Father's day isn't a favorite of mine. I know my father, he still lives with my mother, but we haven't had the best relationship since I was a little girl. He's a sexist, misogynist, anti-black racist piece of work. I get tired of calling him on his nonsense, so I avoid him. Anyway, I hope … Continue reading Day 174: Pop

I'm really not feeling it today. There has been just too much bad news today. I didn't sleep again last night and I'm sure it's taking a toll on my energy. Naps would be great, thanks.
I visited a mound today. A mound of Earth that was built by Native Americans around 1100 ad. It was hot and the march to the top was exhausting, but I made it. The view from there is impressive, but imagine how it looked when it was new. Before time and industry wore it down. … Continue reading Day 169: Dirt Dreams
My son left for a week of camp this morning. I was a little nervous but I'm sure he'll be fine. This is the farthest he's gone without me and that's a little jarring. He's okay. It's just church camp. He had a choice between boy scout camp and church camp and he went with … Continue reading Day 168: Travels
I am capable. I am deserving of love and respect. I am will to do what is needed to achieve my goals. I am able to accept the good things that happen to me. I am able to accept the kindness of others. I am becoming who I'm meant to be.
