Moderation in All Things

The hand of God is such an amazing thing. I finally declared I was taking control of my life and actively working to lose weight and be healthier. I bought a scale (or, rather, requested that Paul buy me a scale), bought a new scale that worked, even if I had to accept that my […]

I Went to Sleep at 2 am

I went to sleep at 2am because I crawled into bed at ten to two. I crawled into bed at ten to two because I didn’t get home until sometime after one. I didn’t get home until sometime after one because I was the last person in our carpool to be dropped off and we […]

Just What the Doctor Ordered

I’m sure it’s because he still sucks his thumb, but whatever the reason that kid has an iron immune system. Sick days are so rare with him. Today is the first time all year that he’s stayed home sick. […]
