Happy New Year!

New domain name and hosting has been purchased. I am excited to get the new space up and running. I will be doing what I am calling ‘The 365’ … it is a series of 365 prompts, broken down by month/day. The one for today is “Your Biggest Dream” My biggest dream, if money were …

Bringing Blogging back

Ha. Hardly anyone ever read my blog back in the day, so it isn’t likely to change this time around. But..I like to write. And I have missed it. I miss creating blog designs. It has gotten a bit more complicated in the last 15 (ugh) years. I know what I want to do and …

Time.

Oh, I have so much on my mind. Mainly? Time… Time is wonderful, and yet the lack of it sucks. Example: My kid is some how almost 12. Twelve. So, I sit here and think of how little time we have left with her under our wings. And I CANNOT. Ugh. But, that is our …

Routine

For years now, I have felt ‘off’ … I just assumed it was due to my entire life being dumped upside down, the ensuing chaos, the roller coaster ride of trying to get my hubby back to normal, whatever that is. Living with someone who struggles with mental illness is a challenge. I often question …

The Longest Day

The Summer Solstice! I wait all year for this day! I had hoped today would be sunny and hot. Like summer should be. But, nope. 😔 I’m sitting here listening to the birds. They sure have a lot to say. When a car comes by, they hush for a second or two, and then resume. …

Busy

Being the only person to drive leaves me running ragged some times. I don’t mind it. Now that I don’t live in Tampa, and I don’t have to deal with 275 at rush hour or I-4 at any time, I’m good.. It just seems like I’m always running some one, some where. Again, not a …

Present day

So, I’m fat. Morbidly obese. I totally just gave up and ended up gaining 25 more lbs. I could spend time being angry with myself about it, but what good would that do? Self pity is what got me here. I’m to the point that I’m really uncomfortable and having a hard time doing normal …

Day 59

While I have largely pissed away the last 58 days, I’m still trying. I ate well today. I started my day with a Shakeology with spinach and almond milk. I had a late breakfast/early lunch of an omelet with peppers and onions, and ham and rye. I should have foregone the rye. Dammit, I love …

Day 58

I rocked today. Just sayin’…  😬 Hoping I can do the same tomorrow. 👍🏻 I’m TRYING to go gluten free. I found gluten free croutons. Yay! My salad for lunch was delish. My dinner was even better! It’s chicken, bacon, sweet potatoes, apples, onion, and Brussels all cooked in a skillet, seasoned with garlic, thyme, …

Day 41

A yummy lunch!! A big salad, with gluten free croutons. And a small glass of kefir.  Sitting here enjoying the meal with my mom.  It’s so cold out today. We have lots of snow. I had wanted to go take pics, but I can’t seem to warm up! Ugh.  While our winter has been ridiculously …
