What was your longest uninterrupted stretch of “me time” this week?

What’s that? I mean, I played video games for about 20 minutes toward the end of the boys’ afternoon nap yesterday. And I still manage to use the bathroom and shower without an audience, which I hear will go away at some point. Oh, and I usually read for a few minutes before bed every […]

In our house, the sound of silence means…

That we’ve all either been kidnapped or (more likely) Dan is at work and I took the babies out somewhere, so the animals are resting/saving their energy to annoy the crap out of me when I get home. Seriously. Even when the kids are asleep, some creature somewhere is making noise. Or the TV is […]

What’s something both you and your child love?

The boys seem to enjoy going running with me. And running helps me maintain my sanity, so you know I love it. They alternate between just passing out and checking out the world around them. I run early in the morning when our main road is fairly well shaded, so I give them as much […]

If you could do anything tomorrow, what would it be?

Sleep. For, like, 12 hours. My crazy old lady cat started in with the meowing and running around the room at about 2:30 this morning, so I’ve been awake off and on ever since. And a meeting during the boys’ morning nap time means no sleep for me until they go to bed tonight! It’s […]

Camping or hotel?

Let’s be real. You guys know I probably wouldn’t be the best camper. I did it once in Girl Scouts, but that wasn’t even truly roughing it. We slept on cots in raised platform tents and had running water. I need running water. It’s very important to my lifestyle.

It’s not totally new, but I went back to reFORM Studios’ bootcamp this weekend for the first time in forever. It felt good to get back at it. Hopefully, I can start to get back to place that I was at before my mom died. I was in much better shape and training for a […]

When was the last time you worked out?

I totally went canoeing on Sunday. I need to get back to bicycling and running.

Water, ice or steam?

I still don’t fully understand this question. I guess this time I’ll go with water. I struggle with keeping properly hydrated, which is especially troubling since I’ve taken up running. Bring on the H2O!

Why I love what I do

The moving process had me without a home computer and internet for a bit, so I’m behind on the blog. Today, we finally got the internet set back up. But instead of answering whatever the day’s question is (honestly, I haven’t actually found and unpacked the journal yet), I’d like to write about something that […]
