Relocating is a Bear

We are moving next week. Packing and cleaning and sorting, oh my! So many things to remember. Did we call the let me fix that for you company? Did we schedule the window shiners and grout washers?

All I Wanna Do

I don’t want to be a responsible adult today. I want to sit on the sofa with my husband and dog watching old crime dramas eating junk food and drinking sweet tea. Where am I? At work being a responsible human. Y’all feel my pain? Harley Quinn the staffy

Day 63

Today is the day I officially start a new writing project. It’s easy when starting any project to feel overwhelmed. Keeping things organized and in perspective helps ward off anxiety.
