Well, hello lockdown #3. You sure have worn out your not-so-warm welcome already and you haven’t been here that long. You are taking away our livelihood, happiness and general sense of hope as we battle what now feels like an endless pandemic. I’ve been in a slump, y’all. And it hasn’t been pretty. My lovely … Continue reading Attitude Adjustment
I love salsa verde. It might be one of my favourite things in the world and there’s a solid chance I would commit a crime to get some if there were ever a worldwide shortage. It’s just that delicious… and hey, it’s even green so I count it towards my veggie intake. I bought some … Continue reading How We Do. Or Don’t Do?
They don’t prepare you for this. There’s no ultrasound, stress test or certain age when they turn that corner of maturity. Everyone was RIGHT when they had the audacity to offer their unsolicited words of wisdom- saying to enjoy these days because they apparently ‘fly by.’ And to think that you acknowledged their so-called advice with … Continue reading When The Magic Disappears
I’m a huge believer in signs. As in, every time I see a cardinal? I think it’s a loved one, who has passed away, saying hello. Dimes hold the same sentiment and when I need reassurance, the right song comes on at the right time. My cousin passed away a few weeks ago and it’s … Continue reading Signs of Comfort in Discomforting Times
Month 6: Life has thrown us a bit of a curveball and we’re back to re-adjusting and learning how to live by the minute. Pandemics are funny like that. Pandemics are also proving to show me how my loved ones react in circumstances and I am so proud to say that my family is strong. My … Continue reading 6th Month Stretch
You know when you aren’t fully sure where that itch in your back is? So, you lightly scratch as much surface area as humanly possible until you find the spot you can sink your nails into and satisfy that deep scratch? Yah? That’s where I’m at. Knowing I’m so close and finally feeling some relief-yet … Continue reading Surface Scratch
But, actually. We are legitimately back to how life was before Covid hit and this sh*t is still running rampant. What the hell, parents. Like… what? Alright. So, let’s break this down a minute here. I am the most selfish mother in the world and I literally skip out of the school play yard because … Continue reading And… Back to Regular Scheduled Programming.
I am a 34-year old single mother of 5 kids who is still living with her parents. HA. I really know how to sell myself, eh? Maybe this is where I mention that I suffer from crippling anxiety and have sought refuge in my childhood home. My safe place, if you will. Maybe I did … Continue reading The Road Less Travelled
I was triggered the other day when I was scrolling through Facebook and fell upon a picture of my ex-husband with a supposed sober smile. I was selfishly angry when I read some comments about how wonderful he is and how he deserves all the help in the world. I just thought to myself how he … Continue reading Triggered.
Oh hello, insomnia. So, we meet again. 90’s music and movies FTW. (apparently FTW means ‘for the win.’) I just learned about that this week, you’re welcome. I did sleep for a minute- maybe even 4 hours? But, I’d be a liar if I said that I’ve been sleeping well, lately as it has truthfully been … Continue reading Insomnia and Internet Horoscopes.
