Diabetes Fun

I am not always proud of my parenting skills– I think that is normal and to be expected. Sometimes I lose my temper, or don’t follow through with things.. But I am doing the best that I can and at the end of the day my boys know that they are loved. Having a childContinue reading “Diabetes Fun”

The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Yesterday was gross, like all of it, just ick. It wasn’t what happened, so much, it was more how I felt and dealing with those feelings. Not long ago, you see, those same exact feelings would have me reaching for external comfort– food, liquor, wine, pot… any of it would do. So.. when what startedContinue reading “The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day”

White Feathers, Signs, Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde and Suicide

Come to think of it, why did I even think my coat was stuffed with feathers?  I knew that it can be a sign, but I haven’t looked it up recently, so, right now, as I’m writing this I decided to look it up.  The very first thing that popped up and was highlighted was exactly what I was looking for.  And the date it was posted happened to be on my mom’s death day.  

In the Devil’s Grip

Ahhhhh…. remember the good old days, with longer stretches of sobriety– and me loving getting in some extra exercise on my glorious and beloved sober weekend? Either do it.  It seems like a lifetime ago. This weekend I was particularly brutal to myself.  We had to watch our niece Friday night and I was horrifiedContinue reading “In the Devil’s Grip”

One Cold February

Today is the last day of mid winter break and I found myself awake before 5:00 am.  I am thoroughly enjoying the peaceful house this morning. It’s been a nice, low key break. And the skunk smell is finally gone from our home. Yesterday was particularly nice and productive, yet enjoyable.  I got up, washedContinue reading “One Cold February”

A Very Stinky Week

What was supposed to be a fabulous weekend is turning miserable.  It started on Wednesday. Wednesday was my late mom’s birthday.  I woke up for work and as I got out of bed I looked out into the backyard.  I do this every morning, hoping to catch a glimpse of a deer or coyote.  IContinue reading “A Very Stinky Week”

Goal Diggin’

Thursday January 31, 2019 It’s been a long time since I wrote.  I’ll try to catch you up while getting to the point of things.. Florida- This was a fun, yet Toxic, trip that had me wondering what I did to piss off the Universe.  It started out kind of stressful where we flew outContinue reading “Goal Diggin’”

Sunday Runday Funday Wonderful Munday

Ahhhhhh… sweet sunny Sunday morning 🙂  We had a bit of a snowstorm yesterday– the first of the year.  We got about 5 inches or so, so everything outside is covered, and white and peaceful.  The sun is shining brightly and it is a very brisk 1 degree at the moment. It’s been a prettyContinue reading “Sunday Runday Funday Wonderful Munday”

More Good Stuff

Sunday here– and fabulous one at that!  What a great weekend it’s been! If one pic sums up the weekend, this would be it: Ok– it wasn’t all lazy, but it was filled with comfort and joy 🙂 Friday night I skipped out on an after school work retirement get together.  This caused me aContinue reading “More Good Stuff”

My Best Life

Getting up at 5:00am with the littlest to see the peak meteor showers. Cleaning out closets one by one while I’m off work- purging bag after bag of things I never use after being a married adult for 18 years. Walking 2 miles while my foot is still hurting– because walking on it ultimately helpsContinue reading “My Best Life”
