time spent

28 Jun

Today was pretty great. Hubs was off work too so we took the kiddo to school and spent the day together. We went to the gym and got our sweat on, then rode the motorcycle to a monstrously large parking lot so he could give me riding lessons without endangering others, next was vegetarian sushi for lunch, sweet cece’s for dessert, capped off with a luxurious two hour nap.

Tomorrow we have a babysitter for the entire day (!!!) and will attend a friend’s Hindu wedding at a beautiful temple and after-party that evening at a fancy hotel downtown. I’m pretty excited about it as these are dear friends and I love being exposed to cultures and traditions outside of my own.


  • taking kiddo to the most beautiful fireworks in the state
  • super short work week
  • volunteering with a local wildlife rehabilitation/education center
  • handing out food at a local charity for the homeless
  • kiddo’s birthday party
  • taking the Basic Rider Course in August to get my motorcycle license
  • prepping for kiddo’s entry into kindergarten
  • planning another trip
  • training for a fall 1/2 Marathon

Tired yet? Keep busy y’all.

By design, you are stronger than whatever you may create. Including the lions and tigers and bears now in your life. Oh, my!

Pittsburgh CollageI lurves her. Next time, Nora does Nashville!

My favorite memory from my local DQ back in the day? When my high school boyfriend asked me to wear his class ring. We were sitting in a booth by the window and it was all awkward and adorable.


brooding thoughts

14 Jun

Today was craptastic on a few levels. I felt like I disappointed someone very dear to me and then I felt belittled by another.

I suppose I shouldn’t “feel” so much and both of those problems would’ve been moot, but that’s rather alien-esque isn’t it? To not feel what you feel because you simply feel it. Good grief, someone must have spiked my drink.

I would say that I wasn’t myself but being spastic, moody, and dark is authentically me, as much as I hate to admit it.

How do you live in the moment and not in what you think the future might be? Doing that ruins the moment that you DO have in anticipation of a moment that you might NOT have.

I’m deep tonight y’all. Go to sleep.
