These ones are kind of cheating, because we buy them exactly like this and just throw them in the oven. We typically have these on nights we have no t...
I just created my calendar for the month of July, and it’s going to be a busy month.
I’m adjusting my work calendar slightly to accommodate my workout routine. The way it was, I was finishing wo...
Over the past week or so I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about our space, or lack thereof. Then one of my Facebook friends posted a picture of an outdoor bar that she and her husband ha...
I’ll be honest. After a week of eating a handful of spinach instead of a chicken sandwich and working out every day, I’m a little disappointed that I haven’t even lost one pound. That being ...
Father’s Day was good! My father-in-law seemed to like the putting green we got him, and my husband seemed to like the tabletop grill I got him. He’s excited to try grilling salmon and vegetables...

This week has been a pretty good week.
I finished I Know This Much is True on HBO, and man it was good. The main character, played by Mark Ruffalo, goes through so much trauma and bullshit. I cr...
I hurt all over my body. My quads, my gluts, my abs, and to a lesser extent my chest, shoulders, and triceps. The routine of full body workout one night and core-cardio the next night is going to...
I must say, I am pretty satisfied with the way this weekend went.
My husband got the bamboo fence up over our balcony, and it turned out great. I rearranged the things we have out there and my h...
I feel like I waste so much time being anxious. I wish I could figure out how to break out of it.
Yesterday was a rollercoaster. The morning was fantastic. It was the first Sunday morning I can ...
I was thinking about it the other day and I realized, from the time I was about 16 years old until now, I’ve always had a vice.
It’s hard to remember the exact order of things, but I’m p...
I think I’m beginning to notice a pattern within myself. Things get quiet right before a storm.

I know some p...
The hubby and I had a productive conversation yesterday.
We dropped our little girl off at her grandparents’ house and took a nice, long, afternoon walk. It was established before we left that t...
I have spent the last 24 hours feeling deeply anxious and upset.
It doesn’t matter if my husband works more hours, if we work the same number of hours, or if I work more hours (which is the case...
