Bent but not broken

Bent but not brokenBack in March, for those who have forgotten, life changed. I try not to dwell on the negative. I aim to find the rainbows in the storm... literally and figuratively. For the last seven months since the accident recovery has reminded me that sometimes life has to go at its own pace. You can't force your bones to mend. You can't rush the muscle strength. You do the things you should and hope for the best. Do your best. It's one of {keep reading}

Beautiful Brokenness

Beautiful BrokennessYears ago I was introduced to a singer/songwriter by the name of Karen Taylor Good. My mom and I heard her music and bawled... like you do... as so many of her songs hit us smack dab in the heartstrings. You've heard her work if you listen to country as Patty Loveless sang "How can I help you say goodbye", but you may be less familiar with some of her other work. We played On Angels Wings at my grandmothers funeral... I sometimes {keep reading}

I did a thing... and it may be crazy

I did a thing... and it may be crazyFor the last 6 weeks since the accident, I've been thinking about what kind of car I was going to get. Ok, maybe the last 5 weeks because that first week was mostly spent in the hospital and drugged up. I knew fairly quickly I was going to stay with the Infiniti. Let's face it, I was damn lucky but more than that, my Infiniti did its job really well protecting my giant and I from the unthinkable. I don't even {keep reading}

Drunk drivers and recovery

Drunk drivers and recoverySome of you may already know this because, well, you follow my Facebook. I should also warn that there may be graphic descriptions and images. I need to write this out. Consider yourself warned. Monday evening, March 12,2018. My son and I were hit by a drunk driver. WE ARE BOTH OK. I wanted that in caps because you don’t bury a lead like that. Everything could have been so much worse. I know that. My car is obviously totaled. My son {keep reading}

Slim Down Saturday- cooking for a crowd

Slim Down Saturday- cooking for a crowdI didn't post last week but not because of any particular reason. Just trying to figure out my new normal. Again. It's like just when you think you've got it all figured out, life smirks and screams PLOT TWIST. But we are all getting there. One day at a time. When I first started on ideal protein, the folks and I had an arrangement. Don't worry about meals for me and I'll still make dinner for you on the weekend as {keep reading}

Slim down Saturday-the scale is a lying bitch

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 … [Read more...]

Another fresh start?

When I started this blog I had no idea what I was doing. I wrote random things that popped into my brain and outside of my circle, am pretty sure no one else cared and I was ok with that. I blogged about the insanity of dating as a "grown up" and life … [Read more...]

A different kind of comedy show

Have you ever seen the show "Who's Line is it Anyway?" I remember watching and being in complete awe at how these brilliant comedians could come up with such funny material on the fly. I always assumed it was somehow scripted because no one could be that … [Read more...]

Car Shopping the Right Way

**Sponsored Post** Some of you might remember that fateful New Year's Eve when, while on my way in to work, a semi ran me off the road. Ok maybe not - but I do. It was terrifying. And everything kinda happened all at once and in slow motion at the … [Read more...]
