Crap in the Attic

So….I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted, but we’ve been a little busier than our normal ain’t-got-no-time selves. You see, we randomly decided to move down the road. Up and bought a house. NBD. Yes, we had one that was perfectly fine. No, we had no intentions of going anywhere, weren’t looking, hadn’t considered it. But here we are, attempting to settle into a new (old) home after a few months of complete chaos.

See what had happened was…. Continue reading

Committing to Uncommit

Y’all….I don’t know about you, but I am TIRED. That bone-weary, want to take a sick day and not get out of bed tired. Is this that metabolism shift that everybody warned me was coming in my 30’s? Is it being responsible for three kids? Am I slightly lazy?? ALL OF THE ABOVE?! It seems like there is always something. Something to go to, to put together, to prepare for, to CLEAN (we’re gonna pretend like I do that for a sec, mmkay?). Continue reading

To THAT Parent in the Carpool Line

IMG_8171[1]It’s the start of a new school year and by now I’m sure we’ve all seen the inevitable posts from frustrated parents venting about that ONE car in the drop-off line that holds everybody up. The “get your crap together before it’s your child’s turn to exit the vehicle” posts. The “some of us actually have a job we have to get to” soap-boxes. And the “if your kid has so much stuff that you have to pop the trunk to haul it all out you’d be better off parking” commentaries. I recently saw a picture floating around the social media world sarcastically depicting when you should and should not use carpool. Continue reading

Liebster Award! (or…Q&A with Jess)

liebster-awardIt’s still strange to me that anyone actually reads my stuff, but I need to give a big thank you to fitness9555 for nominating me for the Liebster Award! Apparently this is an award to recognize and get to know new bloggers, so thanks for reading and I’m so glad you enjoy my posts! If you get a chance, check out her fitness and health blog. (She’s much more consistent with her posting!)

SO – since I’ve been nominated for the award, I am supposed to have 11 questions to answer, 11 bloggers to nominate, and 11 questions of my own to write. It’s one of those, do it and pass it on type deals. Gotta be honest real quick-like though. I’m terrible about taking the time to write regularly and even worse about finding new blogs to read so I’m choosing to flake out on this assignment and just answer the questions I was given. Let’s begin! Continue reading

Muscles or Mtn Dew?

Let me start off by saying that I realize I am not morbidly obese. Some girls would starve themselves before they let their gut look like mine but others are probably calling me “that skinny bitch” (sorry mom, language, I know). This is not a post about how our bodies compare with each other or “the norm”. It’s more about those times when we get unhappy with the way we look and the difficulties of doing anything about it. Just wanted to clear that up. Continue reading
