Dude, where's my blog? you are. ;)

I apologize for the 5+ month hiatus, readers. For those who are still following, thank you. I thought about starting a whole new blog, but I feel like my spare time is minimal, plus I weigh less than I did when I left off. ;)

So in the past almost six months, I have concluded that my 29th year of age is the most fucked up one I have ever encountered. I left my job of six years in human services to go work at a factory. Yes...I've turned on my high heels for tractor wheels. Do I like it? Most days. Do I think it was the best decision? That I can't tell you quite yet. Its a foot in the door to a multi-billion dollar company with potential to advancement. Will I advance? Time can only tell, but for now my expectations are low. I am getting the main thing I wanted out of it, which is to leave work AT work.

My five year wedding anniversary is coming up, and my husband and I are taking a step back to try to work on things. If things don't improve, we are going to end. It sounds weird, like a return policy almost. I'm scared, confused, hurt. I cry a lot. My family tells me to do what makes me happy, which doesn't make it any easier, because I don't know what that would be. My friends, well I wont even go there. I feel like a lone solider, fighting in a war. Its funny that when you need people the most, they are nowhere around. There is a special group of girls I email with on a daily basis, and its sad to say I feel like they are better friends most of the time compared to the ones I have in real life. And I've only met a handful of them in person.

A positive in the past couple months is that my nephew was baptised! He surprised me at the church asking if I would be his Godmother. Its such an honor, he is seriously my favorite person in the whole world. Smart little booger too. Here is a picture from that day:p>

I rejoined Weight Watchers for the millionth time on March 30th. So far I am digging the new Points Plus! I've lost 12 pounds since I've started. For my 10 pound/5% goal I treated myself to a pedicure. I was sad they didn't have the new OPI Shatter, but I opted for a sparkly teal color. I'm not sure what I will do once I hit 15 pounds....maybe get a massage. I could sure use one.

I'm hoping to lose 30 pounds by my 30th birthday, which is less than 7 months away. I don't usually set "lose this by this day" goals, but how fun would it be to say that I reached two 30 milestones in a year? Because honestly, I cannot wait to turn 30, and hopefully I will be celebrating in Sin City.

I will try to get my stats and all that updated soon....I just feel like I don't have time. I miss blogging and reading what all of you others are up to. Hope all is well....please feel free to drop me a line. ♥


  1. So glad to see you back! I never stop following blogs that I love, there is always hope that it will start up again. :-)

    Sorry to hear about your marriage and your friend situation. That all sucks. "Do what makes you happy" can be bad advice when all options seem crummy. "Do what sucks the least" may be better... Best of luck with everything, I'm sure that everything will work out okay. (more cliche words of wisdom for you)

  2. Jami,
    I'm so sorry to hear you are not happy right now. I know it has got to be hard but I pray you will find peace one way or another. I think you'll find that a lot of people who you thought you could turn to don't know how to handle situations like these so they tend to turn their backs in hopes that it goes away. Find comfort where you can even if it means you turn to your email buddies over your IRL buddies.

    I'm glad work is going well. Sounds like for now it might be a good fit. You don't need to bring work stress home and have that on top of what you are already dealing with.

    I'm so happy to hear you are losing!! That is awesome. I am finally 166 but I go up or down 1-2 lbs the last couple of weeks so I need to kick it into high gear. You have been doing an amazing job of that so keep it up.

    If you ever need to talk I'm here for you. I can't promise to have helpful advice but I am good at listening. You can email me anytime @

    I'm so glad you're back!

  3. You look great in your picture!

    As for everything else; cry, laugh, scream, smile, and most of all feel. I think that is the only way to find the happiness you are looking for. Best wishes to you.

  4. Thank you for the kind words girls! I WILL get through this...time will tell what my outcome will be. Just taking it a day at a time.

    Way to go're kicking ass!

  5. Love you JaJo ... never for a second think you are alone!
