Enough

Do you remember waking up and going to school on Valentine's Day? It was usually a fun day, getting candy and cards. The last thing on any students mind should be if they will leave the school alive, if they will make it home again. On Wednesday, February 14th 2018, 17 lives were taken, and... Continue Reading →

My Real Life Jim Halpert

I've started to write more about my anxiety, which has introduced a lot more feedback from readers, which I love and appreciate. Recently, my friend Alex asked me the perfect question. How do you handle having that level of anxiety and continue to do all the things you have to do in everyday life? I gave him... Continue Reading →

It Wasn’t A Dream

This is why you have kids. It's a sentence that is used in meme's, jokes,  and when you run out of toilet paper in the bathroom. This weekend, I discovered yet another reason why it's super helpful to have kids. Slight back story. The medicine I'm on for severe anxiety gives me ridiculously vivid dreams.... Continue Reading →

Flu You

Wal-Mart. There aren't many places around here I loath more than Wal-Mart. If you read my post Prime Mom, you understand my hatred. I had to brave the Earthly Hell with fluorescent lighting to get Stella a new car seat. It went as well as could be expected. We were standing in an aisle as Stella picked... Continue Reading →

It’s Not You, It’s My Anxiety

I've been going back and forth on writing this post for a while now. I'm one of those people who isn't a fan of being vulnerable or showing signs of weakness. After the month I've been through, and the battle I'm still fighting, I think I've come to realize my anxiety is more of a sign... Continue Reading →

Justice

  As most of the country is aware,  Larry Nassar is a disgusting excuse for a human. His trial, like most, has been publicized for all to watch. He's already been sentenced to 40-175 years on the multiple child abuse charges and a separate 60 years on child pornography charges. The last of his sentencing is... Continue Reading →

January’s the Worst

Welcome to January 287th. If this month is a precursor to the rest of the year I'm enthusiastically waving my white flag. I swear this month has been as long as all of 2017. We should have known when the month started on a Monday, it wasn't going to be pretty. It's cold, and not... Continue Reading →

Life Matters

Monday morning. The most hated of all mornings. This one was no different as we sleepily got dressed and ready for work, and rushed out the door. We were headed to drop off Stella at school and traffic was unusually horrid, even for a Monday. I wasn't driving so most of my traffic words were... Continue Reading →

The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia

Here in the South, football is a little more than a past time, it's in our DNA. You're born being groomed to be a fan of one team or another. In Alabama, it's generally a die-hard rivalry between Alabama and Auburn. Me personally, I only hate one team with every fiber of my being...Tennessee, but... Continue Reading →

Everything Hurts and I’m Dying: A Lesson on Thin Air

This is the story of our winter vacation over the past week. It did not go as planned, to say the least. Be prepared to laugh at my pain. The past week, Kent and I went to Snowshoe for a snowboarding trip. Kent knew what he was doing on a snowboard, I knew what one looked like.... Continue Reading →
