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 [...]

I can’t drink coffee anymore..probs not gonna make it.

I can’t drink coffee anymore..probs not gonna make it.

It is now January the 29th, in the year of our Lord 2020. It has been precisely 25 days since I've been able to handle a cup of coffee. I'm obviously dying. I've been sick the whole month of January. The whole freaking month! I had this inner ear thing going on where I was [...]

I deserve some freaking flowers.

I deserve some freaking flowers.

Daughters: A mom's best friend. A soul sister. The child who never leaves you even when they grow old... Yeah, ok, maybe. But they forgot to tell you about the part where they almost kill you before they turn twenty. One particularly monumental little daughter of mine started out in life weighing 6 pounds. The [...]

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 [...]

The God Card

The God Card

For any of my new readers who need to read this today. I am reposting an old article I wrote a year or so ago because I feel like it's important and needs to be said again. And again. And again. I feel you. I love you. You can do this. “God hates divorce.” “You [...]

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 [...]

“Dirty dishes belong in the dishwasher, not the sink!!!” …..says every parent ever.

“Dirty dishes belong in the dishwasher, not the sink!!!” …..says every parent ever.

We have a lot of kids around here. Seven of them ranging in age from ten to nineteen. It gets really stressful having this many people in the house, but not for reasons you might assume. Funnily enough, it's not the kids who stress me out. It's my husband, God bless him. Poor G has [...]

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 [...]
