Can’t Blame Myself

I’m the poster child for thinking of ways to blame myself when something “goes wrong” with my kids…if they acted irresponsibly, after they said something disrespectful, or best yet, when they got a mental health diagnosis.

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”

We Should Probably Stop

We should probably stop doing that thing where we think the house has to be sparkly clean for somebody to come over.
