No pain, no gai…

No pain, no gain.

So I’m sitting here…. 16 days into my New Years’ Resolutions. (I started early, in hopes that it would help them stick)

All I want… is a SLICE OF PIZZA.

Cheesy, ooey, gooey pizza… with the orange grease sliding down the middle, as I fold it in half and devour it. Yup. That’s what I want. Is that so much to ask?

Of course, as I’m typing this, my mother calls me and suggests that I try out this salad-in-a-mason-jar idea. See, God always provides a way out of temptation.

Guess, I’ll make myself a salad.

Have a great day folks.

One of my goals for 2014

Bang Head Here

So… being a single mom gets tough sometimes. I’ll admit. So I’ve got this goal for the upcoming new year. I want to yell and fuss less. Much less.

Being a kid is hard enough without added stress from me right? (-_-)

My princess needs more love, more tenderness, more understanding. Life is getting confusing for her as the absence of her other parent becomes more apparent to her. I need to do a better job at showing her that when things don’t go my way, that losing my cool is not the normal reaction. That’s my logic behind it all. Not being a softy, or a wimpy parent. I mean, really. My kid is pretty smart. She can put 2 and 2 together. Why would I want her to grow up thinking that when things (or people) don’t do or go the way that I want them to, that the appropriate response is to spaz out?

So, just a bit of parenting honesty. I saw some other blogs about this too… (here , here, and here) Can anyone else out there relate?

Today I realized that I’ve really got to do something with my life. Like seriously.

I have all these ideas, all this talk… just not enough action.

I want to have a better relationship with God, with my daughter, with my family.

I want to get money as an issue out of the way.

I want to travel.

I want to start businesses.


Today. Not tomorrow.

I take action.

Welcome to the ride.
