Monday’s Malcontent Musings

Today I was forced into godforsaken small talk when a woman said, “I’m tired of seeing all this womens rights stuff everywhere, causing problems.” I looked at her and turned the other way as to not vomit my true thoughts in her face. I made it home as fast as I could, slammed the doorContinue reading “Monday’s Malcontent Musings”

I deleted Facebook. Finally.

I deleted Facebook and it’s…. relieving.  If I could put it in Marie Kondo terms, “That shit sparked some damn joy!!” And I know, I’m late to the game but guys, it’s really nice having that soapbox news feed behind me. What is it with Facebook?? I’ve been growing tired of the whole FB mentalityContinue reading “I deleted Facebook. Finally.”

Serendipity (When California called)

The birds started it. 134, 135, 136 ..lying on the trampoline, dad’s  weed eater brings my back from the clouds. I call to him, “DAAAAAADDY!! WHERE THOSE BARDS GOIN’??” southern accent strong. “WHAAAT?” He calls. “THE BUUUURDS. WHERE THEY GOIN’??”.. “They’re migrating west to find warmer weather,” he responds. “WHAT’S WEST IF THEY FLEW ASContinue reading “Serendipity (When California called)”

Adoption 💓

SheContinue reading “Adoption 💓”

For myself, expressing my thoughts through art is honestly the most productive and meaningful method of stress relief and self-expression. I hone in on creative-writing because it allows me to voice myContinue reading “Blocked out.”

A Mother’s Intuition

It’s quiet. A little too quiet. Bath time is lurking around the corner. Im bent over the tub testing the water temperature. … “AND SHE STARTS THE CLIMB!” I turn with a jerk!! “What the fu.. my thoughts abruptly interrupted. …-“SHE’S GOT NO FEAR, ALMOST THREE SHELVES UP NOW.”- A voice. Loud. Blasts through myContinue reading “A Mother’s Intuition”

Because, cookies.

Today has been a groggy one for me. Not to ruin anyone’s positive outlook! Maybe because I woke up with a horrible headache and my son, who is 9 months old is sick. I’ve been going on very little sleep, as are my grumpy children, which has left me with very little gas in myContinue reading “Because, cookies.”

Departure at Dawn.

She Ran. She ran because she hurt. The love for herself acquired through his flirt. For years, a lifetime, he took the lead. Every compliment he muttered, he’d cut a deeper wound to bleed. Never did her role as wife give reason for this toxic vice. Belittled a dreamers unwavering hope a ring on herContinue reading “Departure at Dawn.”
