Mental Health Monday

Sleep…the final frontier of your day. There are many, many times I have slipped under the covers and given thanks to God for inventing bedtime. A whole entire chunk of time to do nothing but sleep? What a gift!!! But what if you can’t turn your brain off when it’s time to drift away? It is so frustrating to be…

Just Jill again

This week I have been kidless. My two older kiddos are away at camp and my youngest has been at grandmas. They’ll all be home again this weekend and although I have missed them, I have to admit this week has been FABULOUS.  I feel like I’m getting a glimpse into the future when I’ll be an empty-nester (which will…

Just stuff

Howdy! This morning as I entered the kitchen my husband said “wow, you’re getting all kinds of new clothes” to which I replied “this old thing?” No, actually I said that this was not a new top, just one I haven’t worn much (it’s a summer top and it’s just now getting summer-y here in Oklahoma).

Where’s a hippie when you need one?

Last week I was…

Goals and stuffs

Happy Friday folks! Does it seem like this week draaaaaaged on forever and ever? What’s up with that? I’ve been working on my list of goals that I want to get out of therapy. I’m still working on that list of 15 things I like about myself – I know several of you gave me ideas and I appreciate that,…
