A Load of Bull

Well, Stefnee, Kansas 2.0 has proven to have its own set of challenges and adventures. As I'm getting settled and unpacking, I'm learning things about The Moustache and His Father, as well as learning to handle rural country life. Things like.... internet availability, cell phone reception and driving 2+ miles to 'town' to pick up…

Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively. – Dali Lama

Breaking Rules Part 1   Today is my last day of work at my current job. And I have a lot of mixed feelings about it. I was tossed into this job three and a half years ago thinking I was pretty badass and could do anything. Holy schnikes, were those ideas challenged. My ego…

Wombmates to Roommates

There's been this ongoing discussion regarding roommates for college next year. Mom thinks the twins should be roommates because #1. Stranger Danger. #2. They share everything, even clothes. #3.

I…

If you've read my blog any time in the last year, you know that I'm trying to reduce my plastic consumption. Reduce. Not eliminate... because... life. But I'm doing what I can, where I can. Bamboo toothbrushes, toothpaste powder and deodorant that both come in little glass jars (with plastic lids, but still) taking my…

Dangerous Times?

There are so many movements lately... #metoo #whyididntreport etc... and politics aside, I for one am thinking it's about damn time. September was Sexual Assault Awareness Month and now we jump right into October which is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. I've been a victim of both. And both of them pretty recently, as in the…

Pebbles on the Beach

“Sometimes when you pick up your child, you can feel the map of your own bones beneath your hands. Or smell the scent of your skin in the nape of his neck. This is the most extraordinary thing about motherhood- finding a piece of yourself separate and apart that all the same, you could not…
