Another week almost over...

Well, believe it or not, it's Friday again.  I feel like this week has gone on for forever.  

On Tuesday, I turned 27.  As usual for my birthday, it snowed.  Now I don't mind snow if I'm inside and warm.  But when I have to be out and driving, I'm not a fan.  I managed to not cook at all on my birthday, which was a nice treat for me.  I love cooking, but I'm all for a break every once in a while.

I don't know what else to write about this week.  I'm struggling through some personal stuff right now, but I don't really feel like posting about it.  If you're reading this and want to know more, just send a message.

I hope anyone reading this has a good weekend.

New year, new me

First of all, I need to say thank you to Cassie for inspiring me to start my own blog.  I used to blog a lot, and then I got out of the habit.  But I really need to do this, if for no one else than myself.

2011.  I can't believe we're at the beginning of another new year.  Sean is back to work, Aydian is back to nursery school, and I'm back to regular babysitting.  Amazing how quickly we can go from the joy of the holidays right back to the grind of everyday life.

This year, I need to make some changes for me.  First of all, I need to get my temper under control.  I blow up so easily and I need to stop.  Second, I really want to lose weight.  I've struggled with this for a long time because, frankly, I like food.  I like eating.  And I don't like exercising.  But I need to do this.  I struggle with my self-esteem all the time.  

So, to any readers that I may have, please help me with these two things.  Hold me accountable.  Encourage me.

I'll write more another day.  I just wanted to get this started and see if anyone is interested in what I have to say.
