Drunk drivers and recovery

Some 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

I 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 bitchSaturday is my official weigh-in with Ideal Protein. That's not to say that I don't hop on my home scale throughout the week but the official weight comes in on Saturday. There are a lot of things I love about my Saturday morning ritual.

Don't get me wrong, {keep reading}

Another fresh start?

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.

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...]

The things we hang on to

It 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 … [Read more...]

Captain America: Civil War – {A Slightly off kilter review}

It is no surprise that I'm a Marvel fan girl.  Definitely not as hard core as some, but a fan nonetheless.  So, when I was offered an opportunity to check out the latest installment in the Marvel Universe, Captain America: Civil War, I jumped at … [Read more...]
