Nope. It's not a blog about the dangers of eating chili dogs...although if you're like me, and you grew up in Cincinnati...Skyline Chili definitely has it's temptation! ;) But no, this is about my crazy 10 year old son. He has my "slightl... Read more

I have long lamented the fact that most of my friends have no interest in exercising. I've always felt a bit jealous when I'd read blogs or articles where people would say, "oh, ask your girlfriends to join you in an exercise class or invite th... Read more

It had been a really good week...I've been resolute...eating well, exercising as much as I can. And that's even despite the bad weather and my schedule being reworked because of my kiddos being out of school for a couple days. UNTIL LAST NIGHT... Read more

Well, well, well...here I am again. I guess not giving up completely counts for something, right? :) I've had a complete breakdown of all things healthy over the past 6 months or so...and my waistline and happiness level are reflecting it ... Read more

Monday, July 19, 2010      7 comments

I woke up. Seriously. Last week hubby did me the very thoughtful "favor" of bringing a funnel cake home from the county fair. He was there for a cornhole tournament and because he knew my favorite "fair food" is a funnel cake...home he co... Read more

I can only label yesterday with the words "Bad Day". Although, in all honesty, I think it has further reaching consequences than just "Bad Day" can encompass. I only just decided it was a bad day as I laid in bed last night and found myself wi... Read more

Sunday, April 18, 2010      4 comments

So they say truth is stranger than fiction, and based on personal experience, I’d have to agree. I promised my co-leader of the 40 Somethings team that I would blog about my life. I told her that the story would be hard to believe, that someti... Read more

That was all it took. My stepmother had her justification now. She flew across the camper at me and beat me like I’d never been beaten before. My stepsister started screaming “Leave her alone! Leave her alone!” I remember looking at her as ... Read more

My Nemesis: The Evil of the dreaded SCHEDULE!!!
Wednesday, March 31, 2010      4 comments

Or maybe I should say - the lack of a schedule! Recently hubby and I had a talk. We had to enroll my oldest son into Sylvan to get him tutoring help with math. He was really struggling and we were very concerned that he'd keep getting mov... Read more
