    2023-01-02 Enough is Enough Already…

    I’m always prone to being distracted by the new shiny. I think it’s only human. Routine and the cadence of up and down are also very human traits, for most people. I suppose there are some who thrive in chaos but I’m not among them.  It’s a new year and this is (at least) my […]

    2022-12-26 And That’s a Wrap… 🎄

    Christmas is all but over for another year and that’s ok by me. My highlight was getting to spend Christmas Eve night and Christmas morning with my family and my kids. We have our little traditions and that’s enough for me. The rest of it I can definitely do without.  In truth, if we could […]

    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 […]

    2022-05-24 Stacation Sensation…

    Last week I was on Stacation all week as most of the household was away on vacation. I’m not gonna lie.. it was glorious. The first half of the week was crazy-busy and after that took a few more days to wind down, but I did end up finding a good balance with work and […]

    2022-05-08 A Million Little Things…

    Lately I’ve been wasting time watching more shows than I normally do. When I say “normally” I mean that normally I don’t watch shows at all unless Jim and I are sitting down for a chill hour of TV in the evening. And when I say “lately” I suppose I mean for the past nine […]

    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 […]
