2018 Goals: 3/25 Update

March is almost over. It is almost April! So we are essentially four months into the year. I made a lot of goals and resolutions for 2018. I'm hoping that this year is the year that there is change! I crave a change in my life. So far this year, I've been down and I've been up. I feel a lot better than I have in months, but I'm still not feeling great. I have accomplished a bunch on my list!



Goals and Resolutions for 2018 Marathon/RunI would like to either run in a marathon or a fun-run type activity. I am not good at running or walking for that matter, so that is one thing I'd like to do in 2018. I feel like training for it alone would help my health.Go to the beachAs a person who lived near the beach for 14 years of their life, I never liked the beach. I went to one in 2015 (the Bahamas) and fell in love with it. I want to go this year with Jude since he has never seen a beach (except in pictures). Create a fragrance free bath bomb recipe.I am allergic to fragr…

Living in the Past

I'm guilty of it. I know others who are guilty of it. I'm sure you may be guilty of it. 
Here's a test if you are guilty of it.  Do you ever think about how your body looked in high school or prior to a life event (marriage, child, etc.)?  Do you ever think about friends you have lost over the years?  Do you think about how great the old days were?  Do you ever think about all the fun things you used to do as a child?  How happy you used to be? How carefree life used to be? Do you ever wish you could go back to your youth or high school?
If you answered "yes" to 3 or more of those questions, you may live in the past more than the average person. 
I'm definitely guilty of it, probably more so than the average bear. I think about how I used to be thin in high school and prior to high school. Before I had my son, I weighed 30 lbs. less than I do now and I didn't have mom belly. I think about the friends I've lost over the years and how I would love to do…

Life Update: 3/5/18

Hi guys! Here's my monthly life update. Let's break this down now.

Graduate School
I'm in my last semester of graduate school. I'll have a master's degree in like... 2 months. Isn't that crazy? It's only going to be my girl, Sydnee, and I graduating from the program this semester. I've been trying to stay 1-2 weeks ahead of my homework. I haven't even made my study guide for my comprehensive exam. That's the big wall in between my degree and I. I only have 2 months to prepare for that.

Mental Health
I have not started a new anti-depressant yet. My doctor wants to fix my stomach issue before we move on to another issue. I totally understand that. I honestly have felt better now that I've started my treatments for some of my medical problems. Perhaps once I get through surgeries and my other problems get remedied, then my mental health will be better.

General Health
So I have a surgery in April. I had a head CT done. My septum is very deviated. I…

The New House: Before

We bought a house!!!

It is perfect for what we need. We are essentially two households into one house. It's hard to find something is together but separate. We did it though! It's in a good area. It's in the school district I wanted for Jude. It's near delicious food and fun shops. It's seriously everything we wanted (well, Caleb wanted a sauna).

We are in the process right now of cleaning and painting and changing a few things here and there. We are also remodeling the master bathroom upstairs. I wanted to show you guys a little bit of the remodel, but it isn't done yet and probably won't be for another week or two.

But for the difference to make a difference (ha)... you need to see the before. Please do not stalk me.

We have a garage (yay!!) and it's a mid-entry so the splitting aspect is easier. The stairs to the house (and in the house) aren't horrible compared to where we are now.

February 2018 Cancellations and Renewals

February is over. So are some of your favorites shows. Some will return for the Spring or Summer season (or even Fall)... some won't return ever again (unless another network revives it). I've been slacking on blogging... and watching television. It's the worst because I love television. Perhaps I'll binge all summer. Here is a list of the cancelled and renewed shows from February 2018!
