I’m always working on forgiving people in my life. My father is a big one for me, though he’s more about coming to terms with that he’ll never change and that despite everything I do love him. I have an old friend who I still have close mutual friends with that I feel I’ve come Read More →

Most judgments of others are ego strategies to avoid uncomfortable feelings. However, if you lack the awareness of where they come from, they can lead to even more discomfort down the line. From this post.

These are the shows that I watch when I’m moody or just want to escape the world. These are shows I’ve watched several times. 5. Gilmore Girls – I put this at the bottom of the list because it’s not available for streaming on Netflix or Hulu, so that means you have to find another Read More →

Yes, I have a tendency to ignore/avoid phone calls. It’s true. I should probably be more open about this but people get upset knowing that you ignore their calls. There are 2 people I generally answer the phone for when they call and that’s my husband and my mother. I particularly hate answering the phone Read More →

  • Looking forward to the weekend, as always pretty much. Not much going on, so many people I’d like to visit but driving is just not something I can do right now if I can avoid it. Blah blah blah.
  • My friend is coming over with her son who is about 5 years old. This is something I’m looking forward to and a bit nervous about. I wouldn’t say I’m bad with kids, I just haven’t had much experience since my brother, who is now 28 years old.
  • Sounds lame but I want to organize, clean and get rid of more stuff, it feels good to do that. I hate those drawers that are just filled with useless shit. I have these old cell phones I don’t think anyone will ever want and cases for them, maybe I could at least put them in storage.
  • Excited to weigh myself tomorrow or Sunday, hoping I reached my 1st goal! I’m making myself wait, weekend mornings just seem to work better for weighing.
  • My android phone has a bug on it that’s driving me crazy and I don’t know what to do about it. When I type in the google search bar it duplicates every word I type. I thought getting rid of one of my apps would stop it but no such luck. I think I’ll keep removing the newest apps until it goes away.
  • Manly Man left me a love note in the driveway for when I came home from work. He used to do this a lot in our earlier years, it was nice to see it again.
  • Since we have really no money at the moment (stupid mortgage) we aren’t going to get out a lot unless we do something like a picnic or something outdoorsy, which is possible.
  • Lots of insane shit happening in my life, personal stuff, financial/house stuff, but nothing anyone would care about. I just hate how everything always seems to go wrong at the same time.
  • Trying to be optimistic in our situation is something I have to work at every single moment of every day because crying and having anxiety all the time wasn’t working.


I’m bloated, which is really sucky when you’re trying to be healthy because it does NOT motivate you (or me at least). I’m still keeping track of what I eat though, every single day. My laptop is very broken, our usual place can’t seem to fix it so it’s going to another place to be Read More →

Not my black cat but a black cat in the neighborhood. The woman who’s cat is missing came by our house because she’d heard someone saw a black cat. Turned out it was our cat Miles and she looked like she was going to cry, I felt so awful for her to get her hopes Read More →

I’ve always loved this nail polish. The colors always jumped out at me therefore I have several bottles of this stuff. I’ve been wondering lately if this brand is less than reliable when it comes to not chipping and at this point I’m fairly certain of it. No matter what I do or what techniques Read More →
