  • A week from today is my 37th birthday.  It occurred to me that I am officially going to be in my "late 30's" as opposed to my "mid 30's".  That's weird and I don't like it. 
  • I have completed week 4 of Crossfit and I love it and I am significantly stronger (physically and mentally) because of it but due to the fact that I eat as hard as I work out, I haven't lost much.  That's also weird and I don't like it.
  • Today was a high of 77* and since a week ago was 102* it feels like it's Alaska all of a sudden and I turned the heater on in my car this morning which was actually kind of ridiculous.
  • My hair has been totally f'd by pregnancies, coloring these last two years, and age.  It's now naturally curly/80's hair band-ish but I straighten it so for all intensive purposes, I have straight hair.  Except for today.  I wore it right from the shower to William's soccer game.  In 17 years that we've been together I have never once worn my hair anything but straight.  I asked Chris if he noticed anything different.  He looked at me and said, "Is that a new sweatshirt?" about the sweatshirt I threw on at William's game that I've been wearing for the last 12 years. 

  • It's Friday - again.  The weeks are flying by and I'm unsure if I like that.  I desperately want to get out of this fighting all the time stage but I don't want the years to go by so quickly like they seem to be.  I'd like to slow things down a bit.  I'm likely saying this because I have three silent sleeping kids at the moment...
  • Today is the 3rd anniversary of this here little blog.  I am so grateful and appreciative of each reader.  I think I was born not only to be Drew, William, and Lauren's mom, but I was also born to be a Real Housewives junkie, a baker of crap that makes me have to do shit like Crossfit, and a writer without a publisher.  Couldn't be happier about any of that.

    1. I'm going to be 40 in about two months. Not liking that much. But ya know, it's really not that bad. Most of the time I don't even notice my age. But I can't tell you not to worry or think about it, because our situations are a different. You have three little walking and talking life-clocks that are quickly and constantly ticking the days away. As you see them grow and change so fast, it must be like an ever present reminder of your own life passing....jesus christ, I'm depressing myself now. I'm sorry. I'm going to just stop talking.

  2. Wow! Your hair is so curly!!! I remember Jeanna Allen saying that one summer her straight hair went curly and it's been like that ever since. Crazy.

    Happy birthday!! I turned 37 again this year. Long story.

    Emma makes me feel old. How dare she get older so damn fast!! Damn kids.

    Good job on not dying in Crossfit! I can't even deal with the idea let alone actually doing it.Ugh.

  3. How is it possible you're in your late 30's?? You look like you're in your twenties! That's so crazy about your hair! I swear mine is the same way since having M! I doubt Nate notices it either :) #damnhusbands I found a Crossfit gym and I'm SO ready to kick ass at it!! Hope I can do it! Happy 3 years again to you! XOXOXO
