I dunno about yall, but it’s been a long a long year. Like most sites, I’ve put together a summary of the top posts of the year. Beyond that, I’ve put together a short commentary of what it tells me about you, my faithful freelance readers.Continue reading “Top 20 Posts of 2020”
Blessed Mabon to my all-inclusive and non-gender-specific fellow pagans, heathens, Christian witches, and anyone else who considers the fall equinox as Mabon. Don’t forget to bake some fucking bread, be thankful for your harvest, and do something nice for the faeries lest they hide your fucking shoes like they did mine… AND I ALWAYS LEAVE THEM AN OFFERING. Of course, I full well know their doings could be a lot worse than moving my shoes from one room to another.Continue reading “Shit I Say: Mabon Edition”
Yeah, I know…it starts with a clean house. Also, we have three dogs. We love our dogs. We also had Uriel’s pandemic birthday party (which consisted of us, his two adult brothers, his aunt and uncle, and another uncle). I usually call him BB for Baby Bull. He’s 11 now and not a baby anymore. Sigh.Continue reading “Monday Makery: Getting That Clean House Smell”
Unfortunately, I deal with chronic migraines. Not just chronic migraines, but hemiplegic migraines. And sometimes I do manage to get a migraine without the migraine, but with several other hemiplegic symptoms. Thankfully, I’ve gotten into a routine as a work from home mom that allows me to function most days, which is, frankly, most chronic migraine sufferers wet dream since a new medication only comes out about every 20 years…and it’s usually so goddamn expensive that most people can’t afford it.Continue reading “How I Deal with Chronic Migraines as a Work from Home Mom”
I am a work at home mom. And I have been for several years. I don’t beat around the bush. And I don’t put up with bullshit. I am told in person and online, “I wish I could be more like you.” Most people talk about how they could never do that. They can…they just make an active decision not to do that. Throughout the course of my entire life, I’ve made the active decision to not be like other people for one reason or another. And, yes, let’s call it what it is: judgment. It isn’t an “I’m better than they are” or an “I’m right and they are wrong” scenario (all of the time, anyway). It was 100% an “I don’t want that for me,” and we are all entitled to our own boundaries and desires.
Here are the 7 keys to living my best life as a work from home mom. If you choose to embrace them or only some of them or how your choose to interpret or embrace some or all of them may vary your results because you and I do not live the same life…and you should also make your own decisions and decide what is important to you, your results may vary.Continue reading “7 Keys to Living My Best Life (Your Results My Vary)”
In third grade, I had three teachers because we moved. At the second school, one teacher left so Mrs. Wright became my teacher at John Adams Elementary in Oklahoma City. Then, just like now, I tended to finish my work quickly. Mrs. Wright didn’t care if we finished early as long as we would remain quiet and not disrupt others. We could color, read, or do whatever.Continue reading “How My 3rd Grade Teacher Made Me the Bad Ass Self-Employed Writer I Am Today”
So, today marks one year that I’ve been vegan. I’ve learned a lot over the last year, too.Continue reading “One Year as a Vegan – 5 Things I Learned”
Recently, I came across this really long-winded on article on how to handle it if you come across a sorta kinda friend’s alternative lifestyle profile and how you, personally, should handle it.Continue reading “Find Your Friend’s Alternative Profile? Here’s How to Handle It”
Yesterday was rough. I am very much a realist + opportunist + moderate optimist (meaning I believe in speaking power into my own life as well as into the lives of others while being very mindful of what is actually happening). Like I say, while working from home as a parent means it is always bring your kid to work day, working from home is often romanticized…and even if it isn’t your kid causing shit (because it isn’t always the kid), some days just suck. So, some days you just make the fucking best of it.Continue reading “Some Days, You Just Make the Best of It”
