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.
Hi. It’s me again. Coming atcha on a Friday afternoon from my living room couch with a warm lemon ginger tea in hand. Super exciting, I know. But… I’m content and I’m feeling proud of myself for being where I’m at in life because it wasn’t always this easy. And honestly speaking, I had a … Continue reading How She Got Her Groove Back
I’ve been a little quiet on here lately because life has been jam-packed with insanity, both good and bad. I had to take a pause and embrace some quietness before my head spun like Medusa. I still have ZERO idea on this whole back-to-school disaster and I’m in a slight conundrum because I’ve got 3 … Continue reading Another New Chapter
I’m a believer in mastery and I’m a believer in nurturing natural talents and interests. I believe that kiddos grow into well-rounded humans when they’re challenged and humbled. I believe in losses and I’m on the fence with participation trophies (as great as they are, they open another can of worms down the road.) My … Continue reading Dear Extra-Curricular: I Love You
Well, it’s come to this. I’m writing this entry in hopes that it’ll not only giveme some therapeutic relief but that some of you will potentially sound off and point me in any sort of direction. Yep. I’m relying on throwing this out there into the Internet abyss, in hopes that a possible stranger just … Continue reading Dear Internet, I Need Advice.
