From August 2015: So life is ephemeral, adulthood is hard, and my child looks to be ready to go through another growth spurt. He’s chest-high to me right now–when I rest my elbow on his head, I have to tilt my arm up, which was not the case back when summer started–so I can onlyContinue reading “quarantine blogging: oh bloody hell”
Tag Archives: really? seriously? really?
Today I’m going to rant a little. I’m getting a little tired of the judgmental memes on Facebook, y’all. Sure, I do indeed have the same number of hours in my day as Einstein and Beyonce, but both of them had/have the luxury of not having day jobs. Some of us spend 8 hours a dayContinue reading
