By the time I publish this post, our 1952 brick ranch on a busy Decatur corner will belong to someone else.
We have lived here for 12 years – longer than I have lived in any one place my entire life. We moved in with two cats, a toddler and a newborn and are leaving with two dogs, a teenager and an almost-teen.
I would be lying if I said that we never thought we’d move. We never really planned for this to be our “forever home.”
Like many people, I have been consumed with the ongoing situation in Ukraine.
I am having trouble focusing on work or normal life tasks even though the conflict is on the other side of the world. If you think I am over-reacting, here are some good reasons why Russia’s invasion of its neighbor will have far-reaching consequences for everyone.
Here are links to articles and people that I found helpful, insightful and/or informative. At the end of the post, I will include links to organizations that are offering support for Ukranians fleeing the conflict and advice for what regular people can do to help.
Nope, this isn’t turning into a diet blog. Just taking a moment for something personal.
And I don’t have tips or advice or strategies or anything.
I am a sedentary 50-year-old menopausal mom who really needs to lose weight. I have no idea if this is gonna work or not. But I have tried everything else, and what has seemed to work the best is low carb.
