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”

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”

Tropical Storm Fred and Me

I was looking at the weather website and noticed this. I can’t help but sometimes wonder if they realize how much power a name gives something? Obviously, my 80’s baby brain goes to Fred Flintstone. Yabba Dabba Doo~! Fred sliding in on that dinosaur tail. I used to love that show as a kid. EvenContinue reading “Tropical Storm Fred and Me”

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”

Lazy Sunday

I had my SO wake me up early this morning so I could FINALLY satisfy my craving for pancakes. I made buttermilk ones. Really simple recipe. 2 cups self-rising flour, 2 1/4 cups buttermilk, splash of vanilla extract, 4 Tablespoons melted butter, dash of salt, 2 eggs, and 3 Tablespoons of sugar. Don’t overmix becauseContinue reading “Lazy Sunday”

Broken Down

I woke up this morning feeling horrible. I remembered one flaw to Intermittent Fasting. Low blood sugars. I had to break my fast and, guys, it broke me. I ate a peach and cried my eyes out. I haven’t been able to eat what I want due to conflicts in the kitchen. So I’ve beenContinue reading “Broken Down”
