Roller Coaster of Love

JI've been on a bit of a roller coaster lately, and while there have been a lot of ups and downs, I am (mostly) enjoying the ride.

To get it out of the way, I will start with the downsides:

I stopped working out for a while.


I just didn't feel like it. So, I didn't. I decided junk tasted a lot better than good stuff, even though it really didn't. So I ate junk, and paid the price.


I have the option of being healthy, and that is the one that makes me feel better.

There were a lot of things I stopped doing because I didn't feel like it.

I basically had an adult sized hissy fit.


Now I am over it, and able to move on. I am back to eating healthy, and exercising. Sometimes you just need to have a good, old-fashioned melt down to move on.


Many of the balls that I am currently juggling are up in the air, and its up to the fates to intervene.


Right now, lots of inertia and indecision.

My son has been recovering from a tonsilectomy that really took a lot out of him. He's on the mend right now, but it was a tough couple of weeks. I didn't want him to be in pain or feel miserable, but he did and I was powerless over it.

On a positive note, I have been incredibly creative, with new tutorials coming! I haven't had this much inspiration in a long time.

I rediscovered how much I like working out and eating healthy.


I have created some great new healthy recipes too.


My garden is blooming.


I have tomatoes,


 peppers


 and salsa ingredients blossoming.

Little Man mastered a new skill in gymnastics.

He did sparklers on the 4th of July for the first time.


We went to a water park, and instead of just hanging out on the deck chairs, I actually did stuff.

Saw a few gorgeous sunsets

Jazzfest is this weekend

What a delight to have a conversation with you about your life. OK, I didn't say much but it was so much fun for you to talk to me.
