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”

Yall. I finally finished Morning Meltdown Phase 1 for the second time. I was part of the early training group during the summer. When I decided to part ways as a coach, they took away access to the program that I paid $160 for.
We hear and read a lot about work-life balance. And for women, because that’s all I can speak to directly since that’s my experience, it’s an especially difficult concept. We’re given this ideal of what is considered the perfect woman: must be a mom, must be married, must be a professional, must be at every practice for the kid(s), must help with homework, must have a great relationship with spouse, must keep the home, must give back to the community, must be a solid member of their local church…. And there’s only 24 hours in a day.Continue reading “What If It Isn’t about Balance?”
Today, I’m writing about medical technology licensing. Just a few minutes ago, I showed Bull the hives that resurfaced on my elbows, upper arms, upper legs, and small of my back. I told him that right after I got out of the bath tub (colloidal oatmeal bath), that I felt cold and that I turned off the AC in our bedroom. He noticed the goosebumps … Continue reading Shit I Say: Part 1
I received a letter from J yesterday. For those new to this site, J is our 18 year old son. He is away at Army boot camp. While he is said that, overall, he enjoys the experience, he expressed (a normal amount of) concern about certain things.Continue reading “The Power of What You Say to Yourself”
Well, Independence Day falls on a Thursday this year. For many, that means a four day weekend. As for me, I usually use those quiet holidays as a time to get caught up on various projects.Continue reading “Holiday Week”
This morning, my 18 year old son left for Ft. Jackson. And while I know he’s off to do great things, as I always knew he would, it’s still not an easy thought. I am not entirely sure how my barely six pounds at birth baby who cried a lot and didn’t sleep a single night through until he was five years old (yes, you … Continue reading And He’s Off to Do Great Things
I’m not gonna go into some big long schpiel. I understand the point…the recipe blogs have lots of ads and sponsors…and whatever. I’ll only say one thing before giving you the recipe:
By nondairy, I mean no cow’s milk products. This still contains an egg. I’ve included vegan changes in parenthesis next to the one dairy ingredient and one other ingredient (which is likely unnecessary for those who aren’t brand new vegans…but just in case…)Continue reading “Recipe: Nondairy Vegetarian “Meatballs””
