It’s been a while since we’ve done this, so yeah, let’s do it!

  • I’ve been having to take sleeping pills to get ANY amount of sleep at night, and it’s totally frustrating and scary.
  • I have an insane fear of becoming accidentally addicted to any kind of pill. This is related to the first point.
  • I’m back on the weight loss wagon, again. Let’s see how long the trip is this time.
  • We were planning to vacation in California this year, but we changed out minds once we started realizing how stressful the planning was, and how freaking expensive it was getting.  It just wasn’t feeling fun anymore.  Instead, we’re gonna do a long weekend in Dallas, and use the rest of the money we were gonna spend for Cali to remodel our kitchen and make a few changes in our living room, master bath, and master closet. Yay for granite counters and pretty white cabinets!
  • I’m so glad I’m not pregnant. Can we toast to that, actually?
  • I’m already over school, and we’re only like… a week into the semester.  Gotta get it together.
  • As I’m writing this, everybody is going crazy over this Richard Sherman (Seahawks, football, etc) interview.  Am I the only person who doesn’t see the damn problem?  He was hype, he wasn’t cursing, or offensive.  What.is.the.problem?
  • Do y’all watch the show Revenge?  I’m so over them.
  • Do y’all watch Being Mary Jane? I’m so over her. But I will faithfully tune in every week to see my #bae Omari Hardwick on the screen. Because facial hair.

    I’ve had insomnia in some shape or form since I was a teenager. I’ve tried everything, but ambien. I think i’m like you. I have a fear of being addicted. But it works for those who take it.
    I’m back on the weight loss train too. I started eating at Thanksgiving and didn’t stop. SMH
    We are in the middle of planning our trip to Cali and….I want to throw in the towel and just go to the damn beach.
    I’m not pregnant either. *drinking from the bottle*
    I was over revenge last season
    Being mary Jane is on my DVR and I really don’t feel the need to watch it…..

      Revenge is actually getting better these last few episodes! And the only thing you’re missing by not watching BMJ is some eye candy from Omari.

    Just wanted to say thanks for sharing. As much as I have lots of things on my mind from time to time, I find myself obsessing over how much others will care/not care, judge/dismiss me. But I really enjoy your blog.

    I’m happy to not be pregnant as well. I heard a lot of talk about why you shouldn’t get pregnant if unmarried while growing up at church, among family members, at school, etc., but no one discussed (with me at least) the importance of birth control for married women…. I wish there were more options and answers.

      Exactly! Most pills kill your libido, spermicides can wreak havoc on your vagina, IUDs can be dangerous, and who wants to use a condom with their husband?! There has to be another answer!

    Insomnia is crazy, and I understand the whole medication thing. Some of those pills can make you do some crazy stuff and not even realize it…Good luck with the weight loss, I’m right there with ya, girlie… **raises glass in celebration of a bunless oven**…I’m not over school (yet); however, I am over some of my whiny classmates

      Girl, going to school as an almost 27yo is such a big difference from doing it as a teenager! Some of these kids…

    I had a brief bout with insomnia after Addison started sleeping through the night and I couldn’t get it together.

    No more babies for us. My husband has gotten a vasectomy. I no longer have to worry about birth control and it feels good. We are done with children and to not have that looming over my head has done wonders for us.

    Have a great semester

    Totally feel the same way about taking pills. They put too many things in there to get your body hooked. I think I watched two episodes of Revenge and then stopped. Haven’t watched Being Mary Jane yet but I am here for Mr Hardwick and that facial hair.
