I have a kickin' case of heartburn and can't sleep. I woke up feeling like my tongue and throat were swelling up. Weird right? So I googled side effects of my new meds and fought back the urge to call 911. Seriously people, don't try to self diagnose via the internet because it will scare... Continue Reading →
Thank you for sending me this. However, I am in fact, NOT "bored with my routine", as you so helpfully suggested. You see, I no longer have a routine, unless you count lots of sleeping, cupcakes, and mentally tripping the senders of these relentless running emails as they walk down stairs. So by all means,...

Tomorrow is my last day in Boston. I really like this town but I'm ready to see my family. The time away has been good for me though, on both a personal level and career wise. I'm not quite as buried in mental mire as before. I guess a good description for how I'm feeling... Continue Reading →
You know you are fresh out of clever titles for posts when you resort to using the day of the week. Oh well. If yesterday was all mine, today was definitely all kiddo's. Morning bubble bath followed by dance class #3. Fabulous time, the kid is really into it. Then to the park across the... Continue Reading →
Today was nice. We had our first parent-teacher conference ever. Who knew they do those for day care? Turns out, my kid is smart, sweet and socially adept. As if I didn't already know that but its nice to hear it confirmed by an outside party. Then I picked up The Mayor and we headed... Continue Reading →
Verdict: gained 10 pounds in a matter of weeks, change in meds, follow-up visit in a month, encouraged to seek therapy. Hello mid-life crisis. The next one that comes around I'm just going to buy a red sports car and be done with it. It sucks to know that the real you is so broken... Continue Reading →
That title makes me think of the kid's show/movie, Kung Fu Panda, which we are big fans of in our house. Of all the kiddie shows out there, that one cracks me up and I love it even more than my offspring. Yes, we let our 3.5 year old watch that show. I know I... Continue Reading →
I've written about five posts here and deleted them all. I have lost my blogging love I think.
I didn't want my picture taken because I was going to cry. I didn't know why I was going to cry, but I knew that if anybody spoke to me or looked at me too closely the tears would fly out of my eyes and the sobs would fly out of my throat and I'd cry for a week. I could feel the tears brimming and sloshing in me like water in a glass that is unsteady and too full. ~Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
Out of boot unless in pain. Getting temp carbon fiber shank plate and permanent orthotics (inserts). Get plate on Thursday. No running for at least a month. Back to doc in month. The end.
Seriously. I have been trying to articulate this without sounding like a horrible mother for oh, about 3 years now. Mrs. Melton nailed my feelings on it. Don't Carpe Diem
Today has been interesting and its supposed to get more so later this afternoon and tonight. Impending storms, tornadoes, crazy winds, flooding...Armageddon basically, if you listen to the Weather Channel. Not that I'm not taking it very seriously. We don't play when it comes to tornadoes down here. I have our "safe room" ready (although... Continue Reading →
