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 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...

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}

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. 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}

Thoughts from the train

Time for me

I shared a bit the other day about an amazing women's retreat at camp connect and the revelations from that weekend will continue to unfold here periodically.  One of the things I realized during some of those quiet moments of contemplation was … [Read more...]

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...]

Running late

Last night we decided to run to a newly vacated duplex to evaluate its condition and schedule all the turn around activities since the new tenant is scheduled to move in next weekend. We were all going to go, and the plan was to be there by 9:30am … [Read more...]
