First Big Goal Met
Wednesday, December 28, 2011      1 comments

I've been moving along, slow and steady, with my SP program and seeing consistent progress either on the scale or how my clothes fit. This in itself is an accomplishment for me. I haven't been paying too much attention to where I am as far as my... Read more
Revenge is a Confession of Pain
Tuesday, December 27, 2011      1 comments

There is a Latin proverb that goes something like this: "revenge is a confession of pain"; it is very much true. I have had so many fantasies of revenge lately and it's only because I want her to hurt the way I hurt. I recognize that it is petty... Read more
It Hurts All Over Again :'(

Today's the Secret Santa gift exchange at work. I'm trying to be strong, but it's hard. Really hard. All I want to do is cry (and I have been for the past 10 minutes). I really miss having my husband here at work with me, especially today. This ... Read more

I couldn't get started on my Christmas shopping until I found out the amount of my end of year bonus. I finally got started Saturday night and was able to get about halfway done, but it's so exhausting this year. I agonize over every dollar and ... Read more

Just Gotta Get This Off My Chest
Monday, December 12, 2011      2 comments

I know I should be thankful for the things I do have, and I am, but right now I feel so angry and so hurt that I just can't bear to be positive about anything. Maybe if I write out all of the negative things weighing me down, I can begin to let ... Read more
My Heart Hurts

I found out that my husband's supervisor won't be reconsidering the decision to fire him. My heart hurts. I feel like I can't breathe. I can't stop crying. How can I help him? What can I do? What are we going to do????? I don't know where ... Read more
What am I Supposed to Do Now?
Wednesday, November 23, 2011      4 comments

My husband was fired today. We work at the same company, well used to I guess. I feel sick. His supervisor - who has known him for 11 years - thought she heard him call her a bit@h and said she was tired of being walked on. His side of the... Read more
My Kindergartner Lied - How Do I Handle?
Wednesday, November 16, 2011      4 comments

I'm struggling with an issue today and I'd like some perspective from other parents. My kids went to daycare on Monday and when I picked them up, my kindergartner said that his friend let him borrow his Nintendo DS. I didn't think anything of it... Read more
Tips for Cooking??
Wednesday, November 09, 2011      4 comments

I really want to cook more often...but I don't know how. I have a small kitchen and I'm just not a good cook. I can usually follow a recipe, but I don't want to waste time on foods I won't eat. Plus, I work full time and usually only have 30 min... Read more
That's Why They Call 'Em Accidents
Tuesday, September 13, 2011      2 comments

I got in a car accident this morning. I was turning left out of an apartment complex, an SUV was turning right into the complex and it looked like the second lane was clear so I went for it. It wasn't clear, though; the SUV was blocking the othe... Read more

Saying goodbye to my Grandpa is one of the hardest things I've EVER had to do...and I've lost my dad, my dad's dad and my mom's mom, but this was the hardest. My mom's dad was the wisest, most generous and genuine person that I have ever had the... Read more
Feeding My Emotions
Saturday, August 20, 2011      3 comments

It's been a hard 24 hours for me. It started with a nagging feeling...just feeling "blue" all day Friday. I ate okay for breakfast and lunch but that fell apart at dinner and didn't stop for 24 hours. But I'm not beating myself up over it like I... Read more
Annoyed Today
Wednesday, August 10, 2011      0 comments

Yesterday, I was sneezing and sniffling all day, which I attributed to seasonal allergies. But by evening I was miserable and knew it wasn't just allergies. Ugh! I hate getting colds...especially in the summer. I feel so run down and just want t... Read more
