Just Another Positive

Tested positive for Covid today. *horror music plays* I document most other events, why not this too? So I started feeling crummy Monday morning. I tested negative but stayed home for 3 days because I was achy and dizzy and had a horrible sore throat. Breathing through my nose just fine, but congestion was way […]

Flagtacular

Non-binary. What? What the hell is that? What is wrong with kids these days? Can’t they just pick a gender? Why do they have to make everything so complicated?! If it was my kid … So it is. It is my kid. Now what? This isn’t a place you expect to be. I never thought […]

It Is Time

It’s time for an update. Why? Because I don’t want to study Child Psychology right now. You’re welcome. I had an emotional meltdown at school today. (school = work) Here’s a tip: If you have a stressful life, work at a school. While it does add even more stress, nothing will turn your day around […]

SAY GAY

This Bill. This massive red flag of a Bill is going to do nothing but add fire to what is already an out of control bonfire of a divide in this country. The way the general public receives information these days is dangerous. Not only because there is seemingly nowhere simple to go to get […]

Sanity Test

I wouldn’t say I was a “well balanced” individual originally, but I was pretty smart, perceptive, patient…. oh the amount of patience I once had! I was silly and didn’t take life too seriously. Cut to one pandemic, one husband, a gay teenager and a miniature more sarcastic, more sassy 11 year old version of […]

Wake the sleeping teen, do all the am Mom things, then repeat the whole act for scene 2 with the pre-teen. Breakfast ☑️ Kids all on busses☑️ On time for work WITH coffee (made […]

Zen or Ostrich

I am a grateful woman. I will not say “lucky” because nothing was handed to me. I have fought for my husband, for my kids, and now for myself. I am appreciative of the things I have because I know what my life was before all of the “things”. I do not dwell in struggle. […]

Accidentally Boujie

I heard a joke a while back from a comedian that when they were little, the family couldn’t afford for them to be asthmatic or lactose intolerant. I cannot pretend this isn’t true for me. I recently had my food allergies tested and found that I am ✨sensitive✨ to most of the foods I ate. […]

Geriatric School

I had the bright idea 2 months ago to go back to school and get my AA and then a teaching degree. Have I had a stroke? No. Not that I know of. I’m just a glutton for doing things the hard way. 45 and paying someone to teach me math. Math that I failed […]

Teen Parenting

This shit is not for the weak. When I had little babies I remember parents of teens commenting on how they’d love to switch places with me and my toddler. Sometimes even mid-grocery-store tantrum. I would just look at them like, “WTF are you saying to me right now?! Your teen can wipe his own […]
