No time for headaches
Sunday, April 28, 2013      3 comments

I have a terrible headache today. The pain seems focused right behind my eyes, and I really just want to crawl back in bed and sleep it off. However... I don't have time for that, and I've already slept away too much of the day. I've been f... Read more

It started yesterday with a tickle in my throat. Maybe I was a little extra tired, maybe I had been sneezing a little more than usual... by the time I got home from work, it was in full on ear-aching, nose-dripping, throat-burning, body-aching m... Read more

That's not a metaphor - I mean I actually climbed up a mountain. Or rather, a giant boulder. (It's the closest thing to a mountain we have in Atlanta!) Saturday was a gorgeous day, but my husband and I spent the whole day working on the hou... Read more

I'm not sure what the weather has been like in the rest of the world, but down here in Atlanta, mother nature has been having some mood swings! This week, we've had freezing temperatures with flurries of snow, gusty days with dark gray skies, an... Read more

A letter to myself
Monday, February 13, 2012      1 comments

I know that sometimes I can be cruel; I tell you that you are ugly or that you'll never be good enough, that you don't deserve to be happy. Sometimes I neglect you, sometimes I even abuse you. I often make you cry, and I'm quick to point out eve... Read more

Last weekend I did something I haven't done in years - I went to an SCA event. My older daughter is out of town, so I took my niece, who'd never been to one before. It was incredibly hot, so before the fighting was over on Saturday, we wandered ... Read more

That's all I really need right now. My two year old daughter, Amara, has been sick all weekend. It's made her far more needy and cranky than usual, so I've spent a good part of my day with a whiny toddler attached at the hip. I really hoped to f... Read more
Sick Baby :(

Woke up earlier than I wanted to this morning to the pitiful wails of my 2 year old. She was burning up with a fever of 102.6, a spike from the low fever she's had for the past two days. Frustratingly, I had a make-up class and a mandatory gradu... Read more
