Sometimes You Just Gotta Write a Post

In Mindful Life by Jenn0 Comments

It’s been awhile since I posted here, though I’ve started at least 3 posts in my head since my last update, and now I can’t remember any of them, of course. Funny how organized and systematic I can be for other people but not for myself, huh? I feel like …

My social media feed is currently peppered with posts about how terrible 2016 was, from the hit parade of celebrity deaths (NOT CARRIE FISHER…DO NOT WAAAAAANT) to the ongoing carnage in Syria to terror attacks seemingly every other week to the election that demonstrated a collective loss of sanity and …

Blue Christmas

In Mindful Life, Mom Life by Jenn0 Comments

Have you ever been in survival mode, like real, just make it through the next hour survival mode? (I believe this is the terribly exclusive domain of parents of small or special needs children, caregivers, and the bereaved.)  I guess after two months of serious sleep deprivation (and three to five months …
