Today's my birthday - yay! I get to eat as much cake as I can! And also reflect on what's happened in a year ... I'm in such a different place mentally; last year I was still recovering from something that happened in January and still struggling with drinking.

Today is a blah kind of day. I woke up before my alarm but then after the kids left for school, I climbed back in bed and fell sort of asleep for an hour - a bad habit I started this winter on days when I just couldn't face the day. I've had major depression at … Continue reading The Blahs

Trying to come up with a roller derby name is hard. I'm not even sure sometimes if I'm really a derby girl/chick: am I fierce enough? Ten years ago: yes. Twenty years ago: definitely yes.
