Thanksgiving is over and soon it will be Christmas and a new year. Wow, the year both flew by and yet felt like it lasted 30 years, am I right? It’s holiday season and I’m kinda feeling like the Grinch. Over the last couple of months, I just haven’t felt like myself. I blame menopause,… Continue reading The new me
It’s been a bit since I last posted something, but it seems like lately it’s hard to really focus on anything. I’m basically just trying to keep my head above water and get through a daily routine. This menopause stuff seems to be kicking my butt. And add a continuing pandemic on top of that… Continue reading Mental health break
Last week our family went on a vacation to Virginia Beach and this week I’ve spent much of the time thinking about how much I want to go back on vacation. We had a wonderful time. It was great to get away with our adult children and their spouses. We relaxed on the beach and… Continue reading This is 55.
Please excuse my long absence, but let me assure you that everything is fine. Well, sort of. The last time I blogged, I was getting to ready to have surgery and our youngest daughter was going to have surgery as well. Also during that time, my employer was asking everyone to come back to work… Continue reading Everything’s fine.
Thank you to everyone who expressed their kind words of love and support for our family following Tuesday’s post. We are still waiting on a surgery date for Kayla, but meet with her doctor on Monday and hope to know more after that visit. I had my preoperative work-up appointment on Wednesday and learned more… Continue reading Expected recovery process
This is a post that I never wanted to have to write again. I’ve debated whether or not to even share this. I’m just pissed, and I’m just done with it. However, I’ve kept my life on this blog pretty open and transparent, and I’ve shared lots of important milestones, whether they were good or… Continue reading June sucks.
Hello! I hope everyone out there had a nice Thanksgiving, although it probably wasn’t the usual celebration for most of us. We had a celebration the weekend before with just our two daughters and sons-in-law. On Thanksgiving day, the kids had a celebration with the in-laws, so it was just David and me and we… Continue reading Triple whammy
Yes, I’m still here. It feels a bit like the movie Groundhog Day, doesn’t it? Each day feels the same as the day before. The only time I leave the house is to go to work a couple of days out of the week, to the grocery store, and for my daily walks with our… Continue reading Pandemic Fatigue
The last couple of weeks have been a crazy whirlwind. Our beagle, who we adopted over 11 years ago, passed away this week at the age of 13. Up until a couple of weeks ago, he’d been healthy and energetic, but he developed kidney disease which progressed really rapidly and was starting to affect his… Continue reading Jasper
When I was first approached to be a Beachbody coach, I was VERY skeptical. While I loved the Beachbody workouts and was absolutely thrilled with the results I was getting, I didn’t think that I was qualified to be a coach. My coach, Michelle, convinced me otherwise. She told me that I have what it… Continue reading About this side gig…
