I was sitting out on the porch of our bungalow eating my watermelon when I see what seemed to be a butterfly fluttering around. On closer inspection I realized it was a little bat with a bunch of huge fire ants biting him!! He was crying and trembling so I yelled for BF the animal whisperer to come help. He told me to go get some tools so I grabbed tweezers and chopsticks lol. We carefully pulled the ants off- we had to kill most of them as they would not let go of the bat. The bat stayed still while we worked on him and then once he was free he flew around in circles, flying SUPER close to our heads. I think he was thanking us :)
I entered Disney’s Frozen Norway Getaway for a chance to win a Frozen inspired trip for 4 to Norway!
Got off my butt & didn’t take a nap, went to the gym… Walked for 30 mins & biked for about 2 miles. Gotta start somewhere, might as well be today.
Things parents forget to tell their children: →
- Bodies are hairy. No matter the gender, your face will have hair and that is more than okay.
- Your butthole is going to have some hair too. And maybe your nipples. And your tummy. And where ever else.
- Stretch marks. Those are a thing. Everyone gets ‘em. If you don’t, you probably don’t have skin.
- Vaginas smell. Every vagina has a scent. Don’t worry about it! (Unless something seems wrong, then go get it checked out! No need to feel embarrassed or ashamed.)
- Vaginas come in all different shapes, sizes, colors, flavors. All are beautiful.
- Penises come in all different shapes, sizes, colors, flavors. All are beautiful.
- You don’t need to shave anything if you don’t want to. It’s tooootally not mandatory.
- Sometimes people get butt acne.
- You can have a vagina and want short hair and think dresses are just the worst.
- You can have a penis and want long hair and think dresses are just the best.
- You can wear whatever you want and style your hair however you want.
- You can even think whatever the hell you want.
- People might tell you that you are a girl because you have a vagina. People might tell you that you are a boy because you have a penis. People will tell you what your gender is. But in reality, you don’t have to be that gender. You don’t have to be either of those genders.
- You are what you are and it’s just the worst thing if you try and hide that.
Don’t just read this, think about it.
This. So much this. Took me a long time to understand my fiance saw the beauty in my that I could no longer see. I was beat down by so many bad times that it took me a long time to find myself in his praise.

"Disneyworld is one word. Period. Not two. If you’re going there at least spell it right. Especially if you’re a picky witch I wanna punch."
16 years ago I said goodbye to my mom as the paramedics loaded her into the ambulance. I never saw her alive again.
The lady at the front desk in the emergency room had called upstairs & said, “We don’t need a bed for [MOM], she just died.” This is how the news was broken to me.
And so for the past 15 years I’ve mourned her on this day, but in the most recent years I’ve celebrated the day with friends. Tonight I had dinner with a small gathering of friends, it was nice. I have move away from the pain & I remember all the good things about my mom that I can.
The only really sad thing is I don’t remember her voice anymore. I don’t have a tape or video recording of her, so her voice is gone. When she visits me in my dreams her voice is different every time… I miss that sound, the one that got me through my hellish teenage years.
Sadly, she never saw me move to Denver & make amazing friends there. She was never there for me to talk about the new boy I met, never there for me to tell her that I’d fallen in love with him, that I was moving to Kansas to live with him… That we’d gotten engaged.
My mom was my best friend, even when others weren’t. She loved me, listened to me, and supported me for the first 20.5 years of my life. I just wish she could see me now, & that I could get one more hug.
