not a week in review…

Okay, so I know I’m a little late to the link-up party that Meghan of Clean Eats, Fast Feets (I just automatically typed “feasts” there…Her food pics always make me hungry.) hosts on Mondays, but… I worked almost 90 hours the last two weeks. Which is a pretty big change from the 25-30 hours I’ve… Continue reading not a week in review…

week in review: I’m really not Scrooge, I promise

I’m linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for a way to feel like I accomplished something this past week. I know it’s the holidays, but, um, I didn’t really do anything special for it.

That’s not good enough for me. Instead of floundering randomly, I want my life to have more focus.… Continue reading changing my focus

So, I’m supposed to be training for the R2R Grand Canyon hike in May.  I’m not.  Not really.  I mean, I’m doing some light strength training twice a week, but that’s it.  (Confession:  I’ve done it twice so far.  Today will be three times.)  I’ve figured out what the problem is: (What I can’t figure… Continue reading oops

drama causes insomnia: you know that, right?

This is a true statement:  I don’t like drama.  I just want to live my life, go to work, do my school stuff, hang out with friends and family, follow my own interests, and mind my own freaking business.  I don’t like upheaval.  I don’t like chaos.  I don’t like conflict.  I’m not a fan… Continue reading drama causes insomnia: you know that, right?
