My Journey Through Postpartum and Life After I Kicked It's A$$!!!

Ha!  Look at O’s expression.  We had our annual Christmas party with a group of friends at Morton’s on Saturday.  It was lowkey and fun.  I loved seeing all the newest additions to some of the families.  I wasn’t feeling well, because I was super bloated (Yep, the hormones were acting up).  I am not even joking but I literally gained 4-6 lbs of water in two weeks.  It’s slowly going away and I could feel my arms are less heavy.  People, this is not a joke.  It’s for real.  My mom was even like “Oh Dohl (nickname) I think you need to exercise your stomach.”  Ouch.  But today, she acknowledged she thinks I have major hormonal issues.  Not to mention the pimples again.  WTF… who goes through puberty at age 37.  What is this?  This is cruel.  A cruel, cruel joke.  Haha.  I didn’t even have pimples when I was a teen.



Christmas 2012

this was our spread… my meat was cooked too much. And yes, we all asked for A1 and Tabasco. Such FOBs.

Thank you to the Lee’s for setting up the Chrismas party again.  You guys did a great job.

I’ve been passing the days in front of two computers writing paper after paper.  The funny thing is, I enjoy it.  I was so intimidated about doing research, the APA format, and everything that goes into writing a paper, but it’s been fun and rewarding.  I’m slowly starting to learn about balancing life with life’s stressors.  And I’m able to prioritize what’s important to me.  The A’s are great, but my time with my lil munchkin, husb, friends, and family are more important to me.  But I’m a thoroughly enjoying the journey of being back in school.  There are moments of feeling utterly overwhelmed, but even that feels good.


Life’s not always calm and serene like beautiful pictures…

They say “Two Is Better Than One.”  I don’t know if I believe that anymore.  Less is more sometimes, no?

I’ve been having lots of single and married friends ask me if getting married or being married is worth it.  For me, I think there has been moments of undoubtedly thinking “two is better than one.”  But I think the reality is… the grass always looks greener on the other side.  There are moments where I have felt marriage is overrated.  This is the honest truth.  Kudos to those who say marriage is the best thing that ever happened to them.  For me, marriage hasn’t always been easy or fun.  It’s made me dig deep into myself and be honest with my feelings. It’s made me face my truth.

It has been both joyful and lonely.  Sad and happy.  Is it worth a try?  Sure.  I think the possibility of finding your soulmate is out there. But is “two always better than one?”  No.
