February 16 - Proud
Jeren reminded me that four years ago I was still waiting tables.
February 16, 2023

When was the last time someone told you they were proud of you?

It’s late. It’s been a long couple of days, weeks…just going anywhere with a baby is challenging but traveling with a 10 month old and sharing a hotel room with her is something else. It’s been quite a fun adventure and she’s truly a trooper. I need to get to sleep though— so I’ll keep this brief.

It’s not often anyone tells me they are proud of me—but the last time someone did just so happens to be today. My husband, Jeren, told me he was proud of me as I was trying to manage the rising anxiety about what I said this time on the Joe Rogan Experience, which was about to drop.

This is always a normal part of the process because I’m so comfortable with Joe, I truly forget that once I’m out of the wormhole, people will be listening and we cover so much ground and jump from topic to topic so fast—I’ll get done and be like, “WHAT DID I SAY???”

Factory Settings: MONEY!

This week on #FactorySettings @justjeren and I talk about the elephant in the room. MONEY! We talk about when we first became aware of it, how it affected our parents' divorces, how much we spent on our addiction, being dependent, financial insecurity and so much more!

Maggie is back! Also: The "No Complaining" challenge.

Unedited Check-In 144

Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.

Good Morning! ☀️

Dumpster Diving Material

Pham, it's been a big week for news but I need some weird Dumpster Diving stories because we can't have our final Dumpster Fire in the undisclosed location with no Pheral Phetasy. That would sacrilege.

March 29 - Competetion
At some point, I saw red—and I completely snapped. I lost my mind.

What activity, task, or game most brings out your competitive streak?

This writing prompt immediately brings to mind one summer in the late 1980s when I nearly murdered my cousin.

March 28 - Look Outside
Always leave a place better than you found it.

Go to the nearest window. Look out for a full minute. Write about what you saw.

Hummingbirds play. Squirrels and birds and bees go about their business. Hope comes outside to investigate and disrupts the squirrel eating a fallen orange from the orange tree. All the critters scramble and Hope meanders back inside after doing her business in the yard and sniffing around.

The orange tree is blossoming and also bearing fruit. The kumquat tree is exploding with tasty sweet tart citrus bursts from all the rain. More coming tomorrow. You can feel it in the air. The hummingbirds reappear.

The grass is green, I’m glad I made the effort and put in the investment to grow it. Always leave a place better than you found it. I’m burning this view into my brain, viewing it differently, the way you view something when you know it will soon be a memory.
