269/365 SERENITY NOW

I had a really wonderful weekend. I’d even say it was perfect. My girls were home with me for the first weekend in what seemed like forever. Saturday we lounged around all day as the snow fell. I hate to brag, but both days I made breakfast that didn’t pop up out of the toaster.  Seriously. Saturday night we had friends over for dinner – … Read More 269/365 SERENITY NOW

Day 156/365 I Am Not A Rock Star

Some dear friends of mine from high school, and my cousin, Jay, are in a band together. I love these men, but aside from Jay, I don’t really get to see them too often. Last night they played at a house party. When I got to the party there were so many old friends whom I don’t see often enough. So, due to being … Read More Day 156/365 I Am Not A Rock Star

Day 140/365 Cleansing Myself of Happiness

Lately I have been feeling really unhealthy, physically (we shall leave the discussion of my mental illness for another time). My dad died back in January, and at some point thereafter I did a 180 from not having any appetite, to wanting to eat pretty much anything that was not strapped down. I’ll be honest, I felt an extreme sense of entitlement toward bread and … Read More Day 140/365 Cleansing Myself of Happiness

130/365 “The Monthly Bill”

Over the past few weeks, I’ve noticed that I have started to feel a lot better. I’ve been generally happy and grateful, and not easy rattled. Today, that seemed to come to an abrupt halt. I was driving to work, thinking about everything that has transpired in my life over the past year and a half, and I felt the emotions sweep over me … Read More 130/365 “The Monthly Bill”

Day 129/365 Baring One’s Pincers

Sometimes you start your day with a spring in your step, and the next thing you know you’re falling on your face. Or you settle in to a warm, dark, cozy spot and wind up nearly crushed to death by a giant toe. Wait, what? I got a great night sleep last night. This is the girls’ one and only week of summer camp, … Read More Day 129/365 Baring One’s Pincers

Day 125/365 Messy Inside

I was looking for something in one of my kitchen cabinets this morning and I chuckled to myself about how there is absolutely no organization nor reason whatsoever to it’s contents. I have a lot of family and friends staying with me over the course of the summer and I wondered if that would bother anyone. Then I started to think…actually, this is a … Read More Day 125/365 Messy Inside

Day 121/365 Rescue Attempt

My eldest turned eleven today.  Let me tell you, she is such a beautiful soul. She has so much depth and intuition at her young age. It was very strange this morning waking up on her birthday, and not being with her. She had spent the night at her dad’s.  I called and sang to her (bless her for tolerating that!), and I knew … Read More Day 121/365 Rescue Attempt
