Upon perusing my past posts, and thinking in depth about my starting crafts, quitting crafts, baking, not baking, self helpy annoying posts, it is inherently apparent that I need a bit of a writing break, thinking break, break from my brain.

People start stuff and don’t stick it out all of the time …and the truth is – who cares! Nobody. It’s not even worth talking about.

This was going to be a plastic bottle to decorate. We didn’t decorate a ton more…and like I said, it’s really not that important!

I don’t need to tell anyone that I am stopping something or starting something…it’s not like Jennifer Aniston made an announcement that she was stopping following the Zone diet, remember that one? Or that Jillian Michaels broke down, stopped exercising for a week, and stuffed her face full of chocolates…maybe this happened …but we’ll never know and it really doesn’t matter!

Now if the Pope became Jewish, that would be important. But I’m not the Pope. I’m just a gal with a blog who over shared and I would like to keep a few things in the vault from now on.

. Shhhh…..
In fact, I will be looking through old posts and deleting a few eye rolling ones, as I choke on embarrassment, thinking of my friends reading these…you know the ones…the “I QUIT” posts.

This blog is movin on up…or rather out of the therapists chair! Well, me, that is…


With that being said, I am broadening the scope of ideas and adding to our reading fun…I will be having guest writers…coming soon to the girlyreports….I know I have promised this in the past and these people never materialized for one reason or another…just the way life goes…but I have a couple definite women writing soon and I can’t wait!

let’s get real

THEMES ARE OVER!!! I’m exhausted, spending too much money, time, with baking and crafts!

I don’t know how moms do it but no more ! This ain’t my thing.

People say I’m creative- but this isn’t for me!


Stressed and tired!

I know what ya’ all are thinking – “But they’re so cute!”


I mean, even I want to backslide on my no more baking/cute themes but
I am seriously done!

I have gotten more site traffic from crafts but OH WELL.

I know for those of you not in the blogging world, you’re like who the hell cares.

Yes, I am a good baker and yes, I am creative BUT at what cost?

The girls want more mommy. They want me to cuddle, read, play…and they probably won’t miss the creative treats and crafts – maybe my readers will – maybe the girls will – but I don’t care anymore!

I finally have the courage to say – this sucks!

I just want to enjoy the rest of this summer! Hell, I want to enjoy the rest of my life home with the girls who won’t be little for long! And I probably won’t be home forever so…..good bye Susie homemaker!

Being this blogger, baker, crafter, and especially this summer, has made me feel like I have four jobs.

Taking care of the kids, being a pre school teacher, running a bakery, and a cleaning woman ( yes, I know that is already part of my job but all of the glitter, spilled beads and gems, glue, flour, frosting, batter, crumbs, etc….has multiplied my every day chores times ten!)

I quit. Good bye themes.

BUT Let me show you the pics from fancy week, they’re quite fancy.

Fancy cookies

Decorating everything…

And this….

Don’t even ask!!!!

This week we are doing water theme…sounds very refreshing, doesn’t it? Figured if I chose water as a theme, I would be more inspired to drink water!

I hate water. It’s so boring, bland, and makes my belly feel so full – I think that’s the point of drinking water during a meal when dieting. People drink water during a meal so they’re more full, right?

I used to try that approach when dieting and the only thing that happened was a lot of peeing- followed by extreme hunger once all the water passed on through…then I was rummaging through the pantry late night! Granted I still do that …

In any case, move over blah water…I’d rather be drinking coffee (Yes. Pure, energizing deliciousness in a cup, have it iced or hot, or even after it’s been sitting out all day- I love it!

Come on Dunkin Donuts – read this blog and give me a gift card! And ah, Jessica – I just depleted your gift card to me- need some babysitting?

Just kidding – but on that topic, I watched my friends’ children for a favor and she insisted on giving me a DD gift card. Do you have friends like that? Friends who are so kind and generous, they simply radiate warmth? Being around people like that is good for the soul and I truly believe warm hearted people lower your stress.

Speaking of stress, I bought this today…


Going to try and take a few steps in the natural, calming lifestyle – I’ll try a few squirts of this and think about water – peaceful, relaxing, stress reducing water…
