Daren and I have been reading this book called This post is NOT sponsored by anyone. Hippie swear. We both need to lose weight, I want to sleep better, have more energy, lower my blood pressure, & kick the Ativan. Paleo is short for Paleolithic. Basically, this is a good explanation of the history of
Man, I have been stupid busy. January whipped by. I lost 13 pounds in January, and I would love to keep going. The last week I’ve been stuck in a uterine holding mode, the scale not moving, and I’m okay with that. Eating paleo has awakened my mind and heart and I feel amazing, although it’s
Do you think it’s normal for teen boys to toss around the word “fag,” without any regard for the gravity of that word? I don’t. I don’t think it’s normal at all – and yet, all the searching I’ve done on the matter has come up with, well, the fact that yes, it is very
Shireen inspired me to participate in that blogging thingy whereby you write every day in November. I have A LOT to say. I just don’t always have time to say it. This past week has been absolutely brutal and I feel pretty destroyed. First, my 13 year old had knee surgery and stayed in hospital

I don’t know about your kids, but mine keep growing and growing. It’s ridiculous. The more they grow, the more they eat, and I can’t keep deli meat and pickles in the house for very long. (Which is why we made 48 large jars of pickles this year, thank you very much. I hate pickles.
Today was SO good. It started off kinda rocky because I sent the Teen out to his bus stop & he came back before it was scheduled to arrive. My fault – I mixed up the time by 20 minutes. I drove him to school, which resulted in a massive meltdown by the 8 year
Inspired by Pinterest, and the fact that I cleaned my bathroom today and I was sick of untangling all the 8000000 necklaces I’ve bought from Ardene, I decided that since my 8 year old wanted to go to the dollar store, I might as try my hand at making something to hold all this stuff.
I don’t really have a lot of time, as I’m packing for BlogHer, which means deciding which of my good flip-flops to bring with me. Oh I’m poking fun a little. I’m seeing some serious freaking out about BlogHer, and it’s a little daunting how much effort some people are putting into their wardrobe, hair,
