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 [...]

Pornography wasn’t the issue.. wait, what?!

Pornography wasn’t the issue.. wait, what?!

We have some potential big changes going on over here. Things I will write about in the future because I'm still processing them and trying to calm the heck down over here. But I will share one thing with you that I'm currently exploring. G and I were talking in our room the other day. [...]

Maybe don’t say this to divorced people..

Maybe don’t say this to divorced people..

We had some friends over for supper the other night. We are in the beginning stages of getting to know one another. They are members of the local church, and all around good people. We were sharing about our past history. Awkward questions ensued. "So why doesn't G's family want anything to do with you [...]

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 [...]

Self Care=New Hair

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

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 [...]

Perception

Trying to change people's perceptions of you is like trying to teach a south paw how to crochet... I've decided to take up crocheting. Mostly because it's impossible to find a hat that will fit over dreadlocks and I don't want to pay fifty dollars for one on Etsy. Instead I decided to go out [...]

When the letter comes.

When the letter comes.

This is for you loves who are right smack dab in the middle of your divorce. When you feel naked and vulnerable and scared. When you're not sure how much longer you can stand the pain in your heart. When what you really need is hot soup, and hugs, and kind words, and friendship, and [...]

Kombucha belly is a thing

Kombucha belly is a thing

I've had kaumbucha two days in a row now. I actually like the way it tastes and it makes me feel all healthy and stuff. I'm still recovering from my accident and trying to take care of myself...ish. Anyway, here I am trying to practice self care with ridiculously expensive beverages in trendy bottles, but [...]

Family Camp

Family Camp

Well people, it was an adventure. The kids loved it. The adults survived it. Here are a few pictures of my kiddos enjoying their week. And this one here is me with my bestie. Without her and G, it would have been a wee bit too much. She looks amazing as usual. I look like [...]
