3rd Place in Survivor

For the last ten days I have been playing a game of online Survivor that Josh hosted via Facebook. I’ve gotta say, he made a great Jeff Probst. The game was SO much fun – full of twists and puzzles that made things really interesting. I met new friends, got to know old friends better, found 3 hidden immunity…

Just Rambling For a Bit

My year-long daily blogging project is winding down – I started January 7, so there’s about a week and a half left – and I’m ready for a break! It’s like senioritis but for blogging. I can see the finish line! Just gotta push through for a little while longer to get there. I am planning to…

This Is Your Brain On Sleeplessness

Josh and Jordan are downstairs shooting next Monday’s video right now.  My scenes for the week are finished, I’ve got chicken soup simmering on the stove, and a pain pill in my system making me the slightest bit woozy and loopy.

One Woman’s Boredom is Another Woman’s Luxury

I had enough energy today to get lunch with my family and then watch the football game with Josh’s family! It was a really nice – it’s not often that I get to see every member of my families in one day anymore! But man, it wore me out. I’m staying up to take a pill at…

Drop of a Hat

I wish I understood why I suddenly started feeling so rough after a pretty good week all last week, and why it’s lingering so long. I was being so healthy & proactive last week! It’s frustrating that my health can turn at the drop of a hat like that and I can’t even pinpoint what…
