It's official: Momdom!

Sunday, March 16, 2014      5 comments

Tuesday our adoption became final in front of about 35 friends, family and social workers. And one awesome judge who gave our son, David, a quilt made by her friend. It's a little like living with someone and getting married. Nothing changes day... Read more

I'm a thrash metal band mom!

Sunday, January 19, 2014      3 comments

This is a quickie, but I haven't posted in so long it's better to start small, right? So our 17 year old foster son is in a thrash metal band, and we attended their second show last night. We staffed the "merch" table, where they were selli... Read more

Things are super good!

Wednesday, July 31, 2013      3 comments

Well, maybe not on the weight loss front, although I am holding reasonably steady despite my crazy new life as a mom as a new teenage son. And my back is spasming because during a foster youth summer camp we volunteered at, he jumped on my back ... Read more

Wait...I have a family!

Monday, May 13, 2013      1 comments

I was looking at my sparkpage and the reasons for wanting to lose weight. One was for my "future family", as I wanted to foster a youth. But hey! We took in a 16 year old in December, and I celebrated my first Mother's Day ever! It's tricky beca... Read more

Ran a 10K

Monday, March 18, 2013      4 comments

So. The furthest I've run is a little over a 5K-about 3.5 miles. I signed up for a 10K that was today so I had a bigger goal to shoot and train for. I knew I wouldn't be able to run the whole thing, as my training had stalled a bit, but I was ho... Read more

Just did it!

Sunday, February 03, 2013      4 comments

I haven't skiied in 15 years. But the kid wanted to learn to snowboard, and that got me out to the slopes. You'd think I'd be nervous. Well, I guess a little. But since I took on our foster son a couple of months ago, I feel now like anything is... Read more

HUGE life change

Friday, December 14, 2012      5 comments

I did it. I was really, really brave. I knew I wanted something that would change every single molecule of my existence (and my husband's). And so with that intro... We now have a 16-year-old foster boy living with us! OMG, right? It was li... Read more

Checking in!

Tuesday, July 31, 2012      2 comments

Yes, Pewterbunny, it IS time for a new blog entry! Well, I've been training for a 5K - that is, to RUN a 5K, all the way through. I am not a runner. That's what I always thought. I can bike 100 miles in a day, but I couldn't run more than ... Read more

Did something bold

Tuesday, March 06, 2012      6 comments

I was brainstorming yesterday morning on what things would really help me lose 10 pounds by the end of April. There were the usual things, but the one that stuck out was accountability. It made me think about Weight Watchers again, but then I th... Read more

Falling into the same hole

Friday, March 02, 2012      3 comments

Arg! I've been reverting to my old ways. I'm frustrated at myself just a little. I seem to go through spells where I don't think before I eat, or I plan something and let a last minute social opportunity derail my plans.Here I am, walking down t... Read more

Morning rituals and truths

Friday, February 10, 2012      3 comments

I have been thinking of morning rituals lately. I know I am the type of person who simply can't do the same thing every day. I rebel. I'm in fact surprised I am able to stay married to one person, but then he is a special guy. Back to morni... Read more

Another day!

Friday, January 20, 2012      3 comments

Still kicking' with Spark! I'm having a rough week - depressed for some reason - but I've still exercised and am thinking about what I will eat. Or trying - I'm not perfect. But I've reduced the "sit in front of the TV with food and eat mindless... Read more

Those darn rabbits

Saturday, December 31, 2011      7 comments

Well, now I know how it will feel when Ophelia, our first bunny, dies. Ophelia is somewhere between 11-12 years old. The first bunny who stole our hearts and got us into this whole bunny rescue and advocacy thing. And even at her age, she is sti... Read more

Rolling with the unexpected

Tuesday, December 06, 2011      3 comments

Wow, things have been so crazy lately. I've been doing so much unexpected work at the shelter with the rescued buns, plus all the other things life throws at you. Sunday I'd expected to drop my foster bun off to get spayed, get a bunch of things... Read more

Random Tuesday-ness

Tuesday, November 22, 2011      2 comments

I'm blogging today without a real thought on what to blog about. I'm hoping it comes to me while typing. Good news is I'm being much more creative lately, and this makes me so happy. And working at the shelter for the rescue buns has hit a chord... Read more
