Healing; because that’s always a good time…

Healing; because that’s always a good time…

It's been a summer, people. Not just because of how the Corona Virus throws a wrench in everything, but because of what's happened around here. If you've been following my blog for a while, you will know that I am on my second marriage. I ended my first marriage of 17 years because I couldn't [...]

G is combining, and I need Jesus.

G is combining, and I need Jesus.

It's May 1st here in Canada, and the combines are out in full force. If you didn't grow up in a farming community you're probably thinking "ok cool, whatever." If you did grow up in a farming community, you will think one of two things: 1. She's obviously on drugs. 2. What the heck happened [...]

What is family?A different way of looking at step-kids.

What is family?A different way of looking at step-kids.

I went to therapy recently. My lovely friend helped me with some of my issues regarding my step-kid's mom. She opened my eyes to a few truths I was having trouble seeing, and it helped. But that isn't what this post is about. This post is about an epiphany of mine that happened quite recently. [...]

Why is self care so much work?!

Why is self care so much work?!

I love Esma, I really do. She's like my soul sister. I have a job in the service industry as the front end staff for the local humane society. I love it at work. It's quiet and the cats don't talk back. I know what I'm supposed to accomplish, and when I'm done I can [...]

My vitamins were straight up trying to kill me.

My vitamins were straight up trying to kill me.

This is a continuation from my last post, with a happier ending. https://youcandothis.blog/2020/01/29/i-cant-drink-coffee-anymore-probs-not-gonna-make-it/ I went and saw my doctor recently. She informed me that I wasn't going to die, which was good news overall. She also informed me that she strongly believes I have adrenal fatigue from the constant state of stress my body has [...]

G went sledding and I didn’t die.

G went sledding and I didn’t die.

This Saturday was a momentous occasion. G went off to play in the (traitorous , murderous, I don't give a crap who you are I will kill you with no mercy!) mountains. And I didn't die. I seem to have a bit of anxiety regarding this particular hobby of his. See https://youcandothis.blog/2019/10/30/i-had-my-first-ever-panic-attack-it-sucked/ for further reference. [...]

Self Care=New Hair

I almost murdered someone at the grocery store yesterday. People weren't putting their carts away! There was no one to carry out my groceries into the horrible sludgy snow that makes it impossible to even push your cart halfway across the parking lot! ( Might be the reason for my prior grievance but that doesn't [...]

PMS…why though?

PMS…why though?

When G and I first got together I told him that I have a wicked time with my period. I get cramps and digestive issues that start days before. I'm exhausted and teary and can't move for the first few days of the proceedings. I struggle with migraines. And I most definitely get moody and [...]

I think Costco is lying to me.

I think Costco is lying to me.

I just got my rebate cheque back from Costco. I think they’re lying. It’s for one hundred and thirty dollars and seventeen cents. I spend approximately twenty-ish thousand dollars there a year... In my humble opinion, my rebate cheque should read more like seven thousand dollars and seventeen cents. There are nine of us that [...]

I had my first ever panic attack. It sucked.

I had my first ever panic attack. It sucked.

G and I went to see a therapist this past week. I had asked him to join me for that session regarding my anxiety. We went to try and brainstorm ideas for helping me work through my overwhelming separation anxiety, and just my craziness in general. The session went well. I was logical. We came [...]
