On silence.

August 13, 2018
I took my own break to recharge and reaffirm my own values and priorities. In the meantime, much has happened. So much has happened that it makes me weary to type it all out. Toxic people still exist but I am heartened by those who refuse to allow that toxicity to overwhelm them and disconnect.&h...

  • On freeing.
    June 19, 2018
    A few friends on social media recently remarked to me that they disconnected from a really toxic person; the same person that I was dismissed by for not shoving enough tubes up my premature baby boys' noses. All of them have now remarked how ultimately at peace they are with this. Sometimes, this...

  • On Tony.
    June 10, 2018
    There are people who are trash and sometimes that will never change. For someone who is at times forced to believe that change is possible, I must also accept that some things will not change. How does one live with a truth that will not change? How does one arrive at the decision that something&...

  • On money management.
    June 7, 2018
    Insofar as others, I am claiming this space as my own and am not responding further to garbage bullshit from evil, unstable people who are cruel, judgmental, and frankly sick. There. There's my disclaimer. Moving on. I am married, and I am married to a man who cannot manage money. This has been a...

  • On delving.
    June 1, 2018
    I may not be pursing a PhD (right now. Or never.  Or I don't know.) but I am a researcher. I learned in graduate school how to evaluate research, consider sources, understand where research may be flawed. There is no perfect research, but one of the things I truly enjoyed to do was understand why...

  • On my babies dying.
    May 31, 2018
    I left a private note on a diary here of someone I used to read; someone I used to know, but someone who is a literal stranger.  Some say "something must have happened" but I'm not so sure.  Does it really matter?  Does some break with reality mean that the person isn't responsible for what…

  • On life and death and judgment.
    May 30, 2018
    The internet is littered with tragic terrible stories of parents who have had to make the most difficult choices for their children. There are stories of children so badly injured in car crashes or in horrific tragedies that parents must make the horrifying choice of discontinuing life support. T...

  • On why I won’t apologize.
    May 28, 2018
    There are some issues that I am very outspoken about and for that, I do not apologize. The use of premature infants to further a pro-life agenda is one. This is also a lesson on why sometimes, crossing the streams between social media "real life" and this space is probably not a good idea. I'd&he...

  • On one of those things.
    May 27, 2018
    There are things that are just true, whether you like them or not, they just are. You can ignore that they are true, you can say they are not true when they are, in fact, true. But their truth remains. If the sky is blue; if it is a sunny clear day and the sky…

  • On week three.
    May 3, 2018
    The burnout level is high. Three hours each way (six hours daily) my husband commutes to his job.  Nobody thought this was sustainable but I don't think I thought it would be this bad. The pressure of solely parenting five days per week, coupled with preparing a house for (I hope) a tenant is jus...
