I was in a bit of a state this morning. All weekend I was in a funk, if you will, and this morning I was in an effing state. To be fair…I listened to a lot of Nas this weekend which left me feeling a tad aggressive. We had one of those weekends. The kind where we didn’t have the … More If. I. Ruled. The. World.
Join me, if you will, for a trip down memory lane. Please? When my husband and I met I had a fabulous job as a fundraiser for an organization I loved. I worked, and worked, and worked some more. My accounts were sacred and I did everything humanly possible to make their dealings with me … More Charmed. I’m. Sure.
So, as you know I’ve been on this weight loss adventure. I started in June and have lost 30 of my desired 40 lbs. I feel and look great. I’ve been “forced” to buy new clothes. It’s been a fabulous transformation. You know what is not fabulous? The f-cking ten lbs that I still have … More The. Way. I. Make. Me. Feel.
It has been a wicked good week. One in which so much was going on that it was barely possible to take showers or make meals. We were on the run all week but for such fun reasons. Let me share the highlights… Monday was my littlest little girl’s first Brownie meeting. As you’ll recall … More Blissin’. It. Up.
When I was single I was picky. My friends, all married, would try to set me up with great guys. But, like Seinfeld, I could easily find flaws in most of the men with whom dates had been scheduled. There was the guy who liked baseball (what guy doesn’t like baseball?) which I was excited … More If. It. Ain’t. A. Hell. Yes.
So about my attitude over the past few months… One late September morning in 2008 I was golfing with my girlfriends Ess and Moe. It was a perfect fall day, breezy and warm, and we had taken the day off to golf, shop, lunch, and get pedicures. I had just gotten engaged a couple of … More Fool. Me. Twice. Shame. On. Me.
Yesterday I had a bad day. In fact, I had a remarkably bad day. When I went to pick up the little girls from the bus stop I was so excited to see their little faces, to hug their little bodies, to kiss their little noses, and to rush home to begin our Monday night … More I. Wish. Them. Love.
So I have a tendency to think big. I’ve written before about my ability to come up with fabulous ideas, leap to the end of said idea, and skip the many many baby steps necessary to get there. It’s how my brain works. My husband and I can be having a casual conversation about our … More Here. And. Now.
I grew up twirling. An only child until I was 15, I had an active imagination, magic was a prevalent part of my existence, and I was a dreamer. Every chore I did as a kid was transformed into a fairytale. Sweeping the front walkway? A concert in front of tens of thousands of … More Literally.
It’s been an interesting summer. In summers past we enjoyed every ounce of every minute. Outside, at the pool, on bike rides, and just enjoying the freedom that comes from not having spelling words to practice, math practice, and homework. This summer the little girls have started to want and ask for play dates. All. … More Mine. For. Now.
