I’m super lucky to have some fabulous friends. This weekend I drove to Cincinnati to meet Nora for a mini weekend getaway. We got a room close to the University and vegged out and had girly time. We ate a lot of junk and laughed a ton. Sometimes a girl’s just gotta get away. And in keeping with my theme of bursting into uncannily appropriate … Continue reading roadtrippin’
A dear friend sent this article to me and I wanted to share. I cried and sniffled through it because that’s how I roll. But more than just tear-inducing, I found it to be succinct, powerful, and more than a little refreshing. Finding God in a Little White Pill It occurred to me that I’ve been posting a lot about depression and sadness and yada … Continue reading my next post will be happy, I promise
So, I’m like the poster child for testing new antidepressants. Bah. I went to the doctor today about some issues with my current ones so we are switching again. Bah. It’s not as bad as it sounds I guess. This is only my 4th kind over many years. That’s not too awful right? Bah. Do you read those informational papers that come with all medications? … Continue reading check your ambition at the door
…of the head. Therapy of the mental sort continues once or twice a month. I just got back from today’s session. I started about a year ago this April. It has been both helpful and confusing and disturbing and unsettling and amazing. The benefits and enlightenment that comes from being able to talk to a neutral party about anything without fear of judgement, being the … Continue reading shrinkage…
I ran today – yay. I also ate an entire box of Little Debbie honey buns, two hotdogs, and four pieces of Valentine’s chocolates (thanks mom and dad) – boo. Its the week before a certain time of the month (like you want to know that), and I will inhale all things bad for me in scary mass quantities. Its disgusting. Why not make yourself … Continue reading fatty fatty loco natty
Kiddo has a stomach bug so today was a sick day. I just wrote a post to go with this picture about the patience and nurturing of mothers being given out in different size containers and how I only got an 8 oz Mason jar, while others got big ol’ five gallon plastic buckets full of the stuff. And then I decided it was a … Continue reading winning at sick days
That breakfast recipe? It did not end well. I’m going to assume the eggs were bad. And that’s all I want to say about that. Date night didn’t happen, due to the egg episode. Kiddo and I watched a Barbie/PopStar movie instead. I don’t really want to talk about that either. The kidster was being exceptionally sweet and goofy though, and we laughed a lot. … Continue reading I should never cook. Or watch Barbie movies.
What is up with my pants lately? It seems like all of a sudden they are all about a 1/2 inch too short. It looks ridiculous. Can 30-somethings have growth spurts in the upward direction? I know all about the outward growth spurts so maybe that’s the cause of this phenomenon with my britches. Screw it. Yoga pants for the win. I started running again. … Continue reading various things in the morning
Snow. Valentine making. Cupcakes. Continue reading our weekend in collage
Today kiddo and I made Valentines and then I attempted to get her to nap. No dice. So we went to the grocery store instead and got Super Bowl food (just an excuse to buy junk) and stuff to make Valentine cupcakes tomorrow. Should be fun. And messy. And yummy. I’m not a Valentine’s Day hater, like many. Of course, these days most every holiday … Continue reading Valentine’s Day. Quit yer whining.
I just read this in my journal and it made me cry. Its like I need someone’s permission to be happy…someone’s blessing of sorts. Its so weird. And it makes me angry. Why am I hinging my own happiness on others? Why can’t I make my own way, make my OWN happiness? Is it because I’m a kind person who puts others before myself in … Continue reading
