I had a dream last night about an old friend. I know why it happened and it bothers me. It bothers me that after so many years of no contact I hear her voice in my head when I start to think about writing about what has happened in the last two weeks. And I … Continue reading Nine days.
A deeper dive into the drinking stuff. About a year ago I decided to start taking my health more seriously. So I stopped drinking regularly, I started in on the yard for exercise, and I began changing my diet. As of today I am somewhere on the scale that I never thought I'd be. People … Continue reading Drinking.
The last few years have been a journey. The most important thing I've learned is doing the Hard Things. I don't like doing Hard Things. I do them anyway. The more I lean into my core, the easier they become. If the thought of doing something makes me uncomfortable, I know it's important. Listening to … Continue reading Hard Things.
Things I like knowing.
I like knowing that, from the Prince’s mouth, his mum used to “belch like a high schooler” and she’d win the belching contests. I spent years trying to beat Butch at burp competitions, so I empathize with Haz.
I'm kind of tired of hearing that word. We need to normalize:_______! OR...we can just do the thing without talking about how awesome we are for the the thing that we should have done in the feckin first place. I'm just sayin. ANYWAY!

It’s Starting to Spring.
As impatient as I am to get my hands dirty in the yard, I force myself to wait. Until then, I just talk to all the new babies. There is so much growth happening!
Rise like a phoenix? Perhaps a lesser bird….
In a shocking turns of events, I'm going to start with a confession: I have been faking it for years. Faking knowing what I'm doing, faking like everything is ok, faking that I'm happy. The truth is that I have been a hot mess ever since Barb died, but it started before that. Her death … Continue reading Rise like a phoenix? Perhaps a lesser bird….
Legomania and Other Tangents
This weekend was Atlanta Brickfest. It was insanity. All four of us went together and it was a genuinely delightful aside from the girl’s pissiness. I am so very thankful for the working relationship that I have with their Dad. I heard horrific stories about couples that still are nasty to each other and I … Continue reading Legomania and Other Tangents
Shock and Awe.
It is the BEST feeling when I find a Doom Box that is full of stuff that I KNEW I had, but had been unable to locate for the last couple months! I now will be able to finish several small projects this weekend!!! In other news, I am officially old enough that I am … Continue reading Shock and Awe.
I had to take my son to high school orientation. He had been pretty negative about moving to high school, and I don't blame him one bit. The high school consists of several buildings, a cafeteria that rivals the food court at the mall, and twenty-five hundred students. 2500. Gurl, I graduated with 147 people--the … Continue reading Perspective.
