Growth Is Uncomfortable: Nature, Removing Emotional Corsets, and Tree Hugging

I’ve been spending a lot of time in our seven acre backyard lately- watching the baby fish swim in the shallows of the water. Listening to the birds, frogs, and insects make all the noises they make. When you stop and pay attention, you realize how busy nature is. I don’t think any of them […]

If I Were Made Of Bacon

Haku is adorable. And Samantha Irby’s book is HILARIOUS, FYI! I would love to be friends with her. The kind of friends who text or DM because neither of us want to get out into the world. Or put pants on. Or have to worry about awkward pooping in public places. Look at Haku. He […]

Dreams From Way Too Early The Other Morning: April 13th

1. A vampire bit my right arm. After bonking it on the head, it scurried off (someone has been watching too much True Blood this coronatine). …this led to an early morning existential crisis/anxiety meltdown as I was doing my best to get back to sleep. Worst part: the vampire didn’t even try to get […]

Realistic Dating Expectations For Those With Mental lllness

Disclaimer: I am not a professional of any kind- this is only food for thought because I feel I need to shout my opinions into the internet like everyone else. All I am offering is a different perspective and to maybe help you kill a few moments of your time. Relationship advice is everywhere. I […]

Do Extroverts Haunt People When They Die?

I have one existential crisis a week (roughly). With the pandemic raging around us, I’m currently averaging two. I like to think I’m handling my fragile mortality pretty well, all things considered. Do you know the best way to clear a group chat? Tell your family when you die that you want them to cut […]

I WIN BECAUSE I HAVE ALL OF THE SEEDS!

Winter had to get one last hoorah in before Spring sits on the throne. What a fucking dick! We’ve had great weather here lately. Sure, it’s kind of windy, but it’s Kansas. I’ll take a windy 70 degree day anytime. As you are well aware (if you religiously read my blog), I love plants. They’re […]

Great Clips Massacre

Just when I was beginning to wonder what I was going to post (material has been lacking), the universe dropped this little gem into my lap. The plan for this afternoon was simple: Pick my son up. Take him to get a hair cut at Great Clips. Procure fast food. Grab a few things from […]

DID SOMEONE BOOKSGIVING ME?!

What is Booksgiving? It’s a Jenny Lawson holiday. She’s kind of a HUGE deal to me, seeings how she’s my favorite author/blogger AND I WOULD PROBABLY MAKE IT INCREDIBLY AWKWARD IF I EVER MET HER! I’d want to be best friends but because I’d make it weird thanks to fan girling so hard, she’d possibly […]

This Post Is Probably Going To Make Me Late To Drop Off My Kid

I’m in a weird place right now. I mean, there are some great things happening behind the scenes. Very excited about them! But my trip last weekend left me with some big questions. It was a fun trip. However, anytime my friend, Drew, is involved, there are always lots of laughs, along with great decisions. […]

Antler Fingers Are For The Workplace

I argue that they are for everyday use and wouldn’t be creepy at all. My gentleman caller disagrees, EVEN THOUGH HE WAS THE ONE WHO OFFERED TO MAKE ME REPLACEMENT FINGERS! But I’m getting ahead of myself, so let’s back up so I can give you an edited version of how this conversation happened. And […]
