By the wayside...

I often wondered exactly what a "wayside" was, today I found out.

way·side (wsd)
n.
The side or edge of a road, way, path, or highway.


Fall by the wayside
To fail to continue; give up.

You know much like my failure to continue to update this blog in a timely fashion.

There have been some other wayside fallings lately, that I have up until this point kept to myself, but now feel confident enough in my self to start sharing about them. Some are good, some are bad, either way they are what makes up me right now so I suppose it is what it is and God put me on this path for a reason, regardless if I know the purpose right now.

I suppose it needs to be said that a very important relationship in my life has fallen by the wayside for the time being and I hope in time that a cross road is met and we pick the other back up. Right now it has just led to a bit more confusion and heart ache than I was planning on dealing with at this point in time. This is one of those things that all you need to know is that two people got hurt and went their own ways, anything more is just torture to everyone involved.

Blogging has obviously fallen by the wayside, or in the ditch, or off a cliff, I need to make this not the case as this is MY SPACE (not to be confused with that weird social networking site prior to Facebook) but literally MY SPACE ON THE INTERNET to be who and what I am. (See how I used literally correctly there in that sentence I truly dislike it when people use literally wrong.) Either way I do need to blog and I do need to get some of my thoughts on paper or the internet or whatever.

Photography has taken a stumble along the wayside, just a slight stumble nothing huge and will be back as I love taking pictures I just haven't had anything hit me lately. I take a couple of shots here and there but nothing spectacular that needs to be shared. Photography takes time and that is just not something I have had lately.

Naps and Coffee, one due to the lack of time I have and the other due to I keep forgetting I poured it and by the time I remember it is icky and cold. I do not like cold coffee, as much as I have tried I just don't like it. One would think that if naps went away that coffee consumption would increase. Not the case with me, sadly this makes for a very nonfunctional Re at times.

So with all this waysiding you would think that I have time to just run around and frolic and play and be merry right?? Yea... No.

First off it doesn't matter how much time you have on your hands there is always something to clean, wash, dust, or vacuum when you are a single mom to a 14 year old and a puppy.

Secondly you saw where I said puppy right?? Did you know that is almost impossible to teach a puppy to put his toys away?? But look at him he is just so cute you can't help but smile and have warm fuzzies when he is around, so I suppose that is a trade off for the dog toys being EVERYWHERE.


Thirdly (giggle) I joined a gym here in OBX called Knuckleup. It's not just any old glitz and glamor gym, but a gym where I feel at home and have made some AMAZING friends. I probably could not have gotten through some of the waysiding up above without them. I am there 2, sometimes 3 hours a day except for Sunday's, I have dedicated myself to this and to getting healthy. It is not about losing weight or dieting right now (although being smaller is certainly a perk I am looking forward to) I just want to be a better me on the inside and out. It takes a lot of hard work and some days I do feel like just going back to bed and hiding (kinda like today) but come noon I will put my wraps on and my stinky boxing gloves and head to class and when that hour is over I will feel better for it. Getting there is half the battle.


So now you know ... now everyone knows. I can't wait to see where this journey takes me.

Did I mention I am also training to run a 10k.... (I think I have officially lost my mind)

Ok, my computer has taken on a life of its own. If this is a repeat comment, my apologies.

You have not lost your mind. The exercise is fantastic! Even if you don't have time for naps anymore hopefully it's helping you sleep like a rock at night.

I'm actually looking forward to the 10K, I think it's going to be fun.

Maybe i've lost my mind too...
