Father’s Day and just random updates.

Hello guys! It has been a little while since I posted a blig. And, I know, I have zero excuses …other than I have given myself a lil Summer vacation along with my kids ending school. Which basically means I have been trying to put my phone down more, giving myself time for gardening and…

Allergy update!

Hey everyone! I just returned from the allergy appointment that I had mentioned in my last post. There wasn’t much time to write anything during my visit, however. I was kinda busy with swelling and needles, so. 😂 It was fun. Sarcasm. I honestly wasn’t sure what was going to happen during this visit because…

Needles all around

Hey WordPress! 🙃 How are you guys? I hope well and experiencing better weather than up here in Massachusetts. We have had some frigid weather the past few weeks, then this Monday we had a pretty big nor’eastah that dumped the majority of the snow in my yard. Ugh, I swear, my town is in…

Update and Halloween 2020

Hey Everyone! Just wanted to say hello and check in since the end of Sober October. Hello!! Excitedly, I broke sobriety on Saturday night with the best zombie sangria that I ever have made.

Sober October Journal- day 28

Hello everyone! We are ever creeping to the finish line. Yee! I am just sitting down from my lunchtime yoga session. I saw the yogi I follow on YouTube Adriene, had a fun Halloween themed class that she posted yesterday so I went with it; which Halloween seems to be the running theme all week…

Hello WordPress friends! Wooo! We are so close to the end, canya feel it!? Actually, I have had a lot of fun writing during this challenge as often as I have, keeping accountable, so thinking that after Saturday this all goes bye bye is sad. 🙁 I know, it isn’t like I can’t keep journaling…

Sober October Journal- day 24

Well, if there was a day to have a drink to shake off stress, it would be this one. I got woken up this morning by a phone call. It was from my eldest sister in Italy. She was calling to tell me that my dad was being rushed to the hospital with chest pains….

Sober October Journal- day 21

Hello guys! It is day 21, Sunday, and I am feeling great! Going strong still not drinking, continuing being active and conscious portion control when eating.

Sober October Journal- day 19

Hey everyone! Nineteen days! Woo! I am getting closer to the Sober October finish line. If you are just jumping on board, I started the challenge earlier than October 1st. It just felt better in my mind to start the challenge on a Monday (9/28) versus that Thursday the 1st. Obviously I am neurotic. 🤦🏻‍♀️…

Sober October Journal – day 17

Hi! It is currently day 17. Doing great. Still haven’t drank a drop of alcohol, have been conscious about portion control, and exercising 3-4 times a week. I weighed myself today.
