Today while working on some coursework with The Irish Pagan School (which I highly recommend, by the by), I had my third recommendation to read Atomic Habits by James Clear. I ordered the damned book. The first recommendation came from one of my best and longest-termed friends, someone who knows me well and someone with … Continue reading Okay, okay, I get it! I’ll read the damned book!
Well I certainly made inroads to my rock star status last night, but it appears I have more touring to do. RockBand 4 - Rivals is great fun. I woke up this morning and starting my new planner/organizer dealio. I found it on Instagram and I really like it so far. It's not as complicated … Continue reading Organization is a sign of… staying home
I find so much joy in singing, so I'm dusting off Rock Band 4. I'll see you after I'm a GD rock star. Peace! #copingwithquarantine #fuckyeahrockstar
I knocked myself out last night. I had to. For the past week-ish, I've been waking every hour from vivid dreams - basically, I think I'm waking at the end of every dream cycle I have, and never making it into deep sleep. The dreams are about many things - COVID-19, my dad, Jasmine, things … Continue reading No Sleep
Monday will make the beginning of my second week of staying home. We have a team meeting on Wednesday to talk about what comes next. I have incredibly mixed feelings. I want to work and not have to deal with the drop in income... but more than that, I want to be laid off so … Continue reading On the Eve of Week 2
Things resolved with my nephew - he has returned to Arizona indefinitely. I told him he would need to stay until there is no risk of infection. Based on the latest information, not only is my mom at risk because of her COPD and heart disease, so is Jeff with his blood thinners and heart … Continue reading War & Peace
My dad used to growl deep in his throat when he was very, very angry. Angry not in a quick-burning flash and then gone way, but in a years-burning-coal-under-the-soil kinda way. And that's where I am today. My mother's health is not being taken seriously by people who should be taking it seriously. By people … Continue reading Endless Anger Metaphors Ensue
Damn. I don't have a lot to say. I have a mom who is at risk right now. I work in health care. I am likely facing furlough because my department is non-essential. I am ok with that because of point A - I would really like to not infect my mom. People continue to … Continue reading Pandemic
The MarcoPolo app makes me think that I may like to make a few video posts - that's new territory for me. Anyone want to see this mug? Also... the shit is hitting the fan in the most horrendous way. I have been planning a trip to the woods around Atlanta, GA for a few … Continue reading Video Posts? And Speaking of Shit & Fans.
I imagine I am not alone when I say I am living in a constant state of overwhelm right now. There's the constant background drone of the decline of our country, the rabid messaging around the Democratic primaries, the coronavirus, political insanity on the global level, oppression of indigenous rights (also on a global scale), … Continue reading Overwhelm
