January Blues

I just need to get these out of my system so I can move onward and upward...

If it's going to be this cold, we could at least have some snow with it.

Christmas is over and I've already forgotten what I got.

I've broken three of my new year's resolutions already.

My yard thought Spring was coming because of the warm period we had and now all of my new buds are gonna get their little selves frozen to death.

Christmas bills are starting to come, even though I swore off credit cards two years ago????

I had to uncheck all of the Christmas songs on my iTunes so they won't play and make me depressed.

I'm on a diet, so I can't eat my way to happiness.

Are you blue? Get it off your chest too!


  1. Ohhh! The winter is NO FUN! Perk up!

  2. i'm just depressed that i have totally checked myself out of work mentally, but have to keep showing up to get things done until the baby comes. i seriously can't get out of bed in the mornings.

    your crayon illustration cracked me up, though!

    and oh my goodness... we're going to have to discuss lost every week together!

  3. I so hear ya about not eating away the blues! Try fudgesicles -- only 100 calories and such a delicious treat to fit into any diet!

  4. Yep, I'm in a funk too! It seems to happen each January even though I go into the month on a high (my b-day is the 5th) and have great hopes for the rest of the month. Never quite pans out like I picture it though.

    Hope you start feeling better soon!!

  5. I'm feeling the post-Christmas let-down, too. And I'm ready for warm weather!

    If you start a petition to Mother Nature for warmer weather, I'll be the first to sign :)

  6. I'm feeling the same way! It seems to happen every January :( I want the cheery happy feeling of Christmas back - HA!

  7. I personally think you look perfectly beautiful the way you are--no diets necessary! So I say, go have yourself a hot fudged sundae and smile!

  8. January is SO awful! I've been having to remind myself that it's just that time of the year & things will get better! They will!

  9. I've got the feb blue! happens every year! I just can't wait for march and the spring time! warm weather and the birds to sing!
    hang in there!

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …
