I have always wanted to write. I have, actually, for years. But I don't think the adolescent ramblings of a tween or the documentation tendencies of a young adult count. I've recently reread them. So I can tell you, they don't. Now I need a place to be free. Unfettered. As I figure out this new space and place in my life. Business owner. Mother. Daughter. Sister. Friend. And now reconciled wife.


Grab a cup, sit on the comfy couch and chat with me.

There are things that won't change. People are who they are to some degree. Plus, you don't want to change entirely. There has to be some part of the person you hitched your wagon to that remains. But that's not what I am talking about. I am talking about our cell phon...

Saw this fella on my walk the other night. Listen, Universe, I don't need another reason NOT to exercise. So sending the Green Goblin/Evil Garden Warlock/Beelzebub is unnecessary. If you don't see it, get your eyes checked. That thing is THERE!

Did I stare that thing d...

Fuck that. Not gonna happen. Hahahaaaaa.

Though I wish. Maybe a trip down Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Or Dumbledore's pensieve. Give my brain and emotions some space and rest.

Barring those, I am who I am. A girl whose brain has a ridiculous amount of storage....

This is what I have learned. It is not a light switch. Not that it can't happen in a moment. It can. But, well, it doesn't. I don't think. I don't think the forgiveness happens in a moment. I think the moment represents when you realize you have forgiven. Or healed. Or...

I guess I shouldn't be surprised. My people are happy to be on the bus with me. Because lots of us are struggling in some way. So my struggle bus has turned into our party bus. Not shocked at all. It's who my friends are. It's who I am. It's what I do. I collect people...

Marriage is hard, you lot.

Parenting is hard, too. 

So, you know, I have been on the struggle bus. With so many moving parts, it's hard not to feel like I am on one of those medieval torture devices. I was going to say stretch machine but, really, nope. That's not what i...

Listen, you lot, I have been on the narwhal train for many years. I have a thing for unusual animals. The platypus is and always has been my favorite. Maybe I like the underdog. The misunderstood. Wouldn't be my first unusual love/relationship. Anyway, I have loved nar...

There are some things about the reconciliation that are easy. Like being with that friend that you haven't seen in forever but there is no awkwardness. There is a familiarity and ease that is easy to become accustomed to again. Lots of remembering and falling into old...

Last weekend we went on a date. We are trying to do that more often. Not just regarding time but with intention. We arrived, ordered our beers, checked them in to Untappd and out our phones away. We allowed for some kid talk and then moved on to us. A little check-in....

I needed this reminder. As much as I needed to remember to stay in my lane. Nobody can do this work for me. Nobody's opinion about this work matters more to me than the four humans I share my home with.

This is an interesting season. Once more one of growing pains and r...
