be too much to ask! ... Read more

Hello Spark friends! I wish I could say that I've been doing well at staying active and eating healthy in my absence, but that is the furthest thing from the truth! My weight is up, my energy is down, and I'm hoping Spark can get me back on trac... Read more

Here's hoping that August goes more smoothly than July has. I've been so stressed and frustrated with everything going on lately that it's sapping all of my energy. I was so excited about the move and Jon's new job, that having it all yanked out... Read more

I have drank Mt. Dew on a daily basis for the majority of the last 20 years. I don't like coffee, so a can of soda is generally how I've always started my day. Last week, my husband pointed out the numbers to me. Just by quitting my daily soda h... Read more

With so much going on in the next couple of months, I want to set down a plan of attack so that I don't get overwhelmed with everything! I will use this week to spend as much time with my husband as I can before I'm down to seeing him only ... Read more

Monday, June 29, 2015      2 comments

Well, we've gotten a few things nailed down now. My husband will be renting an in-law apartment from a former school-mate of his who works for the same company he's starting with, so that will be an inexpensive way for him to be right near work ... Read more

My husband has officially been hired for his new job! He starts July 6th! Now we have to decide how we're going to handle that, since his job is about 3 hours from mine. The ultimate goal is for me to get done and go back to school this fall, an... Read more

I've always been quite a klutz, but yesterday I outdid myself. I managed to catch the toe of my shoe about half-way down the stairs at work, and stumbled and flailed my way down the rest of them. The upside is that I didn't actually fall, the do... Read more

So far so good on my new rowing goal. I ended last week with 5000m in 33:30. Yesterday I accomplished the same distance in 32:18. Once I get to the point where I can do that in 30 minutes or less, I'll up the intensity to the next level and star... Read more

It was a good weekend, even though Friday night was freaking COLD! 40 degrees in late June is ridiculous! It was a nice, relaxing time at camp. None of the kids in the family were there, and only a small crew of the usual family members. I got s... Read more

Another week down! My husband and I are heading to camp when I get out of work tonight. I'll spend plenty of time on my feet and playing yard games does provide some exercise, the problem is camp food and 12 ounce curls tend to negate any exerci... Read more

Today is a big day for my family! My husband is going to find out whether or not he passes the physical for his new job. He has been dealing with shoulder pain ever since his deployment, but despite an xray, mri, and mri with contrast, the docto... Read more

It's a gray, dreary morning. I'm trying to stay awake and alert for my conference call/training coming up shortly. We're getting a new database management program for my department, so I have to know how it works in order to move everything over... Read more
