Overloaded Circuits, this blog, has been in fits and starts, halts and hiatuses for over a year. I keep coming back to it when I need it the most, nodding affirmatively that it resonates with me, and then getting writer’s block when it comes to adding to its offerings. If it helps me, even after … More Unqualified… or uniquely qualified?
BOOM! A head cannon went off today while talking to my husband about my anal retentiveness / control freak tendencies. How bad could it possibly be? If something is a millimeter off where it “should” be, I *have* to fix it. If a drawer or door is slightly ajar, it’s nearly guaranteed that I’ll end … More “Sorry, it’s all my fault.” (AKA. How to become anal retentive and a control freak)

You know those five minute breaks parents have to lock themselves into the bathroom just to be able to breathe without interruption?

I can’t even today. And my guess is, y’all know exactly what that feels like. You probably recognize it too often, just like I do. That feeling of intense kinetic energy… trapped inside the too small box of overwhelm, exhaustion, self-doubt, apathy (that’s not really apathy), and (probably at least a wee bit o’) deer-in-the-headlights-can’t-move … More For when you just can’t even…
I know it’s a month away from the “30 days of thankful”, but no matter. I’m going to do an experiment for this week: Every single time something good, positive, and/or a blessing happens — NO MATTER HOW TRIVIAL — I’m going to write it down. Whether I write it on my phone, messaging … More Positivity Experiment
