Therapy Thursday – Transitioning

Sometimes when I don’t blog for several days or a couple of weeks, it’s either because not much is going on and I don’t have anything to say, or it’s because I have lots of things that I want to tell you, but I just haven’t had the time or inclination to sit down and thoughtfully compose a post that…

Stupid Black & White Swimsuit

Happy Post Labor Day!! Who’s still exhausted from the weekend? *Raises hand* I had a great weekend, but man…it seems like having fun wears me out and it takes a while to recover.

(99% of the time, I either have time but no money for shopping OR plenty of money but no time. This time the planets all aligned in such…

Pictures of the Past

I found this photo whilst cleaning out from under my bed (oh mercy, the dust bunnies…so many dust bunnies) and I honestly do not remember this picture being taken. This was from a weekend getaway my husband and I took to celebrate our 10 year anniversary back in 2006 when we decided to go horseback riding (apparently I thought I…

A Battle of Jills

Hello Lovelies! Are you all surviving in the Arctic tundra that is the United States these days? Brrr!!! I talked with Amanda again on Monday and had a very productive session. We talked about how I’ve been struggling lately and what happens when I find myself in the moment of temptation, which is this: I get involved in a land…
