Costco & Buddhism

5 miles!  We pushed ourselves through five miles last night, and man it felt great.  We now know the routes to mindlessly walk 3, 4 or 5 miles throughout our neighborhood.  That’s important because we like to get into a groove and just go.  We even went fairly fast because there was zero wind.  We…

Content & Settled


I would like to confess that the kids and I rock out to Miley and the Bieb every morning to get our day started just right.  And I’m not at all embarrassed.  Miley may make some choices that I don’t quite understand, but I still love her damn music.  And same goes with JB, although…

Implement the Plan

Two months.  Two months until my husband comes home for good.  Give or take a few days.  Three months earlier than expected.  Bring on the anxiety.  Last time I posted, we weren’t sure.  Now we are, and we still have no idea what our future holds.  But what we do know is that this is the…

Breaking the Cycle


Y’all know I’m trying really hard to love my body as it is.  That is definitely a work in progress.  And honestly, I haven’t been treating it very well recently.  I am not a proud girl.  I am, however, a busy girl.  And I have let that get in the way of my goals.  I…

I Will Love My Body


Oh, epiphany of all epiphanies. I have spent the last year(ish) learning to love my mental flaws.  I have finally learned that some of us are not crafty or creative.  Some of us can barely follow a recipe.  Some of us are messy.  Some of us are just not into doing our hair and make-up…
