Lectured

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 […]

A rainbow in the cloudy sky

Sky, the: (reach for it)

I am going to shamelessly steal this blog prompt (so I can keep the streak going) and use it for my own nefarious purposes. I could talk about pretty clouds or rainbows (see the lovely featured image), but what I really wanted to talk about for a moment was “reaching for the sky.” (I wanted […]

Create, Clean, Connect

My weekend was nice enough, although hot and humid enough that wearing a damn t-shirt so I could be presentable out of the house was enough to make me melt. This is not my favorite weather, and I really hope Summer moderates itself soon. Last week I watched a video on YouTube by MuchelleB about […]

plans-ish

Gonna do it. Totally gonna do it.

I don’t know if I told this story yet, so here I go from scratch. So, I was listening to Girl, Wash Your Face, and Rachel Hollis (someone I’ve never heard of before being assaulted by her face as a recommendation after I listened to some BrenĂ© Brown) told me that I should be drinking […]

April Challenges

There are a variety of 30-day challenges in April, and I’m not taking part in any of them. But a couple of them have been fun for me in the past, and you have a couple of days to sign up for them still, so I thought I’d tell you about them. Camp NaNoWriMo If […]

“Advent” project – help needed

So a few years ago I read something somewhere online about a cute thing for your kids – you get 24 children’s books and wrap them up and then each day of advent your kid picks a book to open and read. They could be books from your shelves, new books, all Christmas themed, whatever. […]

January status

January didn’t go well. I mean, it kind of did. I wrote a very short piece of fiction and posted it on the blog. I had a birthday and lived through it. My two kids are awesome and my family is as healthy as usual, and I got to spend some time with friends. But […]

2019 Wishlist

The first couple weeks of January have gone by, and we are officially past the halfway point. Woo! I’ve been thinking about the two goals I set for January, but am having a hard time keeping up with them. Nothing particular is getting in my way except myself and my own lack of willpower. I’m […]
