Last night, on a Wednesday night at 9pm, I got to pet twin pygmy goats. In my trailer park.

Miracles do happen.

Those of you that know me know that I have been obsessed with pygmy goats for years now and plan to have an entire herd. As soon as possible. BTW, if you are one of those weird individuals that does not know of the mystical pygmy goat, here is a video:

Imagine my delight when I got to pet TWINS last night!

Our neighbor, the one with the tiny pig, just bought them. They are moving out next week, so I have to take advantage of my goat time...

Me: How much weight do you want to lose?

JR: Not TOO much – I want to be somewhere in between “I think she might be pregnant” and “OMG, I bet she’s leaving her husband.”

Me: Cool – I’m going for more of “I think she’s having a midlife crisis.”

Sometimes it’s not about the number of pounds, folks.


carb cyclingUp until three weeks ago, I had been doing GREAT on my weight loss journey. 16 pounds down!!! Then I took a mini vacation and never quite got back on track. Today that is changing.

I lost that 16 pounds by doing Medi Weight Loss for several weeks and then deciding to do a low carb diet after that. Today I am going to begin a carb cycling journey. I used this calculator to determine how many...

So, I decided to start a little game with my friends. We are all creative types who long to hang out together, but live miles apart. The best thing about living far away from a friend is by far, getting snail mail.

Last week, I got a wonderful birthday package from a dear friend in Austin, Texas. It included the last two books he read, along with two drawings and a list of the music he is currently listening to. The books and the package inspired me, so I decided to write him back.

I sent him the following package:

1 drawing with my current music playlist written on it

1 handwritten letter

2 amazingly awesome photos that I printed from the interwebs


YogaPantsFeelings of self hate are something that I have had to deal with since childhood. The past few days, they have gotten the best of me. Last night I went to yoga and all I could think about was how disgusting I look.

Women like me, most of the time, we’re good. We are comfortable with our bodies and we dress them well. Then sometimes, we catch a glance of ourselves in the mirror at yoga and all of that self confidence goes to shit.
