I haven’t done this in forever but that needs to change

Yesterday I did something I haven’t done in a long time. I went for a hike without my kids. I’m not sure why I don’t do this more often. I do like time to myself, and I love being out in nature. Seems like I would be doing this every chance I get. Who knows. …

It’s a self-care kinda day and here’s what I have planned

It’s been a relatively quiet day so far. It’s beautiful outside and the kids have been working on the house while I’ve been working on……..work. I still have 3 seasons to remaster and re-upload. It sucks and it’s time consuming but otherwise pretty easy. Anyway, the boys have been a great job with minimal fighting. …

A little bit of selfcare goes a long way

Both the boys went to school today and that’s a good thing. The weather is cooler and Emmett’s school is back open once again. I’m currently waiting for Elliott to be dismissed and then I get to drive across town to retrieve Emmett. I’m in a weird mood today and I’m not sure why. I …

I try to never take breaks for granted

It was a pretty quiet evening. The kids were at their grandparents, and I’m writing this after sleeping in till 10:30 AM. That felt really good, and I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity. Lizze and I went for a short walk last night before picking up dinner and settling into watching Wandering Earth on Netflix. …

I’m focusing on #selfcare and seeing my doctor this morning

As part of my focus on selfcare, I’m seeing my doctor this morning. For a long time, I avoided the doctor because I wasn’t making myself a priority. I reached a point that by the time I realized I needed to go back, I was too afraid of what I might learn. When I did …
