Summer Vacation and Scout Camp

Day 86 🙂 It’s Friday of the first week of summer break– although I don’t feel very well rested or accomplished. My youngest is at his first year at Scout Camp.  I went up there on Monday and came home Wednesday night.  I. Was. Exhausted.  They really run the kids ragged.  I talked to himContinue reading “Summer Vacation and Scout Camp”

Gratefulness

I wanted to write a quick update.  I spoke with the vet this morning and his urine/creatine ratio test is slightly elevated. SO it MIGHT be Cushings, it might not.  She is definitely thinking it’s something metabolic.  I mentioned kidney failure (thank you once again Dr. Google) and she said NO.  She said he isContinue reading “Gratefulness”

All Apologies

It’s a hot day, my windows are down and I am doing 90 on the freeway. I’m on my way to pick up three teenagers from a school event.  Nirvana is blaring on the radio. Only it’s not 2019, it’s 1993.  I’m in my 1986 Sunbird with the windows down and Nirvana cranked up.  IContinue reading “All Apologies”

Good Vibrations

I’ve been stuck in this low frequency/low vibration funk.   My family and I headed out to an animal sanctuary today, and on the long ride there I was able to raise my vibrations a bit.  I tried to think of everything possible to be grateful for, including the beautiful forest of trees we were passingContinue reading “Good Vibrations”

This Too Shall Pass

This too shall pass.  I feel like I’ve been saying this for weeks. My intention was to write a positive post tonight.  After all, it’s Mother’s Day tomorrow and my boys and I are going to the Sasha Farm Sanctuary to learn about the cruelty of factory farms, to cuddle some farm animals and toContinue reading “This Too Shall Pass”

Evil Dr. Google

Day 40 – It was a long Monday, filled with testing and feeling exhausted.  I’m not sure why I’m so fatigued– I’ve been eating a lot cleaner maybe my body is detoxing– or maybe it’s something else. I hate hate hate Dr. Google right now.  I spent a good part of my Sunday being overjoyedContinue reading “Evil Dr. Google”

Here Comes the Sun

Today is Saturday and by all measures, I should be feeling so happy. The sun is FINALLY shining. I’m finally starting to shed the 10 pounds that I put on since the new year. I woke up early to make it to my favorite specialty stores before they got busy.  I came home, put awayContinue reading “Here Comes the Sun”

Day 21

It feels so good to keep the momentum going!  It’s been a tiring but great few weeks.  I’m not exactly riding the pink cloud, as they say, but I am enjoying NOT thinking about drinking every second of every day.  I barely even think of it at all.  Once in awhile the thought will runContinue reading “Day 21”

Magnificent Monday

A Monday without work is a magnificent Monday indeed! And, sadly, it’s going to come to an end pretty soon. That’s quite ok. Friday is Good Friday, so it’ll be a nice 3 day work week. This past weekend has been just excellent. Friday night was pretty lazy and I was out cold by 10:30pm.Continue reading “Magnificent Monday”

Hooray for Friday, Longest Week Ever

This has been an excruciating LONG week. Coming back from Spring Break is never a treat, especially since we started giving students the state assessment beginning the week after break. The state assessment is the devil. It does not seem to align much with the curriculum we are supposed to be teaching (thank you CommonContinue reading “Hooray for Friday, Longest Week Ever”
