If you know me, then you know that change is not exactly my thing. Reliability and stability are kind of my jams. Now, if you don't happen to know to me. I can quickly paint you a picture. I am refusing to change out my debit card until I get a notice from the bank … Continue reading Changes. Gulp.
First - Happy Birthday to my wonderful mom today! Also, I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving with family/friends! (Or successfully avoided family/friends and had a lovely solo day of thanks. Whichever floats your boat. No judgement here.) We did and I have now consumed my yearly quota of delicious canned cranberry sauce, so no … Continue reading A cornucopia of a post
Guys, the events of this past week have been a little weird. I'll start with my thyroid. Which is apparently something I should have done a while back. A few weeks ago I noticed that it appeared I had a golf ball stuck in my throat. I did not remember trying to unsuccessfully eat a … Continue reading My thyroid, a kitten and stranger strangers
A traumatizing thing happened at House McGill this week. Brody invited strangers over. Now, I guess they weren't technically strangers since they were kids that he has at least observed at school. But since they just showed up on a random Thursday afternoon with no warning whatsoever and I have never seen them before, I … Continue reading My house, my fortress
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
