The Podcast



Rest, naps, etc

I have no idea what is going on with me physically, but this past week I have been insanely tired. Not weary or draggy, but more just wanting to lie down and sleep. My typical response to those feelings is to add more caffeine…

We are not homeowners!!!! We are not homeowners!!!! We may never be homeowners again! And I am thrilled about it. Yep, we sold our house on Tuesday (ie, we closed) after a mere 367 days on Zillow (or thereabouts). We sold it for significantly…

December & Climbing Out

Thank you all so much for your kind words, suggestions, commiseration, and support these past few weeks. I feel so, so, so much better. The shift was fairly sudden; I spent Black Friday indulging in an incredibly lazy afternoon (my parents were here entertaining…

Travel Weekend

Current feelings, music rec, and NC trip!

FEELING: overwhelmed (at least a little bit) though also happy because I had a great weekend away with Annabel (pix below, or for a bit more, check out the highlight on my Instagram). Honestly, it was so relaxing and fun! It made me want…

November and the start of Q5 (plus some Halloween pix!)

New month. New Quarter! (And one my favorite quarters, at that.) I have decided that I am tabling my NaBoProMo (National Book Proposal Month) until January. While I love that there is a widespread movement of others writing in November, I suspect this month…
