Sunday Book Club: Caraval

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and fabulous New Year; although I am well aware that many of you did not.  It can be such a hard time for so many.  I personally do not like New Year’s.  The idea of the blank calendar year before me causes me such stress and anxiety.  While… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: Caraval

Sunday Book Club: The Girl With All the Gifts

I promise at some point I will get back to the skin care–I am just about ready to start my winter skincare protocol.  Usually this entails lasering sun spots, a chemical peel or two, and some filler or botox, but this year I’m so excited to try something new.  I’m going to try the vampire… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: The Girl With All the Gifts

Sunday Book Club: My Absolute Darling

Before book club, I want to spend a little time talking about mental illness.  I drive ALOT. Almost constantly in the evenings.  I was sick of listening to the radio, and then I discovered podcasts.  I did the popular ones, including and particularly Serial, and then I found The Hilarious World of Depression.  This podcast has completely… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: My Absolute Darling

Sunday Book Club: No One Is Coming To Save Us

Before I get into this week’s book, I’d like to review how I did last week with my goals. Eating Habits: Uh, well, I did okay.  I didn’t drink carbonated beverages (yay!), or sugar (for the most part, I did cheat yesterday, but that was the only time), but I couldn’t stay away from white… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: No One Is Coming To Save Us

Sunday Book Club: American Gods

Well, obviously, I missed last week.  Lots of things have been happening, most of which have been out of my control.  Life has become hectic and messy, which causes me to be sort of at loose ends.  I’ve discovered, however, that my mental sharpness and health is heavily dependent on my environment. If my house… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: American Gods

Sunday Book Club: Shock of the Fall

Where does time go?  It seems there are never enough hours in the day.  I’ve been struggling a little lately, mostly with the worry that I am not enough.  I’m finding myself floundering about, really not being good enough at any of my roles right now.  It causes my anxiety to grow, and to push… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: Shock of the Fall

Alone in a Room Full of People

I spent the weekend at a dance camp for my young daughter. She was in classes most of the day, so I spent my time with many, many of the moms. I only know very few of them, so I was already in a situation that would cause my social anxiety to flair up. (I… Continue reading Alone in a Room Full of People
