The Never-ending Lawn Mowing Saga

You guys REALLY loved my post about mowing my grandmother's yard. Luckily for you, and unfortunately for me, THE SAGA CONTINUES. Slight spoiler: It ended in a meltdown (my mother can confirm) and Soul Sister J ordering Dt. Dr. Pepper and chocolate for me. Yeahhhhhhhhhhh. All I'm trying to do is be helpful. But the …

Soon There Will Be Three

OUR FAMILY IS EXPANDING! Yeah, I've kind of said that before. A LOT. But that was, "HEY I WANT THIS TO HAPPEN; HOWEVER, NOTHING IS LANDING IN MY LAP". But something HAS landed in my lap! I have been searching for a while for a sister for Erlene. I'm sure she will love to have …

Considering A Career In Transport

Last Thursday, I felt oddly compelled to go run errands that I could have taken care of Saturday. Deciding it would be a good idea to get out of the house and handle my business, anddddddd obtain some Dt. Dr. Pepper while I was adulting, I made my way out the door. The plan was …

The Rabbit Hole is Vast and Dark

Recently, I traveled to The Land of Mixed Feelings. I say that as though I don't have a punch card for this particular destination. As a human who loves animals and nature, I strive to do my best to do right by both. I started to type out all of the things that bother me …

The Great Lawn Mowing Saga of Spring 2021

Grandma has been worried about who will mow her yard since the beginning of the year. By worried, I mean full of anxiety. The teenager can do most of it; however, he is super allergic to poison oak, sumac, and ivy. Grandma happens to have a very healthy supply of poison oak on one of …

I hate to disappoint, but I accidentally deleted pictures of the most wonderful peen stitch markers that I promised last post. Sigh. Know they were very much appreciated. And I hope to see pictures of them in …

Becky Probably Had A Lot To Say To The Manager

I had to stop and think where we left off. I was crab galloping next to the nurses' station. "So what has happened since?" I ask for you. Work was an F5 last week. I had an awful Thursday that led to me breaking down and sobbing when I stopped to help a dog (she …

This Is Probably Why They Keep Me On Meds

Sunday. March 14th, 2021. The first time I've had all weekend to catch my breath and not sure what to do. So here I am. Working it all out with you on ye ol' WordPress. Don't get me wrong. I've had a great weekend. So many hugs. Great company. Wonderful food. ALL THE LAUGHING. My …

Long Walks With Alpacas

Thursday. Day 2 of 5 that I am off of work. And it is AMAZING! I didn't realize how badly I needed a break. However, I will be coming back to a pile of work. Potentially an entire mountain range of it. But that is a problem for future Amber. Here in the moment Amber …

Fruition

This was my mother's response to my last post- the one where I was full of anxiety and convinced I was going to explode myself and everything around me because I know nothing about propane tanks. AHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh, Mama Bear. ...but it seems I will (still) be stuck opening my own cans of biscuits. Thankfully, …
