I Truly Despise Exercise 28

I Truly Despise Exercise

During any of my periods of fitness in my life – whether it be training for a distance race or getting thin for my wedding –  I’ve never been able to fully embrace exercise. (SIDENOTE: Exercise is one of those words I never EVER spell correctly. I always have to see the red squiggly line and correct it. But just then? In that paragraph above? ALL ME, BABY.

And So It Begins…(Again)

Anyone of you around this area (As in…my blog, not North Alabama) last Spring probably remembers a little musical that took over our lives called Seussical. Although E spent his entire freshman year exploring the world of Theatre, the last few weeks before that musical was my baptism by fire. I found myself doing things I never knew I could do: Painting sets, pinning costumes, and doing makeup. I learned new vocabulary and terminology. (Note: A “costume parade” is not an actual parade of kids in their costumes around the school. If you tell your drama kid child you thought...
