Yankee Boy

My SO and I don’t really have a ‘song’. They’re not much of a dancer which I can say was a tough pill for this Spanish Southern girl. None the less, music has played a big part of our lives. So to commemorate them making it around the sun one more time here’s one ofContinue reading “Yankee Boy”

The Tao of Me

I took a sociology class in high school. Looking back on it, it was more like an anthropology class because we studied different regions and their customs/religions. It was in this class my love of all things Eastern was solidified. I have a strange and passionate love of Eastern cultures…all of them. I love theirContinue reading “The Tao of Me”

Flipped

I struggle putting things together from written directions. Ikea is my mortal enemy. As are all Ikea wannabes. Directions get flipped in my head. I get confused. I’ve never been diagnosed with dyslexia but from all of the hack online tests and learned articles I’ve done and read, I probably have a solid case ofContinue reading “Flipped”

It’s All Downhill From Here

We usually go skiing in the winter at some point. Not sure if that will happen this year. The last time we went I wiped out down a hill and had what they call a yard sale. As I huffed and puffed, trudging back up that hill collecting my stuff I thought ‘maybe it’s timeContinue reading “It’s All Downhill From Here”

Polygons

In my mad sweep of clutter, I finally threw out our Alphabet/Blackboard easel. If you have kids you know exactly which one I’m talking about. We all had/have it. Ours outgrew it awhile ago but I kept it along with some other toys for the others coming up the supply chain. Always good to haveContinue reading “Polygons”

Take Me Home

I’m not one to internalize celebrity deaths. It’s always sad especially if there is longevity in my investment in the celebrity but not so much it rattles me too hard. But I was sad to hear about Toots yesterday. He’s special to me and as a part time island girl he’ll always have a uniqueContinue reading “Take Me Home”

Cheating the System

Tropes. I see the question asked in the community. Sometimes it’s asked with a veneer of not even veiled derision like a tiger waiting to pounce on the idiot who answers with a ‘sure why not’. Other times it’s asked genuinely like ‘should we shouldn’t we?’. Other times it’s asked with a ‘f’ it –Continue reading “Cheating the System”

A Quiet Mind

The house is quiet on Monday/Wednesday when the kids go to school. The other days they do virtual at home. It reminds me of the days when they went to school (before homeschooling) and my SO was traveling nonstop and I was working from home. There’s a weird quiet to everything that I’m not usedContinue reading “A Quiet Mind”
