An ode to Jill Scott

I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus with the writing. I’ll admit, I wasnt being super positive either. I want to do a separate post on court adventures so I wont get into that right now but it was brutal and I’m recovering. No better way to recover from some abysmal gloom like that […]

On being happy

We were reading the al anon daily reflection book Hope For Today, and today the reflection spoke of a woman who was happily married, with a good job and not used to being happy (sound familiar?). She spoke of lying awake at night, worrying her car would break down, etc etc, and how the only […]

Gopher State

Nailed it

When your 3 year old asks for a pig cake (yes a pig cake…no fuckkng idea where she got that from but very clearly and definitely a pig cake) you make a pig cake. So I found this on pinterest. Looks legit. I can probably do this. Lover is ALL about it, hes gonna help […]
