Reasons or excuses...

Today is stupid. It's a theme I'm hearing in a few different parts of my world today in various forms. Here, it's cold and rainy and gray. So gray. Mentally and physically. And as I was headed home from a work day that felt too long and sat in traffic for way too long, I started debating just going home, taking a hot shower, crawling into bed and hiding under my comforter with my old friend Netflix.

I blogged about the insanity of dating as a "grown up" and life raising gentlemen. I blogged every minuscule dieting win. I blogged about movies and shows and stuff I liked. Once upon a time I gained a new reader and friend {keep reading}

A different kind of comedy show

A different kind of comedy showHave you ever seen the show "Who's Line is it Anyway?"

Thank goodness that the streets were mostly empty that {keep reading}

The things we hang on to

The things we hang on toIt is a feeling of liberation mixed with sadness as I swept the last dead cricket out of my storage unit... a 10x30 space once filled to the brink with things I loved is now empty. Four years I've been hanging on to that storage unit and the things left inside. Four years that I've been holding on to "someday I'm going to need these again."   I'm glad that so many of those things went to people who needed them- most {keep reading}

Camping on a whole new level

I never went to a traditional sleep away camp growing up. I mean I went to dance camp and I remember that being at SMU for a week away from the parents but camp CAMP? Never happened. I think a lot of that is because it wasn't really needed. Mom was home … [Read more...]
