I am more than one thing. And so are you. It's time to break the cycle of boxing ourselves in - we are more than the one or two passions we share about the most.
We've all heard weight loss experts encourage us by saying "when you're working out to lose weight, don't worry if your weight goes down slowly, you're building muscle, it isn't about the number on the scale." This is true, and it's an important idea I hope everyone grasps. When you're training to lose fat, your… Continue reading Health Focus – Sometimes It Is About The Numbers
Happy Pi Day! At least in the US, with the way we express dates, today is 3.14. More than that, today is 3.1415. I know that the next numbers are 926. So at 9:26 in every time zone, social media sites are being flooded with pi posts. And images of people with pies (because of… Continue reading Pi Day Catch Up Post

The one thing creativity and… Continue reading Monday Musing: Creativity vs. Anxiety

Instead of doing the now-traditional sleepover with friends and movies and pizza, this year we decided to do a girls' night out - H, her bestie and I will have dinner at their fav hamburger restaurant, then see the newest Hunger Games - Mockingjay Part 1.

I was never much of a coffee drinker. The ex-husband had one of those 12-cup models that he could program to start at a specific time every morning, which was great because the coffee was always ready for him. I was more of a tea drinker - if I had the urge for coffee, I'd… Continue reading So This Happens Now At My House
You know that saying, "Silence is golden. Unless you have a toddler. Then it's very, very bad." Or something like that. Well, I'm definitely not a toddler, so let's say that a long absence from this blog means things are going pretty well!I have mentally started 10 or 12 posts in the last several months,… Continue reading When Silence is a Good Thing
