HALLOWEEEN!!!!(AND KETO AND ZOMBIE KARDASHIANS)

A little peek into our day, before trick or treat- it was 35F here in SW Michigan- absolutely freeeeeezing (1-2C for the rest of you).

We rushed to get candy for the manny in the house to dole out while we took the girl into the cold.

I had exactly 35 minutes to decide what to dress up as- and accidentally turned into a Zombie Kardashian- or a Game of Thrones greyscale Kardashian– still not sure which.

Maisie dressed as a brown haired Elsa… she was over the moon. Below is a pic with her brother- who is dressed as a sort of emo Waldo who doesn’t wish to be found- but will still take your candy-

I did, however, successfully stay keto and stayed out of the sweets today- so hurray for me!

I am have been gone for quite a while-

My sister still has cancer, my mom is in a facility getting her bipolar/dementia meds leveled out, I am going through serious family problems and experiencing long term ptsd as a result of past child abuse.

Maisie is doing wonderfully! She is in Montessori school and is three now. She also does ballet/tap and adores it.

I have been on a ketogenic diet this year since July 10, 2017 per my cardiologist’s suggestion. I have also been using/wearing a fitbit charge 2, which has absolutely changed me from sedentary to active and I love it!

I am starting a vlog to chronicle my keto journey and just to be able to vent… xo

So, I posted in this over 40s Moms support group on Facebook and all HELL broke loose…

… when I posted a link to my previous blog post, about my kid’s nickname.

It was split about 70/30ish = people who understood my rant vs. people who did not.

The ones who did not were BRUTAL, and not in a ‘brutally honest’ fashion.  It was more “shut yer trap, you 1st World Problem Spouting Hose Beast”, then a polite “oh, I was simply stating my opinion- why WOULD you be offended?” when I called them (or others did) on their shit.

I had no idea that there were so many passionate nickname haters out there.  They should start a support group.

Instead, I started my own.  It’s called “Exhausted, Fun, Wine Drinking (Or Not) Mothers Over 40”  on Facebook.

Yeah, it’s a mouthful.    Here is the cover photo:

On my personal FB page, I added this preface to the description of this group:

“If your vagina is a clown car- or not- we’d really like you to join…”

I figured that would weed out the pickier people.

*devilish grin*

I can’t believe how UNsupportive people can be on these so-called “support groups”.  It’s like wading through a cesspool of murky unhappiness just to get to the tootsie pop center.

I mean, if I wanted to have a huge knock-down, drag ’em out fight, I’d go to a family reunion.
