Is Winter Over Yet?

Hello hello my beautiful readers! I hope you have been surviving winter. I have finally, at the beginning of March, begun to get the winter blues. My energy seems to have left me, I have started requiring more sleep, holing up watching more TV than usual, requiring copious amounts of caffeine to get me throughContinue reading “Is Winter Over Yet?”

Time to Spice Things Up

No blog that arose out of a breakup would be complete without the obligatory “maybe I’m ready to date again” post. Over the past week, I felt a definite shift in my energy level and my thinking toward dating and men. Now that I have been focusing on my health and happiness, and finding it toContinue reading “Time to Spice Things Up”

I’m a hummingbird!

I am very into author Elizabeth Gilbert right now. I read Eat, Pray, Love a few years ago, at a time when I really needed it, and I know people tend to have mixed feelings on it, but I really connected with it and loved it. I really related to it. Romantic failure devastates meContinue reading “I’m a hummingbird!”

Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

Happy New Year, my dear friends! I hope you all had wonderful holidays and that you’ve come out of the season energized and rejuvenated, like I have. I know the holidays can be a bit on the stressful side, with all the traveling and crowds and having to pick out presents that (you hope) peopleContinue reading “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”

Reflections (Someone is feeling mighty cheerful today)

I have noticed as of late that I have somehow, slowly and inconspicuously, managed to find my own life again, without Rich’s presence. Most days, I don’t even think about him anymore. I have found that I have much more pep in my step, optimism about the future and, in general, a very real feelingContinue reading “Reflections (Someone is feeling mighty cheerful today)”

The Good, The Bad and the Lessons From Both

I know, I know. I’ve been slacking. But to be fair, I’ve had quite a hectic month! Some of it was good, some of it was bad, but regardless, I kept moving forward. The Good Let’s start with the good. For the first time in two years, I ran a 5K! For all you runnersContinue reading “The Good, The Bad and the Lessons From Both”

Chocolate for Breakfast, Chocolate for Dinner

Okay okay. I know this week’s title does not really fit with last week’s resolutions. Occasionally, in the wonderful world of “I just got dumped by someone I love,” you will find your mind flitting from idea to idea, not always in total agreement with what you may have been sure about say, yesterday. Last week,Continue reading “Chocolate for Breakfast, Chocolate for Dinner”

Goodbye Booze, Hello Kale

This week’s theme is all about physical health. I’ve had a couple of instances over the past week that have really shaped my thinking about my physical health, and though I have dedicated a good part of my adult life to trying to keep up my health, I believe I have been coasting and canContinue reading “Goodbye Booze, Hello Kale”

A Dinosaur in Sneakers: Halloween in Salem, MA

I know I have been neglecting you, my dear readers. Believe me, it was not a conscious choice. I will get into why in just a second, but first, I wanted to say a big thank you for sticking with me over the past month and a half. I had over 200 unique visitors in theContinue reading “A Dinosaur in Sneakers: Halloween in Salem, MA”

To Sleep, Perchance to Dream

I am one of those people, like my mother, who always dreams. I’m not talking about being a person with big dreams and many of them, though I am that too, but I am a person who remembers her dreams every single night. Granted, I don’t remember them for long. As soon as the dayContinue reading “To Sleep, Perchance to Dream”
