Month: September 2014


For some reason, my skin doesn’t scar easily. I only have a couple, but I’ve had much worse injuries that didn’t even leave a mark. For instance, when I was about five, I went down this giant slide at the fair, and I slipped off of my little mat. It turned me onto my stomach, and the friction burned the… Read more →

Girl Fight!

I’m not a very violent person. I mean, I’m barely over five feet tall, and I would much rather talk things out. I think physical violence is such a waste of time, and it breaks my heart to hear about or see videos of people being attacked. I can’t watch that kind of stuff. That being said, I have only… Read more →

Slow Monday

Today has been kind of productive, but it never seems to feel like enough. I got up around 8, which was needed because my daughter kept me up until midnight, then woke me up again around 3 am. I am super sleepy now because of the short, broken sleep. We ate some breakfast, and I started watching old episodes of… Read more →

A Not-So-Lazy Sunday

Yesterday was actually a really good day… one of the best I’ve had in a long time. We woke up a little later than usual: around 8:30 am, so we were feeling rested. We got up, came downstairs, and had some breakfast. We started watching Dexter on Netflix, and I’ve become a huge fan. I’ve never seen an episode before,… Read more →

I Can’t Take Naps

As a child, I remember napping. I would head to my room halfway through the day, pass out, and be ready for what the rest of the day held. But, as I got older, I seem to have lost the ability. I just can’t seem to fall asleep during the daylight hours. I think it’s my brain’s fault. I try… Read more →

Books About Crazy People

I have a thing about reading books from the perspective of people who aren’t necessarily all there in their mind. Not that there’s anything wrong with them. I just think they have a more interesting perspective than the average person. I really enjoy being pulled from my normal way of thinking into these strange ways. One of my favorites is… Read more →

Missing the Beach

I used to live in California, and I was only about an hour and a half drive from the beach. Some of my greatest memories include hopping in the car, heading to the coast, and spending the day taking in the waves. I went to the beach so often, and it was comforting to know that it was always within… Read more →

Family Dinner: Pork Chops

On tonight’s menu, I have a plan to make pork chops, macaroni and cheese, a little sauteed corn, and some cheese rolls. I like to make dinner most nights because I feel like it’s one of the best ways to take care of my family. Growing up, my mom always made a home cooked meal that we would enjoy together.… Read more →


I usually like to post a “daily progress” at the end of each day. It helps me think out what I’ve done and kind of mentally prepare for the things that need to happen the next day. Yesterday was kind of an off day, but I was pretty happy. I had to take my husband to work, and I came… Read more →
