2022: The Year of Simplicity

This year, I’m living by the word simplicity. I realized there were so many things in my life that truly didn’t bring value and I was making everything harder and more time-consuming than it needed to be! Yes, it does sound similar to my 2019 world ‘Declutter’ – and there are a few similarities – […]

Feel Your F&*@ing Feels – WHY!?!?!?

I received an email earlier this week from a very nice person. Basically, it said “I’ve really appreciated your advice and words of comfort in the past but I’m bowing out now. I do not appreciate the f-word being used in daily life – especially in my grief journey – and cannot condone the practice.”My […]

Grief Doesn’t Take a Holiday – Don’t Let it Derail YOUR Holidays

We’re less than eight weeks from the beginning of 2022…Can you believe it?But first, we have to enjoy, entertain….and just plain get through…all the festivities (and parties, and get-togethers, and happy hours, and ‘quick visits’, and shopping, and cooking….and eating, you can’t forget all the eating…)Over the last 12+ holiday seasons I’ve ‘celebrated’ without my […]

Terrible, Thanks for Asking.

I’m a podcast lover…ok, I’m a podcast binge-er. {…I devoured Serial in 2 sittings, Ted Radio Hour is on constant loop in my car…} But, I’d put off listening to Terrible, Thanks for Asking.Why?

Lead Vests and Soap Bubbles

I promise, stick with me…Yesterday was the 9th anniversary of my Madelyn’s death. I don’t care how well I’m ‘handling it’ leading up to May 20th – this day sends me into a tailspin and I go deep into my mind rethinking everything that was done {and not done} during my pregnancy, in the hospital, […]

Declutter: 2019 Word of the Year

It came to me like a ton of bricks…literally. I was digging through the basement for that ‘one thing’ I needed to finish up an end of the year project and it all came crashing down {almost} right on my head.I come from a long line of hoarders. Like certifiable, poster child for, should be […]

Kidding…

I mean, Jim Carrey, Muppet-style¬†puppets, and on ‘for adult eyes only’ Showtime. What’s not to love? …then it got real. Like really, really, really, really REAL.I had NO idea what I was getting into. I had seen the internet commercials about what I thought was Avenue Q for adults. I love a bit of smart […]
