the place

Sometimes you're in the middle of folding laundry and are watching Abstract: The Art of Design on Netflix at the same time and thinking about how you've been in this really weird frustrating place for the past several days. It's a place you find yourself over and over again, probably once every couple of months... 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 →

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 →

Yesterday’s workout

Because you care. I decided to give the foot another day off. Plus, I'm scared I will go crazy if I run on it and it acts ugly so I'm delaying expected disappointment. Such a great attitude I have, I know. Anyway, the gym was good for me as it always is. Mind clearing and... Continue Reading →

this is why i’m in therapy folks

Texts this morning from yet another friend who is struggling for different reasons. Sometimes people are incredibly mean, closed minded, and heartless in their well-meaning-ness, if that makes any sense. I know life is difficult and there are struggles to be had. Its not all peachy keen, hunky dory, sunshine, rainbows, and unicorns, but I... Continue Reading →

bodies break

So far so good on the 1/2 training. Mostly. I was pumped to run outside last night but by the time I was free to do so, it was pouring rain and lightning. I will run in the rain no problem, but lightning is another bear. So to the gym I went and got in... Continue Reading →

Testy

I'm on a short fuse today for one reason or another. Its Sunday, so by this time every weekend I've responded to 20 gazillion calls of "mommy mommy" and my patience is taxed. I know that I am kiddo's whole world at this stage in her life so I try to keep perspective and channel... Continue Reading →

Dear Runkeeper,

Thank you for sending me this. However, I am in fact, NOT "bored with my routine", as you so helpfully suggested. You see, I no longer have a routine, unless you count lots of sleeping, cupcakes, and mentally tripping the senders of these relentless running emails as they walk down stairs. So by all means,...

where did i go?

This morning I heard myself yell up the stairs to kiddo as she skittered away from me to avoid putting on her socks like I'd told her to multiple times. "You are fixin' to get a time out young lady!!!!" Yes, I said "fixin" just like that, without the g, and I added in a... Continue Reading →

I am not a fan of small talk nor am I very good at it. Post holiday small talk tops the list of all categories of dreaded chitty-chatty-for-no-reason banter. Hello person with me in the elevator who I don't know but who I think works in accounting..."how was your Christmas" they ask me...I say "it... Continue Reading →

shutting down

Today has been, oh, what's the word I'm looking for? Oh yeah, SHITTY. That's it. And I just deleted the long post explaining why. So I will do what I usually do. Announce that I'm in a pissy mood and then shut down, crawl in my hole until my psyche cycles out of it, and then... Continue Reading →

aaaaaand here we are

Hi. I'm in one of those "I feel like talking/typing but I have nothing of value to say but am going to post anyway" kind of moods. Which usually ends up to be long rambling paragraphs about baby poop or the dream I had last night. But you don't mind or else you wouldn't be... Continue Reading →

Random. Someone found this blog by searching for "rockin it out". That made me crack up. Continuing the random. I have a problem. I cannot bring myself to throw away socks. Hole in the heel? Eh, put it back in the drawer, I'll throw it away never later. Trouser socks that are supposed to stay up under... Continue Reading →

zzzzz

For the first time in several days, I met my supafly workout buddy and we went to the gym this morning. My workout was "meh" at best but at least I was there. I think we might try to switch some things up because I for one, am kind of loosing my gym-mojo. Maybe late evening work outs instead... Continue Reading →

why the long face?

This is me. Spreading sunshine everywhere I go. Yep yep. I mean, can't you tell? Heh. The not-so-funny thing is, I really am a fun lively laughing joking person when I'm out from behind a desk. Can we say "you got off at the wrong stop lady"? Yes we can. Eh, anyway. Stuff 'n things. Ummmmmm,... Continue Reading →

this needs a snazzy title

So, that post below where I was going to "turn off my light and enjoy the silence" for a bit? Yeah, I totally fell asleep. Yeah, I was totally late to work. Yeah, I am totally talking like a valley girl. Good thing I'd thought to set my alarm, just in case. I'm in somewhat... Continue Reading →

just me…talking about stuff

First and most importantly, the earthquake in Haiti...horrible, tragic, unimaginable...things like this put my silly whining and craziness into severe perspective. You can donate at several places but two of my favs are the American Red Cross and Doctors Without Borders. Speaking of  things these tragedies put into perspective, I keep hearing all these rumblings... Continue Reading →

I'm having a really bad day. Let's just get that right out there. I feel beat down and discouraged with no way out of this hole I've put myself in. And I can't even, don't even, want to talk about specifics (not here obviously, but not anywhere or to anyone) because if you're not here,... Continue Reading →
