The Introverted Business Owner
The introverted business woman.I am an introvert. More than that I have social anxiety and sensory processing disorder, all of which go hand in hand. My social battery gets drained very quickly and the stimulation of crowds causes sensory over load.
Trending Being part of the social media generation I hear the word trending fairly often. Usually its certain styles, tik tok videos or the latest Hollywood drama, but recently on Reddit a thread popped up about parenting trends that people wished would end. As a mom of 4, an angel baby and another on the way, naturally, I read through it. Here is my opinion on these “parenting trends” that people apparently think need to stop.

Playing with the Dead
I was three. I remember it so vividly. We moved from the center of the state to the top. It was the last house at the end of a dead end street, a cute and quaint brick house that backed up to a large field with wheat hay as high as sycamores, at least to a three year old. There was a small vine of green grapes climbing a post that held the clothes line in the back yard and two fruit trees in the front, a plum tree and a pear tree whose branches were low enough for me to reach and climb, though I never made it very far. Our neighborhood was so rural only about five other families lived in the subdivision in the making. Our street T’d into another, a dead end to the left and the road back to town to the right.

Not in the literal since of the word but I am going through what you are right now.You are probably rolling your eyes, saying to yourself how can I know what you are going through. I’m a stranger to you. A name on a screen you probably have never seen and never will again. You may even be offended. I know. Because I was too.

Failed Bluff: Part Two
If you haven't read the first chapter follow the link to better follow the story My eyes were fixed to the television screen as the scenes played out. When the old man, who was supposed to be completely immobile from a stroke ran up the stairs on all fours, head upside down, mouth jaw breaking-ly wide, after the main characters grandmother. I could no longer fight my feminine fear reflex and buried my face in my hands with a slight yelp. I quickly turned away from the screen which placed me, cowering against Scorpio's side.
If you haven't read chapter one please follow the link so you better understand whats going on in the story "Catalina Marie" my eyes grew wide and I bit my lip nervously. She never called me anything other than Catty unless I was in trouble for something, which rarely ever occurred. I racked my brain trying to remember if I had forgotten any of my chores but as is customary when one forgets anything I couldn't remember if I had or not.
