Getting Funky

I don’t mean funky in a good way, I mean getting funky like the funk, the fog, the deep dark spiral is near. I can feel it coming on. I cling to the few days of normalcy I have just experienced before it comes back to plague me. I know it is coming because prettyContinue reading “Getting Funky”

The Month of Love

From what I hear, February is the month of love. I guess Valentine’s Day and all. Seven years ago, in February, I got engaged. We had a nine month old son and we were in the process of rebuilding our house. I had come over to the house with our son to check out theContinue reading “The Month of Love”

Boring Responsibilities

Please feed your rabbit. “It’s sooooo boring! It is so boring to feed Emily.” I know it is boring but when we have pets we need to take care of them. It is important to make sure our pets always have clean water available and plenty of food. It is boring but it is somethingContinue reading “Boring Responsibilities”

On Being Tired

I try to take time on Sundays to rest. Having a chronic illness and post exertional malaise because of it can make even the simplest of existences exhausting. It is one of the symptoms that I despise the most and it often leaves me frustrated and angry. I feel unable to keep up with lifeContinue reading “On Being Tired”

Feel the Chair Beneath You

It was a beautiful day today. The sun was amazing and felt so welcome on my skin. The kids would have only needed sweatshirts to stay warm but because of the snow they were in full gear.

I want words to come easier; my vocabulary is rusty after not beingContinue reading “I'm So Glad I was Born”

I am Dreaming

I’m hurt, this body’s wearing thin A beautiful mistake I’m living in I’m tired, sometimes I fantasize They push me out to sea Coins on my eyes Family, friends say goodbye Say goodbye I’m hurt, not hurt enough to die See I was born to raise, born to fight I’m tired, not tired enough toContinue reading “I am Dreaming”

It's Been a While

I haven’t written a blog in a couple of years now but I once wrote two of them. One was all about my adventures in motherhood and the other was about our homeschooling life. That was before, though. For a while I was really lost and I guess I still am, a little. This pathContinue reading “It's Been a While”

A Quick Hello

Hey there. I’m Tristan. I am from the Berkshires in Western MA. I’ve heard it is a pretty remarkable place, but I haven’t traveled enough to fully agree. I know people have traveled far and wide and still, they have come back here, to the Berkshires. I will have to take their word for it.Continue reading “A Quick Hello”
