Each Time We Get a Little Bit Better
If you know me in real life you have definitely talk about this road trip I have been planning for months. I love driving and look forward to getting to do road trips so much. Every summer I think, maybe we can do one this year and I plan out all the stops and timeContinue reading “Planning a long road trip with kids”
Tuesday was 2 months on Wellbutrin and it is still working. When I get into hyperfocus mode I know it now. That is huge for me. Knowing that I am in a state of hyperfocus allows me to lean into it if the time and space is available, or pull myself out if I needContinue reading “Two Months have flown by”
My partner has always been the income earner around here, and I have worked jobs for mental health and fun. His company closed last week and it feels really weird right now to be in a period of time where he doesn’t have to work all the time. We started a company a couple yearsContinue reading “It’s a new world around here”
So I know, I said I would post at 2 weeks… That came and went and I didn’t even think about posting. Not much changed between week 1 and week 2. Today is 1 month in to being on Bupropion (Wellbutrin). I still think it is working, but I haven’t noticed much of a changeContinue reading “1 month”
We made the decision to put the kids back into in-person school. As a parent I am very excited. My kids were flying through textbooks like it was their job. They were just soaking up so much academic knowledge, but each day it seemed like they were losing more and more social skills. They haveContinue reading “Homeschooing No More”
I wrote before that I have been trying to find systems and processes to make my ADHD manageable without medication.

We just talked about what more steps weContinue reading “A Week Into Medication”
When my partner and I met I had a gerbil, he had no pets. We were young and just out of college so it wasn’t surprising he didn’t have a pet. Most people I knew didn’t have pets yet. I had grown up with quite a few pets running around the six acres of landContinue reading “My Partner Doesn’t Like Pets”
I don’t know what to write, so I’m just going to write a short little story. Walking along the lake, in the misty fog Sarai saw out of the corner of her eye, something move. On edge they turned to see what was there. It was nothing. Nothing was there. Knowing they did not imagineContinue reading “Story Time”
In high school my principal would end the announcements every day with “Today is a great day… or not. The choice is yours” I understand that this is meant to be motivational, and encourage the listener to have a cheery optimism and choose to have a better day. This saying has gotten me through manyContinue reading “Is it really my choice?”
Our family had talked about switching to home-school before the pandemic happened. I was home-schooled growing up, and there are definitely some benefits I gained from it. Our older child was having difficulty making friends and conforming to the teacher’s will during that year and my partner and I were traveling a decent amount forContinue reading “Homeschooling this week”
