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

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. I love that my coach is also my friend. I love that she greets me with a great big smile and so much positive energy that weigh-ins aren't dreaded. What I love most is that the scale {keep reading}

Reasons or excuses...

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. Don't get me wrong, {keep reading}

Thoughts from the train

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...]

Welcome to the Dark Side

The last time I bought a laptop, it was 2007. I was in marriage #2... Just started a new job... I bought a HUGE HP because it had 10-key keypad and ran Windows Vista. A lot of things have changed since then. That lappy was so big it was't exactly … [Read more...]
