30 Days of Plexus – My take

About a year ago, my sister’s neighbor Mary mentioned to us that she was taking some kind of supplements called Plexus. I had never heard of them, but I have been approached over the years by every kind of MLM (multilevel marketing) company you can imagine. I also have a bunch of weirdo allergies, so…

Embarrassingly Behind on Blogging. Please forgive.

Wow. I just noticed that I haven’t blogged on my precious site for like eight months. I am super embarrassed by that! I love my blog. It’s like my baby. Like my baby that I stuck in a closet for eight months while dealing with other babies. Maybe this is part of the reason I…

Clearly, I’ve lost my damn mind

A few months ago, my sister-in-law, Brianne, mentioned to me that I should look into a blog she had been following:  The Big Girl Blog.  CeCe, the lady who writes it, considers herself a Plus Size Princess (PSP), and I love that idea.  The idea that we should love ourselves, regardless of our size, because…

Heart Attackiversary

Two years ago today, I felt weird.  Not terrible.  Just off.  It really wasn’t any worse than I had felt so many times before when I ended up in the ER.  So, off we went, in the middle of the night to the ER.  Again.  Surely, they would give me something for anxiety and send…
