New House

I’ve been writing a post in my head all weekend about how hard being a working mother is, but I was too busy taking care of Ava and billing while she slept to write it.  So instead I bring you an easier post about our new house!   This house is much smaller than our […]

36 Weeks

For most of my life, I didn’t actually want kids.  Then I hit about 30 and I felt like all the planning and responsible adult things that we were doing were for nothing without a family.  Why build up a 401k and have a great career when I could just be a waitress living in […]

28 Weeks

I hit 28 weeks last Friday and had a doctor’s appointment yesterday.  The baby is measuring right on track and should be about 2 1/4 pounds.   I feel her kicking all day and every time I wake up during the night.  The doctor said that I should make sure I feel movement at least […]

Year of 2013 In Review

It’s that time again! 1. What did you do in 2013 that you’d never done before? I went to China!  I never imagined that China could be such a bird haven.  The trip made me even more of a crazy environmentalist.  It’s hard to comprehend how much humans can destroy their habitat with pollution. 2.

Vanity

I’m having an existential crisis lately where I’m asking myself what do I want to do with my life.  And then discovering last week that I’m developing a deeply etched wrinkle on the right side of my face is making it all so much worse.  I swear, I’m not vain.  The wrinkle has probably been […]

Running Inspiration

Kids in Salt Lake City really like making graffiti.  Last week I noticed during my morning run that someone tagged the sidewalk on my run and left a message that is divided over 0.5 miles.  I finally read the whole message today: “What? do you Want?” And I think, “Okay, I want to run faster! […]

Top 20 Albums of All Time – Part I

Do you have music that you’re passionate about?  I know everyone probably feels this way about music that was made when they were a teenager, but some of the best music ever made was in the 90’s. It’s hard to compete, but there’s a lot of fantastic music that has been made in the last […]

Resolutions

Do you have any New Year’s resolutions?  I have three resolutions: 1) Lose ten pounds.  I’d like to lose more than that, but ten pounds is very realistic.  A sub-heading for this resolution is to work harder at toning my arms.     2) Bike 800 miles and run over 200 miles.  Last year I […]
