A Very short Happy Thanksgiving blog

My 9 year old started a comic book series. This was his Thanksgiving greeting to his fan base. ... Read more

The best parts of yesterday with many photos

Wednesday, November 05, 2014      6 comments

Yesterday was the first day without the neighbors. The last day with them went about as smoothly as it could've really. The kid held it together until we went home and the family headed to the airport. This first shot is the photo of the ... Read more

Tomorrow will be a sad day

Sunday, November 02, 2014      3 comments

Roughly 3 years ago, our neighbors moved in. They fit rather well with the core group. The N family has 3 kids, the oldest son is the same age as the daughter in the O family. The son in the O family is in the same grade as the younger boy in... Read more

This was me at work. The other witch is actually from our sister company. The kid doing home... Read more

A weekend update, zombies, parties, and parades, oh my!

Tuesday, October 28, 2014      4 comments

This Saturday was a true test of the limits to my sanity. The zombie 5K. Just a reminder... I LOATHE running and I'm scared to death of zombies. It also was the same day as the annual family Halloween party. I still have no idea of why I did... Read more

Quick update and photos from New Hampshire

Wednesday, October 15, 2014      2 comments

First, Spot the tick. The nurse said it was a female dog tick and another group said a female black legged deer tick - probably. Either way, the meds should eradicate anything either one might have passed along. Those antibiotics have wreaked... Read more

The email I sent at work

Wednesday, October 08, 2014      2 comments

To preface, I have an immediate supervisor, a boss (boss of both of us, but I used to answer directly to him, so I always still keep him in the loop), my payroll person (who is also a work friend), and a co-worker who is friends with my dad and ... Read more

Sunday was all about taking a mental health day

Monday, September 29, 2014      2 comments

The weather for Sunday was unseasonably warm. The high temps were in the mid-July range. My husband mentioned we could drive down the Cape (Cape Cod) and go to one of the National Seashore beaches. Now I love the beach. I'm a little we... Read more

Check list for my 5k's

Friday, September 26, 2014      2 comments

Not so much a check list. I'm just trying to gage where I've timed in the 3 5k's I've run so I can make a realistic goal for the zombie run next month. The first one... Read more

What a difference in my mood

Thursday, September 25, 2014      3 comments

The issue with the orthodontist/surgeon was more of a weight on my mood that I think I realized. I knew I was incredibly frustrated, but I didn't see how much that frustration pulled me down until some of it lifted. Quick background for th... Read more

Hearts and Hands Walk for Autism

Sunday, September 21, 2014      1 comments

This past Saturday, the kid and I did a walk-a-thon for a local group called Community Autism Resources. It was the 11th annual Hearts and Hands Walk for Autism. It's a great agency that does all sorts of things to help families with someone i... Read more

Life is good

Sunday, September 07, 2014      1 comments

It has been a good, oddly calm feeling weekend for the most part, which I really needed. Work really has sucked of late. Short version is there have been a lot of things that are , if not illegal, certainly immoral. Nothing like putting peopl... Read more

The surgery sage...

Thursday, August 21, 2014      1 comments

Before I agreed to this fixing of my jaw (my jaw is longer on one side than the other and because of that, my teeth don't match as they should and I've started to do "catastrophic" damage merely in the act of eating), I was told 9-12 months in b... Read more

Body images and teachable moments

Wednesday, August 20, 2014      5 comments

I won't lie. For whatever reason, probably multiple, I have a lousy self image of my appearance. I don't ever remember feeling good about how I looked for days at a time. I was picked on in school for being fat, ugly, weird. I coped by embra... Read more

Not so much a blog (video blog)

Monday, August 18, 2014      3 comments

This was my ALS ice bucket challenge that my friend nominated me to do. The kid wanted to be nominated as did my mother. My 3rd nomination went to Graham Norton of The Graham Norton Show (BBC). I'm sure he will never see it, and even if he did,... Read more
