Short weeks are so fun! I don’t actually have a short week because I have just as many posts to write and a podcast to record, but everyone else has a short week so I actually have people to hang out with in the daytime! It’s wonderful. Human interaction is wonderful. I usually only get Jackson (dog) interaction plus the daily solicitor trying to either get me to save the planet OR rob me. It’s hard to know which one you’re going to get when you open the door. It may be time I get a ‘No Soliciting’ sign, eh?

It’s officially fall here in Colorado right now. We’ve had a weirdly HOT fall but now it’s finally snowing and making me remember how much I hate being cold. Yesterday I was coaching at the gym and the gym was colder than the outside. Meaning I was shivering for 4 hours straight. That can’t be healthy, right? Luckily, I just bought THE WARMEST COAT of the season (that’s 50% off right now!) and I will be wearing it everywhere I go! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – coats and jackets are the only thing keeping me living in Colorado as I quickly age. Who likes being cold!?!

I think my new weekend hobby during football Sundays is going to be hot tubbing. Our hot tub is suppose to come in a couple weeks and I will spending my weekends there from now on. Who needs a hobby when you can spend your Sundays eating brunch with friends then in a hot bowl of water?! The rules of waiting 30 minutes after I eat doesn’t apply in my house! Screw you, childhood memory rules!

People keep listening to my podcast and reminding me how weird I am. Which I get. And I’ve gotten that my entire life…from anyone I’ve ever met. But at the same time…have you ever considered that YOU are the weird one, and I’m just the completely sane one? Something to ponder over while you munch on these trifles. I guess a crazy person would say that, huh? I’m about to record a podcast related to why children scare the absolute hell out of me and why I don’t want one exiting my womb, and I think I may lose about 50% of my listeners. Because I’m the weird one for having a deep fear of raising a serial killer. Sure, I listen to murder podcasts on repeat, and sure, I should probably stop doing that because I’m creating completely irrational fears. But I’m a realist, okkkkkkkk!? I really need to record this podcast ASAP. Aka – get my therapy session in.

Ok, I have a tax meeting to go to. Booooooo. I’ve now talked about soliciting, babies and taxes. This rain/snow is really affecting my mood. Or wait, is it effecting? I hate that one. And the dictionary does sh*t of a time explaining the difference. I swear I’ll perk up the next few days. Meaning on Thursday when I have a post-workout mimosa holiday buzz. That’s gonna be a great day.

    I can’t wait for that podcast. It’s going to be the best 🙂

  2. Magda says:

    I’m single and kidless… and the kid question usually closely follows the “why are you single/why aren’t you married”. Because obviously it’s all my fault that I’m neither married nor a parent. Just venting. 🙂

  3. Meg says:

    I’m also irrationally terrified of giving birth to a sociopath or psychopath or serial killer! I may have to bite the bullet next year but I’m still legit concerned. I’ll make hubby raise the deranged one.

  4. Stephanie says:

    I knew I didn’t want kids in high school and ever since then, I make sure everyone within 10 feet of me knows that I don’t like kids and sometimes make remarks like “You can leave them in the house alone when they’re 6, right?” or “I think kids should be able to drink liquor whenever they feel like it” just so they think I’m insanely unfit for motherhood. No one has tried to persuade me so I think it’s working. Bonus: no one asks me to babysit either. win-win.

    Or, you could lie and say your baby maker isn’t working and it’s very rude of them to ask then burst into tears. That one works 100% of the time. so you know, you have options. just sayin.

    My husband and I are close to 40. We constantly get comments on how young we look. My husband’s response is always “we don’t have children!”

      hahahahah yaaaaas! so incredibly true!

  6. sanantoniogirl says:

    Juli, from your last podcast, I just wanted to say that I totally know what cat poster you were talking about — the one with the cat hanging from a clothesline – the motivational one – because I had the same one!!! The caption was something like, “Hang in there, baby” LMAO!!! Thanks for your continued pep talks and motivation to stay focused on the diet while traveling!! xoxo Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. juli says:

      hahahah YES that’s the one!! i remember that in many school classrooms. so weird

  7. E says:

    OMG I never comment I just listen to all of your podcast and stalk your blog. I have been following you for years through all your ups and downs and I relate to you so much when it comes to being the only child and the pressure of people wanting you to have kids. I also have a dog and no plans of having any children due to the same fears that you have I can’t wait to hear your podcast on the whole children subject.

    1. juli says:

      well i just recorded the podcast and it will be up tomorrow!! feeling all the anxiety after talking about it for 40 minutes hahahaha

  8. Madhurika says:

    Hey, Juli, the No Bake Pumpkin Pie Gingerbread Trifles look soooooo good!!! I’m actually willing to try this sometime this week. It looks really easy and not that time consuming. I’m a high school junior and so busy with work and I feel like I can take a small break and make these for my friends, family, and teachers. I feel like this will be great item for bake sales!

  9. Jenny says:

    I’d love to make this in a large baking dish to bring to my aunts for Christmas! Would I need to alter the recipe at all? What would be the best way to do this?

    1. juli says:

      not sure, i haven’t made a large one
