Well, I had a couple of extra hours today so I ordered something for the balcony. We ended up settling on a bamboo fence that we will staple to the overhead wooden slabs to create a makeshift roo...


This morning my husband and I took our daughter for a thirty-minute power walk in my in-laws neighborhood before we dropped her off for the day. We’ve agreed to do this every morning, Wednesday t...

Hair in Staying Connected

I don’t have too much to say about this, but I meant to post an entry a while back about the evolution of my short hair. This was the look I was going for when I initially decided to chop it all...


All right, well. There are a couple of things worth mentioning this morning. For one, I never mentioned it here, but I did see a neurologist and get an EEG. The EEG didn’t find anything abnormal...

Tough Love in Staying Connected

Had another talk with hubby tonight. Earlier in the day I asked him if he thought he might be depressed. He asked why I was asking. I said that his hours at work had been cut, he’d been gaining ...

Challenges in Staying Connected

Let’s see. What’s on my mind this morning? Well… For one, I’m growing increasingly concerned that something is wrong with my brain. Each wave of “seizures” seems to increase both in frequency an...


This morning I woke up, scrolled Facebook, and then skimmed my Friday briefing of The New York Times. GEORGE FLOYD. His name. His photo. His story was everywhere. I got up, got my kid up, got ...


Last night, in my dreams, I was a part of a really exciting and romantic love connection. My subconscious really took its time with the story. I met the man, felt intensely attracted to him, spen...

Burt's Bees in Products

Being in quarantine has significantly changed my makeup routine because I know when I’m meeting with my clients on video chats, they can’t see me with nearly as much clarity as they could in pers...


The other day my husband told me that when he came to bed he just touched my back to let me know he was there, and I, in response, whined in a way that communicated, “don’t touch me.” He seemed h...

Friends in Staying Connected

A few weeks ago, when we were checking in for group supervision, I made a comment in front of about five of my colleagues and my boss. I said that I missed seeing my clients face to face quite a ...

La De Da in Staying Connected

I don’t know what it is about me, if it’s unique, or if it’s something most people experience, but my mind has always been a busy one. When I was younger, it was very distressing. Most of the tho...

Things in Staying Connected

I’ve only got five minutes, so I need to type quickly! I just wanted to share some brief news. First, the bad news: I found out that I have a $600 deductible for physical therapy, so that’s off ...

Survey in Staying Connected

Let me just preface this by saying it’s late, I just had a generous glass of wine, and I wanted to write something, but I had nothing to say. SO I stole this survey from one of my good friends (h...

Movement in Staying Connected

Yesterday, after I wrote my entry, I asked my husband, “Do we have any plans this weekend?” He said, “Not that I know of. Why?” I said, “I want to schedule some time for us to talk about things.”...


I’ve been feeling disconnected from my husband again lately. I really don’t like when this happens because the bigger the void is between us, the more opportunity there is for thoughts of men fro...


I am so happy about my schedule right now. I want to write it down both so that I can look at it with satisfaction, and so that, if sometime in the future I become unhappy, I’ll have something to...

Snapshot in Staying Connected

I had a pretty good Mother’s Day. When I woke up my husband told me, half asleep and with an expression of concern, that he had seen something weird the night before while I was sleeping. For the...


So, next Tuesday I’m going to talk to a neurologist about my dream-seizures (my own term). It feels odd going now, since nothing has happened in what feels like a long time. But when it does happ...


Interaction with old supervisor: Me: How should I intervene with my client? Supervisor: You need to be different. Me: Okay. I will work on being different. (repeat same interaction for several ...


My life is pretty settled these days. There is not much going on. Today I’m getting some hair dye and a new eyebrow pencil. I will probably color my hair next Tuesday during my “me time.” That’s...


My husband, daughter, and I went on a walk first thing in the morning, which felt amazing. But something happened in the afternoon where my mood and energy just crashed and now I have a headache ...

Margarita in Staying Connected

I am currently in the middle of my gluttonous period. Each Monday my husband and I split the day down the middle. The first half of the day is mine to do with whatever I’d like, and the second h...

Ooph in Staying Connected

Today was a rough day for me. I had to call adult protective services on one of my favorite clients, and it broke my heart. I called the client beforehand and tried to explain that it was somethi...

Leona in Staying Connected

She will be 16 months old on May 3rd. Things she can communicate: She can sign “more” and “all done.” She uses these signs both when eating and when doing an activity. She can catch kisses. She...
