If you’re new to my blog, welcome! Here is an explanation of the tater tot post.
Never let me get a chia pet again. I’ve tried and failed to make them grow before. But I figured that as a plant whisperer, I should be able to handle a simple chia pet. Right?
Take my money, Richard Simmons.
This is why I cannot go shopping the week of Christmas.
I hadn’t been out of the house in over a week due to a cold*, so I was giddy to be out among the people. Then I was among the crowds and I realized how much I disliked being in crowds. So, I needed to reward myself by purchasing a Richard Simmons chia pet.
I will alert you with any “hair” growth.
Nothing good ever comes from Branson
At the beginning of December, my husband traveled to Branson, Missouri, for a work function. A few days later, he caught a cold*. I caught the cold* a week later. My oldest daughter caught the cold* a week after me. Thankfully, my youngest daughter was spared.
This time around.
In 2010, we took the girls to Branson. We drove the 10 hours there, and Ella, who was only a toddler at the time, had explosive diarrhea while we were out and about the next day.
Without a diaper change with us.
Nothing good ever comes from Branson.
*We’ve since wondered if it was Covid and not a cold we all caught. I took a Covid test before Christmas and it came out negative. But I’m still skeptical, because nothing good ever comes from Branson.
I got high with my dogs
My friend dropped off a cupcake from Wake and Bakery while I was sick with my cold*.
I shared it with Anna. I had no idea she’d given some to the dogs.
I was feeling considerably better an hour later.
So were the dogs.
Do you have a word of the year?
I’ve never done a word of the year before. But this year, my word came to me.
There are many different definitions of nourish, but here are some of the words that I found to define nourish:
And I wondered, how can I do those things to benefit myself in the coming year? How can you do those things to help yourself in the coming year?
