Sticky Planning

Our family is getting ready for an actual vacation. Like flying to an actual established location! I can barely compute this in my brain at this point. It was a last minute decision based on quite a few facts that I can’t necessarily go into here. My husband travels a LOT for work, and he’s […]

Words are toying with me today. It’s one of those evenings, I s’pose. I just tried to type “allowed” and it came out “aloud”. Wrong but right? This has happened in the space of five minutes at least as many times. Brain. Not. Functioning. Perhaps it’s the yummy chunky peanut butter toast I just ate? […]

The Other Side

I went to a support group tonight for parents of special needs kids. I sat across from a set of parents just starting out. Just getting through the trenches of post diagnosis, and into that great vast barren beyond of “now what?”. I feel for you. I see you and your smudged eye make up, […]

Bouncin’ Bertha

I had a great weigh in this week. I am down 3.4 pounds! Two weeks ago I weighed in and had gained, again, for the third time in a row. The leader asked, “What are you going to do differently this week?” as a rule, tracking is the first thing everyone talks about. Naturally, I […]

Lefty Lucy

That’s me! I’m a lefty. Both parents are/were lefties and i’m the only one out of three children to be left handed. Just another reason I’m so special. (sadly, both of my children were born right handed. … it was sobering. I’m hoping for a cure someday) When I was a young’un, my (left-handed) friend […]
