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.
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!

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.
The Continuing Purge.
Sometimes it seems like I'm never going to be done. I get one area clean and awesome and then realize I have another couple boxes of crap to go thru. I have more empathy than ever for the people on Hoarders cuz this shizz is HARD. But the truth is that all that crap was … Continue reading The Continuing Purge.
I did something hard.
I deleted my Auntie from my Favorites list. It’s been three years, she’s not Jesus, she’s not coming back. And yet I immediately burst into straight up ugly sobbing. I hate grieving. And I’m TIRED of it. It never ends. It gets moderately easier, but it ALWAYS hurts.
