Step One

I'm trying to better myself... still. Right now, I've been writing a little bit (shock and awe!), and eating better. I set a very moderate weight-loss goal, and I'm hoping to blow it out of the water. I've been taking a lot better care of myself and my house. I always took good care of my daughter, thank goodness, but I feel like she's getting even better care now. When mommy's happy, so is baby. Not that she's a baby anymore! Goodness, she's growing up - but that is fodder for another post.

So, I don't really know what my point is. I'm living at the peak of something right now, and I will start sliding down one side or another very soon - to the left (arbitrarily chosen, nothing against the left or the west) I see complacency, depression, self-destruction... but, to the right, I see optimism, self-expression, self-love, and joy that I can spread to others. So, here's hoping I can tip to the right and keep this snowball getting bigger. Also, I hope to take in my skirts again before the fall.

And, because it's just cruel to post and not share my amazing daughter - I give you my gorgeous child.

And us together at the 4th of July parade.
