i am safe. Minneapolis is a scary place right now. I have a lot of feelings and opinions and will likely share them eventually. What I need for you all to know, is please don't come here with "violence isn't the answer." Or other outcries agains... Read more

Still plugging along here. Not doing great, but trying to make every day better. My son thrives on schedules and consistency. Unfortunately we can't seem to provide that for him. My partners schedule keeps changing. I'm hopeful the most re... Read more

We got the grill out for dinner tonight. Yum! I stopped to get groceries from our local market. It's small, pretty well stocked, and not crowded. So it is perfect for me at 2 in the afternoon. I also got an order picked up at target.... Read more

It felt so good to get something done other than cooking or cleaning. I made a trip to our local hardware store. They made the commitment not to do any layoffs. So, they adapted and are offering curbside pick up or they are doing a sold A job of... Read more

Today I had a neighbor/friend offer to pick up things from the store. It was so sweet and such a needed gesture. And, she was able to get us magnesium. I've been having some muscle cramps which is usually an indication I need to add it back. I h... Read more

I worked, it was fine. Tonight was so hard with the 5 year old. He finally fell asleep at 10:10. Bedtime is 8, he's "usually" asleep around 8:30. (He is always variable, but this is so far off, even for him.) *deep breath*... Read more

Hope you had a good easter if you celebrate. Mine was pretty low key. Kids opened "surprise" baskets from the easter bunny and one from us, and gifts my parents sent. We had about 5 inches of heavy, wet, spring time snow today. It was a far cry ... Read more

Today I got out for a short walk with my daughter while she was practicing riding her bike without training wheels. She's getting good. It was nice to get out in nice, 60 degree weather. We have some cold weather moving in again, but since... Read more

Ok. I feel like I need to clarify. In my post yesterday I was sharing about a stressor that came up and how I wasn't dealing with it how I wanted. It's important to note I was NOT comparing my situation to anyone else's. I wasnt trying to say we... Read more

Well. Today things took a bit of a turn. I don't want to say for the worse, but I guess that's what I'm feeling now. I'm lucky that we've gone 3 weeks longer than a lot of others, but hubby is going to be cut to 50% hours. The hospital is ... Read more
