Things are hard, and today I need to feel it.
Happy Thanksgiving, friends! I suppose I should say Happy Belated Thanksgiving, but I've never been one to only celebrate on the day. We're still celebrating at our house and will continue on through the weekend. I hope those of you who celebrate enjoyed your time with your loved ones and had all the delicious foods … Continue reading Gratitude Part 2 – Kickass Single Mom Emma Johnson
I assure you I am most definitely adult-worthy if we're referring to trips around the sun. Lately, though, I realize that I've lost some skills in the ten-plus year span of birthing and raising children. A lot has happened in ten years. Currently, I'm attempting to make sense of some seemingly basic stuff that I … Continue reading Will I Ever Be a Grown-up?
Y'all. I swear. Some days all I can do is laugh...because really there are simply no words. Since I told you about my Lexapro flu in my last post, I'll pick up from there. I went for my three-week follow-up on Wednesday, and he convinced me to give Vyvanse another go. So far so good. … Continue reading Couples With ADHD
I've shared in previous posts that I'm slogging through what feels like a significant depression. I feel like I can't move myself and trudge through the daily tasks. The simplest things take what feels like a herculean effort, and lately I'm just not up for any of it. Then there's the anger. So much anger. … Continue reading Does the Why Even Matter?
Sometimes I find myself full of advice. I have these sparks of wisdom, though it's rare that I share them for fear of looking like a know-it-all. I SO don't know it all. Occasionally, though, words fly out of my mouth before I'm able to hit the pause button and self-edit...and it's a good thing. … Continue reading Moments That Matter
It's Friday...hello, call me Captain Obvious. I'm welded to my couch and have little interest in separating myself from it. This is the first day of the week where I haven't had to rush out the door first thing in the morning. It's been a busy one with no end in sight. So many thoughts … Continue reading Writing Through the Unpretty
If I ever get around to posting all the thoughts in my head and notes scribbled in my journal, I won't know what to do with myself. It's been a hectic few weeks as we prep for a new school year while moving boxes out of our old house as we get it ready for … Continue reading So Many Thoughts on a Steamy Friday…
Going to a wedding reception used to be a simple affair...before I became a parent. It was typically a celebratory event and even though there were times I wasn't sold on whether the couple was going to be together til death did them part, I was happy to partake in free food, booze and live … Continue reading Rants and Recipes (if you read to the end)
I've mentioned that I have focus issues. I know. I repeat myself regularly. Stay with me. I'll do my best to not bore you with the ALL the hairy details. Recently, I was talking to a friend who's also a busy mom. She takes care of her small farm, runs a business, and is active … Continue reading Smartphone Quandary
