Adult Coloring Books

I admit it… I’m a sucker for anything that brings with it a feeling of nostalgia. Naturally, after seeing a coloring book marketed towards adults, I knew I’d eventually get one. I’d actually been wanting one since around January. I’d read that it’s super healthy for combating stress hormones in the brain. It helps you relax, lets your brain de-stress,… Read more →

Four Word Horror Story

Today, as I was scrolling through my Facebook feed, I came across a post that really caught my interest. It was a game where you create the most horrific story you can with just four words.

Book Review – Men and Other Mammals

I recently finished reading a really good book: Men and Other Mammals by Jim Keeble. I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I picked it up at a used bookstore for about two dollars.

Running Behind

I started out waking up at like 7am this morning. That’s about normal, if not a bit early for me. Since my little one still wakes often throughout the night, I sleep in as late as the kids will let me. But, regardless, I always wake up tired. Anyway, I thought, “Sweet. I’ll be able to get a jump on… Read more →
