to a deluxe apartment in the sky


So sorry. I am moving again. Although I LOVE (and I do mean L.O.V.E) the way my Mac blog looks, it has come to my attention that it is not exactly the most reliable thing. And my counter has disappeared. And you can’t see other pages. And comments are still funky.

I have struggled over what to do: stay here, go back to blogger, go to wordpress?

Thus I have decided to purchase my domain so that wherever I go, there I am.

Please visit me at my new home: questionsfordessert.com

Seriously? What else would it be?

And leave me a comment there PLEASE to let me know that you followed the breadcrumbs to my new home.

I am in the process of importing all my old entries - at all 3 blogger blogs and the Mac blog. And trying to make it pretty. So it might take me a while to get it exactly right, but this blogging thing is important enough to me to try.

So follow me! Leave a comment! Stay a while! (BTW - my favorite thing about wordpress is in the upper right hand corner: Click on Blog Info and then Random Post. So much fun!!)

Thanks for taking the hike with me!

something good this way comes

And you can find it here.

Still not 100% committed to iWeb. Unable to put it in Reader (will that drive you away?) I am also unable to find a book to help me. But visit me there.

we need a holiday

I spent this weekend doing absolutely nothing. And it was fabulous. I re-read my favorite book.I painted my toenails.
I went barstool shopping with my parents and Nathan.
I ate a pretzel and an iced coffee at Barnes and Noble.
I bought a new book at Joseph Beth.
I love 3 day weekends. How do I get more of them?

you're the one that I wanted to find

We all know that I adore my husband.

But today he gave me even one more reason.

He knows who Jordan Catalano is.

What a man!

but I know I ain't the same

So I was laying in bed this morning, between my early alarm and my snooze alarm, thinking about how awesome my life is.

I love my husband. I love my family. I love my house. I love my cats. I love my car. I (pretty close to) love my job. I truly have an amazing life

I had decided that I was going to truly love me for me. I was going to stop this charade of trying to change but failing. I was going to be fat and happy.

And then I stepped on the scale.

227.6 - from 222 2 weeks ago.


So much for the "happy" part...

or am I part of the disease

Boo blogger!

I was going to have a nice photographic post of my favorite things...complete with Nathan, jewelry, Starbucks, and shopping! Oh well.

And why such a post? Maybe to avoid the mess that has become my health this week?

Oh yes.

We went home this weekend. I was just generally out of control food-wise. And I came home to a lack of lunch-type foods, and my out-of-control spiral has continued.

Why can't I just get it together?


That comment is not a yell, but rather a cheer or a rally cry. When my co-worker is particuarly stressed, I sing (in hymn style) "Get ye together!" accompanied by claps and occassional foot stomps. Why can't I apply this to myself?

I'm not frustrated or irritated. Maybe I'd be motivated to get it together if I were...

(Random question: anyone else watching Family Feud with Al Roker? Since when has Family Feud become inappropriate for family viewing? Giving a man sex or alcohol to quiet him down? Finish the phrase "shake your blank"? What is slippery when wet? Seriously?)

and I feel done

Okay, so there were no pictures taken at the wedding. Kinda strange, I agree. But we were really cute. And I only had a small piece of cake!

Yesterday was kinda difficult, though. Multiple "when are you having kids?" questions. Several fat jokes made in my presence about people who are less fat than me. Just not the best weekend for self-esteem. Thus a variety of brownies and a cookie dough blizzard today.

But, you know what? I'm not done trying. I'm not giving up.
