no sleeping in...

After yesterday's post, I wanted to post something positive...

This weekend, I started jogging/running/walking with my neighbor.  She, like me, has gained a lost of unnecessary weight after getting married and while it hasn't been a big deal, it's starting to weigh on us more each day. 

You guys know about my weight struggle and the running that I've done to continue to work off the pounds.  Well, I've told my story to a lot of people.  To anyone that asks and anyone that shows interest.

While I'm not a fast walker and my husband jokes that I don't even pick up my feet, I do get out there and do it.  AND I do pick up my feet, I'm just not traveling at a high speed.

Anyway, we started this weekend and we did it on both Saturday morning and Sunday morning.  It was raining on Saturday and wet from previous rain on Sunday morning, but we did it!  It was great and I hope to continue to do it with her.  It's amazing how much a running partner can really inspire you to do it more! 

I started this whole running thing with my husband almost 1.5 years ago now and while he was kind and ran with me, he's almost a foot taller than me.  His stride is almost twice mine and when running on a track (at the local high school) he will typically lap me twice before we both reach our time goal!  Ha!

Anyway, I'm proud of my friend and I'm proud of myself!

It's going to be great to get back into this pattern and while I didn't get to sleep in this weekend, it felt great to get up and start the day with a little jog!

I'll keep you posted on how it goes...

We have a couple more neighbors that have showed interest in running with us, so that should be fun!

I also have planted the idea of running a 5k together.  She's excited but not that interested yet!  We'll have to see how the next few weeks go!

I'm just excited to shred the inches again!  Soon enough it will be pounds, just have to give it time!

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
