I have 1,000,000 thoughts about today and I don’t really even know where to start but I do have one really important thing to say. Thanks Sissy. I saw her at mile 20.5 and just hugged her and cried for at least a minute telling her how I couldn’t finish (not because of my injury but for a few things I will tell you about later). She looked at me and then said, ‘Let’s do this.’ She ran from 20.5-26.2 […]

Would I do it all over again or skip over the hard part?

I had a really good discussion over a large ice cream sundae with Sarah (while I was in Thailand last month) about the last 6 years of my life and she asked me, “If you had the choice…  Would you do it all over again or choose to skip over the the hardest time of your whole life?” What did I learn?  How did I grow?  Were the lessons and growth worth the pain?  I have thought about it like crazy […]

Brinner is always a good idea.  I met someone the other day that told me that they didn’t like breakfast foods and it actually hurt my heart to hear such a thing. Speaking of Breakfast foods, Brooke now knows how to get into the pantry and bring out the boxes of cereal.  I don’t remember if I ever did a formal review on the chocolate FMWs——> STICK TO THE CLASSIC FMWs.  The chocolate= no (in my expert FMW opinion) but […]

I have received a few emails recently asking about how I am coping with my divorce (or how to get through tough times). Talking about this in a public way is always really hard for me but I figure there are many in my same circumstance and I hope to be able to help at least one other woman find peace and a way to cope with things even though it is hard for me to talk about this kind […]

Thank goodness for time.

This last weekend marked the 6 month date from the day that I filed for divorce. I spent a lot of time over the last few days really thinking about things (I have mastered the skill of not thinking about painful things really well but every now and then I can’t stop thinking about it for like 30 hours straight;) and analyzing where I was 6 months ago and where I am now. It made me realize how thankful I […]

When it isn’t convenient.

And another post where I probably over share Lately I have been really thinking a lot about how to become the person that I want to be. It happens when it isn’t convenient. It is easy to be kind to people when life is easy and going perfectly.   It is really easy to be happy when you are in Disneyland and you have a churro in one hand and a frozen lemonade in the other.  Cheerfulness comes naturally when […]
