A new year, a new blog name, a new outlook.

I was too centered on weight. Weight. Weight in this blog. It was bordering on obsessive and it was utterly out of balance. Which is one reason, I feel that I went so gung ho then crashed and burned so hard.

It overwhelmed and chased me away. I have wanted to blog so many times but felt as I I couldn't... As if I had no right because I wasn't on track, wasn't losing, wasn't obsessed. I am not going there any more.

My watchword for 2013 is Balance. There is more to life than weight. And yes, it is something I will still talk about and I have to. I have to address it and I have to get back on track. But it is no longer going to be the sole focus of my life or this blog.

Just a quick abut the weight issue... In the last two years I have managed to gain about 60 pounds. I am not happy about it. I am pretty fucking mad at myself and I plan to turn this around. More on that, later.

I decided to change the name of my blog to reflect my new attitude of more balance. And because it is a fun name. I am a housewife. And I am madder than a hater so it seemed to be a good fit. I thought about starting a new blog, altogether and deleting this one but ya know what? I have put a lot of work into this one, it is part of me, it contains part of my history and looking back over it can serve a purpose to me so I am going to sojourn on as it is.


Time for a new header and background. I keep Icy Nails mobile friendly and wide appeal friendly, a little more pro. This is my personal space, I am going to have some fun with it. :D 

Life is marching on... Sabryna, surprisingly enough is still with us. She is very old and has a tough time getting around but she can still walk around, she can go outside to do her doodies and she is eating well and, as long as she gets her daily Advil, doesn't seem to be in too much pain. We are just keeping her comfortable and happy and loving on her for as long as she is here. If she makes it to Spring, I'll be shocked. We're still in the condo... We can't move Sabryna, she wouldn't take well to a move, physically and her eyesight is so bad now that she would have a really hard time trying to adjust and find her way around.

Thanks to William I have the cold from Hell. He had it over Christmas and now it is my turn. Urgh! I am miserable and pissed to the gills! I hate being sick.

We took all of the Christmas decorations down, today. I felt like shit on a cracker and the last thing I felt like doing was un decorating the house but it didn't take too long and now that it is done, I'm glad that it is. The house looks so bare and empty and kind of sad. And it is echo-y in here. It feels like that for a day or two after all of the sparkly stuff comes down.

Okay I'm going shopping for a new background and header.


  1. Hey woman, glad to see you back at...this will be fun. Balance...It's a good word.

    1. We'll see... LOL

      I think so. I need to find me some. Fo Shizz. :D

  2. I like the new name! And glad to hear Sabryna is still hanging in there.

    I'm looking forward to having some balance in my own life as well this year. Let's do it together!


  3. I like the new name! And the broader focus - I totally agree that too much focus/pressure on that one thing is rough.
