As I sit and write this it's day 5 of my isolation... and I'm gonna be honest, I'm really not having a barrel of laughs. I'm not struggling, but I am NOT flourishing. Let's take you back a bit... On Tuesday, I sent one of my children home to have a COVID test because she … Continue reading Isolation… it’s not all fun and games

I have days when … Continue reading What’s keeping you going?

Hello! I've decided that I'm going to make Monday a "me" post day. By that I don't mean I'm going to be posting all about me... but it's not necessarily going to be a bookish day: it might be about school, about my life, about my MH: it'll be something personal, not necessarily bookish.
