I just read a post from a fellow blogger about triggers. I understand what happens quite well, I lived with them for years. I had a tiny bit of a reminder yesterday but I'm glad to say I quickly side-stepped it and moved on, mostly. Obviously I still remember but it's not something I'm dwelling … Continue reading At the oddest moments
This month has been a 'tough' one for many reasons. The boys both doing online summer school and neither of them really wanting or trying. That leaves a lot of 'heavy lifting' in the motivation department for mom. Me not working, which you would think was a great thing, but I haven't been able to … Continue reading Always on my mind ….
Boy, yesterday hit me like a ton of bricks, or car, maybe a car ... yeah, that's a better choice.. I felt like I had been run over, honestly! Every single inch hurt. The Bear was trying to play around and be cheeky and just his touching my knee hurt like the dickens! (I have … Continue reading A lot better today! 😀
I love my children, I don't regret having them and I don't blame them for anything. We have had plenty of hard times but plenty of good ones too. Don't misunderstand what I'm trying to say here. Everywhere I read about moms excited and fulfilled by having children and raising them and being moms. The … Continue reading Truths no one wants to hear.
So many things with the oldest I never know just how to put it down 'on paper' and have it come out right. The nuances are so many that it really is hard to say it in just one post! He's still dragging his feet with school. Part of that is he's lazy, I know … Continue reading The double edged sword
This wasn't what I was going to ramble about this morning, but it came to mind so here we go! *wink* About a year ago now we were running around trying to do all sorts of things to pretty and prepare the yard for a huge party! If you've been here a while you might … Continue reading Funny how life comes around.
Trying to talk to my oldest is always an ordeal. I really should just leave it to the Bear to do. Problem is the Bear doesn't understand everything I 'see' in a situation and trying to get all the information across can sometimes be a challenge. Then again, now that I think on it, it might … Continue reading OYE! A ramble ….
I have very high standards, especially compared to what I have seen as of late. I don't however have extreme expectations, or so I don't think so. I conduct myself in such a way as to be okay 'for me'. My strengths and my weaknesses are my own just as yours are your own. I … Continue reading And the winner is ….
Today my finger tips are numb .... on the opposite hand than usual! LoL Never a dull moment. It's from my shoulder, down my arm and to my fingers. Nothing new just on the other side. OYE Some days I feel like I'm better and some days I feel like I'm back tracking. Trying to … Continue reading Russian Roulette
I had this conversation the other day with my soon to be sister-in-law. She was trying to explain to me what it's like for an introvert to be and deal with the world. Apparently I'm still good at hiding .... LoL I have a feeling she has figured it out now, she might of course … Continue reading Introverts, Extroverts and the world
