Check! ✔️

I've been kicking ass & taking names! I'm finally starting to feel like a real, responsible adult - Ha! Here's what I've accomplished so far: ✔️  Blood work: I got it done today & got all my numbers in. I'm a little high in cholesterol (no shocker there. I love steak lol) & a little …

Shabbat Shalom

I'm sitting here thinking about what to talk about when I realized, "Wow. I had a really good day today." I started my day by going to Temple. Today kicks off Pesach/Passover. Service was lovely, as usual, but it was really cool to be there for a holiday & see how they celebrate it. We …

Snapshot!

I had a lot of little things happen today so I wanted to take a moment & share what's going on. Really, I just need to get it out so that my mind can process it. 🙂 SLEEP I slept like shit last night. I was exhausted so I fell asleep quickly, which is great. …

GYST

I consider myself a very patient person. I extend some time & grace way more than I should. When others have given up, I'm usually the only one standing around, believing the best. Usually. Because lately, I'm over it. Get your shit together. For fuck's sake. I don't like bird-dogging anyone. I don't like listening …

“I would, but…”

I fucking hate that phrase. Do you know how many times I've heard it? Roughly sixty bajillion. It's always said to me like it's supposed to make everything better. Like they're the first person to bail on me. Like everything was out of their control & I'm the only one who has to suffer. But …
