I just hung up the phone with a friend and am struggling to make sense of the last hour. She talked. I listened. I'm not sure why, but she chose me to tell all the things. The unpretty. I wish I had sent her to voicemail, and for that I feel like the most ample … Continue reading Upretty Secrets
It's amazing how much better things look after a night of good sleep. I was vague yesterday, as I often am when trying to work out stuff in my mind. The short: This summer has been full of challenges in a variety of realms, but both Gil and I have noticed an increase in … Continue reading Parenting With ADHD Feels Impossible: Part 2 — A Better Morning & Insight Into My Oldest Son
Moving might just do me in, y'all. I'm as crabby as they come. Apparently, Gil, in his get-it-done mindset, told our children to pack their stuff... then beebopped off to his office. Can I punch him, please? Guess what? They inherited their packing skills from their father. They open a box and … Continue reading Nothing’s Going Well Tuesday
I'm procrastinating and avoiding. I'm showing up here because I have to process some heavy things, and blogging is available and cheap. Life has been stressful lately... for multiple reasons. I'll start with the first one: We began the new year with lots of doctor visits for Piers. Nothing is conclusive yet. The short version … Continue reading Here I Go Again With the Ugly… Part 1 — Piers
http://elitedaily.com/life/10-things-that-the-people-who-love-their-lives-are-doing-differently/598934/ Hope you all are well. We're knee-deep in getting-out-of-school mode, so things are busy. Good busy, but my already limited organizational skills are being stretched to capacity. I was feeling slightly stressed this morning, but then I came across the above article, and it gave me some peace. It's so easy to get caught … Continue reading Can We Take It Down a Notch On Social Media?
Yesterday I shared some of my ongoing saga with my mother. You can read the backstory here. Today is proving to be a hectic day, so I don't know if I'll have time to write a proper post. I did leave you hanging with my last post so I'll go ahead and post the email … Continue reading The Email Part 2
So I haven't blogged in over a month, and I woke up this morning with an unquenchable urge to pour my heart out to the internet. Actually, I don't think this is so much the case but rather my head is all over the place, and writing is a healthy way to center myself. Let's … Continue reading For the Love! Why Can’t I Just Eat?
I found out on Thursday morning that my closest friend is moving. I'm beyond upset. Ani and her husband, Zip, have been our best friends for the last four years. They have two girls who are like my own children; Zip and my husband, Gil, play together in a band, and I really don't know … Continue reading I Need a Vacation
My boys have been in school for almost a month now, and I gotta tell you, I'm exhausted. I kept Piers in a half day Pre-K program so that he and Wallace, the three-year-old, would be on the same schedule. Honestly, it's just easier on me that way and I can not fathom getting anyone … Continue reading Morning Madness
One of my biggest fears is that our friends and family will think I ended this marriage because of little things. Part of why I want to write about this is to help me gain some clarity. I still can't decide how to best move forward. Perhaps once I see the reality in black and … Continue reading Big Thing #1
