Holiday Blues…

Holidays were always a bit awkward for me. The step-mom not wanting me around made it hard to spend time at my Grandparents if she was there with my Dad & brothers. I got used to being ignored I suppose. Got used to not having my brothers in my life like I would have liked.… Continue reading Holiday Blues…

Coffee, Coffee, Coffee…

It’s the holidays and I haven’t posted in a while. I kept saying “I’m going to post this” and then I don’t remember until I’m already in bed! But I wanted to share with you something cute.

When I was a kid I was alone a lot.… Continue reading A Helping Hand

What Is Self-Care?

  Self-care is something I don’t think I knew about until at least six years ago, maybe even longer. Maybe it’s also something I’ve been doing all my life.
