The Here And Now

 “The best way out is always through.” -Robert Frost   Another week in the books and as we say goodbye to borage, I’m still battling with whatever this illness is that has a hold on me. I’ve been doing a little research and though I’m not a doctor, I would venture to say I am…

A Day Behind

I am running a day late this week, because I have an abscessed tooth which has led to a very horrible infection in my face. My cheek is so swollen that my eye is trying to shut and the corner of my mouth is turned downward. I look like someone beat me up just without…

What A Week!

This has been one long week! I spent most of it doing a complete “fall cleaning”of my home while still finding time to do not only my daughter’s homework but my own as well, plus going to dr appointments and trying to tidy up my garden. Needless to say I’m grateful to have an extra…

On A Night Like This

With my family finishing up their dinner and myself lounging in the recliner swiping away at my keyboard, I sit here wondering how do routines really begin? Do we just wake up one day and decide this is how we are going to do things or does the same thing happen so often it becomes…

Motivation Or The Lack Thereof

So this is where I tell you about my problems. This is my own personal version of laying on a couch and pouring my heart out about all my private woes. There really isn’t an all involved here. There is just one problem and it’s a big one. Motivation. Energy. Whatever you call it, I don’t have…

Random Spurts Of Emotion

If you knew me, you would know that I’m not an emotional person. I typically can keep my poker face long after you’ve gotten mad and walked away. The only emotion that I show readily is anger and I take a medicine for that, ha! Anywho, I was driving down the road in my car…

And So It Was Decided

I began this blog because I wanted to document my journey into herbalism, but I quickly realized that is only one facet of the diamond( ok, cubic zirconia) that is myself. Today, I didn’t feel like doing a damn thing. I somehow dredged up the energy to cook dinner and get my kids ready for…

The Real Real

If you asked me ten years ago what I thought my life would be like at 31, I would have said a husband, kids, a great job, and my own home.

First blog post

My first blog post. I decided not to change the name because everyone has to start somewhere and this is my beginning.
