welcome to the year that won't kill me (hopefully)


Two posts in a month! So, like many other people in the world, I am now working from home. I am grateful I am still employed, as is my husband. I’ve been a little injury-prone since moving to work from home (WFH from here on out). On Thursday I was walking into the bedroom and […]


Okay, that’s not entirely true, but it’s true enough. One friend talking about it last night, another friend posting about it this morning, and then visiting the website… Yeah. It’s the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. You know you want to sign up, too. So, the first friend has most of her posts ready. […]


I went to my very first well-doctor/new patient appointment today. I don’t think I’ve been to the doctor without being sick since I was little. I only go if I’m not feeling well, and it takes flu-level sick (or that one time with the back pain while pregnant) to get me there. In January, when […]

February, I’m getting really tired of you trying to copy January’s sh*t.

February, I’m getting really tired of you trying to copy January’s sh*t.

Actually, February (with one recent exception which I will not mention other to say that it involved Junior Youth and everyone is fine) wasn’t too bad to me. In fact, I finally started doing one of the things I’ve vaguely wanted to do since I got back from the RISE Weekend in January. I have […]

January tried to kill me (and it failed)

I started my 2020 off with two bottles of very nice $6 wine. It’s a sweet white, and I love it. Not very high alcohol content, otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to enjoy two bottles. But very nice. I enjoyed myself. I suppose you could also look at that as the end of my […]

Three Days Remaining

Good afternoon, friends! There are three days left in 2019. That means there are three days left before 2020 starts. And my one MILLION word challenge. I’m doing it. I’m going to do it with a friend. In fact, in a way, I’ve already started. I started a book in November, at the very tail […]


It’s the last month, and the only thing the prompt makes me think of is a screenshot I found on Pinterest of a Tumblr post. It reads: twinkle twinkle, little starwhy is art so fucking hard up above the world so highi can’t draw the other eye twinkle twinkle little fuckdammitwhat thei give up tumblr […]

I was thinking…

I was thinking about trying to write more next year. I had a heck of a lot of fun (as I always do) writing this November (when I finally got around to it — when life settled down enough to let it happen) that I want to keep it up. Of course, that feeling might […]


I am thankful for Bliss Kiss’s nail oil. It does a really good job of healing my cuticles (which I have a tendency to bother with until my cuticles are a hot mess) when I remember to use it regularly. I am thankful for my family. Despite my significant lack of self-confidence, I am raising […]



Here’s a quick update on the Creative Things I’m doing lately. It’s just #Inktober2019 I’m really enjoying it. I end up staying almost on track – right now I’m behind 1 day so I’ll catch up when I get home on yesterday and today. My version of #Inktober is lettering with doodles since that is […]
