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

Soup’s on!

Vegetable soup happened today. I was all systematic and stuff (which is NOT like me) and had my grocery list organized by aisle thanks to our store’s mobile app. I got home and threw all the ingredients in the crock pot and went about my day. Sidenote: my crock pot was a wedding gift so it is a smidgen less than 15 years old. It … Continue reading Soup’s on!

1/30/14

Kiddo’s sleepover last weekend was a success and hubs and I were able to enjoy a quiet evening at home. In preparation for our night in, we had planned to enjoy a Mexican feast of homemade nachos with all the fixin’s. A mistake was made in sending me to the store hungry and the cashier asked me if I were having actual Mexicans over for … Continue reading 1/30/14

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

Yummy ugly pizzas, blue skies, and flowers

It was a gorgeous weekend to be outside! I put my bad run out of my mind and kept busy with other things. The Accountant and kiddo went grocery shopping and came back with pizza makings and flowers for me, just because. They then proceeded to make the ugliest pizza I have ever seen. But, it was delicious, after we peeled the “tin foil” off … Continue reading Yummy ugly pizzas, blue skies, and flowers

head meet ache meet perspective

No workout tonight. My head is splitting. Pain. I’m guessing a combo of being a girl (yay, lucky me, men are stupid*, don’t look at me in that tone of voice, etc), and the fact that I ate weirdly and non-healthily today. And did I mention the cramps? TMI? Oh, I’m sorry but this is my blog and I’ll talk about my female issues if … Continue reading head meet ache meet perspective

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

the latest

I’m more like Melancholy Melanie today rather than Crankypants McGhee. Progress people, it’s a slow thing sometimes. Memorial Day weekend turned out nice. I won’t recap the details but here’s a list of sorts…family walk on greenway, family cookout and subsequent soccer playing, trip to the zoo, puppet making and puppet show, gym, toy mini cooper driving, park, meeting new neighbors who turned out to … Continue reading the latest

11 years plus Anniversary Cobbler

Saturday was The Accountant and my 11 year anniversary! Wow right? Of course that doesn’t count the 3 plus years that we dated. So officially I have been driving him crazy for almost 15 years! We were out to eat Saturday with Sam and it came up in conversation with the waitress that it was our anniversary. She asked the obligatory “how many years” question … Continue reading 11 years plus Anniversary Cobbler
