If in the depths of night and loneliness, all that you supress comes back, if you truly cannot forget or move forward then maybe all the distractions aren’t worth what trying to forget…


Mixed emotions

My mind is in a whirlwind today. I can’t grasp the source of my emotional rollercoaster but that probably wouldn’t stop it anyway. Not sure what in store for tomorrow but I really don’t care anymore….

Family bowling

Family bowling on post was awesome. I did pretty good considering my 1st time, kids def surprised me and did awesome with great attitudes. Till its time to leave and they’re their naturally annoying selves -__- slight panic attack at the bowling alley but I made it 🙂 After we went to see army planes it was really cool. I love history!! Time to wooosaah and figure stuff out.

Your Life As A Play

Love this, amazingly true

The Belle Jar

You think that if you get all the window dressing right then everything will be fine.

The floral-patterned dress, the beat up cowboy boots, the vintage leather jacket.

The carefully tousled hair, the oversized sunglasses, exactly the right shade of peachy-pink lipstick.

The golden tan, the throaty laugh, the full smile.

The way the sun hits you from behind, so that you’re sweetly backlit in the late summer afternoon haze.

The books on your shelf. The distressed furniture. The tacky knick knacks you wouldn’t have been caught dead with five years ago.

The antique china tea set your grandmother gave you.

The mint green bike you bought second hand.

The midcentury modern buffet you found on the street on garbage day.

The smart, funny, handsome husband.

The smart, funny, precocious child.

The off-beat, artsy career.

The morning yoga classes you teach, the playlists you create timed perfectly with the flow…

Another day in my life

So we’ve been in Tennessee just shy of a week. On a spur of the moment whim idea. Cause I’m bout that gypsy life 😉 and I must say it was a great idea. Its very relaxing and SUPER quiet here. No where I’d want to live but a definite vacation area. Went to the Dunbar Caves yesterday, loved the history and the hike was beautiful. Baby boy got bit n today looks like Tyson hit him so that sucks but hopefully it’ll go done with the meds I gave him. Long night with the hubby and that shoulder of his, between his pain n lack of sleep combined with both our stress levels we’re an irritable mess. Finally got some coffee today so I’m happy bout that. We’ve decide to extend our trip another cpl days for a few reasons. 1. People are as unreliable as always. 2. So soothing and hate to return to reality. 3. Go bowling with the family tonight!!! I will be sad when we leave though I truly have enjoyed our visit, even though I did expect to see someone, fairy godmothers hospitality has been exceptional and that means a lot to me. There are still genuine ppl left who really just wanna be family without drama or expectations of something.  We’ve gone through so much in this short summer. We’ve loved, we’ve lost, we’ve fought, and learned lessons some obvious and some new surprising ones. But guess what?!?!? We are still a family and together and haven’t been broken yet, so cheers to us!! This year we have some new and interesting adventures in store and I’m ready. It time for me to stand up and do for me and mine. And whoever else decides they wanna be down for the cause..lol.. which is HAPPINESS!!!

I am starting a blog today as a way to vent and constructively analyze my life. I feel as if the crap that happens to me on a daily basis, sometimes multiple times a day should be in a reality show. Just not starring me, ya know? Any normal person would of ran away or an addict by now but I’ve done neither so cheers to me 🙂 Enjoy reading my blog.
