Quarantine life has turned me into a sweatpants unicorn. Well, sort of…at least for the last few days. I haven’t wanted to get out of my Rugrats Halloween sweatpants.

Here are some quotes that helped me get here.

A Lovely Father’s Day Weekend

Father’s Day weekend was lovely here in the Bull household. We didn’t do much of anything on Friday night aside from spend time together. On Saturday after meeting up with my cousin to drop off some Unicorn Tears and other things to help her on her fitness journey Then, we took BB to a small water park so that we could enjoy the day together. He loved it. He still remembers how to float on his back, which we taught him last summer, and just loved playing in the water.

Self-Care Isn’t Selfish

Obviously, yall know I work from home. I have one little baby bird still in the nest. He’s one of the reasons I chose to start this crazy, wacky, sometimes stressful, never a dull moment lifestyle. One thing I’ve learned about working from home is that although we certainly have more power over how we work and when we work (unless you’re a remote employee required to keep certain hours), it’s not always easy to keep work and home separated.

If You Want to Be Successful, Change Your Decision Making Philosophy NOW

If there’s one thing I understand, it’s how your immediate situation can affect your decisions. Because I’ve been in some shitty situations. Beyond shitty. Life threatening. Some not so life threatening and yet seriously fucking worrisome “pay the electric or buy groceries” situations. So, believe me when I say that I totally understand how your current environment can (and often should) play (at least) a (small) part in how you make your decisions.  Continue reading “If You Want to Be Successful, Change Your Decision Making Philosophy NOW”

We Didn’t Choose the Real Food Life. The Real Food Life Chose Us!

So, because I know my blog is watched by certain people who know who they are, I thought it would be prudent to educate people on a couple of things.

  1. Yes, we eat primarily fresh fruits and vegetables in this home…particularly during the week. We eat meat maybe once or twice each week. And it’s usually for dinner.
  2. We are clearly not vegetarians, pescatarians, vegans, ovovarians, or any other variation of anything other than omnivores. Even if we were, it’s not against the law.

Carrots, Celery, and All Things Produce (Oh My!)

So, I purchased a juicer last night. It’s nothing extravagant: a Hamilton Beach juicer that cost around $60. Before I went to buy it, I chose some juice recipes. Baby Bull and I then hit up the produce aisle. We buy a lot of fruits and vegetables in general…but there are some we don’t buy because no one eats them. Baby Bull will eat baby … Continue reading Carrots, Celery, and All Things Produce (Oh My!)

The Ugly: Sometimes Shit Just Doesn’t Work Right

I woke up in a great mood. I felt well-rested (rarity). I bopped along through my morning routine knowing full well that I had a day full of shit that must be done. It’s Tuesday…so not only is there client work (probably a good 12 hours of it and here I am blogging at noon…) and some stuff that we needed to do that couldn’t wait. (Some of that is already done and wasn’t really a big deal. When you work from home, you learn to make it…well, work.)

So, how did I go from virtual bliss to a raging dragon? Well…since you asked…  Continue reading “The Ugly: Sometimes Shit Just Doesn’t Work Right”
