Today was significantly better than yesterday. Babs was feeling well enough to go to school, and I actually enjoyed getting out of the house. And I was able to shower! This might not seem like a big deal to most people, but when I'm depressed and anxious, everyday tasks are so daunting. Being mentally prepared … Continue reading A small win.

I haven't blogged in a week, and I hate myself for it. Life has been such a blur lately, but I'll try to give you the condensed version: Babs has an ear infection. She's such a trooper, I didn't even know her ear was infected because she wasn't acting like she was in pain at … Continue reading A blogger who doesn’t blog.
