things I’m not great at but getting better

The only thing hip are my hips.

February 19, 2011

I rarely get out alone.  JPW rarely gets out alone.  It’s just not “in the cards” right now.  After my minor breakdown the other day JPW told me to do something, anything.  So,  I headed out to meet up with a local photography group to work on a photo challenge.  I was really excited about […]

I’ll never be “behind” in blogging.

January 31, 2011

It was 6:18am when I noticed the clock, I rubbed my eyes and headed to the bathroom.  I knew once I slunk back into bed there was no falling  asleep; so I scooted up next to JPW, my back pressed against his and read under the covers.  I enjoyed the quiet and rhythmic breathing of […]

A lot has changed recently, and it all happened rather quickly.  I have a lot to blog about, I have a lot of to-do lists started and I’m excited to accept the change, move forward and take off running.  My mind has been racing with so many ideas and many of you have been sticking […]

V is for Vom.

November 10, 2010

I have an irrational fear of vomit.  I hate it. I hate doing it and everything that “comes with” it.  I won’t go into details, but I just don’t handle “it” well.  In my teaching years I would “train” the children to just leave the classroom immediately if they thought they were going to be […]

Headed home, just for a weekend.

November 4, 2010

Tomorrow evening I’m hitting the road with an overnight bag and Ryann.  We’re heading back to our old stomping ground for a friend’s birthday party.  This will be the first time I’m taking a road trip without JPW’s help.  I don’t mind road trips or driving, but Ryann is mobile and hates to be in […]

Deep thoughts.

October 7, 2010

There is a burden on my heart. There are emotional bags weighing down my arms. There are regrets swirling in my mind. There are swollen eyes from tears. There are too many hurtful words uttered. There is a deafening silence. There is nothing left. cheap jordan shoes mulberry uk prada bags outlet cheap mulberry handbags […]

Where are you bandwagon?

May 24, 2010

We fell off the proverbial bandwagon.  It wasn’t intentional, we had a screaming baby for two nights, so working out was not a priority, then JPW got a touch of something yucky, so he was down and out for a couple of days and then it was Thursday and I was frantically trying to clean […]

I’m not a robot.

April 29, 2010

I have feelings and a heart and CAN.NOT.TAKE.THE.SCREAMING!  It’s rough for me lately and I can usually handle any and all of Ryann’s tantrums, wails, shrieks and boohoo’s, but this new scream is awful.  There are big alligator sized tears, a piercing stare with her eyes and a scream that can be heard in the […]

Sometimes I’m not fit or fabulous. Or even attempt to try.

April 19, 2010

Friday I was desperate for a break.  I had a brief moment of silence while Ryann took an extremely short nap and I was able to write this. I couldn’t believe the overwhelming support and encouragement.  First, thank you!  Some days are tougher than others.  Second, JPW came home and insisted I go out.  At […]
