I try really hard to not make the same mistake twice. My mom always said if I got in trouble for something I never got caught doing it again. Is this meant to say that I never did that thing again? Or that I never got caught again? Who's to know? I'd like to think… Continue reading The art of f*cking up
If you've been around here for long you might remember one of my very early blog posts back in 2017 that was about Gaslighting. In that blog post, I mentioned that I'd never heard the term before until I started reading posts by @StillLearning2b on Twitter otherwise known as Lisa Arends. She's a fellow Texan,… Continue reading Lessons from the rear view
Today is one week post op from having total hip replacement surgery and I swear it feels more like a month from my point of view. There have been good days and bad days, a little depression, a few tears but every day gets a little bit better. I've started physical therapy and that is… Continue reading Hello Betty!
I'm back to listening to Podcasts and I'm currently listening to Justin Long's Life is Short and he's interviewing Actor Jeremy Renner. I was struck by something that Jeremy Renner said about advice his father gave him as a new graduate. His father said "Now go out there and fail!" I was struck with how… Continue reading The Gift of F*cking Up
My new high is when I'm in that sweet spot. When it feels so good and I chase it again and again. I'm not talking about alcohol or any kind of illegal high, but I crave it just the same. No, I'm talking about that sweet window...just an hour or two when the ibuprofen stacked… Continue reading The New High in my life
Who doesn't need a hug once in a while from a soft, squishy teddy bear? When life gets to be a little bit too much how do you deal? When the atrocities of the world all get to be a little bit too heavy how do we reconcile that with our sense of gratitude? I… Continue reading Self Care
I have a confession. I can be.....an asshole. One of my Best Girlfriends is having a bit of a time. I won't say she's struggling, because she's not - she kicks ass at everything she touches, but she's admittedly got a lot of balls in the air. She's a Mom of some amazing tiny humans… Continue reading The Amazing Power of Women
As a society, it's my opinion that we don't practice enough self-care. Especially those of us who are single and hustling every day to make that money, be responsible grown ups, pay the bills, go to jobs and somewhere in there nurture our important relationships. Where in there is time to nurture ourselves? Lately I've… Continue reading Self care
Remember when I told y'all that I'm like Rain Man with dates? It's both a blessing and a curse. Two years ago today I came home (It was a Friday) and kicked my husband out of our home. I'd found out he'd been lying about working, he'd been accused of committing a felony and he… Continue reading Two Years Ago Today….
I took this photo on our most recent Sister Birding Adventure. My sister focuses on birds. Birds are her thing. Birds are my thing too, but so is landscape, shape, plants, insects, dead things...yes, I photograph the occasional dead thing, it's ok my sister doesn't get it either. I edited this photo and named it… Continue reading Spider Cactus?
