August Panic

I have to write a new post just so I am not tempted to go back and re-read the last one. It’s been three days and the sight of my lost Barney brings all the tears right back. So I’m switching the channel for myself. It’s roughly mid-August right now. Our schools go back September […]

The sad part

Let me tell you the story of Barney Rubble, my corgi mix rescue. Roughly thirteen years ago my little family went looking for a rescue at the local pet store. Out front was a gaggle of dogs in pens waiting to be adopted. In one pen was a long dark mix that would stand on […]

Take Up Space

I have been issued a challenge by my therapist: “Take Up Space. Literally, take up more space.” I feel I am not alone in being a forty-something mom, wife (though separated at the moment), professional, who considers a billion factors before getting around to prioritizing something for myself. I grew up being alone a lot […]

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 […]

Football 101

I survived football camp! I have so many feelings about this experience, so forgive me if this ends up being a bit all over the place. I was so nervous to take on this assignment. I had all the self doubt I could muster. I had lots of worry about keeping up with the lingo, […]

I’m Going To College!

… but just for 3 days. I am going with another interpreter to work at a football camp. After committing, I found out I’ll be staying in a dorm room in a sleeping bag. Tricky bastards. This will be physically interesting. Thankfully they will house any female staff away from the males. Not sure how […]

The Good Old Brain

I remember the good old brain days when simple things did not overwhelm me. This is no longer the case. I suppose the more shit you pile on top of your inner noggin, the less space there is for more crap…. kind of like my garage. One more teetering box is just asking to fall […]

Flappy Hands

I’m a working educational interpreter again! Huzzah! It has felt amazing to be back at work, even if it’s just part time. Part time is the sweet spot, y’all. It’s a lot of purpose with a little bit of commitment. I have not worked in a decade and SO much has changed. First and foremost, […]

Front Row

I have been sitting in the front row of the strangest, most frustrating, confusing and unjust scenario possible in a neighborhood. I have so many feelings about this that I can’t even process them all so naturally, I come here to open up my cranium and let my thoughts spill out willy nilly on the […]

Feelings About Ford

What a woman. I actually watched her testimony today. I didn’t rely on news outlets or the narrow-minded reactions of some of my family members posting on social media. I wanted to see it for myself. I’m so glad that I did. Let me just say I didn’t want to believe her. That’s easy, right? […]
