Five Minutes: My stream of consciousness


Hello, all. Happy Sunday. I've been hiding this week. Not intentionally, just haven't felt like writing or posting much. Lots on the mind, I guess. You know how it is. Tis the season and all that jazz.

We had a pretty busy weekend. Or have had one so far.

On Friday I went to an all day class. It was really interesting. I picked the topic for various reasons. One, it was really more affordable than many other courses I have taken. Two, I'm way overdue for a course or two or - ehem - more! I'm due 20 seminar credits by my renewal date in June, so I needed these 6. Anyway. the topic was food addictions, overeating and mood swings. As someone who has always had issues with my relationship with food, I thought this an excellent topic to sit in on and learn, not just for future clients (I do hope to work with women in the future - I think a woman having a female therapist can be a benefit, but I know many women who think and prefer otherwise, and that is what works for them - I'm cool with that, too!), but for me - myself - ya know?

I've recently started tracking my food and intake and workouts on LosinIt. An app I've had for "weigh ins" on my iPad, but just downloaded on my phone, and I like it. But I digress ...

Anyway, yesterday we went to see Disney on Ice, and last night we got our Christmas tree (what are your feelings on turning Christmas into Xmas? I am often curious as I've heard varying thought processes ... but that would be a whole other post!) and today we decorated the tree and the house. It's been fun, and I think that we could skip over tomorrow being Monday and just have more family time - well, if we could, I'd be psyched and enjoy it. Sometimes a day *off* - even if it's for school, well, it's just what a girl like me needs. Just what a MOM like me needs. To have a day where I feel like a grown up and don't have to make extra meals, wipe any bottoms or noses besides my own, and just BE.

Happy end of the weekend to all! My five minutes is up!


  1. that class sounds really interesting - wish I could've sat through it with you!!

  2. Ahhh...the life of a Mom never ends eh?
    That class sounds pretty interesting. I was thinking about going back to school in the new year to get my bachelor of nursing...but I kind of like lounging around my house in PJ's.

  3. It would be nice to do "me" things just for one day! I hear ya on that!!!

  4. I like these... I am afraid to do one because I think it will scare people. I got a play by play of Disney on Ice from a little girl at church :) Christmas is Christmas to me... it always will be... it's one of the few things I don't abbreviate!

  5. Yes! I'm with you! I would love a day where it's just me and more me. That's why I love blogging though, because for a couple of hours, I can do my own thing. Nap time is a glorious thing.

  6. Using X-mas never bothered me. I'm pretty sure I did thateven as a child, and for me, it's just out of laziness. It has absolutely nothing to do with removing the Christ out of the word. I still pronounce it Christmas.

  7. OMG, you are making me feel like a total slacker - even more than I was already feeling, that is. I am behind on everything. And I am constantly exhausted, so I don't feel like catching up, either.

    I hope you had a lovely weekend!
