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... Continue Reading →

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... Continue Reading →

miscellany

Sick. I really wish someone would bring me some warm gooey chocolate chip cookies today. I'm home sick with a fever, cough, etc etc and I say screw the chicken noodle soup, cookies are where its at. Anyway, mutter mutter growl. At least I should be over it in plenty of time to enjoy the... Continue Reading →

being kind to self

The question of the day is why is it easier to be kind to others (to an extent, ha-ha) but more difficult to treat yourself as kindly? My therapist has used the example of comparing how I talk to my child vs. how I talk to myself. I can't fault her point because I would... Continue Reading →

moving…

...my body that is. And brain too, I suppose. Feeling good lately with better food choices and consistent work outs at the gym and walking/jogging outside. The weather is supposed to be icky this week so I've tried to take advantage of the good stuff while I can and have been getting my walks done... Continue Reading →

i should be sleeping

Its after midnight and I should be sleeping. But its a full blue moon and my brain is whirling. Today was busy and somewhat annoying but it ended better than it began I guess. I started off weepy and weird and missing a friend and worrying about some very serious family health issues. I'm still... Continue Reading →

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,... Continue Reading →

organize me

Parent orientation went well after the initial scramble to get kiddo settled in next door and her supplies all gathered up (because waiting until the last minute is one of the things I do best). Her teacher is young and bubbly and the school itself is super nice. We have a huge packet of information... Continue Reading →

Hiya August

I'm not going to say "time flies" because I hate it when people say that. It doesn't fly, it passes at a constant rate. Its your perception of events within that time that make it seem to "fly". But whatever. So, August 1. Like most other days, although made much nicer by lunch at a... Continue Reading →

body betrayed

I've rested my foot for the past three days. Two of those days I rested completely and cross-trained on the other one. Today it was time to get back out there. I walked the dog first and got in a 1.4 mile warm up. Then ran/walked 3.4 more miles. It wasn't pretty. I got through... Continue Reading →

Today….did NOT suck!

Ok, honestly today kind of did, but yesterday was good. The  Accountant's birthday was yesterday but we were too tired to celebrate much. Poor guy. Tax season is killing him and I've been immersed in federal grant land for weeks. But we have a sitter lined up for tomorrow night so we'll do something in... Continue Reading →

zombie brain

My "grey matter" as a former English teacher used to refer to our adolescent brains, has been completely mush the last couple of days. Maybe its too much Dora and not enough veggies or something, I dunno. I do the whole zoning out thing quite well but some days its way worse than others. I... Continue Reading →

doo da doo da

you would think i'd learn but i never do. every morning i wish i'd gone to bed earlier the night before and yet, here i sit. it's past 10 (yeah i'm old, deal) and sam has been asleep for a couple of hours. i'm tired but don't want to go to bed. i'm also whining... Continue Reading →

just a few lil’ things

I was reminded by a post over at Chez Bez's place how cute I think The Accountant is when he shaves his head and grows his goatee. I'd post a picture but he hates that so I'll just embarrass him with words only. And maybe "cute" isn't the right word. More like sexy haut. Ok,... Continue Reading →

so i’m a wuss

It would appear that I'm a big whiney baby. According to the x-rays there is nothing majorly wrong with my knees. Mr. Cutey Sports Medicine Doctor Man said that I probably have "somethin' somethin' blah blah blah" (a condition I obviously can't pronounce, much less spell) and that I need to go to physical therapy...

hola

Hi ya'll. Sometimes I think I really should blog something or other and then I'll just be like "nah". I know some people read this to keep up with my exciting life that I don't otherwise talk to very often so I somehow feel like I'm holding out on them if I don't post about... Continue Reading →

blurg

This is what I say when I'm just kind of meh about it all. Usually right now I'm sitting in church with Sam but it seems that all three of us have contracted some sort of stomach virus that refuses to go away. I've had it the longest, then The Accountant was the lucky one... Continue Reading →

oh bloggy blog

How I have neglected you this week! So sorry but it just hasn't been on my priority list. The Accountant's grandfather passed away this week so it's been a sad week. He was the nicest man you'd ever hope to meet and I know I'm glad to have known him. The last time I saw... Continue Reading →
