COVID Test Came Back Negative, But He Is Still Staying Home.

This kid’s COVID test came back negative, thank goodness. He has his usual back to school cold/flu. I feel like it bears noting that he got sick regardless of following the safety guidelines that were mandated to schools for Fall. He wears his mask, he washes his hands, and he is in a classroom as … Continue reading COVID Test Came Back Negative, But He Is Still Staying Home.

Things I Seem To Have Missed The Memo On

I am less than three years away from my 40th birthday. This puts me smack dab in the middle of middle age. I am too young to be old, but much too old to be young. I am finding myself thinking lately about all the things that I should know or know how to do … Continue reading Things I Seem To Have Missed The Memo On

Get over it

Repost @womenforblacklives • Get over yourself Get over ourselves I’d also like to add First Nations lives to this list. White comfort and white tears will never fix this white mess. We need to fix this, and fixing things means that things have to get painful and uncomfortable. #rachelcargle #blm #blacklivesmatter #endwhitesupremacy #bipoc #metis #firstnations … Continue reading Get over it

Addiction is hard. Relapse is harder

It doesn’t matter what you are addicted to, a relapse is always shameful and painful. It might be drugs or alcohol, or, as in my case, shopping for things I do not need and cannot afford. It’s easy to say “oh just this one thing is fine”, but one thing leads to two things, leads … Continue reading Addiction is hard. Relapse is harder

Gemini Cycle

I have cycled out. The dark, wet slog has begun to brighten and dry, leaving me free, coated in fine dust. The dust is the residue that resists the cycling out. There. In my hair, on my hands, clinging to my eyelashes, on everything that I have touched or ever will touch. I have cycled … Continue reading Gemini Cycle

Rest In Peace, Justice Ginsburg. And above all, just rest.

Justice Ginsburg was a powerhouse, and continued working into her late 80s to try to keep the bench as balanced as she could. No one should go through the pain of late stage metastatic pancreatic cancer, while also knowing that the balance of power in her nation depended on her ability to continue to do … Continue reading Rest In Peace, Justice Ginsburg. And above all, just rest.

Fake It Til You Make It
