Happy International Trans Visibility Day! We Love and Support You!

You read correctly- this is a safe space. We love our trans friends here. The more the merrier! I hate to disappoint, but I accidentally deleted pictures of the most wonderful peen stitch markers that I promised last post. Sigh. Know they were very much appreciated. And I hope to see pictures of them in …

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 …

This Is Probably Why They Keep Me On Meds

Sunday. March 14th, 2021. The first time I’ve had all weekend to catch my breath and not sure what to do. So here I am. Working it all out with you on ye ol’ WordPress. Don’t get me wrong. I’ve had a great weekend. So many hugs. Great company. Wonderful food. ALL THE LAUGHING. My …

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 …

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. …

Many Things Have Changed, Except For My Sweatpants

I have not forsaken you! I just…haven’t been super compelled to write. I prefer to maintain a balance of honesty, humor, and real life. Lately, it’s been a struggle. Not just for me, but for a lot of people I love. For a while, my life wasn’t full of much laughter- there have been a …

Nature Tried To Give Me A Concussion and The Thing That Happened To My Tea Kettle

Hi! Remember me? I don’t recall when I posted last because I’ve been binge watching The Boys, Travels With My Father, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, and New Girl. Oh, and busy reading Glennon Doyle’s Untamed. A definite must read! And I’ve been feeling a little bleh. Long story short, I haven’t felt like …

This Little Light of Mine

I LOATHE winter. I admit, there is a beauty to it. But I’d enjoy it more if I could spend it laying on a human sized heating rock- as one of my exes suggested years ago. He was not wrong. I miss his humor- he was always good at making me laugh. I don’t hate …

Give a Man $50 and He Will Buy 18 Bottles of Ketchup

Dad had me order 18 bottles of ketchup from Amazon. Yes, EIGHTEEN BOTTLES OF KETCHUP and no clue where we’re going to store them when they come in. I vote for his bedroom because I doubt my father will follow The Home Edit/Marie Kondo’s rules of purging/editing things from his house. …if you’ve seen the …
