This picture has nothing to do with this post, but I'm trying desperately to pull myself out of my post-vacation funk and thought something colorful might help. The kids have been out of school for a month now, and frankly that's about all I can take. I adore them, but I am summered out. If … Continue reading Summertime and It’s Wild Around Here
I haven't written much about everything we're going through with Piers, mostly because it's taking all of my energy to simply plow through it. Things are better and for that I'm grateful. I took this photo over Easter weekend and it makes me smile every time I see it. I can't begin to describe the … Continue reading His Happy Place

I had made that lovely resolution to kiss him for ten seconds everyday, and as I mentioned, I am failing miserably. I really want to list all the fabulous things … Continue reading Sunday Morning Crashing Down
I need for life to get back to normal. I'm ready for my sweet children to go back to school. They've been out since the 18th. As I'm typing this and trying to work on some other projects, Wallace, my four-year-old is tying up my rain boot with the cord to the blinds in my … Continue reading ‘Tis the Season to Get My House Together
I have to get my anxiety under control. I'm just not sure how to do this. After years of seeing therapists and psychiatrists, I have no confidence whatsoever in any "expert's" ability to adequately treat this condition.Am I so far in the weeds right now that I can't think straight and make a decision on … Continue reading How Can I Tame this Anxiety?
Why is it that as soon as I write about how well things are going, like I did in my last post, THE SHIT HITS THE FAN?!!
