I hope everyone is having a happy holiday weekend! I have eaten a chocolate bunny, participated in an Easter egg hunt, had french toast, and gotten a temporary tattoo (of a unicorn!) so I feel that I have celebrated well. Today I'm sleeping off the sugar coma, editing, and enjoying the nice seasonable breeze in … Continue reading Ate Too Much for Any Springing
Here in the US, spring has arrived! The trees are mating! Bugs are being born! Flowers are blooming! My wardrobe is very confused about the number of appropriate layers! All of that aside, it's also the start of the marathon of weddings, baby showers and other fetes. I love weddings and celebrating new humans and … Continue reading Please Just Tell Me What To Get You
There was a brief period when I was a kid where everyone wanted to be multitaskers. "I can multi-task," the business people would say, palm pilot in one hand and coffee mug in another. Teachers started breaking up segments of instruction into smaller chunks, and sensory stimulus were included in our lessons. It was glorious. … Continue reading So, Are You Single (Tasking)?
Today I have: Cleaned the kitchen Read a bunch Put a corned beef in a crock pot Taken three naps I realize this may be taking "lazy Sunday" a bit far, but I've had a very active couple of days and, unfortunately, a few nights more active than I'd like, so today I'm doing my … Continue reading The Quiet (Wo)Man
I have so many things I want to write about, but I had my circadian rhythm inverted yesterday and I can't do the words out loud today. Here is a summary of my week: -I would pay so much money for unlimited skillet cornbread -Epic does not mean confusing AF -Brain weasels should be banned … Continue reading The Brain Won’t Do The Thing Today
I talked last week about how to support people, with some significant caveats. Today, I want to talk about people who are toxic, taxing, or too far above your ability to heal. Who the hell am I you ask? I'm nobody, really. I'm not a mental health professional or life coach. I'm just someone who … Continue reading Putting On My Oxygen Mask First
When we were kids, my parents made us try a bite of every food someone served us. Being relatively picky eaters, they quickly realized that we'd need an appropriate way to say that we'd rather die than eat one more bite of this hell-sludge. They settled--fairly hastily, I think--on "it's not my favorite" as the … Continue reading Agreeing On How We Disagree
First off, thank you to everyone who helped vote for my book title! I appreciate that so much! And now, let me sing you the song of my people. Overwrought outlines and bins of like-food stuffs, Folded up undies and socks, that's the good stuff. Cute little dishes to hold both my rings, These are … Continue reading Neat-Oh!
This time last year, I was feeling ready. I was prepared for what the year would bring. I was going to fight them on the beaches, on the Twitters and on the tumblrs. Or so I thought. And then 2018 came at us like Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog and I ran away. So this year I'm moving through like … Continue reading 2019 Needs More Cake (And Fewer Poison Arrows)
Another year over. I had three goals this year. I was going to read more purposefully, finish my third book, and eat honey cake as often as possible. I'm at two of three, but I'm hoping there's a curve. Especially since I've really eaten so much honey cake. Sort of ironically, I didn't put health goals … Continue reading A Year In Reviews
