A Crabby Night

Thanks for the encouragement and feedback on my last post. Not being able to exercise is difficult, but I know that once I reach my body's healthy weight, I will have the energy to do all of the active things I want to do. And the sooner I reach my goals, the sooner that can happen!


It's a rainy morning here in Maryland, but I have had a pretty nice couple of days. My boyfriend came to visit me Monday night and left this morning. On Monday night, we had a crab feast, Maryland style of course! There were crabs, corn on the cob, potato salad, beer, and lots of conversation. It was splendid.

crab night essentials: mallets, Old Bay seasoning, beer, and crabs from our local favorite!

Then yesterday B and I had the laziest of all lazy days--woke up late, made pancakes, and then proceeded to lay around alllll dayyyy. In fact, we only left the house twice--once to buy wine before dinner, and again to get ice cream after dinner!

This morning I had another family therapy appointment with both parents, and I'm happy to say it went really well. I am getting closer to my goals, and the three of us are communicating much better than ever before. I am really optimistic about my recovery.

This Saturday, B and I are driving 6.5 hours to The Outer Banks in North Carolina! I am nervous but also really really excited. We will be there until Tuesday evening.

Well, I am off to make lunch and then go babysit/hang out with my 2 favorite boys:


Have a great day--halfway through the week :-)


What's your favorite rainy-day activity? I love curling up on the couch with a good book and a cup of tea, and my kitty by my side.


  1. oh my gosh. those little boys are SO cute <3
    I am so happy to hear how well you are doing in your recovery. Optimism is such a great thing to have while in "recovery mode"
    Hope all is Well. xoxox

  2. I think my favorite rainy day activity would have to be baking. Looking out the window while I'm inside next to a warm oven is so comforting. I remember this one stormy day when I stayed inside to bake bread while watching "Knotting Hill", and it was absolute bliss!

    I also love reading books like you do. Do you have a favorite author? Mine is Emily Giffin!


  3. I love crabs! I'm a Maryland girl too. My favorite thing to do on a rainy day is cuddle up and watch movies, or bake! I hope you have a great week, you and your boy are so cute together!

  4. SO GLAD you are doing well!!! it honestly makes me so happy- you deserve it hun. Looking GORGEOUS too in those pictures!

  5. on a rainy day i'd probably curl up right next to you on the sofa ;)
    or watch a good movie with you!

  6. Your boys look so cute.
    For some reason I got jealous about your rainy morning. It's so hot here in Athens
