I am learning to love the sound of my feet walking away from things that aren’t good for me. Is that not the best? I saw it posted this morning, and I could hear the sound…and it’s sweet. It’s not easy to (a) admit when something is not good for you and (b) walk awayContinue reading “I Am Learning to Love the Sound”

Like Pouring Gas On Anxiety
Anxiety is a bitch. If you’ve experienced it, you know it can be triggered by something big…or insignificant…or come on without warning and for no reason. You just feel freaking nervous…and anxious…and like something bad is about to happen…and you can’t breathe good…and there’s some weird fear thing happening…and you shake a little…. Ridiculous. Today,Continue reading “Like Pouring Gas On Anxiety”
It’s more than just coffee!
When I come into the kitchen in the morning, my coffee is already made. Keith fixes up the pot while he makes his espresso in his machine. Although sort of a tiny thing, it feels peaceful. I feel loved. The day to come may be filled with absolute madness, but in that moment, all isContinue reading “It’s more than just coffee!”
Tourettes is hard.
My 13 year old, Brady, went in to the orthodontist’s office this morning with plenty of anxiety and a lot of tics. I did not go in with her, which is pretty routine, as she was just having a retainer seated.

I don’t want to seeContinue reading “Sick of Shiny”

AWOL…but with permission.
I’ve been AWOL. I never thought I would go without posting a TILT, but it’s been over a week without one. I was pretty committed and swore I’d never do it. But I had permission…from myself. I think sometimes life surrounds us with a hundred little stacks and piles. Stacks and stacks of responsibilities. PilesContinue reading “AWOL…but with permission.”
We can be different if you’re nice. If you’re nice, we can be friends. If we are friends, you can expect my loyalty, grace, and support. We can be different if you’re not nice. If you’re not nice, we can’t be friends. If we are not friends, you can (oddly) still expect my loyalty, grace,Continue reading “Different. Nice.”
Leave A Bottle Day… Let’s go!

I’m just not a morning person. When I have to wake up early, I feel scrunchy, and I just want to cuss. I don’t wake up all sing-songy and pleasant. Nope. Wish I did. Instead, I want to be quiet, move slowly…and bite people. And here I am taking this child to the horse barnContinue reading “Ugggg. Mornings.”
