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, …

Leveling Up To Forest Witch

Are you one of the lucky individuals existing in the world that do not manage anxiety, and are curious about what anxiety can be like? I envy you. But to satisfy your curiosity, let me share this perfect example of what can happen when anxiety takes over. Super great and wonderful news- I am moving …

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. …

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 …
