My Favorite Books – The Classics

Happiest of Fridays to you all. I’m currently nursing the world’s worst head cold. My super giving Soldier blessed me with this bad boy…and everyone else in the house. So I will be cuddled up with a book till the sinus pressure related ringing leaves my ears. Since my Facebook feed is blowing up with people listing their 10 most…

Wednesday Wanderings

Happy Wednesday citizens of the blogosphere! I just realized it’s February. {am i the only one who stumbles from month to month and only realizes the transition a week in?} It’s February, The Peanut turned 19 months today, and I haven’t washed my hair in 3 days. But my taxes are done which surely counts for something. We’re gearing up…

The Cadet’s 1st Diabetes Anniversary

On the 11th of January, The Cadet celebrated his first Diaversary! (which is cheesy Type 1 Diabetes code for the anniversary of diagnosis) We’re not the type of people to make big brouhahas about most things in life, so where other T1D parents throw parties and celebrations, we spontaneouly went to have frozen yogurt. {seriously though, we don’t do birthday…

My {almost} Fitness with Barre3

If you had told me 2 years ago that I would be singing the praises of a fitness routine I would have {silently} mocked you. But here I am, telling every mama I can find that they should try Barre3 online workouts. And here is why… There have been 2 {and only 2!} positives to come from my horrific pregnancies.…

Wednesday Wanderings

Happy Wednesday! I hope you’re all doing well. We’re still battling the plague. {less of a biblical plague and more of a medieval plague} It’s a looong cruel beast that leaves you utterly wrecked with ear, nose, throat and lung ailments. Not exactly sure what virus has taken us down, but where going on a month with someone consistently sick.…

My Word for 2014

Tired of resolution posts yet? Whelp, here’s another! It’s actually less resolution, more focus driven. I don’t have issues with resolutions, I actually am not too terrible at keeping resolutions. {honestly that has more to do with setting low expectations} I actually set resolutions in 2011 and stuck to them pretty well, in 2012 and 2013 I didn’t even try…

currently reading

I read…A LOT. Especially when I’m stressed. I spent the last half of September stressed (and the first half of October for that matter)  so I read even more than I usually would. I thought I’d give you a list of what I’m currently reading and what I’ve plowed through recently. Currently reading Insurgent by Veronica Roth. Insurgent is a followup…

on finally figuring myself out

Just over a month ago I had one of those rare light bulb moments that ends up being life-altering. I figured out that I am in fact an introvert. I’m assuming most people are fully aware if they are introverts or extroverts. My Soldier is a text book introvert. That man lives in his head. Outwardly, My Soldier and I…

quiet spaces

My Soldier has been gone for 3 weeks. I talked to him for the 1st time today. I got to wish him a ‘Happy Veteran’s Day.’ It made my heart happy. I’ve spent 3 weeks not really talking, doing my best impersonation of a recluse. {a recluse with a caffeine addiction and short temper.} In all of my time hiding…

random thoughts on where i am now

Nothing profound, motivating, or inspirational today. Today I kind of just needed to vent to the vague world of the Blogosphere. So just some random thoughts on where I am now. Stuff that I’ve been thinking about for a while. My Soldier leaves in just under 2 weeks for 7 weeks. We’ve been spoiled to have a ridiculous amount of…
