Wordless Wednesday

All the grandkids & great-grandkids at my grandmother's 85th birthday party



So, last week, I professed a goal of making time for workouts and making myself a priority. That was on Monday. I worked out Monday and felt great.

On Tuesday, I injured myself. Not by working out or doing anything strenuous. I was carrying my laptop upstairs, and I tripped over the cat.

Let me [...]

Vicki Shows Me Her Toes

I know everyone thinks their child is a genius. And, really? When they go from being able to do nothing to doing even the simplest things, it’s amazing. Every new thing Vicki does impresses me to no end, as if she’s the first kid to ever do it.

When I moved to NH, I had three separate people tell me [...]

Mommy Brain – It’s for Realsies

When you’re pregnant, it’s easy to get preoccupied with planning for the baby. That plus your changing body and the redirected blood flow to the uterus and placenta equals what is commonly referred to as “Pregnancy Brain”. Misplaced your keys? Blame it on the fetus. Can’t decide how many onesies to buy? Well, how are [...]

The Difference in Bathing Suit Shopping

I bought a new bathing suit yesterday.

And it wasn’t an awful experience. I was very excited at how smoothly it all went.
