    2021-06-03 Coming to a Few Conclusions

    I’ve tried a few times so far this week to write something. It’s just not there, you know, and I’m not inclined to fight it.  The rest of our KC road trip came and went and I began to write about that, but got distracted by life and stuff needing attention.  I’ve wanted to write […]

    2021-05-27 The Elephant in my Heart

    After a time.. feel as though my hiding from the world at large is exhausting. Maybe I’m just exhausted from lack of sleep. No matter how productive I am, it’s not productive enough.  Still..  was looking forward to today when I woke up. Despite the dishes piling up, clumps in the litter box piling up, […]

    All I want for Mother’s Day is to spend the day with my kids. I was going to add not doing dishes but I don’t even care about that. I just want to have a chill day with my people. I’ve texted my son who is at his dad’s house but he probably won’t be […]

    My mom is being discharged from the hospital today. Who gets to deal with getting her home, grocery shopping, fetching a walker, and staying with her at her home to make sure she’s ok and not at risk for falling down or ripping her stitches, ostomy, or drain tubes?  That would be yours truly.  She’s […]

    2021-03-14 Designated Daughter

    The saying “Hurry up and wait” is often attributed to the military but I think is also quite appropriate for the hospitals and medical care. Nothing like waiting around all day for something to happen or change and being disappointed because nothing happens. And why is it that the waiting and nothing is also somehow […]

    It was a good run.. a 33 day streak of posting to this blog. And the day before yesterday I was gonna lose my step streak and declared “no way in hell I’m losing my blogging streak.” Guess I forgot to knock on some wood and the Universe said “that’s ehat you think.” What DID […]
