I’m supposed to be at an ashram. 

I’m supposed to be at an ashram in the Sierra Nevada foothills, meditating and doing yoga with a bunch of blissed-out white people, but I’m not. But we’ll get to that in a moment. The place was fucking beautiful. Green grass, ponds, flowers, stone walkways. Giant weeping willows, hammocks, sprawling oaks. The cabins were...

Fuck the lie that we can have it all

Fuck the lie that we can have it all

My husband was called to work out of town and I’m fucking pissed. Sometimes I resent the shit out of this motherhood good, the way it goes down for me. Yeah, I said it. Sometimes I don’t want to be the one on whom the KIDS ALWAYS FALL. Sometimes I don’t want to be...

There’s a deer hide in my garage, and I’m done caring
