Wordless Wednesday: The Other Me……

23 02 2011

This is my team. My roller derby team. It’s my away from kids, bonding with other women, smiling, sweating, slamming, falling, my two nights out of the house a week!

I’m in the bottom picture, looking like I’m holding onto my knees.
It’s quite funny, I don’t think I’ve been in the paper since I was a little kid. But I’m glad my family and friends can see it. See this crazy sport that makes me so happy. That helped lift me out of a very deep sad place. They cheer me on and then they slam me into the ground! My coach makes me want to push myself, farther than I thought I could and then still demand more from myself. It makes me glad that I’m squishy and rounded. So that when I fall down it doesn’t hurt as much ๐Ÿ™‚

I thought I’d share a small piece of myself. Without kids. Just me!


Wordless Wednesday: Something to think about…

16 02 2011

I found this quote during my blog readings and it resonated with me. In my marriage and even just in day to day life.. there is a lot of.. you did this, I did that. I did dishes 4 times, you only did them 3 times. I ALWAYS put the kids to bed etc…. So this is to help remind me that EGO doesn’t have to have a place inย  LOVE or anywhere for that matter. I can choose not to listen to its stories. I can just be.

I have a long way to go before I’ll be good at it.. but this is a start.

So much for wordless…ย  ๐Ÿ˜›

Everynight we have bath time. It started when Kurt was young, to help his skin. Now its a MUST in our wind down before bed.

Wordless Wednesday: Cloth Diapers

15 12 2010

We recently changed to cloth diapers ( finally) for our youngest, Keenin. I feel like a complete idiot for not changing sooner! The money we save, no more smelly diaper genie, saving the planet to boot!!

It was a snowball effect because I also changed to mama pads and then had the brilliant idea of “reusable toilet paper”. I thought I was the first one to think of it. Or at least be on in very few super crunchy hippy’s out there. But alas there is an unreal amount of families and individuals doing it!

More on that another day….
