Traumatized

at

Today we took the girls out to the store for some art supplies to give them something to do for the afternoon since I’m still low on energy post-illness and Hayley has a bit of a cold.After I got Breanna down to sleep for a bit, I set the table up and got out a piece of styrofoam to use for the paint, and Hayley went to town. She must have painted at least 25 different things, including one painting she did of Dora that impressed me…

5-books-that-have-helped-with-my-stress-anxiety

I’ve done a lot of things over the years to work on managing my anxiety and also the stress levels that create even MORE anxiety. I don’t know about you, but when it comes to anxiety and panic attacks, less is truly more!I started off by learning to do yoga in my living room back in 2010. In 2012 I added running – something I used to do on the cross country team back in high school. I also worked on meditation in fits and spurts. Right now…

Sometimes I really like planning things out and knowing what I’m doing over the next several days. For instance, I like knowing that on Wednesday and Thursday morning I’ll be at the school to volunteer for Breakfast Club, Wednesday evening I’ll be back at the school for a PPO meeting, and that Friday I’ll be going to check out a replica of a refugee camp that’s being set up in a big park by Doctors Without Borders. Throwing in some sort of event into the…

Halloween of 2009 ended up being far better than I originally anticipated. For one thing, I felt like absolute crap on the 30th and most of the day on the 31st. I was really worried about whether I could actually manage to walk around with the kids trick-or-treating. The thing is, Halloween is and always has been one of my favorite days of the year. Christmas and birthdays are great what with all the presents and family stuff but for me it’s far more fun to get…

Since I mentioned earlier that I will possibly watch a scary movie later tonight to keep me awake during the wee hours of the night, I thought it would be a good time for…Seven movies that scared the absolute CRAP out of me:The Ring. I swear to God, no other movie has ever terrified me quite as much as that one. I don’t even know why, it just did. The girl, the well, all of it. I was a ball of nerves the whole time – I still…

Dead or Alive’s “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)” is possibly my absolute song from the 80s ever. I’m not the dance-on-the-speakers kind of girl, really but I used to hang out in a goth bar that had an 80s night and every time they played that song, without fail you would find me on top of the nearest speaker dancing. I don’t know what it is, I just love the song.I had never seen the video. Unfortunately YouTube has allowed me…

Catching up

at

I titled this “catching up” but I’m not all that sure there’s a whole lot of anything to catch up on, really. Not because I’m sitting here and staring into space, but nothing out of the ordinary has happened. Let’s see what I can think of though, because going days without blogging is not normal for me and I’d like to get back into the swing of things.I’m still reading Wicked which is annoying because it’s so good that I should have…

It can stop now.

Last week, Hayley was home from school for two days. The first day, she had a sore throat and quite the sneezing, sniffling, dripping cold going on. She stayed home and was miserable, moaning about how horrible she felt. I was glad I kept her home because she either would have made her entire class sick, been traumatized like she was when she was sick on her second day of school and we’d be back to persuading her through her tears to go back, or she’d be in…

babymouth.jpg I have always wanted to go visit Russia. I have an incredible love of Moscow and St. Petersburg and all the old European beauty. I also love the language, guttural though it may be, and I’m always up for a bowl of borscht and some Chicken Kiev.

But something I read thanks to AdventureDad makes me want to go to Russia for the sole purpose of going to a hospital to throttle the holy living hell out of some of the staff. If you like kids, this situation will likely outrage you and possibly make you cry like I did; you’ve been warned.
