Grateful Heathen Willing To Do The Dishes

My boy is home for the weekend and I am happy; however, picking him up felt like I was playing a round of real life Mario Kart. It began with a low tire. Then avoiding road work. And a detour due to a wreck on 254. Thankfully, I was only 20 minutes late. ...but I [...]

Best Friends Are The Best Medicine

What do you do when you’re a sad mama bear and you find yourself a single lady again conveniently the week you're on vacation? You drive two hours to spend a few days with one of your best friends (we’ve both been limiting our contact with people and working from home). And you realize visiting [...]

Love, Antidepressants, and Loafing

I had this great idea for a blog last night as I was drifting off to sleep. As I lay there, I was thinking about how I should text myself so I wouldn't forget. But it was so good that I had faith I'd remember. ...I should have went with my initial reaction. So instead, [...]

It’s Best to Seize the Day After 1PM

I had a plan for this morning- forego my usual routine: tea, medicine, food, and lounging for a few hours to instead get dressed, coat my arms and legs in insect repellent and drive away to walk the Lehigh Portland Trails while the weather was still nice. ...do you spot the numerous problems with my [...]

Hey There, Stranger

It's been a while, hasn't it? I'm not even sure where to start, to be quite honest- so I'll start with I haven't been great lately. I haven't wanted to write. Knit. Take pictures. See much of anyone. Go anywhere. Or partake in actual verbal conversations, though the ones I've engaged in lately have managed [...]

BDSM Bugs

If you are easily offended or of a delicate nature, abort reading this post immediately. This requires an incredibly odd sense of humor and a fair helping of morbid curiosity. So what I'm saying is Mom, if you're still reading this, it's on you- my hands are clean. I thought I was going to have [...]

Now That’s Small Town Customer Service

I was originally going to post this last night but started getting tired. Then this morning, Josh messaged me and I had to share that blip of conversation. BUT I'M ALLOWED TO FUCK UP MY POST TIMELINE! All that matters is you get a story. Yesterday morning started out on a high note. Plenty of [...]

I Could Have Been An Actress With This Much Dramatic Flair

Welcome to my before 8am Saturday morning. ...I hate when he makes a valid point. More posts to come.

Home is Where You Set Trash On the Counter

UGHHHHHH! We are currently having technical difficulties, probably because Dad is trying to talk to me from the couch as I sit on my bed. And I can't seem to get this post set up quite right. I had a rough (mental) outline- start with how I used to, and still sometimes do, struggle with [...]

Mama Bear Wears the Pants

In case you were wondering, the full moon cycle is about to start and it’ll reach its peak at 5:45am CT on May 7th. Thank you, Moon Phase app. What does that mean? Charge your crystals in the moonlight in order to clean them from all the energetic gunk they’ve been absorbing and be prepared [...]
