Therapy: On Feeling Better

My latest therapy session was a good one. We spent a lot of time talking about simply wanting to feel better and using that as motivation rather than relying on a number on the scale or the size of my pants to dictate my mood. I’m feeling all of my 42 years plus about 10 more these days. I shouldn’t struggle so much to get … Continue reading Therapy: On Feeling Better

Since You’ve Been Gone

I can breathe for the first time…Just kidding. After about a year’s absence I kinda just have to start over here. Here are the major highlights: I started a new job! 🙂 Our dog died. 😦 I restarted and then quit grad school. Again. 😦 I’ve gained about 20 pounds. 😦 One out of four is not great, I realize. But the steady stream of … Continue reading Since You’ve Been Gone

2016 so far

…has already had quite a few ups and downs. The Ups My dad’s store moved to a new location and it is pretty amazing. Nicer and newer with better parking and facilities. It’s been a stressful time for him but I think things are finally settling down and falling into place. Hubs had some big/positive things happen at his work that are in his/our favor. … Continue reading 2016 so far

various thoughts at 3 am

Emotional rollercoaster today. It’s not something I can explain here. Its just…all the things. Bleh. Life is weird. As mentioned in the title, it’s an ungodly hour and momma is up pacing, nervous as a cat. #1stdayofkindgergarten Last day of daycare today for kiddo. Teary pickup. Last long commute home with her. Not so teary, for me anyway as kiddo was in a mood. Probably … Continue reading various thoughts at 3 am

1/2 mary and battles with wacky nuts

In a few months I’ll be “running” in my second half marathon. I use the word running loosely because I walked the majority of the one last year and while I plan to run most of this second one, I am not above walking parts of it as well. Ain’t no shame in walking my friends. I have a training plan worked out and will … Continue reading 1/2 mary and battles with wacky nuts

3 things learned on a Monday

Dressing room lights are severely unforgiving. As in, they should be illegal. Making the workout pants I purchased all the more necessary. The dog will always have to go out to pee as soon as I’ve sat down to feed the baby. The key to world peace….nitrous oxide.  Who wouldn’t get along while chilled out on this stuff?  Obama, are you listening? I’m just sayin’. … Continue reading 3 things learned on a Monday

where I tell you ’bout my weekend

This weekend was a great one and I’m sad it’s over. All the hoopla from the holidays is behind us and now we descend into whatever our “normal” happens to be. I’m none too thrilled about that but I’m trying to be a more positive thinker and am going to make my best attempt to carry over the good will and happiness from the holidays as … Continue reading where I tell you ’bout my weekend

how do i bring sexy back?

You know those women who claim to love their new post-childbirth-bodies?  The ones who expound on the beauty and utility of their new boobs and maintain that they have embraced their stretchmarks as some honorable “badge of motherhood”? I am not one of those women.  And those women are obviously lying.  I’m just sayin’. I agree with these same women when they say how awed they are that their … Continue reading how do i bring sexy back?
