Down the Rabbit Hole

Down the Rabbit Hole

I am a fairly easily distracted person, so it’s no surprise that I can easily disappear down rabbit holes that to others seem unimportant or even stupid. But sometimes I just can’t help myself. I recently went down a rather strange rabbit hole, and I’m finding it hard to dig myself out of. As a … Continue reading

Getting Organized

Getting Organized

I am by far an organized person. I tend to leave clothes piling up on my dresser all week before finally putting them away on Saturday or Sunday. My kitchen counter is littered with papers that I need to address but aren’t top priority. Every surface in my house is cluttered with random things — … Continue reading

Comparing Yourself to Others

Comparing Yourself to Others

It’s a fairly well-known fact that you shouldn’t compare yourself to others. But sticking to that is, in reality, pretty damn difficult. When it comes to running, I don’t necessarily compare myself to others, but I do often compare myself to pre-kid Cat. She was faster, more efficient, and frankly enjoyed running a lot more … Continue reading

Adulting in Vegas

Adulting in Vegas

Last weekend, my hubby and I went to Vegas with some of my coworkers and their spouses. I’m not a Vegas person. I don’t gamble, I don’t drink to excess, and I am a total introvert who hates crowds. If I were to choose a vacation destination, Vegas would not be on my list. But … Continue reading

Making time for me

Making time for me

As a full-time working mama, my life seems pretty neatly split in two segments. I have my work segment, where I get to help make decisions and put on fancy clothes, and my kids segment where I watch My Little Pony and try to stop Liam from hurting himself. But I also have a third, … Continue reading

A whole year old

A whole year old

Last Saturday, my baby boy turned 1. I felt pretty emotional at the thought of him becoming more like a little boy than a baby. He’s my second and last baby, so maybe that’s why I felt so sad. While I love watching him grow, I also feel nostalgic for the little baby who would … Continue reading

Before and After Kids

Before and After Kids

Before kids, I rarely skipped a workout. I ran a lot and thought about things like speedwork and personal records. I often worked out twice a day. After kids, I have no problem skipping a workout if I’m dragging and I have the option to sleep for an extra hour. I still work out, but … Continue reading

Get Off the Complain Train

Get Off the Complain Train

I read a book recently called The No Complain Rule. I got this book from the library because I was working on a training class at work about constructive versus destructive complaining, and my research led me to the book. And while the book was useful in helping me plan the class, it was also … Continue reading

Oh, hai…

Oh, hai…

A lifetime ago, I started this blog so I could write about running, cooking, beer drinking, body image, and other random musings. But like with many endeavors, it became a chore and I posted less and less until I simply didn’t post anymore. Also, I became a mother, which is a pretty time consuming thing, … Continue reading
