SAHM: I thought I wanted to go back to work, but I was WRONG!

I recently was officially hired – genuinely went through an application, interview, and offer process! – and now my status has changed from Stay At Home Mom to Working Mom! But it also means change and adjustment for my family, and I’ve been afraid of that for a long time. In fact, it’s almost solely what… Continue reading SAHM: I thought I wanted to go back to work, but I was WRONG!

Is Anyone Out There? Is Anyone In Here?

Life takes no prisoners. Dreams don’t make themselves come true. It’s easy to become mired in the day-to-day, isn’t it? Two and a half years with Chroi now, and so many big life changes that came on her heels (fetlocks?). All this time passed, and what do I have to show for it? In March… Continue reading Is Anyone Out There? Is Anyone In Here?

Chroi is pulling a cart! & I’m pulling all-nighters…

After more than a year of planning, And more than a handful of “roadblocks,” Chroi is officially “in cart!”   I wish I had documented and updated as much as I’d originally “intended” (something about paving stones for a specific road…?), because it’s been quite a process and a project! From introducing her to the… Continue reading Chroi is pulling a cart! & I’m pulling all-nighters…

There are no coincidences

Last year when Chroi was in training with Cori, Cori sent me a lead on a cart for sale. The price was good and it looked perfect for Chroi. Unfortunately, because of everything that had happened, we couldn’t have afforded a cart at even a fraction of the price. I called the seller anyway, but didn’t get a response.… Continue reading There are no coincidences

Public Meltdowns- a post-dated story of a stranger’s kindness

I drafted this post a little over a year ago! I still remember the day as clear as a photograph in my mind. I wish I’d gotten it published in a more timely manner. It may have taken a year to tell this story, but I feel like it’s still worth telling.  And so, without… Continue reading Public Meltdowns- a post-dated story of a stranger’s kindness
