Hump Day

Halfway through the week! Or for my SO, today was his Friday. It was a busy day. My MIL canned some cubed roast. I try to stay out of her way, but I like to learn a bit about the canning process as well. It’s amazing. She has the butcher cube the shoulder roast (beef)Continue reading “Hump Day”

Just Another Manic Monday, Wait, It’s Tuesday

Nearly lost track of the days. Gosh, does time work funny when you’re in the Manic phase. I was greeted with a pleasant surprise today! Someone sent me something from my Amazon Wish List! ❤️ Thank you, person! These Tarot Card stickers are so cute. It makes me want to draw some of my ownContinue reading “Just Another Manic Monday, Wait, It’s Tuesday”

Whatever Happened to Lisa Frank?

(The above image was taken from this article.) I haven’t had a really great mindset the past few days. I’m definitely drifting into a Manic Episode. I don’t have a lot of focus, my thoughts are racing and my attention span drifts to a million different things. Normally this is when I’m really productive andContinue reading “Whatever Happened to Lisa Frank?”

Mental Overload

Yesterday I meant to do another post, but the day just did not go the way I planned it. I had my first session with my new therapist in the morning. The health care provider that I currently use has interns who start in July and their time at the facility ends in June. SoContinue reading “Mental Overload”

Oh No, Oh No, Oh No No No

I have no idea what I did wrong with the automatic pre-planned posts. I thought I was impressive having a few posts written ahead. Only to realize that some of them posted on the same day and when I tried to “fix” it, I thing I got the order wrong. I think I’ve finally gottenContinue reading “Oh No, Oh No, Oh No No No”

Tea for Two

Not the 1950 Musical Film starring Doris Day, which I have now decided is a necessary movie that will be gracing my television sometime today. I don’t know why, but there’s something magical about watching some of the older films. I recently got on the kick after watching “Charade” (1963) with Audrey Hepburn and CaryContinue reading “Tea for Two”

Practice, Practice, Practice

My SO works today so it was the perfect time to practice playing my ukulele a bit. I managed to get a ukulele during COVID. Like many, MANY people, I picked up a few hobbies during the pandemic. I also got a guitar off Facebook Market as well, but it felt too large and hardContinue reading “Practice, Practice, Practice”

Opposite Action in Action

Saturday’s are busy days for my family. My SO, Bonus Daughter, and myself go to karate. Our dojo is about an hour away, depending on traffic. We travel the furthest of any of the other students, I think. It’s good for us. I love the martial art. It’s not just exercise. There’s history, tradition, andContinue reading “Opposite Action in Action”

Willingness versus Willfulness

In case you missed the Podcast yesterday, here’s the video! Willingness is an important part of your mental health journey. If you aren’t willing to put the effort in to try for yourself then no one is going to be able to help you to do so. It’s a sad fact that loved ones needContinue reading “Willingness versus Willfulness”

Brainstorming, the Owl Rain

June 2013 was my last hospitalized suicide attempt. I’m having a hard time writing about this subject. I’ve openly talked about my mental health issues for years now, but sometimes, returning to the past can be difficult for my mental health. Not everyone is always understanding of mental health issues. Even those who love you.Continue reading “Brainstorming, the Owl Rain”
