When I decided to start blogging again, I said I would make my mental health priority numero uno. I told myself I wouldn’t stress out if I couldn’t get a post up and that I wouldn’t commit to posting any certain number of times per week/month. After all, this blog doesn’t pay my bills, mkayyyy. When it does, different story. Til then, I’ll post when I feel like it and say what I want to say and do it on my own terms in a way that works for me and hopefully still makes you laugh or helps you in some way. That’s true for all social media.Read more “Maintaining my sanity, sort of”

He would be outside taking care of the plants and come in with a handful of blueberries and blackberries for me while I was working – my favorite.Read more “Beauty in Nature”
It’s Self Love Friday. Love Yourself Friday? FriYAY for Self Care? The name is a work in progress.
My weekends are different now, which is probably obvious and understandable. Weekends with Jason were chaotic and fun with all of the family stuff – sports, being cool parents, etc. We were the fun house for sleepovers. He did all the yard work and I made sure the kids got food and picked up after basically everyone.Read more “It’s Something Friday”
I’ve thought a lot about when I would start blogging again. Now seemed like a good time after everything that’s happened this year. Last Saturday, we – Jason’s 4 kids, his former stepson from a prior marriage, my son, and I – planted Jason’s ashes into a tree. A Japanese Red Maple because he loved Japanese culture, and they have beautiful red foliage, his favorite color.
