I've been absent for some time now. That's not a giant shock to those of you who've read this blog regularly. Allow me to clarify. I haven't been writing much here for at least a year, but more than that I've cocooned, more emotionally than physically but particularly in this online space - a space … Continue reading Gratitude For Those Who Give Me Life on the Roughest Days – Part 1
Ah...Grief Happens...but so does joy! I've missed you guys! I have so much I want to share, but alas, I'm the type who thrives only if I get my 8 hours of sleep, eat my veggies and healthy fats, and move my ass on the regular. I've been quite busy with some of my other … Continue reading A Mini Update and Advice Gleaned from Jane Austen

I'm hibernating these days. I'm keeping my hat on and my head down in the school drop-off lane. I'm declining all those glorious PTA committee chair requests -- 'Why, no, as much as I'd love to sell Krispy Kremes or head up the Second Grade Fun Run, I have to pass. Thanks so much for … Continue reading Tuesday Snark: Things I Wish I Could Say
It's fun to look back and see progress, as well as the demons that still occasionally haunt us. I played a blog game tonight and read old posts at random. Since I haven't had much writing mojo lately, I decided to play and post. I closed my eyes, tapped my tag cloud and up popped … Continue reading Past Post Monday — I Needed a Muzzle Then; I STILL Need One from Time to Time
1) Resume Writing -- OH MY GOD. This is what I was attempting when I threw in the towel and decided to blog. I met a lovely woman at a function this past Friday.

I've wanted to post an update, but I've been doing my best to stay focused on my work the past two days. I'll try to sum up the highpoints. The Good: -- I've gotten up every day this week at 5:30 and exercised. This is huge for me -- not so much the exercising but … Continue reading Still Plugging Away . . .
Prepare yourself, friends. Here comes another I gotta get my life together post. I need accountability and since I have none of that in my real life, I'm using this blog. I'm overwhelmed and at that point where I'm just sitting -- staring at the piles and trying to settle my brain and decide what … Continue reading Revamping My Schedule
I'm craving downtime. September has been a bit insane as far as my family's schedule. I want to jump off of this roller coaster, but it's not happening. Since I last posted, we celebrated Piers' 7th birthday, went to Atlanta for the weekend, hosted a going away party for Maeve from Fiji, who happens to … Continue reading September Randomness: Goodbyes, Job Possibilities, and an Alternative Menstrual Device
