Rolling With It

I'm truly getting better about just rolling with it. In the old days (ie before kids and when they were younger) I was a very unstructured person. Do whatever, whenever and no planning. Easy, lets do it. That's my natural personality. Then came high school for the oldest and her sports. This was … [Read more...]

Well, here's how much fun we've had this summer...you haven't heard a word about it. Now you get to suffer through the slideshow. You better grab some alcohol, I poured wine so this could get long. Plus I'm documenting it for ME to always remember so if you tune out, well, whatevs … [Read more...]

Pissy, Cranky and WTF?

Here's the thing. My emotions have been sending me to cry recently. Thank you menopause shit. I've been a-ok with my anger and other emotions, just can't control alligator tears. But I guess fb wants to test me. Cause the last few days everyone is posting nothing but fucking whiny ass news. … [Read more...]

Sleep Study Bullshit

Tons of build up here, are you ready for the drama first? If you don't know, I had a hysterectomy on Dec. 6, 2013. Forever date stuck in my brain. That night I hate horrible shitty nurses.

Using Anger To Push Productivity

Last weekend I was hit with a blow that hurt but I worked through it. Not necessarily the healthiest way, there was a lot of wine involved, but I moved past. It got me to look really hard and evaluate what I can and can't change. It got me to look at what I want and my feelings. That in turn … [Read more...]

It’s May, How’d That Happen?

Holy Hell, I can't believe it's May. This year has made me lose my mind. I'm done dealing with new new issues from the hysterectomy. I'm done being fat. I'm done having no energy, no will-power and no focus. The hysterectomy was supposed to be the fix-all for me. And it was...for those … [Read more...]
