It just occurred to me that I've been using Twitter and Facebook as a blog. Why do that when I have an actual blog? I've enjoyed going back and reading previous posts so I really need to make an effort to post more often. Even if it's just for me. 

It's been two months since my last post. I have to say that I am feeling so much better. Do I have bad days? Of course. I miss Matt. But for the most part, I'm doing pretty darn good. I've managed to keep myself busy and that has been a life-saver. 

What has kept me so busy you ask? Being a teacher and arts and crafts. I've thrown myself into my work trying to be a better teacher. And I think my class really benefited from this. We are as close as a teacher and class can be. 18 peas in a pod (17 kids and me). Then my re-commitment to crafting. It makes me so happy so why not do it more consistently?

It's not a bad thing either that I'm extremely focused on the Spurs and their NBA Playoffs efforts. GO SPURS GO. I noticed my mood wasn't as pleasant since they were resting for over a week waiting for their next opponent. Yes, sports affects me that much. It's a great feeling actually.

As to the current status of my empty room...well today my BIL brought an old exercise bike for me. It's actually the one my parents had when I was growing up. It's made its rounds to various homes and now came to live with me. Hopefully, I can start slowly and get healthy. For reals this time. "Slow and steady wins the race", right?

As I end my post I want to wish all the mamas the Happiest of Mother's Days. And someone tweeted that for mothers struggling with infertility it's the hardest day of the year. So a prayer to all the mamas to be and women hoping to be mamas. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Til next time! Happy upcoming week to all!!!!

Tough Enough

For some odd reason today was a very hard day for me. Missed the ex a lot. I've pretty much gotten used to being on my own. It's just on occasion, like today, that I miss his presence. Back to school tomorrow. That means I'll be back on schedule and back to my routine. Tomorrow...will be better.

Spare Room

I'm currently trying to figure out what to do with the spare room I have. I already have my master bedroom, a guest bedroom and a craft room/office. I know, a lot of space for a single gal. Keep in mind that it used to be ex-bf's office. So now I want to make it all mine for whatever I want.

Current ideas:
  • Reading area/Library
  • Exercise room
  • Split office/craft room

That's it! :( Not sure what else I can do with it. I'm leaning towards a combo reading nook/library/exercise room. Just play music while I exercise or read. NO TV or internet what so ever allowed! Sometimes I think that's why I don't do more reading.

Better start saving that money to buy my exercise machine ;)

The Oscars

Today are the Academy Awards. I didn't watch any of the Best Picture movies so I don't feel very invested. BUT, I love award shows so I am going to watch anyway. Party anyone?

Crack. Me. Up.

Something inspired me to go back to the beginning of my blogging life and I realized I really missed it. I loved reading about how I felt regarding certain topics and issues. A sort of online journal. With my life in a completely different place it's refreshing to read how I felt about things. Makes me excited to find that again.


I posted pictures and videos and stuff. Some I watched again for the first time and they cracked me up.

Life is too short to waste time being sad, angry or bitter. Although we can't always control how we feel, I need to remember I said that.


I plan on being back! Somehow I need this.

Still getting used to being on my own. It's been nice rediscovering myself.

"Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers."

How true!

Break ups indeed are hard. I think the part I'm most looking forward to is making new memories.

New adventures to come...
