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 …

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!), …

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, …

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 …

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 …

Self Care Isn’t Always About Waffles With Sprinkles and Hot Flower Baths

Gave myself a good “I told you so” the other evening. I’ve been slacking on my physical health for a good while. Skipping yoga, more specifically. And I have known for way too many months I needed to start getting back on my mat. Buttttttttt I didn’t. I put everything else first (only reinforces the …
