crying over spilt milk…

…and not just any milk. Special steamed milk from 4bucks, with two pumps of mocha and two shots of espresso. Dang. And I was really moving one foot in front of the other on this rainy Monday. I went from putting clothes away in my bedroom, bathing Mr. C, cleaning the bathroom while he bathed [...]

breaking it down.

Likely you’ve caught on by now that keeping up is an issue for me. (And I am in no way referring to the Jones’ family.)

decison made: massage.

I went for the massage. In attempt to not repeat going into another Monday feeling life-less and drained, I chose some self care. As wise women have told me, self care is not selfish. Self care is of the utmost importance. And if all else fails there’s the ol’ standby: if mama ain’t happy, ain’t [...]

the monday doldrums.

Ugh. Hells bells. I am so dang tired, drained, and just want to nap today. Mr. C’s not up for that. Can’t see one kitchen counter… And then there is this picture. This is what stinks. This is what I would see women doing in my old world of Finn-land upbringing: there’s no TV on [...]
