Happy

So here’s something I have been wanting to write for a very long time: I am happy. Not just “I had a good day today!” happy, but more like, “I’ve had a lot of really good days in a row, and last weekend I was literally too excited to sleep and this past weekend my […]

!!!

Last Friday morning, I was taking my usual obnoxious expensive cab to work, and the driver asked me the most annoying question a cab driver can ask, which is, “Which way do you want to go?” (I always think they’re testing me — like, “Is she a local? Or can I get away with going […]

Those Familiar Feelings

Let me take you back in time to a week and a half ago. The weekend had not been awesome. I’d attempted a yoga class Saturday morning, and I had to leave the room twice to use the bathroom. It was especially embarrassing when I came back into the room and everyone was in side […]

Here It Is!

You see the exclamation point. You know what that means. It’s happy post time! Exclamation point! I’ve had an active couple days — “active” by my sad, low new standards — but active and happy and certainly worth celebrating. A bit of pre-excitement clarification: My stomach isn’t better. I’m still up a lot at night, […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Love

I’m here. I’m here! Maybe you thought I’d fled for a while and ditched this whole blogging thing. I thought about it, honestly. I took a few days off because I was busy before I left for Colorado. Then I was in Colorado and I refused to turn on my computer for the duration of […]

Thankful Things Thursday: It Gets Better

That’s what I keep telling myself. When things suck, it’s because they’re eventually going to be awesome again. For a very long time, I had no complaints in life. These days, I have quite a few, most of which revolve around that nice “Crohn’s” word. But I am trying so, so hard — in between […]

All I Needed Was A Long Weekend

Tyler says hi. At this time last week, I was a bit of a mess. I was Crohnsing hard, I couldn’t really eat and my night sweating had nothing to do with humidity. My fever climbed well into the 100-degree range and what was happening in the bathroom every five minutes was, well, disgusting. But […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Happy Thoughts Will Make Me Healthy

Yesterday was a pretty cool day. Your comments on my “Crohn’s sucks a little more than you may realize” post were awesome. I loved hearing all of your stories about your own battles with chronic illness, and I appreciated all the good advice and kind words. You’re the best. Love you. And on that grateful […]

This Is Love

Love was the theme of the weekend. Lack of sleep, traffic, endless hours on the highway and eating were other themes. But let’s go with the love theme, because that one is the most fun to talk about. There was a lot to love about this fantastic May weekend. First there was Friday evening’s SoulCycle […]

Thankful Things Thursday: The Adorable Edition

Hi. Why waste time? It’s Thursday, so let’s get our grateful on! (Oh, you’re new? You have no idea what I’m talking about? I know, it’s tough to figure out. On Thursdays, we celebrate Thankful Things Thursday. It’s a special time when we all share the things we appreciate, whether large — being healthy and […]
