Know a ‘Poor Me’ person? Don’t let them drain you.

I try not to do posts like this because I'd rather spread happiness instead of dragging my dark cloud over people. But sometimes I just have to get it out in fear it will consume me. Do you know someone who is Master of their own Misery? I do. And damn, is it relentless. Let [...]


Blue Sky Day

Blue Sky Day

Somehow it's been nearly a month since I've returned to work. It's incredible to me how fast a month goes when you're having, err, fun? More like when you're raising kids and working full time. I was driving to work today and thinking about how I feel leaps and bounds better mentally than I did [...]

My decaffeinated life

The fact that I've had to cut out regular coffee from my exhausted life has made me sad. And now, I've had to bid adieu to all caffeinated beverages. So long, Diet Coke. On the one hand, I've wanted to cut out soda for a long time. I'm aware of the warnings of artificial sweeteners, [...]

The Little Blue Pill

Ugghhhhhh. I don't really know how to segue from my last post about the Cat and Jack subscription box I reviewed, so that was my lame attempt. This post will go back to how I'm dealing with my anxiety and life in general. First, I have met with my therapist a couple times now and [...]

My anxiety journey

To say the last few months have been exhausting is only the tip of the iceberg. It's been draining beyond belief and I've finally reached my breaking point. I've dealt with anxiety the majority of my life, but never recognized it as an issue until my early twenties. Even then, it wasn't anything that I [...]

I’m still here

So it's been a minute, huh? A new baby will do that to ya. On June 12, our family was surprised and blessed with a baby boy! And a big one...9 pounds, 4 ounces! We knew that baby was gonna be bigger than brother, who was 8 pounds, but I was not expecting a baby [...]

Unintentional Ketosis

So this weekend was a productive one. We are damn near finishing the nursery, with just a few minor things to complete. I also started pulling out the old baby supplies and newborn clothes and blankets to start stocking the necessary supplies. First of all, holy crap, my son had a ton of baby clothes. [...]

What the hell is this?

What the hell is this?

Today is Friday, April 6 and it is snowing outside. Damn near blizzard. We're expecting 1-3 inches, with another round of snow on Sunday. This stuff has to stop. My baby belly refuses to get squeezed into my winter coat any longer. I literally had to suck in the best I could to get it [...]

Everything Hurts

I feel like I've written this post before. I'm falling apart. My body, that is. My mind, however, has never felt stronger. Well, I do have the foggy pregnancy brain, but emotionally I feel pretty confident. Nonetheless, I woke up this morning feeling like I got hit by a bus. Let me lay out the [...]
