Still kicking.

My broadband card bit the bullet last week and I have been living in the stone ages. A new dongle thingy will be delivered Monday...who knew being without the internet would be so crippling?

Surfing the web and reading blogs from my phone is not as fun...and I can't comment :(

As I type I am sitting in the middle of the woods in a deer stand. I don't hunt - I just enjoy being in the quiet while Sanford hunts.

I finally got around to making a fill appointment - I am in bad need of one. My eating has been off the charts awful.  I blame the tons of stress. But I am thankful for my band - even with eating tons of crap I have only gained about 5 pounds.

Speaking of stress...I still can't (don't wanna ) talk about the cause of my stress. But, let's just say we have experienced some major lifestyle changes in our house in the past three weeks.

Three weeks ago my stomach was in knots due to cheer drama. Can't say I miss that. Not one bit. And the further out I get from it, the more I can breathe a sigh of relief.

And Sanford and I are closer now than we ever have been. I am so thankful for him and his forgiving heart. Without him and our parents I think I would have just packed a bag and joined the circus.

And with all this time I have on my hands I have been able to keep up with my house work. Now I just have to focus my energy on good food choices and working out. That's my goal.

Oh yeah, and I should probably lay off the wine ;)


  1. here is to this week being great!

  2. I second what Amanda said. Time for a fresh start. :)

  3. Packed my bags and joined the Man - some days I feel like doing that too. Glad you could post!

  4. Sorry about all the stress. Hopefully you can move past it all soon

  5. Been thinking of you since your last post! Hope the stressful days start becoming minimal for you soon! Enjoy the quietness of the woods! xox

  6. I do love being out in the woods - so peaceful and quiet.. I've never thought of having my "connection" out there with me though - you go girl!!

    And believe me, I've been ready to join the circus with you! I've been thinking about you - and was so happy to see your post!

  7. been thinking of you every day. I walked past the cheer coach at our school the other day. She looked as if she had been hit by a bus. I felt for her. She is going through crap too....the same crap you are going through (well not nearly as bad) and the same crap I went through as a cheer coach. Enjoy the peace and quiet. Honestly....a strong marriage wins EVERY TIME over everything else!!

  8. Never discount the value of wine !

  9. I don't know you. I just read your blog. I'm a fellow educator. I wish I could give you a hug. I think if we worked at the same school we'd definitely be friends! You could come to the library and we'd scheme! Keep your head up.
