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 →

I’m Still Laughing

I've always been honest and open with Stella about how we became a family. She knows that I wasn't her first mom, and that she didn't grow in my belly. I tell her she grew in my heart for a really long time, before she even started to grow in her first mom's belly. We... 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 →

No Resolutions

Every year, around this time, people start declaring their life changing resolutions. Let's face it, 95% of those won't even make it to the middle of January. We tend to tell ourselves we'll do things tomorrow, or when we have time. We never have time. Why do we wait until New Year's to make a... Continue Reading →

A Good Year

We are nearing the finish line of 2017, and there are a lot of strong emotions about the year. So many things happened in 2017, and the bad were so breathtakingly awful, that people are having a hard time seeing any good that came from '17 at all. I myself, was a pretty big fan...
