american flag, distress signal, Dear America open letter, never Trump, broken hearted, politics
June 23, 2016

Not too long ago, I shared my concerns about Donald Trump should he become either the GOP nominee or, God forbid, the President of the United States. I can’t believe I had to type a sentence like that in my lifetime, or the one I’m about to. I can’t believe our political system has become…

when life gets away, tangled wheels, overgrown weeds, compassion
June 16, 2016

I’m stuck in that weird non-momentum phase where everything is still really busy but it feels like there’s no progress being made, especially on the things I really want to do. Like blogging, and writing, and crafty things. I keep finding really awesome sewing patterns on Pinterest, too, but I haven’t touched my sewing machine…

And by that I mean “It’s been a MONTH? HOW?” and “It’s been A MONTH. How did all that happen in a month?” Oh man, where to begin… Well, I guess first off, I should announce that any of you who have linked to me should update your links to Yes, that’s right, I…

Dear America, Most of you don’t know me. I’ve been told I’m not really supposed to talk about politics on my blog, but sometimes you have to talk about what’s on your heart, no matter what. And it boggles my mind that you don’t know me and can still make my heart shatter. I’m sure…

I didn’t mean to drop off the blogging face of the earth after my last post, but life happened (and writing!), but more on that later. Today, we’ve kicked off our next series at the Ferret Blog. You should come check it out! Click the image below to visit the post.

whole 30 challenge
April 15, 2016

(This post contains affiliate links.) The last week and a half have been hard. I keep hoping to see improvement with certain things – especially my energy level – and I’m about to start listening to my instincts (I am an INTJ, after all, and my instincts rarely lead me wrong), and come to the conclusion…

oklahoma, tornado, oklahoma weather, march 30 2016
April 9, 2016

We’ve had two very close calls with tornadoes in the last year. Not to mention sporadic earthquakes, wildfires, and the possibility of extreme cold. We are not prepared in the slightest, and we’re going to change that with an emergency kit.

whole 30 challenge
April 4, 2016

This first part of the Whole 30 Challenge has been both the shortest and longest 1 1/2 weeks of married life, I think. (And we’ve been married for eight years, so that’s saying something!) Emotions have been high – hunger does that to you. And we’re not starving by any means (though Mr. Loper might…

January 4, 2016

Wow, somehow it is 2016. There’s been… stuff. I’m working on a rant post about the drama of layoffs and unemployment bureaucracy that will probably go up this weekend. Mr. Loper’s feeling a bit depressed and frustrated about not working, and I’m trying not to be panicked about the lack of money that is imminent,…
