Miniature Worlds: Work In Progress

If you recall the miniature Coffee Shoppe kit I bought. I started to work on it just a bit. Motivation has been difficult lately. My brain starts to like the idea of something. That’s the ADHD hyper fixation. And I’m open to working on the task, but then it sort of drifts away. I don’tContinue reading “Miniature Worlds: Work In Progress”

The Neverending Story

This was one of my favorite movies as a child. It was made the year I was born! So I suppose it’s like my theme movie. Imagination! Dreams! The Nothing… Oh man, the Nothing is a real struggle for me. And BOOKS! Wow, I love books. When my ex-husband and I separated, I ended upContinue reading “The Neverending Story”

Snacko Board Breakdown

I posted a few days ago about charcuterie boards. In French tradition, the charcuterie ( (pronounced “shahr-ku-tuh-ree” ) is the art of preparing and assembling cured meats and meat products. Essentially, this is meats’ response to a cheese board. And I’m not one to complain. Boards have become a huge trend. And I mean, whyContinue reading “Snacko Board Breakdown”

The Best Laid Plans

Everything is going according to plans… Have you ever let someone that’s neurodivergent plan something? It’s an amazing and frightening thing all melded together. My brain is often like an internet browser with fifty tabs open. Some of them have music playing and I have no idea which ones they are. Strangely, I feel someContinue reading “The Best Laid Plans”

Anniversaries and Memories

I couldn’t bring myself to post about it yesterday. Facebook reminded me midday and I just broke down sobbing. This time last year, my dad had all of us (his children) come down so that he could break the news to us. His doctors couldn’t do anything else for him. His heart valve was leaking.Continue reading “Anniversaries and Memories”

Frowns All Around

Poor Mood Octopus has been stuck in the angry position the last few days. It’s hard to pretend to be in a good mood for outward appearances. Like going to karate, eating out, and hitting the card shop with my bonus daughter. Keeping the “happy” mask on when you’re around people can be really difficult.Continue reading “Frowns All Around”

Library Books and Snacking for Dinner

Since I did not get to post the picture of my Bonus Daughter’s lunch yesterday, here you go. It’s a mystery to me how she likes to eat the same thing all the time. Then again, she will eat Taco Bell and always get the same thing: cheesey rice and bean burrito and cinnamon twistsContinue reading “Library Books and Snacking for Dinner”

Work Experience: The Elementary School

I started to rethink my previous jobs and the post became a long ramble that was not very interesting. It also let me fall too deeply into bad mental health brain by dwelling on my past mistakes. So I’ll have to tackle that post another time. Both for interests sake as well as sorting outContinue reading “Work Experience: The Elementary School”

Taming Tuesdays

Sometimes you need to do small things for yourself. Like buying yourself $5 flip flops from Walmart because your feet hurt and you feel sad deep within your soul. I also got myself a small slice of cake and ate it mindfully. I wanted to shove it in my face so badly but I tookContinue reading “Taming Tuesdays”

Missing a Monday

Almost lost track of the days. My SO starts their work week on Sundays, so our week is set a little different than most people’s. Sleep was strange and all I remember is strange dreams. Considering the long string of bad days I’ve been experiencing lately, I attempted a ton of Opposite Action. I forcedContinue reading “Missing a Monday”
