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 […]

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 […]

Corona Crossing, Self Medicating With Caffeine, and Now We Have a Mailbox Big Enough To Hold a Baby (Maybe Two)

Please do not deposit any unwanted babies into our mailbox. There’s a reason I opted for a hysterectomy almost five years ago and have yet to regret it. I was working this morning from my bed, as I currently do M-F. I could hear Dad tromping in from the great outdoors, stop at the area […]

I Have Nothing Witty. Happy Last Monday of April for 2020.

Work was actually pretty low key today. I managed to get caught up on my uploads, so I was able to switch focus on knocking out backlogged vaccinations (I have to make sure each vaccine is in the patient’s chart and if if isn’t, I notate all necessary information in my spreadsheet, add a note […]

Kangaroos Live in the Pockets of Jumpsuits

In the middle of a raging stress headache (thanks, work related anxiety that makes me feel like I’m going to get fired because I couldn’t do the things right today!), I glanced into the mirror. I look like someone’s middle aged mother. YEAH, I KNOW I AM. People say middle age starts at 40. Realistically, […]

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 […]
