Life in theory….

With all that is going on in the world, I can't tell you how many people are disappointed in life.  Not just their life, but life in general.  I get it, and I feel it.  With political divide growing, a never ending pandemic, crazy weather in Texas that has never...

This is your story

You ever stop and think about how crappy this last year has been? I'm pretty sure if you have a pulse, you have. Every day feels like another day closer to "hopefully soon this will be behind us..." (And just in case you have been under a rock, of course I am talking...

I want to take a moment and talk about projection…

If you saw my video from the other day, I got ripped in to (in a private Mom's group) because I mentioned that once upon a time I pushed the mattress out of my kids room... And this did NOT set well with her, she didn't hold back in any way shape or form...I was in...

You know…there are days I wonder how I got where I am.

Life is a long road of twists and turns and ups and downs and sometimes ad nauseam... but we persevere. Growing up in my house there was a lot of chaos. I would like to say it was a peaceful upbringing, but that would be a lie...and I'm not a liar. I have four...

Okay, so today was kind of an exciting day…

The last few weeks have been one step forward, two steps back. I started walking regularly to work off "the Covid 19" then my back went out. I have spent the last week sitting mostly (okay so that feels like five steps back). Today I was able to get out and walk 3:16...

I just want you all to know how my brain works.

I don't need any pity...just take a ride with me...The other day I posted my anniversary...21 whole years married to the same guy....only it's actually 22....and it only took me a few days to realize it... I'm pretty sure my brain tried to wipe out 2020. I'm gonna...

Here is how I am choosing to appreciate 2021 …

Today was mostly a quiet day, my back is tweaked, I did some editing and I took a short walk and did the dishes while Chris decided to grab fixings for dinner since he has a new cooking toy... (a Teppan table that fits on the BBQ outside.) He asked if anyone will be...

Binge Watching

I spent the whole day on my couch binge-watching the Queen's Gambit!! I haven’t spent a day like this in a LONG time and usually only when sick (which I am not) and forced to stay down ... Chess brings up memories of my dad, even though I have never played ... WOW -...

Give from what you have.

You know, I was watching someone speak online tonight that I found fascinating and full of wisdom. They were 51...my age... I remember seeing my parents at my age thinking they were so amazing and so smart - so OLD.... (and they were on some levels, lol), but now that...

Don’t underestimate the impact of your words on another.

So, I was in my office going through some stuff and pulled out a few old photo albums to share with Aspen (Avery was gone). It was fun going through old pictures. A while back, while purging my office to make room for Aspen's bed, I ran across a ton of old letters...

The Beauty of Getting Away

We are in what feels like the forever middle of a Pandemic. If you have anything related to internet or a TV, you can't get through the day without hearing "Covid-19" or "Coronavirus"... It's literally insane. I keep telling myself we are literally in the middle of...
