Jack of all trades, know-it-all, call me what you will I prefer to have a little knowledge on all things relatable...or not relatable. I like to call them my Eclectic Adventures! FYI: my music playlists look very much the same.
My Boy, I Am So Sorry
My son, I am sorry your Christmas is no longer what you remember it being. I am sorry that as you get older, beliefs fade and things that you once believed in feel disappointing. The important thing is to remember that you can still have fun with it. Just because things you once believed in faded doesn't mean it can't be exciting to get a few gifts, they just become a little more practical as you get older.
She's Just a Gamer Girl
Y'all it's sometimes a weird thing to admit you are a girl in a gamer world. I'm sure it's been said a thousand times over but sometimes you get a lot of feedback about it.
"Jump Jump Jump"
"I can't believe you have never cliff jumped before, it's a thrill man!" Liam was always the adventurous between him and Adam. They had planned a coastal trip with a few of their other friends, a guys weekend away, the testosterone rampant as their jeep cruised along the steep coastal cliffs.
One Saturday Morning
What is home? The nose knows Of weekend morning coffee wafting up the stairs Mom making French toast all for me My brother, "eggs with yellow in the middle"
Green means go... As in a traffic light, the light turns green and you go. I remember this lesson when learning to drive. Basic!
Mom Is Gonna Be Alright
While it is difficult most days to admit to my kids I am going through mental health struggles, the best thing I have done is admit to them that I am struggling. They were one of the first ones I told, I told them out of respect and so that they could understand that adults aren't impervious. Telling them I up and quit my job was one of the hardest things I've had to do, but I did it for my mental health.
It only happened every few years, a gathering, a party, always formal. This was a special occasion! Julianne had always loved hosting her friends, after all they were always her friends, never her husbands. She had become quite the professional in the kitchen, using her always creative mind to whip up delicious delicacies.
Why I Up and Quit My Job
I literally just put in my 2 week notice, I am heading into the unknown and for the first time in my life I don't feel as scared as I should. If there is one thing I've have learned about COVID year is to just roll with it! I always tell people, it takes being in tune with one self to know in our gut how you truly feel. I was happy where I was, I enjoyed the people and the business, but for some reason it was the inner self that didn't feel right. I kept showing up to work and felt completely out of place. My soul no longer aligned with what that job was, and no promotion or relocation was going to change that.
The sun wasn't always a problem for me, I used to love it! That nice big ball of warmth and brightness in the sky. The way my skin would be warm to the touch, being able to be outside or in the pool for hours on end. The after effects of having mom lather me in aloe or vinegar to take that damned sting away. Sun-kissed, natural bleach streaked hair in my face...
