    2022-03-23 One Blog Post to Rule Them All…

    Spoiler alert: This will be my last post for the foreseeable future. And it is a long one.   A lot has happened in my life these past 5 years and much of it has been captured in the virtual pages of this space. I created this blog in 2017 when I was literally on the […]

    2022-01-07 Kind of a White Rabbit Start to 2022 🐇🐇🐇

    There’s something about the end of one year and the start of another that puts me in a tizzy if I don’t have time to reflect on the past and also spend time musing about resolutions and planning my goals for the coming year. In case you haven’t noticed, I’m very goal oriented. Checking things […]

    2021-12-26 The Christmas Unwrap 🎄🌟🎁

    Hello Friends. It’s been a strange holiday indeed. Where to begin? Where to begin? How about everything that feels normal? Both of my kids have been home since last Monday, almost a week and that, in and of itself, is comforting. Even if they are independent and don’t really need me anymore, it is nice […]

    2021-11-28 Parenting Through Tough Situations + The MOST Disturbing Dream

    Yesterday my primary concern was the argument my children found themselves in after a rotten turn during a board game we were playing. Yes, I said a board game.

    2021-11-11 Doing Something is Better than Doing Nothing

    My husband Jim had said several days ago that I should “wait a week” and see how I feel. Ok.  Two nights ago I talked with him again and he’s come around to my line of thinking. He said that he will support me in my decision to see a counselor/therapist. Honestly, I don’t even […]

    2021-11-09 Do I Need Help? 🤔

    About a month ago, before I went on my vacation to Oregon I finally told my husband Jim I was serious about finding a counselor or therapist. I elaborated on my reasoning and the thought processes that led me to the conclusion that therapy could help me. I clearly have issues I’m struggling with that […]

  • 2021-11-04 Signs of Change

    Lately it is so strange that each day feels nothing like the day before. One would think that at my age, shit would start being more predictable. Predictable like.. boring and comfortable. But ohhhhh those mood swings and ahhhhh that unpredictability. One night I get a great night’s sleep and the next night sucks ass. […]

    2021-09-10 What’s New for Little Miss S?

    What a doozie?! What’s up? What’s down? What repeats and goes round and round?…  “Little Miss S in a mini-dress” What can I say? I’m a hot mess this week. Physically, mentally, emotionally. Monday was a holiday and I was already so done with “taking care” of the household I just wanted to be left […]
