Goal weight. Ugh. And what's even more ugh is meeting said goal weight, having a lovely conversation with it and then promptly waving goodbye. Then watching it get further and further away until you find yourself with good old starting weight again. Starting weight is definitely not as much fun to be around. Nobody wants … Continue reading Goal weights and cookie dough
So, you know what's a really stupid thing to do during one of your busiest work months of the year which is also the month your son AND husband both go back to school (or just work, as Justin calls it)? Yep. Declare to the handful of people that read this that you're going to … Continue reading All In Update
Yesterday morning I was doing my usual pre-work scroll through Instagram. Amongst the food pics, the pet pics (I'm in no way complaining. I love them) and the weirdly specific ads, I saw one of my friends was participating in a new challenge for August. You know, one of those with its own fancy hashtag … Continue reading Reluctantly hashtagging
This isn't an actual post at all. Not even close. But I kind of set myself a new goal of posting something on here once a week and if I let my self-imposed deadline get past me even a little bit, it's a slippery slope. Seriously, let my hair be an example. I bought dye … Continue reading My cat is a master of disguise.
So, first of all, where in the hell did this summer go? (And based on some recent heat indexes, hell is certainly the appropriate word here.) It seems like yesterday I was planting my garden and getting ready to paint the deck for the pool season, and now only about five minutes have passed, but … Continue reading Summer screen time
Well, hockey season officially ended on Sunday (or the NHL's anyway) and, I'll admit, I'm still working through a case of the blues (but not the Blues. Gross.) I was really hoping to be nervously pacing waiting on the Predators to make some Game 7 history tonight instead of writing this but I'm not and … Continue reading Hockey Heartbreak
Lately I have been living like I'm auditioning for a live-action Cathy cartoon. I'm frazzled, want all the chocolate and, yes, I have said an "ACK" here and there. (It doesn't help that I also have an extremely round face and a love of blazers. Now that I think about it, maybe I just … Continue reading A Day Off
So, it's been a little while. Why? Well, there's been a lot of hockey, especially Predators hockey, on television (Conference Finals, wooo!). And a new craft beer place opened in town. (The Dam Brewhaus, check it out if you're local!) We've also fixed our toilet (ALL BY OURSELVES) and I am attempting to start a … Continue reading Testing, testing…
Well, it's happening. The cap and gown pictures have been ordered, the official school tour has taken place and the graduation date is circled on the calendar. My child is middle school bound and I'm not having an easy time with it. Maybe my emotions are running high because of the rainy weather we've been … Continue reading Middle (school) age
About two weeks ago, the family and I loaded up the car and headed south for Spring Break. Because when Wrestlemania just so happens to be a short drive from the beach, you multi-task and let the kid see the ocean for the first time while also watching the insane spectacle that is Wrestlemania. The … Continue reading Spring Break, woooo!
