As of today, we are officially out of Covid time out. We have to continue strict masking for five more days, but we can do necessary things. My poor children have been so cooped up, I decided to break for a little freedom this morning and take them for a hike in the woods. So,Continue reading “good or bad.”

let it out.
I was going to call this “let it go” but then I would have had to belt out the song and honestly, my family gets enough of that nonsense. Last I posted two weeks ago, I wasn’t quite myself, I felt like I was drowning but I’m here to tell you its better. The dayContinue reading “let it out.”
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.”
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.”
mom is closed.
Arriving home from a week away is almost as hectic as trying to leave. There’s the unpacking, the laundry, the vacuuming… you get it. The alarm went off at 7 am and I hopped to it. Took 5 min listening to the ocean before I started running like a mad woman. Cleaned and sanitized theContinue reading “mom is closed.”
Getting ready for a family vacation takes a ton of work. It’s almost like the universe wants to REALLY make sure you appreciate your trip because you had to work so damned hard to get ready for it. Work never fails to explode the week you’re trying to tie up all your loose ends andContinue reading “vacation prep.”
embrace your wild.
Recently I’m noticing a lot more folks embracing their awkward, goofy and maybe slightly odd selves… and I am HERE FOR IT! While there will always be those who think there is one way to do life, I’m finding more and more that people are embracing their authentic traits and it is so liberating andContinue reading “embrace your wild.”
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.”
