Stressful Situations, Stressful People

IMG_0608

I have come to the realization that certain people and situations stress me out.  Stress sucks, plain and simple. Part of having an anxiety disorder means I worry a lot and stress out all the time. I am terrible at handling my stress. If I’m not in a stressful situation, then I’m totally fine. At home, I am relaxed and with my boys and am exactly who I want to be.   Continue reading

The Benefits of Owning a Cat

IMG_0585

I haven’t talked about him for awhile, so those of you who are new may not realize that I have a cat named Chester that I absolutely adore.  He’s incredibly sweet, to me mostly, very clever, and VERY mischievous.  I love all of that about him. He looks just like an ordinary brown tabby, but he has the eternal face of a kitten.  He can do no wrong and if he does, I forgive him as soon as his shows me those giant eyes and tiny mouth of his. I was going through my pics and realized just how many hilarious shots I have of Chester.  They are certainly worth sharing. Continue reading

Confession of the Day: I Like Stuffed Animals

IMG_0524-0

I may have slightly mentioned this in the past, but not recently I don’t think.  I have a confession to make: I’m 25 years old and I like stuffed animals.  Let me clarify, though. I don’t like ALL stuffed animals. I hate the cheap, ugly ones from carnivals or amusement parks.  I kind of collect Japanese plushies (AKA stuffed animals). Continue reading

A Lovely Local Find

  This past Sumday was Mother’s Day I the U.S. and I had the chance to spend Saturday with my mom. The weather was decent and we went out for Lunch together as well. I don’t live that far from my hometown, but I never seem to get down there very often. One thing my mom and I like to do when we get together is go shopping. Whether she comes here or I go there, we always seem to end up going shopping. Continue reading
