can’t choose a title.

My brain is in a million places and in response to that anxiety it is also avoiding everything possible. A mental health paradox I suppose. I couldn’t decide on what to call this post though some examples would be: unhealthy avoidance 1 million mental pounds everything feels overwhelming FUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCKKKKKK So I avoided choosing and justContinue reading “can’t choose a title.”

brave.

Bravery exists in so many forms. Sometimes is trying something new. Other times it’s knowing enough about yourself not to try. Whatever form it takes, it’s always pretty amazing. We started our trip by hitting H2OBX (water park) on our way down to the Outer Banks yesterday. Before we had even left the hotel, myContinue reading “brave.”

tornado warnings, tacos and gratitute.

I started mentally writing this post the other day when I received a gift in the mail from a friend. A gorgeous human being that I get to call “framily” pre-ordered me a book that combines my love of yarn, my love of crochet and my love of Harry Potter! Now, a few points toContinue reading “tornado warnings, tacos and gratitute.”

make a wish.

How do you make wishes? I’ve seen wishes made when candles are blown out and on stars. Wishes can be made on dandelion clocks or at certain times of the day and apparently with just a glass of water and some intention. At our house we some times make wishes on eyelashes that have fallenContinue reading “make a wish.”

summer break, pt. 1

Summer vacation is here and we are in that transition period between the end of school and the start of the summer activities we planned for the kids. My daughter started her rec program already but my boys are home until Friday when their ESY program starts so its been a little… um… hectic. StartedContinue reading “summer break, pt. 1”

on it goes.

Thought we had enough crazy for one week? HA! Silly fools. It never ends here! Last night the little one started to stir around 1:45 am. This never means anything good for me. After tossing and turning and drinks of water and trips to the bathroom he decided he needed to educate me on howContinue reading “on it goes.”

short shorts.

While getting cozy in yesterday’s heat I slipped on a freshly washed pair of shorts. I quickly realized they were probably not mine, like, they belonged to my daughter. Tighter and shorter than I typically sport my clothes but I was too lazy and unmotivated to change and they fit well enough for me toContinue reading “short shorts.”

special education.

Four of my five children have required IEPs or 504s during their school careers. I have attended so many meetings and evaluations over the years and it can be pretty overwhelming. The first two kids to go through school were both sent for evaluations through the child study team during pre-k. We were lucky enoughContinue reading “special education.”

foxes, ear vacuums and spray bottles.

Also, painting tape, popcorn kernels and suspected murder. It’s been an adventurous few days here. Yesterday I had to get two different kids to two different doctors while working and making it back online for a scheduled meeting at 4 pm. Add lack of sleep due to the urine incident (you can read about thatContinue reading “foxes, ear vacuums and spray bottles.”

least favorite wake-up call?

What is your least favorite way to be woken up? I have a few, this one is pretty tops though. Around 2 am I woke, drenched in sweat. This happens to me sometimes, even though I’m nowhere near menopause because my hormones are assholes. Yuck, I should get up and change but I can’t seemContinue reading “least favorite wake-up call?”
