• Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong

    Remember that song by the Spin Doctors, Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong? We used to tease one of our friends in high school that that song was written for her because she was so stubborn. Do you have those people in your life…the ones that are right even when they are wrong? I know people that will argue with you just to do it. If you tell them the grass is green and the sky is blue, they will debate the exact shade of green and blue with you just to be the ones that are right in that conversation. You know them: the people that are always the ones…

  • Some days turn into a week

    You’ve heard the phrase, “one of ‘those’ days”? Well, that day has lasted a week for me. I’ve had one of those weeks where I am just tired. So, so, so tired. No matter how much sleep I get, it hasn’t been enough. I go to bed at 9 p.m. and I can barely drag myself out of bed at 7 a.m. #thestrugglehasbeenreal Needless to say, I’ve not done much else. I haven’t been to the gym once. I haven’t cleaned my house, or done laundry or anything. I haven’t blogged, obvi. I’ve just been tired. I don’t know what it’s from either. I did run a lot last weekend…

  • Monday

    I’ve started and trashed this post at least four times now. I can’t focus. I can’t decide what I want to write about. It’s Monday in Nashville. It’s in the 70s and partly cloudy.  It feels like March outside. It’s giving me severe spring fever.  I’m having the most difficult time concentrating. I know this won’t last until April though. Winter has to return. She’s not done yet. I want chocolate. But I also want to lose 30 lbs. I want to work out to lose that weight but I also love not having my body ache. I know people have real problems in the world right now. Way worse…

  • Welcome to my world

    I feel like I’ve done this “introduction” thing a lot. Probably because this isn’t my first blog. But because this is a new blog, and Google Analytics has told me there are new people around (haha, busted), I will introduce myself. You may be new around here and not even know what I mean by “new blog” – there was an old blog? I’ll get there…but first. About me: I’m Heather. I’m in my early/mid-30s and I live in Nashville, Tennessee. No, I am not an aspiring country music star, although if you want to invite me to your girl band – I can play one hell of a radio.…

  • Old habits die hard

    I grew up in a very, very, very small part of the world. Super small. I think the population was 271 a few years ago. Photo courtesy of Leadhill.org. It’s the kind of place that you know everyone or know who everyone is. My family wasn’t one of the most affluent ones. We did well to get by each month. If it weren’t for my grandmother, I don’t know what we would have done. I went to school with other kids that didn’t seem to have the same issues in life that I did. It was easy in that town to judge others. I felt judged. I felt that people…

  • A weekend I’ve waited for

    Happy Monday! I hope you all had a good weekend! Obviously, from the title of this blog, I did! Since I’ve moved to Nashville, I’ve been waiting for a weekend that felt like it was any other weekend. I know that doesn’t make sense so let me try to help… Think about your weekends. Do you feel at home at whatever you’re doing? Like it’s just normal to be doing whatever you’re doing, whether it’s going out with friends or even if it’s just staying on the couch all day? That’s what I’ve been looking for. For a weekend where everything felt like normal life. And this weekend was that.…

  • Here we go again…

    Believe it or not, this is not my first blog post. Or first blog. I’ve actually been blogging for years. Several years, as a matter of fact. And I’ve learned a lot. But apparently, I didn’t learn about managed web hosting so when my previous blog, When You Are Making Plans, was up for renewal…I thought, “Nah…I don’t need them to manage this for me.” Yes, Heather. Yes, you do. So, one day I went out to blog about something and………….it was gone. Everything. I’m working on getting all the old files back – I’m doing some research now. It can’t be that hard to retrieve them. It’s literally only…
