So I am definitely on a downhill slide by now. I noticed it about two weeks ago. I woke up and was trying to prepare for church and my children were talking to me as they usually do, but I couldn't understand them. I could hear them, but it was all mumbled and jumbled. And... Continue Reading →
Has anyone else seen this? I do not have a TV so I had not seen it until today when I saw it as an advertisement. This almost brought me to tears because I can totally relate to these woman and their descriptions of themselves. For more information and to see each sketch close up, follow... Continue Reading →
Today for the first time in years when I weighed myself I was at 130lb. That is a 10 lb. drop from what I weighed on September 9. I can see my hips and collar bones and my tummy is almost flat and I LOVE IT! Now if I can just keep it there.... I... Continue Reading →

If you think I cut for attention, or to get sympathy, you are very, very wrong. Think I should just stop? Just get over it? If it were that simple I would.

I procrastinate, a lot. I have never thought of the reason why; I just always assumed that I do not like time and time does not like me. Thus, we fight again and again and time always wins because I am always late. I have tried schedules, alarm clocks, timers, you name it. I have... Continue Reading →
So I'm manic. Well at least hypomanic. And I hate it love it. Really. During the day it's great. I'm not getting much housework done, but hey! I have written more in the last few weeks than in the rest of the year combined. Anything Good? I don't know. I think it is, but hell,... Continue Reading →
This may really be saying something about me, but I will approach it anyway... My therapist is a wise man. I do not always listen to what he has to say wholeheartedly; mostly because I do not want to hear it, but he knows his stuff. At our last session he suggested that I read... Continue Reading →
