Welcome to the Neighbourhood

We have an abandoned house across the road from us. It’s very old, has holes in the roof and walls, sits on 70 acres of land, and has a barn where a stray cat we call “Molly’s brother” lives. He’s probably not even related to our cat but we like to think he is. We…

When Your Psych Closes Your File

When you fall off the coo coo wagon the first thing that you should probably do, in my experience, after you’ve cried to yourself in the corner and eaten an entire tub of ice cream, is call your psych. They’re the ones who, besides your spouse, have seen you at your worse. They’ve seen the…

You can call me Tina

On the drive home from school my daughter and I talk about her day. We talk about who she played with, if she had fun, crafts she might have done. Simple things because our drive isn’t that long. I often hear, from other parents at pick up, how much energy my daughter has, how outgoing…

I Don’t Know if This is Even a Post

So used to buying the tiny “panties” that never fit properly, slide down my ass, and creep into my butt I cautiously looked at the underwear made for my size at the store I was in and balked. HA! I don’t need to buy new underwear, the size I’m wearing is fine. And then I…

What my Goal for 2015 Should be

I had a whole list of 20…ok 17 things made up of what would make 2015 great. Things from cleaning the kitty litter regularly to practicing¬†patience to trying a new activity. I looked at the list and became very overwhelmed. I can barely remember to match my socks let alone 20 things to make a…

When Crazy People Text

Not only am I awkward in social situations but I say whatever I’m thinking over text too, then hit send before proof reading or thinking through the pros and cons. This can be weird for both me and the receiver. And I’ve developed texters thumb. Is there a name for this? There should be. —–…
