Surf’s up!

Yesterday, because I’m apparently all about the cliches lately, I drove myself, my mother, my 16 year old brother, and Alyssa and Ryan to the shore. Our destination, Delaware Seashore State Park, took a little over three hours to get to, thanks to crazy Labor Day weekend traffic. The tide was high and rough, the sand seemed especially messy, but the kids had a great time, and I had a great time watching them. But 6+ hours of driving plus being on the go from 6am until nearly midnight after a crappy migraine on Saturday night really did a number on me – it’s currently just a little past 8pm and I’m quite happy to be going to bed soon. ;)



I hope you all had a great (long) weekend!

School started yesterday. I promise, they were much more excited than they let on in these photos. The morning was a little rocky with Ryan, but I anticipated that and so I was up early and extra patient and accommodating. We were all ready to head out the door promptly at 8:15am. Alyssa couldn’t wait […]


Backups are your friend

August 24th, 2014 ♥ 8:10pm

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in life, it’s this: always have a spare. Whether it’s a spare battery, USB cable, jumper cables (ask Dan about that one…), or drum beaters for your drums, the motto always have a spare will never do you wrong. At worst you’ll be carrying a little something extra with […]


The thing about depression…

August 24th, 2014 ♥ 6:14pm

Depression makes you anxious. Depression makes you unfocused – as if depression isn’t enough, you also get dished a heaping side of ADHD. You get anxious about how the depression-induced-ADHD is affecting your productivity. And then you get more depressed. I’ve been on 50mg of Zoloft once per day for nearly three months, and I […]
