Heart-Heavy

My heart is so heavy. There are good days.  The days it doesn’t feel crushing; the days I write my to-do list in my planner and bullet journal, and brainstorm on my white board, and tackle all the tasks, and wipe the counters, and make the lunches the night before.  We laugh.  We are so … Continue reading

Choosing My Way

I’ve been gradually trying to return to health, both physical and mental.  I’ve set a goal for myself to read 25 books this year, and I’m currently working to finish the first in preparation for book club this evening.

Weekly Round-Uppiness

I’ve decided it is high time to reinstate the Weekly Round-Up, for a myriad of reasons: I need to keep better track of my workouts. I like talking about myself. My weight is a creeper.  I’m currently sitting at 144.2; and judging by yesterday’s photos, my body is looking about ten pounds heavier than that. … Continue reading
