This Post Comes To You From Underneath My Desk

IN CASE YOU THOUGHT I WAS LYING. My face is wrong today. I am self conscious; therefore, this is all you get. Why am I uncomfortably sitting beneath my desk when I have a bed full of blankets that are way more comfortable to hide under, you ask? Because blankets aren't going to cut it. …

Do People Ever Use Coffee Instead of Milk in Their Cereal?

What. A. Week. AND A BRAND NEW ONE IS STARTING TOMORROW! But, as my friend, Lauren, would say, "That is a problem for future us". Indeed it is, Lauren. You wise, wise human. I had initially planned to post toward the end of the week but alas. It wasn't in the cards. But I am …

Sorry I Went Through Your Wallet

I have a seemingly valid but probably not really complaint. Who decided the standard size of coffee mugs should be 8oz?! 8 dainty ounces. Does 8 oz. of caffeine actually make those of us in the over 35 demographic functional humans?! And who wants to make multiple trips to the coffee pot/tea kettle if it …

Tortoise Jerseys

Happy February 13th, 2021. It is Saturday and feels like -4 out. No thank you. The next few days aren't looking any better, which means the potential for cabin fever is high. Thankfully, I have plenty of knitting projects in the works- Katie's scarf that should have been done forever ago (I appreciate your patience!), …

Give A Kid A Tree On Arbor Day And She Will Forage From It 20+ Years Later

Why does life require so many different chargers?! It's a lazy morning over here- snow is coming. Feels like 19 out- a guarantee that you can bet the only place I am going today is Sonic to pick up my grandma's weekly wacky pack. Yeah, that's right. My grandma loves her a good kid's meal. …

Many Things Have Changed, Except For My Sweatpants

I have not forsaken you! I just...haven't been super compelled to write. I prefer to maintain a balance of honesty, humor, and real life. Lately, it's been a struggle. Not just for me, but for a lot of people I love. For a while, my life wasn't full of much laughter- there have been a …

HAPPY IT ISN’T 2020 ANYMORE

Look, I know that moving into 2021 doesn't automatically wipe our issues away. I mean, it would be great if that were possible; however, it currently isn't an option. And let's be honest- there are A LOT of important issues needing resolved. I don't need to gloss over how not wonderful 2020 was. You guys …

Election Hangover

There is something disgusting on my computer screen and I'm not entirely sure what it is. My spirit feels that way- covered in gross, frustration, sadness. It's been a week, friends. This election has worn me out mentally. I'm back to popping Dt. Dr. Peppers and buying a stuffed baby Yoda to comfort me. I'm …

Nature Tried To Give Me A Concussion and The Thing That Happened To My Tea Kettle

Hi! Remember me? I don't recall when I posted last because I've been binge watching The Boys, Travels With My Father, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, and New Girl. Oh, and busy reading Glennon Doyle's Untamed. A definite must read! And I've been feeling a little bleh. Long story short, I haven't felt like …

Erlene, The Bold Jumping Spider Who is Terrified of Grasshoppers

Most of you know how this story goes, thanks to my obsessive posting both here and on the social meeds; however, I feel like this teeny creature deserves a post all her own. I once said the only way I’d end up with a pet is if it somehow adopted me. I am not a …
