Looking to the new year with hope
Wednesday, January 06, 2016      3 comments

I'm not going to make resolutions for this year, I don't like the word "resolution". For some people setting resolutions is a great thing, but for me the word has the connotation of an ultimatum. I feel like if I have a setback once in my reso... Read more
Update - focusing on the positive
Thursday, December 31, 2015      6 comments

Wow - I haven't written a blog in ages. Mostly because I don't want to be the constant downer, no-one wants to read that. Obviously my year was not great, but there were some good things too so I'm going to try to keep this positive, but I'll ... Read more
18 years

18 years ago today I married my best friend and the love of my life. He doesn't feel that way about me anymore, and today is our last anniversary. By this time next year we will be divorced. I don't even know what I'm feeling today, beyond th... Read more
Better now
Saturday, May 09, 2015      4 comments

Last night wasn't a good night, but I feel better now. I went and got a shop vac this morning and cleaned up the basement. It doesn't look like there's much damage, I just have to wait for the carpet to finish drying on its own. I have fans r... Read more
Just griping
Friday, May 08, 2015      6 comments

We had a nasty storm here tonight. Severe thunderstorm, and the tornado sirens went off. Rumor has it that a tornado touch down just outside of town, but I haven't been able to confirm that so I don't know. What I do know is that there is ser... Read more
April goals
Saturday, March 28, 2015      2 comments

I know it’s a few days early, but I’m done with March, it’s been a bad month and I need to look to the new month and the newish start it offers. I didn’t really accomplish much in March. I’m still watching what I eat, but I’m still not tra... Read more
Happy birthday to me
Wednesday, March 18, 2015      5 comments

Thanks guys for the birthday wishes. It wasn't a bad birthday, just kind of a day of reflection and not being happy with where I am now. Plus I was physically exhausted and hurting. I'm not usually a big birthday person (for other people yes,... Read more
On to March
Friday, March 06, 2015      4 comments

This is going to be a month of rebuilding and re-evaluating for me. How will I afford the things my son and I need? How will I make the house seem like a home again? How will I maintain a positive relationship and share my son? W... Read more
Setting things straight
Friday, February 27, 2015      6 comments

I'm not really feeling like blogging, but after re-reading some of my recent posts and comments, I feel like I need to set some things straight. I am so very sad. So very broken. I don't know how to move on from here, and I feel like the ... Read more
Bad day - but not because it's Friday the 13th
Friday, February 13, 2015      9 comments

I'm not a superstitious person, but this Friday the 13th is certainly going to be ugly. Today's the day that we have set aside to split all the finances. He is off on Fridays and I took a personal day. Our paychecks coincide today (he gets pa... Read more
Crazy busy week
Saturday, February 07, 2015      3 comments

I can't say it was an awful week, but it sure was a busy one. Monday and Wednesday I had conferences until 7, Tuesday the little guy had science fair that seemed like it took forever. Thursday there was a fund-raising dinner at the school so w... Read more

Why is it I can get through the day and be strong and mostly ok, but as soon as the sun sets I'm just an absolute wreck? Right now as I sit here I feel like I can maybe do this, but I know that tonight I'll be certain that I can't. I app... Read more
another week
Sunday, January 25, 2015      5 comments

Last week I wrote about how poorly I did the first week of the challenge, and listed the things I would work on to be better in week two. I did manage to follow through with some of those things. I tracked every day (well, from Tuesday o... Read more

So, at midnight last night hubby informed me that when we get our tax return he is moving out. He'd been at band practice (or said that's where he was, I think he was out somewhere getting his courage up) and then came home and hung out in his ... Read more
Week 2
Saturday, January 17, 2015      4 comments

The first week of the winter challenge did not go well. I didn't meet even my low bar goals for the week. I had planned to walk on the school track during my planning period because once I'm home in the evening it's very challenging to g... Read more
