Muscle weighs more than fat and the moon is stupid.

June 15, 2011


This morning I had kind of a break down.  I was getting dressed and nothing was going right. This led to: I suck at life because I am behind on laundry. Which led to: If I wasn’t so fat, the clothes in my closet would fit right and I wouldn’t have this problem. Which led […]

I wasn’t sick, just fat and unhappy.

March 5, 2011


Recently, I was unemployed (by choice, thankfully… and yes, I do know that I am lucky) for a couple of weeks, but I wasn’t  sitting around eating bon-bons like my former coworkers and I joked that I would.  In fact, I was doing just the opposite. I realized that I need to take control of […]

The Arms Came Out

July 6, 2010


Daniel didn’t notice my new hair… When I gave up and pointed it out, he said he had noticed it had less gray in it. Um. Yeah. I forgive him, even though my coworkers noticed immediately.  One day my hair was “Blond” (quotes because it wasn’t entirely blond).  The next day it was brown.  I […]

Summer Vacation?

May 6, 2010

Life is pretty good lately.  Other than the fact that I’m kind of falling apart, everything is fine.  I’m not really falling apart.  Just kind of.  I have a weird swelling/pain in my hand that gets worse when I do my job, which is awesome because it isn’t like I can just stop doing my […]

Surviving a Zombie Outbreak

April 23, 2010


I moved my office last month, and now I am back working with all of the boys I used to work with before my job changed about a year and a half ago.  I missed them.  There is one other girl at our branch, and we’ve bonded over the fact that we’re both pretty darn […]

Brazen! Or Excited for Warm Weather

April 20, 2010


I love cardigans.  I love them a LOT.  My sister and I used to go “Cardiganing” which was essentially “Thrifting” with a cardigan focus.  As my style has evolved, I’ve gotten rid of a lot of the sweaters I once loved.  I’ve realized that thread-bare is thread-bare no matter how amazing something was when you […]
