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 […]

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 […]
