Tomorrow I head back to work. It feels weird to say this but I'm actually ready to go back. I don't normally feel that way but I do this year. I'm not sure exactly why but I think it must... Continue reading

Guess how long that Tumblr iteration lasted? Yep, told ya. I'm back to deciding that I'm going to post all the random floatsam and jetsom here and use the Tumblr for mirror me projects. And set your timer to see... Continue reading

Well I'm down to my last week of summer (eep!). I have been terrible this summer about eating right and being in the kitchen. It started getting a little ridiculous there towards the end. Well time to get back on... Continue reading

I'm so tired of doctor stuff. I bet you are too. I've been imagining that first day back to work when everyone asks what your summer was like. My answer? One doctor appointment and health crisis after another. Doesn't sound... Continue reading

So I went back to the doctor today to get the results of my blood tests and to talk about anti-anxiety medication. Most of my test came back ok. My cholesterol was fine so pass the butter. My sugar level... Continue reading

I had a great 4th of July. This is Mr. Mellow. I have been seeing him for almost three months now. He is exactly what it sounds like: mellow, easy going, laid back, quick to laugh and mature. A grown... Continue reading

I have always been hesitant to name people in this blog. I don't share my name here although it is easy to find and I don't feel comfortable sharing someone else's name. Plus I always was drawn to blogs that... Continue reading

February was the last time I checked in with my New Year's resolutions. From the long silence you can guess how well they are going. I would touch on aspects of each of them, but I didn't necessarily keep on... Continue reading

You know what? I think June is joining September as one of my least favorite months. I know I'm supposed to like it because it contains vacation and all, but I never use it wisely and I always end up... Continue reading

I'm strangely nervous about the ruling from the Supreme Court this morning on the future of health care in the United States, nicknamed Obamacare. I worry about the future of the US. I'm sad to see this great country in... Continue reading

This week was better than last week. Last week I really let the anxiety and stress take over me and turn me into a non-functional entity. This week I still had some of the same concerns, but I handled them... Continue reading
