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. [...]

I was brave. It didn’t work

I was brave. It didn’t work

We were at another basketball tournament this weekend. Go figure. At our particular school we have two sets of glass double doors leading into the shrine, I mean, the school gymnasium. There was a momentous moment where I saw G's ex-wife heading into the school through the double doors on the right. We were heading [...]

You should have seen me these last few days, I've been the queen of efficiency. I've got so much accomplished it's preposterous.

When you fall off the horse..literally

Well then. You can probably assume what happened from my title. G has been checking hay fields lately, this is part of his job. He has to walk through the fields and check for different kinds of weeds before the hay is cut and baled. The hay is currently up to his waist, which is [...]

I hate all my clothes.

I hate all my clothes.

I hate all my clothes and I need new ones. Am I the only one who ever feels like this? I already know my clothes are perfectly fine and I should be thankful and content. But I'm not in the mood for such trifles. Usually when I feel this way it's because I'm overtired and [...]

Bad Dreams

Bad Dreams

A little known fact about me: If you wake me up at 5am, I am generally a nice person. This is really saying something because if you wake me up at 7am, you're likely to get your head bitten off. My children have learned through painful experience that you do not stand outside my bedroom [...]
