Quarantine Restlessness

My thoughts have been drifting mindlessly this week (which is why I haven’t written in a few days.) Most days I feel good and strong. The next, I feel fear, anxiety, sadness, and helplessness. I try to steer clear of the media and radio but no matter where I look the impenetrable, overwhelming sadness is…

Tales of An Exhausted Mama

As I write this, I am pretty sure I am (somewhat) present with a rather LARGE cup of coffee today. With just 1 hour of sleep, I tend to rethink myself quite often throughout the day. As life would have it, all 3 of my children suffer from asthma (just as I did as a…
