Sorry I’m Late…

“Sorry I’m late. I didn’t want to come.” Have y’all seen that? It’s how I’ve been feeling about TILTs and posting until I can get this week behind me. Whew! I bought myself this book to start next week, but I couldn’t wait. I’m about 15 pages in, and there are so many gems, IContinue reading “Sorry I’m Late…”

Counting The Minutes

I’m tired. Really tired. Are y’all? I never want to wish my life away at all, and I try not to want time to hurry up, but I’m ready for this break. There will be no girlbossing starting Friday. I anticipate only girlresting, girlreading, and of course, some girldrinking. I’ve got mimosa and spiked hotContinue reading “Counting The Minutes”

It’s more than just coffee!

When I come into the kitchen in the morning, my coffee is already made. Keith fixes up the pot while he makes his espresso in his machine. Although sort of a tiny thing, it feels peaceful. I feel loved. The day to come may be filled with absolute madness, but in that moment, all isContinue reading “It’s more than just coffee!”

Vulnerability Is Terrifying

“Vulnerability is terrifying.” That was the first line of a meme I saw this morning. So true. To be authentic takes vulnerability, and because it truly is terrifying to put yourself out there, that may explain why people don’t seem very “real” these days. They’re scared. I think people are walking around with their guardsContinue reading “Vulnerability Is Terrifying”

Different. Nice.

We can be different if you’re nice. If you’re nice, we can be friends. If we are friends, you can expect my loyalty, grace, and support. We can be different if you’re not nice. If you’re not nice, we can’t be friends. If we are not friends, you can (oddly) still expect my loyalty, grace,Continue reading “Different. Nice.”

Leave A Bottle Day… Let’s go!

In case you didn’t know, you need to hit the road. It’s national “Leave A Bottle of Wine on the Porch of a Friend Who’s Struggling Day”. 🍷 If you see it here on social media, it must be true, right? I mean “Daughter’s Day” caught on, and that’s never been a thing. Anyway…I’m stillContinue reading “Leave A Bottle Day… Let’s go!”

Thankful today.

It’s a beautiful day, and I’m thankful for a whole lot of stuff. What about y’all? I’ve got coffee…and a few groceries. I think we’re having chili for supper, because I’ve got the stuff to make that. My hubs is the freaking cutest. He’s smart and kind, too, and a good kisser. He’s hard workingContinue reading “Thankful today.”

Things I Learned Today / Sunday, August 15, 2021

Things I learned today… I started to crochet a blanket last night, and I had forgotten how much I loved it. While I was yarning over and hooking and turning, I realized that a crocheted blanket is one continuous string of yarn that is continuously looped and pulled to make stitch after stitch. The stitchesContinue reading “Things I Learned Today / Sunday, August 15, 2021”

Opportunities, PTSD & Vikings: Day After Surgery

I remember thinking people would probably send carnations. We would probably receive a “Get Well Soon” flower delivery or two. Keith would wake up groggy and be in some pain. He would have sutures and a surgery wound to deal with, and he would be sore. It would take time to get his gut workingContinue reading “Opportunities, PTSD & Vikings: Day After Surgery”

Opportunities, PTSD & Vikings: Surgery Eve

August 9, 2015, was a Sunday. We packed a bag or two to head to the hospital early on Monday morning. Keith completed all the pre-surgery protocols the week prior, so he was ready. Check-in would be bright and early. Keith’s colon cancer (adenocarcinoma) was discovered at a “routine” colonoscopy. I use quotation marks becauseContinue reading “Opportunities, PTSD & Vikings: Surgery Eve”
