Return to Girl, Take a Hike

I really want to go hike on a beach somewhere. It’s been an insane week already. It’s also starting to get cold. I don’t like it. Well, I do but it’s a weird toxic love hate relationship with cold weather. The snow makes it so pretty. Luckily, we only had a little light dusting ofContinue reading “Return to Girl, Take a Hike”

Wannabe on the Trail: Musings on Timeshares

*** I haven’t got any cool photos for this post so I made memes… So… on that last trip I took, that one to Branson, we went because of a timeshare offer. Yeah, yeah, I know… We were walking through a popular outdoor store and Wade never learned to avoid sales desk people and interacted.Continue reading “Wannabe on the Trail: Musings on Timeshares”

Write—A—Ween

Hey folks! Fall is starting to wither a little bit here—we’re already getting calls for snow but right now it’s misty and dreary. Perfect Halloween weather—or perfect Halloween writing weather. So, I’m starting my own writing prompt for the two weeks leading up to Halloween. #writeaween

Focus? What’s that? (mini-post)

I got nothing. It’s been a trip that’s for sure. I’d like to say I was just so busy with family, work, and grad school again but it wasn’t that. I just lost focus. I lost motivation. I lost the concept of time. Actually, what day is it? I jest, but there were a fewContinue reading “Focus? What’s that? (mini-post)”

Back and Ready for it!

It’s been a while! Those of you that follow me on Instagram and Facebook probably know that I’ve been struggling with postpartum depression and anxiety. In great news, I’m finally coming out of the fog and starting to do the things I enjoyed. Here’s to new content, updates, and maybe some new videos and photosContinue reading “Back and Ready for it!”

It’s been a while…

Hi all, I fell off the map. Sorry about that. Things got a little hectic again. Time got away from me and my blogging plans went off the rails. I had a major round with seasonal affective disorder again. Adding to it was anxiety and stress caused by postpartum issues, plus COVID-19 wasn’t helping myContinue reading “It’s been a while…”

Hayduke Blues

*I wrote this two weeks ago and forgot about it… sleep deprivation strikes again… Hi all! It’s been a busy month and a half again! The baby has me in a foggy addled state. We’ve been getting outside on the nicer days but between my recovery from the c-section and Princesses recovery I haven’t feltContinue reading “Hayduke Blues”

Adventures in Motherhood

Hi all… It’s been a minute. I need coffee, a shower, and a nap… the order doesn’t matter. Once again the blog got neglected but this time I have a good reason… a tiny almost ten pound reason. Hunter takes up a lot of my day- then there are the naps. Plus, I wanted toContinue reading “Adventures in Motherhood”

Bored…I’m Bored!!!!

Short post this week, sorry about that. Yeah…after that nine-day work week my weekend consisted of me doing laundry (only productive thing I did) and eating Oreos on the couch… Oh, and walking the dog. I’m turning into a boring person. It’s just not the same as going somewhere for a hike. However, I didContinue reading “Bored…I’m Bored!!!!”

Effigy Mounds, Happy Anniversary, Winter Begins…

Well folks, you’re getting a twofer! I meant to post this back in early December but… yeah… things happen. *looks skittishly at the date of last post and cringes… I’ve been very busy- I finally have my new boss in place but it’s a whirlwind of activity. We started planning for this year and likeContinue reading “Effigy Mounds, Happy Anniversary, Winter Begins…”

Rocky Mountains and Gallbladder Pains

Winter has hit Nebraska; a major winter storm blew through Saturday night. Today I spent most of the day washing laundry, catching up on emails, and finally sitting down to work on my blog. After a week of fun in the sun and a week of Thanksgiving joy, I’m ready to get back to myContinue reading “Rocky Mountains and Gallbladder Pains”
