By Valerie Rice | October 25, 2020 Thanks to Covid-19, many of us continue to work from home. At the same time we, not only as individual nations, but as a WORLD, are experiencing virus fatigue, which is causing a serious uptick in the spread. This is not awesome. Not only does it spell troubleContinue reading “Wellness When Working From Home”

By Valerie Rice | October 23, 2020 Raise your hand if you are a perfect person. Anyone? No? Good. Perfect people are super annoying. And liars. Nobody is perfect.

By Valerie Rice | October 22, 2020 I read a local news story about a small brushfire that had broken out in an empty field behind a grocery store. The amount of hate in the comments was appalling.

I amContinue reading “Chronic Illness: A Day in the Life”
By Valerie Rice | October 14, 2020 Once upon a time, parents shuttled their minions onto a bus, bleary eyed and overwhelmed with books and sack lunches, for a day of learning away from home. They then sprinted off to a full day of whatever normal adults do for hours on end, I’m assuming itContinue reading “Suddenly Homeschooled”
Guest Post I once saw a meme that said “The definition of a boy: noise with dirt on it”. I grew up with three sisters and zero brothers. I never really dated.
