The Never-ending Lawn Mowing Saga

You guys REALLY loved my post about mowing my grandmother’s yard. Luckily for you, and unfortunately for me, THE SAGA CONTINUES. Slight spoiler: It ended in a meltdown (my mother can confirm) and Soul Sister J ordering Dt. Dr. Pepper and chocolate for me. Yeahhhhhhhhhhh. All I’m trying to do is be helpful. But the …

Soon There Will Be Three

OUR FAMILY IS EXPANDING! Yeah, I’ve kind of said that before. A LOT. But that was, “HEY I WANT THIS TO HAPPEN; HOWEVER, NOTHING IS LANDING IN MY LAP”. But something HAS landed in my lap! I have been searching for a while for a sister for Erlene. I’m sure she will love to have …

Last Thursday, I felt oddly compelled to go run errands that I could have taken care of Saturday. Deciding it would be a good idea to get out of the house and handle my business, anddddddd obtain some Dt. Dr. Pepper while I was adulting, I made my way out the door. The plan was …

The Rabbit Hole is Vast and Dark

Recently, I traveled to The Land of Mixed Feelings. I say that as though I don’t have a punch card for this particular destination. As a human who loves animals and nature, I strive to do my best to do right by both. I started to type out all of the things that bother me …

Becky Probably Had A Lot To Say To The Manager

I had to stop and think where we left off. I was crab galloping next to the nurses’ station. “So what has happened since?” I ask for you. Work was an F5 last week. I had an awful Thursday that led to me breaking down and sobbing when I stopped to help a dog (she …

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, …
