Hey there!

This stream of consciousness is intended to be an unfiltered account of my journey to fight my way to a healthier, happier life. One day at a time, one step at a time, one organically-grown-emotionally-raw blog post at a time…

    2022-09-03 The One About Pleasing People

    Historically, I finish things I start. Unfinished business really tugs at my brain (and heart) and even worse if that involves tarnishing my reputation in someone else’s eyes. For all the times I’ve tried to throw my hands up and say “I don’t give a fuck what other people think” I should have learned that […]

    2022-08-26 Epic Summer Road Trip Days 3,4,&6: Big Scenery and Big Changes in Scenery

    We decided on another leisurely morning on Tuesday and slept in (sort of) instead of getting up early to catch the sunrise. The sunset is where it’s at anyhow. I say “sort of” because we still got up relatively early and did that exercise thing we do. This is part of how I know I’m […]

    2022-08-23 Epic Summer Road Trip Days 1 & 2: To Moab & the Arches

    Days 1 and 2 have involved a lot of driving. Somehow every trip that Jim and I have planned since getting married has been this way. Mostly because of the pandemic and the nix on air travel. But even for destinations we’ve flown to like Oregon, the “exploration” factor has been high where we’ve only […]

    2022-08-21 Epic Summer Road Trip Day 0: Reading poetry, chaos, and exhaustion.. but I didn’t die! 😂

    Yesterday I bit off more than I could chew but I survived. I sacrificed day 0 of my vacation to do a reading at a local bookstore cuz 1: It was a Saturday and I knew there was a bigger chance more people could go on a Saturday. And 2:There weren’t a lot of other […]

    2022-08-15 Denver Road Trip Wrap Up

    The road home always seems longer. It’s boring, exhausting, and there’s a big let down after all the fun things planned have come and gone. But for posterity, here’s one last hurrah to wrap this latest road trip with ribbons and bows… Wednesday we left around 3:30 in the afternoon and chased the sun all […]

    2022-08-14 Denver Road Trip Day 4: Meeeeoooow Wolf

    This feels like the good ole days right? Writing blog posts every day regardless of how boring or repetitive they are. Today’s topic is no surprise. Day 4 of my little road trip. Not to be mistaken with my BIG road trip which starts in one short week. I’m not joking. If I did something […]

    2022-08-13 Denver Road Trip Day 3: This could really be a good good life…

    Day 3 of our little road trip adventure and it was definitely a busy one.  “We” started the day by hitting the free breakfast at the hotel which was terrible. So bad that we had to get donuts elsewhere before moving along to the next thing. I say “we” in quotes because yours truly hasn’t […]
