Time Is Hard

I'm doing a little re-run series because I want to post consistently but I don't have enough posts yet to keep 'em coming so we are gonna share some words I've written for other sites and give them a permanent home on this site. So, without further ado... With each passing year as we draw…

Milo Monday and Factory Resets

Have you ever taken away your kids electronics and then realized that the one you have actually punished is yourself? Yea. That happened. But also, something else cool happened. It was a great weekend. We hung out. Remember hanging out? Like families used to when I was a kid. It was relaxing and calm weekend…

Thursday Thoughts: Christmas Traditions

Well it's Thursday and believe it or not I have no thoughts. I have a to do list a mile long and a very discreet headache lurking in the background so I think I will keep this edition of Thursday Thoughts more traditional, you know, like we did back in the day on Instagram. And…

Milo Monday and Christmas Chill

You know what my favorite part of being off of social media during the holiday season is? Not worrying about all the things I should be doing with my kids. I know there are tons and tons and tons of Christmas events going on that range from free to college savings and historically, I have…

Thursday Thoughts: Sleep Matters

I have a confession that shouldn't be embarrassing but it is embarrassing. I mean I've spoken about suicidal ideation for Christ's sake but the fact that I, gulp, snore, is, to me, more intimate a reveal. But there it is.

Milo Monday and a Yummy Recipe

It's already the Monday after Thanksgiving. I don't know about you but this holiday weekend flew by and we are officially in the "after the 1st of the year season!" This time of year is my absolute favorite. I mean for all the obvious reasons like people are nicer and all the lights glowing after…

Thursday Thoughts: Thanksgiving Edition

I only have one thought I'm thinking today and other than all the delicious food I plan to consume, it's this. Well, hold on, I actually have a little more suspense that I think I'd like to build up. Yea. I do. I could go into a whole spiel (read shh-peel because who knows how…

Milo Monday: Thirst Trap

Ok the jig is up. These Milo Monday posts are essentially just for me because I like googling "Jack Pearson". But also I suppose I could take this opportunity to share a smidgen of what is on my mind so okay, let's do that. This Monday is hitting different because it's the Monday of a…

Milo Monday: Life Update

Well, this Monday is off to what I would call a shitty start which is weird because initially, at 5 am, I would have sung a different tune. That is to say it was off to a great start. I woke up, had some pipin' hot coffee with a pre-made Otis Spunkmeyer blueberry muffin on…
