Apologies: A tale of truth

Hi Y'all, It has been a LONG time. I have missed writing on my blog and writing in general. The past year has been a blur filled with frustration, love, misery, pain, anxiety, and fulfillment. A lot of emotions in a short time. I apologize for coming and going so often. Five years ago, life... Continue Reading →

Journaling through life

Remember the good ol' days when, as a child, we would write all our hopes, dreams, embarrassing moments, crushes, parent woes, etc. in our diaries? If you didn't, then you missed out on unleashing all your thoughts onto paper then hiding them as if no one could ever find them. My diary back then had... Continue Reading →

yoga to the rescue

2020 has been quite the year. People you know, or you yourself, have lost loved ones, been sick, have friends that are sick and/or in the hospital, stressed to the max at work and at home, etc. I could go on and on. We all have different ways to deal with stress from becoming more... Continue Reading →

Writing during a pandemic

I have had a hard time sitting down to write for quite some time. I keep talking about it and thinking about; however, something always seems to get in the way. I can make the excuse that I don't have time, but I do spend some time on the couch watching Netflix.I can make the... Continue Reading →

Coffee, my love

There is just something special about drinking coffee outside. I am not sure what it is, but when we go glamping, it is the first thing I look forward to. Second being whatever hike we do that day. The last time we went glamping (camping in a cabin or camper versus a tent) was at... Continue Reading →

ART and the Grieving Cave

As a child, my mother made a big deal about making sure her rural county - living daughters were exposed to museums, parks, art, the city, plays, etc. I have wonderful memories of sitting next to her in the field by our house as she sketched. The long grass was itchy, but it didn't seem... Continue Reading →

Quarantine Life

The past two and half months, since schools closed, have been crazy to say the least. COVID-19 has really thrown us all for a loop. The first week schools closed, I admit I was happy. Relieved even because it has been a tough school year. We all thought it was temporary so it felt like... Continue Reading →

QUARANTINE 15

I am a stress eater and dealing with COVID-19 and my mother's death has meant chips, chocolate, and all the other yummies. I call it the QUARANTINE 15. I haven't gained 15 pounds, but it sure feels like it. My jeans are tight around the waist and ass because I have been living in sweatpants... Continue Reading →

Beet healthy

Now that schools are closed, there are so many negatives and positives to being at home all day, every day. Negatives: It is hard to be a teacher and a work-from-home momI want to wear PJs every dayI have no routine Positives: I have more time with my sonI get to wear PJs every dayI... Continue Reading →

Pay it forward

My mother was buried this past weekend. The ceremony felt odd due to it just being immediate family, staying socially distant from each other, not having a gathering afterwards, etc. I brought three roses for her (three for her three daughters) and my son brought this rose for her.┬áIt was his first funeral so for...
