Firstly, I got a call back from the office. The doctor was running off to an emergency but I was able to email him all the information I wanted to get across and a proper timeline. I feel more confident in my ability to get things straight in writing anyway so that worked out for … Continue reading Break one, to save one?
I don't know if the name of this site is a dead give away or if most of you are only guessing or ignoring it all together! LoL I always pick my words carefully and most often they mean more than just 'a word' that fits. I chose to name the site nijntje's Babadook … Continue reading Ah, the babadook
To say that i'm always in a good mood and wearing a smile is not an overstatement. That's not to say that things are all sunshine and roses, no, that is not what i'm saying. I'm saying that regardless of what's going on around me i choose to stay positive and happy. There is a … Continue reading A chipmunk?
The first time I heard that phrase I really didn't know what to think. How could someone take a day off simply because their mind is not quite right? Your body works, you work. That was the way my mind has always rationalized it, no complaining, no excuses. Hell in my case even if your … Continue reading Mental Health Day
I've been hoping for some fun in life recently, some fun that keeps being just beyond my grasp. Just when I think things will settle and cards will be played and I will finally get to just be 'free' ....... it seems to come and go before my eyes.

I've been waiting on a call or email from the school since this time last week. So far, nothing. I have to get my oldest set up for school and I can't do it alone. His previous emotional trauma has made it so he has no interest in an 'in class' approach to school right … Continue reading And so it begins ….
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 ….
