I called my baby a parasite. It wasn't the first time I had thought it; truth is I've been thinking it for awhile, but it was the first time I said it out loud ... not just typing it, but physically putting thoughts to words that came out of my mouth. I called his baby … Continue reading Parasite
In mid-December my work office got an upgrade - matching desk and bookshelf! No more mis-matched grey pieces for me ... no no. Bigger desk, more organized shelving, and a perfect space for some knickknacks. Obviously I brought a couple of Funko Pops! from home to keep me company, and I have this lovely photo … Continue reading It Doesn’t Get Any Better Than This
I finally get to share some news I've been holding on to for months ... I'm pregnant! I've been wanting to write about this since I found out in September. There's so much I want to say, so trying to pick and choose the best or most important parts is hard. Firstly, perfectly planned but still … Continue reading The One With the Big Announcement
The last time I was here it had just rolled into summer - long days and hot nights, and my body was so ready. Best laid plans and all. I was unprepared for what was coming at me - a very stressful summer at work, and some medical concerns that I could not answer. Navigating … Continue reading Ketchup? Catch Up.

What few came out where disjointed and jumbled. I walked away for a couple of days, only for something else to happen that I felt … Continue reading Unfocused
After posting my last blog entry I leaned back on the couch, munching on a delicious slice of pizza, and feeling exceptionally proud of myself. Truthfully, I would have been proud no matter how that entry had turned out, but I was excited to see my thought process shifting. To know it's less the flowery … Continue reading W. A. R.
At the end of January one of my best friends got married. This was easily the classiest wedding I've ever been to. She got married at the Henry Ford Museum, which I do mean to visit because it's just that cool. I took BF with me and while we had a harrowing adventure just to … Continue reading Shame Game
Mr Anderson: We accept the love we think we deserve. Charlie: Can we make them know that they deserve more? Mr Anderson: We can try. - Stephen Chbosky, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" While browsing Netflix this afternoon I stopped on this movie and they played this quote in their preview. I know this … Continue reading We Accept the Love We Think We Deserve
This week has been quite emotional. As I read more and more of Body Positive Power I feel my eyes opening more and more. Like my last post, laying it all out in one place can be a powerful way to really see the big picture. But more importantly this book was giving me pause. When … Continue reading SMRT Goals
