Yesterday I was at the gym. I realize that starting every post like that makes it sound like I spend every day at the gym. I don’t. But Wednesday is my day to go to the gym and my night to post, so let’s enjoy the illusion, shall we?
Anyhow, there I was, warming up on [...]
Doesn't everyone promise that lifting this will make you happy?
This afternoon I went to the gym. I was feeling pretty good about myself, all sassy and cute, because I’ve lost another pound, for two pounds down. They may be squishy pounds, not hard pounds, but hey. Two pounds. (Squishy pounds are tucked inside that weight that [...]
Hey! Remember last week? Operation Do-Over? Wasn’t that a great idea?
Except that the day before my mother-in-law arrived for a visit*, which meant lots of other family arrived. And what is it about family gatherings that collects food? Everything was thrown out of whack. Meals morphed into massive feed-a-thons. Ice cream was indulged in. Workouts [...]
Aaaaand….GO! Hey, wait, what's that?
Did anyone notice I didn’t post last week? No one noticed, right? The problem was that last Wednesday night my body was preparing for an…event of sorts, one that happens PERIODICALLY, if you follow. But being clueless and somewhat prone to hormonal insanity, I was convinced that what was actually [...]
I just realized that it’s my day to post and I have not, because I am stuck in a morass of back-to-school and climbing toddlerhood and Max, my middlest boy, turns twelve today.
I am sorry to fail you like this, so I will leave you with a parting word of advice on how to maintain a [...]

I read [...]
Please, just five more minutes?
Oh, HELLO again! How ARE you? Last time we spoke here, I was WHINING in a most unattractive manner about how my summer was going to suck in a thousand pitiful ways. Well, the good news is that I took everyone’s advice to heart, and I have determinedly enjoyed at [...]
*tap, tap, tap*
Is this thing on?
Sheesh, y’all. It’s all quiet and dark in here. There are cobwebs and sheets draped over all the furniture…wait a second. I’m getting lost in my own metaphor.
Anyhow, I thought I’d stop by and visit for a while. Do you mind? Well, you might when you hear what I have [...]
Last weekend I spent a thousand hours in the car with my loving family, driving to my beautiful stepdaughter’s high school graduation. I suppose I could tell you about what I learned from being trapped in a car with four children ranging in age from irrational toddler to far more irrational teen (hint: it’s further down toward [...]
I said I was going to figure out what to do with the baby’s mullet, right? That was supposed to be my “learning” thing for the week? But then Jamie left a comment about how her daughter tolerates little rubber bands just fine. And I happened to have bought a package of tiny little rubber bands [...]
