The War On Girls

This country, boy I tell ya… we make it hard on our girls. I can’t speak to other countries’ culture surrounding beauty and acceptance because I’ve only lived here. I’ve only been a girl and a woman here, and I’ve only ever been Plus Size. My daughter has always been tall. Always. She was tall […]

Life Fatigue

I wonder if adulting has always been this hard. I dont consider my own Adulting began until I was about 23/24.

New Normal…?

This is beginning to feel bottomless. Endless. Hard not to panic with how much more time we’ll be home …. with our families. I love my family. Promise. I do. I even like some of them. But this is pushing my limits as an independent, happy-to-fly-solo for things kinda gal. I go to movies alone. […]

Selfish and Losing It

I’ve been accused many times of being selfish. To an extent it’s true. Lately I have been feeling torn between overwhelming stress and anxiety and wanting to “self care” and instantly feeling like doing so means i’m being selfish. The management/mismanagement of my kids’ distance learning is really high on my To Stress List. I […]
