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 […]

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 […]

Instagram: Bringing You Back Alley Treasures Since 2020

Hi. I’ve missed having fun stuff to share with you when everything feels heavy. Including me. But today something fun happened that made me laugh and I want to share it with you. I’m surprised my best friend sent this- he’s a little more on the reserved side. Sometimes I wonder how our friendship has […]

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 […]

Spiders Make Terrible Interior Decorators

I kind of feel bad for demolishing all of their hard work, but they should ask before assuming it’s okay for them to start putting cobwebs anywhere they want all willy nilly. MAYBE YOU’D HAVE MORE OF A SAY IF YOU HELPED PAY THE BILLS, SPIDERS! Or if you could write words in your web […]

We’re About To See Just How Green My Green Thumb Is

Before I get started on the actual topic of today’s post (a big box of jungle love from Houston), I made an important decision: I’m going to talk to my health care provider about anti-depressant meds. …but that’s only going to happen when COVID fucks off or when I absolutely have to go in for […]

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 […]
