Things I’ve Learned / Wednesday, December 22, 2021

Yesterday did not turn out how I thought it would when I woke up in the morning and planned my day…but in a GREAT way! After I picked up Brady from horse, Keith had a couple of surprise places for us to go. He took off work, met us, and off we went. First stopContinue reading “Things I’ve Learned / Wednesday, December 22, 2021”

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”

Stupid Stuff I Do

I’m a real piece of work sometimes… I log into Zoom calls and can’t get in, then wonder what’s wrong. The meeting is tomorrow. I make a point to buy heavy cream for my coffee at the grocery store, because I’m out at work and can’t enjoy my coffee without it. Then I leave itContinue reading “Stupid Stuff I Do”

Like Pouring Gas On Anxiety

Anxiety is a bitch. If you’ve experienced it, you know it can be triggered by something big…or insignificant…or come on without warning and for no reason. You just feel freaking nervous…and anxious…and like something bad is about to happen…and you can’t breathe good…and there’s some weird fear thing happening…and you shake a little…. Ridiculous. Today,Continue reading “Like Pouring Gas On Anxiety”

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!”

Tourettes is hard.

My 13 year old, Brady, went in to the orthodontist’s office this morning with plenty of anxiety and a lot of tics. I did not go in with her, which is pretty routine, as she was just having a retainer seated. As a result of her anxiety, she walked into the office making some soundsContinue reading “Tourettes is hard.”

Hierarchy of Leftover Candy Standards

Here’s how it always works out… Supreme Candy Preference (Highest Standard) This candy will be eaten first.  When you need a pick-me-up, yummy treat, and optimal dopamine boost, it’s your go-to.  In this case, I choose Almond Joy.  Don’t come at me.  AlmondContinue reading “Hierarchy of Leftover Candy Standards”

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.”
