Be patient with yourself, you're doing the best you can

Sometimes the universe really does reach out to us. Sometimes it's subtle - a lost loved one's favorite bird perched on a branch, or their flower or scent where you wouldn't expect it. Or realizing that it's your high school sweetheart's or h... Read more

I went for my appointment yesterday and got the all clear. Thank you all for your support, I really appreciate it. Feel free to stop reading now. It was more than a little stressful, and my poor mom in the waiting room for over 2 hour... Read more
One hurdle cleared
Tuesday, December 30, 2014      6 comments

For those of you that read my last blog - this is basically a follow-up. I had my first appointment and got the all clear. The polyp was nothing to worry about, and my blood work came back normal. A huge relief, yes - but that's not the a... Read more
End of the quarter & stress
Tuesday, December 16, 2014      6 comments

This is the last week of the quarter here so I'm beyond stressed. I'm buried in paperwork, and I'm not sure I'll ever find my way out. It's like this every quarter, so it's actually nothing new, but every time I think I'll never manage. I wil... Read more
Boring is good

Lest you think I'm all doom and gloom and high drama all the time, I'm writing a blog about my super quiet week. I'm still overwhelmed at work, but it's getting better as I get into the swing of things. Having new textbooks means writing a... Read more

This is Chase. He snuck out over the weekend and hasn't come home. I'm so sad.... Read more
TMI #5 update
Monday, September 08, 2014      7 comments

We had our big blowout Tuesday, fought again Wednesday, and I posted the last blog entry on Thursday. Then Thursday night he went to his friend's house. I had no idea of when he might be home, or even if he might just stay there overnight so o... Read more
TMI #5
Thursday, September 04, 2014      9 comments

All summer I thought hubby and I were working to make things better. I knew they weren't 100% (more like 10 I'd say, some days 15) but then after the other night I guess we didn't make any progress at all. We didn't fix anything, we just stopp... Read more
and now for something completely different

It was time for a change. Pretty much out of my comfort zone - I don't photograph well, either as... Read more
Exercise(s) in frustration
Tuesday, August 12, 2014      9 comments

Today was just one of those days where I just couldn't get any traction and as I sit here tonight I'm just trying enjoy some quiet time and pull it together and gear up for tomorrow. I've been at the school off and on all summer, more in the la... Read more
Tough decision and a new plan
Thursday, August 07, 2014      7 comments

I've been a member of the teddy bear team for a number of challenges. The idea is that we try to lose 5% of our body weight over the course of an 8 week period. We have weekly challenges (tracking, sleep, fiber, etc.) and post our exercise min... Read more
First World Problems and I'm lucky to have them
Wednesday, August 06, 2014      4 comments

I won't say that I'm not still stressed out - that would be a lie. What I am trying to do is put it all in perspective. I used to be a very balanced person, and things really didn't get to me. I was able to compartmentalize and cope with one ... Read more
Where did the summer go?
Thursday, July 31, 2014      7 comments

I didn't sleep last night because I've just got so much on my mind. I'd start to fall asleep, and then jerk awake with my heart racing. Some of what's going on is totally my fault, much of it I have no control over, and all of it is causing me... Read more
TMI #4
Wednesday, June 04, 2014      11 comments

Yesterday I shared a little of my crazy with you. I apologize, no-one needs to see that but it's where I was yesterday. In my saner moments I have a little more perspective. Things between hubby and I have been deteriorating. An old ... Read more
TMI #3
Tuesday, June 03, 2014      7 comments

So in the last TMI blog I said I wasn't really angry anymore about the initial relationship, and I think that's really true. Things have been so bad between us for so long that I actually understand how easy it would be to allow a legitim... Read more
