So, I went away again for a long time, but for good reason. For the most part…

Wow, I have not written on here in almost 6 months to the date and I am ashamed, baffled and surprised at how much has transpired since I last wrote. I am now in a relationship with a great guy. IT has been official for a few weeks, but we have been dating/talking for over…

So, if a woodpecker has a purpose and a plan, then so must I…

I was sitting at my daughter's Saturday morning class in a funk because of some stupid things I have been doing. I saw a glorious woodpecker on a tree doing his thing. He was doing the job that he was born to do. He hopped from one tree to another, finding a prime tree to…

So, I have my first date in years…

So...I have a date with this seemingly cool guy. He did mention his rides a few times too many on the phone and I did roll my eyes a bit, but we'll see. I tend to be so critical of people because it is easier to not form an attachment. Make sense? I talked with…

So, Valentine’s really do come in all shapes and sizes…

My daughter is my Valentine every year. Even when my husband was around, from the minute my daughter was born, she was my dear little heart. When it became apparent on my daughter's first Valentine's Day that my husband was not a good man, I decided right then and there that I didn't have to…

So, sometimes do you wish to be saved by someone?

I know, I know. I am a modern girl living in a modern world. So why does someone need to save me. They don't need to. I just want them to! I know the feminists out there are banging their heads and thinking I have stepped back into the 50's with this statement. I don't…

So Insomnia,inshomnia what’s the big deal?

I am not sleeping much lately. Too much coffee? Working out late at night? Worried about everything under the sun? Yep. Yep. And yep. I am trying so hard to lose weight and I know that sleep is important. Especially when it comes to weight loss, but sometimes I go through phases where I don't…

So, being odd is just who I am…

I really am not like anyone that I know. Not at all. I am a single parent. I don't work a traditional job, and I don't act exactly my age whatever that means. I can literally have as much fun having a conversation with a 22 year old as I can with a 40 year…

Have people or events made you an emotional eater???

I didn't consider myself the type to eat when I felt emotionally distraught. I mean I have binged on chocolate before if I was sad and if chocolate was around. But, I don't go to the store to buy a certain food if I am going through something. I am constantly concerned about calorie intake,…

So, here are some tips to getting motivated!

I am so motivated on some days and other days, I am all like: Moti-what? There are times when I want to stay under the fluffy down comforter and barely peek above the top of it except to rub my fat feline. Then there are days where I am super-organized, super-excited. Super-motivated! These are some…

So, I am watching the Super Bowl and it’s fun…

I have not been into football or professional sports in years. I used to be a die hard college fan of football and basketball when I was younger. It was also fun when I dated someone who was crazy about sports. It really made my interest increase because it was a fun thing that we…
