This is your life and it’s ending one minute at a time.

Sometimes I’m really good at responding to comments at Fluid Pudding. Sometimes I’m just not. Please know that I’ll try to do better. Also, I love how so many people are with me on the “Hey. Let’s drop this extra weight.” gig. How am I doing with that so far? This morning I weighed two […]

The Happiest 5K on the Planet

August 18th, 2012 · 28 Comments · Daily, Stump Stirrings

As you know (because I can’t stop droning), today was The Color Run. I started training to run a 5K in August of last year, which is when I somehow screwed up my left ankle. I was released from physical therapy in January, so I started training again. That’s when I scored three stress fractures […]

My clipper skills are TERRIBLE, but my legs are like velvet and I’m a good mom!

I have received some of the nicest comments and e-mails about my most recent post. Thanks to every one of you for being so kind. As goofy as it might sound, I’ll be returning to those comments whenever I need a bit of a lift. I decided to treat myself to a pedicure yesterday, and […]

No hug for you.

To celebrate the first day of school, I always make graham cracker sandwiches with chocolate icing for the girls. To celebrate the final day of school, we tend to go out for frozen yogurt. On Christmas morning, I get up at 5:00, make coffee, and watch the yule log on television until everyone else wakes […]

Puppies and Celine Dion rage! Also, DSM-IV 300.23 with a side of epistaxis!

I need writing prompts! I need to step away from Instagram and Facebook and hang out over here some more! Last week I tried to write every day, and it looks like I crapped out after Monday and Tuesday. Summer is so difficult for me, what with the eating like an idiot and entertaining the […]

Monday!

June 4th, 2012 · 15 Comments · Stump Stirrings

A week has passed, and what do I have to show for it? A friend and I signed on for the library’s adult summer reading program. They’re pushing science fiction this summer, but I know myself better than they do, and I know that science fiction will slow me down even more than I’m already […]

So Far, So Good

I am pleased to report that we have reached the first weekend of our summer break. Meredith has read over 500 pages this week, and has decided to devote her summer to reading the Mark Twain 2012-2013 Final Nominees. Harper has been focusing her energy on the Newsboys Strike of 1899. We’ve heard a rumor […]

Still Running Up That Hill, Kate Bush

April 16th, 2012 · 14 Comments · Stump Stirrings

Yesterday was the GO! St. Louis Marathon. I didn’t run in the marathon, but I know at least 10 people who did. As you know, I decided to start running back in September. I started off slowly with the Couch to 5K gig. I ran for three weeks (and hated/loved it) before busting up my […]

My ortho guy (because I have an ortho guy) has office walls bedecked with signed jerseys. Marshall Faulk is on the wall. Wayne Gretzky is on the wall. Even Kris Humphries is on the wall. I might not recognize all of the names on the shadow-boxed jerseys, but I *am* pretty sure that none of […]

Der Stiefel!

January 24th, 2012 · 14 Comments · Stump Stirrings

Yesterday morning I drove about ten miles south to meet a sports medicine orthopedic guy about my ankle. He took an x-ray of both legs (posterior tibial stress fracture in the left, nothing in the right!) and an MRI of my left ankle (results pending!). He also told me that I might need to think […]
