Lessons to Learn

How are you all doing? Did you have a good weekend? I actually had a good one despite the fact it could have been a major disaster.  First of all let me say that I did not wear the bugg most of the weekend and I don't have it on this morning (bad girl!) so no screen shots.

Friday I had a major meltdown. Dave and I got in a feud and it pushed me over the edge! I think that all the emotion I have been sorting out the last few months just came bubbling to the top. I was still at work when it happened but I discovered that I could not pull it together enough to resume work so I left early.  I raced home and he was there and we had it out BIG TIME. Like move your shit stuff out and leave kinda fight.  Change your Relationship Status to Single on Facebook kinda fight. He had to leave to go umpire so I hung out with my neighbors until he got home. We had a long, calm conversation when he got home and we really got to the heart of what was going on. It was raw emotion and I let it go. I sobbed and sobbed until I could not sob anymore. Bottom line: For the time being we are going to try to make it work. We have a plan and hopefully we can work through it.

Saturday I played Wii with the neighbor kids and did some cleaning around the house. Sunday it rained so Dave and I hung out all day. We did go out a few times to run errands but it was rainy and cold so it was a good day to stay inside. I went through a chest of drawers that I am going to refinish soon and came across this picture.
Do you know who it is........? It is Ursula the Sea Witch from The Little Mermaid. This is the best costume I have ever worn. When I went out trick or treating the kids would either be scared of me or flock to be by me. What you can't see in the pic is the tentacles. We stuffed plastic bags into black nylons and then spray painted them with silver glitter. It was fun finding this picture. I want to figure out the scanner on my mom's new printer so I can scan a collage of pictures of me at various weights and ages. Until next time...


  1. Poor unfortunate souls ...
    I remember the Sea Witch from that movie....
    I've seen it probably 500 times....
    as a Pediatric Nurse back in the Era.
    What was her name? It escapes me.

    Raw emotion Katie - is that what it really takes?
    sometimes, I thin it is.

  2. Miss Devine! Of course. Ursula.
    Didn't even have to google it.
    (hope it's right!)

  3. Sorry to hear about you and Dave getting into it. Glad it's sort of worked out though. It's tough having those talks (fights) but sometimes it does take that to make things better. *hugs*

    Cute picture, I haven't dressed up in years think next year will be my year.

  4. oh my goodness. i hope you and dave are able to sort out what's best for the both of you, katie.
    and ursula is more cute than scary :)

  5. So cute Katie! I love the Ursula costume!!!

  6. Sorry about the Dave thing.
    The Little Mermaid is by far my most favorite movie EVER! I LOVE this costume!

    rockin costume, Woman.

    and hang in there.
    Im late to the party on this post...


  8. Little Mermaid was a long-time favorite here.

    Sorry to hear you are having problems with da man. Seems to be going around though. I hope you can find some peace together and probably should avoid talking to him while you're at work. Men!

  9. Sorry you had a big fight. It was good to hear "I hung out with the neighbors until he got home" instead of "I ate a gallon of ice cream" :)


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
