Hello, my friends! So much has happened since we spoke last! I won't go into all of it, but it was a lot of big life things that no matter how much you think you have a handle on your emotional triggers, it some of it still jumps up and bites you in the butt. … Continue reading Day 11
well, I’m paying for this.
Yesterday I noticed the auto-debit in my account for this blog. Oops, oh yes Sarah, you're still paying for this platform. (I've changed that setting now. Fool me once.) So...that said. I'm paying for this so I might as well use it. I can't wrap my head around long posts right now. It's not that … Continue reading well, I’m paying for this.
…and then I turned 40.
It's evening here in Missouri. I'm sitting here in my house, trying to knit pieces to an afghan, listening to the cats fight, and thinking about my last year. For grins I went and re-read the post I wrote for my 39th birthday. It makes me laugh and laugh. Oh Sarah, you had no idea … Continue reading …and then I turned 40.
something to hold onto
Sometimes I wonder why I still blog. I mean, it is kind of a dying thing. But then I start writing and I remember that sometimes an online journal can be healing. So I think that is where I am today. I don't know what I need to say, but I need to say it. … Continue reading something to hold onto
Today I'm going to tell you all a little story about a key. Honestly, I'd meant to write about it a long time ago, but all the drama involving my eye overshadowed this tale. I probably wouldn't be writing about it now, however, it's been so interesting watching people get up the courage to ask … Continue reading the key
the first cut is the deepest
Hidey Ho, Neighbor! Can anyone name the show? Wowza, that first week of this year was a doozy. Ok, so maybe it wasn't officially the "first" week, but it was the first for me. What even is WORK? This week in a nutshell: I had an eye doctor appointment, I got strep throat, and I … Continue reading the first cut is the deepest
20/20: perfect vision
Recently I heard the line, "know the difference between spectacular and significant." It was said in the context of ourselves. How often do we look at others, in all their spectacular glory, and wish we were different? I don't know about you, but for me, it's a lot. I fail to recognize my own significance … Continue reading 20/20: perfect vision
2019 in review
A very dear friend of mine, Willie, shared this with me after one of my most raw posts this past year. I've kept this as a reminder that I vowed to be real and not fake, no matter the cost. It's special to me. I was almost dreading writing this post. I've done it every … Continue reading 2019 in review
random friday stuff: vol 8
This comic brings me such joy. Check him out at Nathan Strange Planet. My life lately has definitely turned into one big ball of randomness. And you know what? I'm kinda ok with it. Well, most of it. Welcome to some random! I really need to make some time to read. I miss it. I … Continue reading random friday stuff: vol 8
ewwww, david. no.
(from Life.Church) Do any of you have any phrases that you say to yourself just out of habit? I do. It's usually under my breath, and almost always after I've done something dumb or I'm overwhelmed. It is always, "Oh my goodness, Sarah. What in the world." (Not a question, just a statement.) I have … Continue reading ewwww, david. no.
