Let's Talk About Me

I used to be the sort of person who would ask about you and want to hear the answer, but lately my life seems to be one long conversation about me. How are you, ask people I haven't spoken to in months. My good friends, and family start conversations in concerned tones of How are you doing?  And so each exchange begins with me gladly obliging with a long narrative about my every twitch and twinge. I am happy to talk about myself and how I feel. Maybe a little too happy....more

Chelsea Perry on weight loss, surgery and the struggles of living with obesity

College is where you're supposed to meet the people you'll be friends with for life, and I was lucky enough to meet a person like that named Chelsea Perry. We met in  journalism class we both had to take during a summer semester, and we gravitated toward each other because there weren't a whole lot of other options.

I was on a break

A surgery break.  Damn knee.  Got it all cut up and corrected.  Healing time.Still divorcing.  Still trying to figure out HOW to finish this divorce.  Move on….be done.I think there are some misconceptions — no, I don’t want to fix it.  I think I addressed that in another blog.  There’s nothing to fix.  Nowhere to go but forward.  Alone....more

Bye bye organ they tell me I don't need...

Here I sit, all broken-hearted, they took my gallbladder and since then I haven't farted.   Okay, yes, I could have been less crass with that opener. Nay, should have been less crass with that opener especially since I know I've opened my blog up to possible view by future advertisers, but, well.... It's where I'm at today.  ...more

Thankfulness Tuesday: Surgery

I wasn't going to write this post because I really don't like drawing attention to health issues, but then I had several friends remind me that the reason people like to read my blog is because I'm real and honest. Well, here's the real and honest truth friends. I had surgery yesterday. And surgery stinks.To read more, visit: http://www.georgiapeachmommy.blogspot.comXo,J...more

"Walk on Water" by Michael Ruhlman

Some books pull you in from the opening pages, grabbing your attention before you even know you’re hooked. Others build your interest over time, weaving fact and narrative into an engrossing tapestry that subtly wraps you in their grasp.A few do both....more

A year ago at this time

They played a song on the radio the other day, a tune from an album I had just purchased and was listening to on repeat (as I tend to do with most of my new music) around a year ago at this time. I've heard the song many times since then, of course, but as I was listening to it this past Tuesday - a September day with that certain early autumnal crispness in the air - I was stopped in my tracks and flooded with memories. ...more
