Ever hear that quote, “love knows no bounds”? Well, apparently, neither does head lice.

Yes, that is how we started our Spring Break today. I had all these plans to get a ton of work done today while also entertaining my kids. Lofty goal, I know…every school break starts this way in our house though.

Great expectations followed by humbling circumstances.

I thought we’d escape the lice outbreak. Why? Because I’m a brat and think I’m invincible. Turns out, I’m not.

Lice=1, Ripps=0.

However, according to, IT’S NOT MY FAULT. (Look it up…that’s their tagline. Sort of phenomenal marketing. I totally clicked.) Lice really don’t give a shit who you think you are.

It’s hair nor there to them. (<< I thought about that one for a while.)

It’s amazing what kind of time you find when forced to do something. I, of course, didn’t have time to go to yoga, go for a walk, meditate, make a salad for lunch or balance my checkbook, but somehow I found the time to treat my daughter’s hair (1.5 hours) and 18 loads of laundry (6+ hours and still counting).

Time is a fickle thing. I have written about this before and I probably could until end of time (I’m just full of them today). But it’s just something I have a hard time wrapping my head around. It is truly the one thing we can’t make more of yet we waste it like it’s renewable.

I may be the most guilty of this.

Think of these 90 days. I have never done, or rather not done, anything for three months without being forced to, naturally or otherwise.

I remember thinking in years past when I’d get to the end of February, “had I stayed with my resolution, I’d be ‘this far’ by now.” It’s so surreal to think I can actually say it. And feel pretty damn good about it.

I feel much less nervous today than I have the past few. I think this is just going to be a constant ebb and flow. And what I’ve learned is that it probably is for everyone, I was just never paying attention.

I find myself wishing not for something ‘better’ or to ‘be’ better, only that I have the strength, tenacity and courage to deal with whatever comes my way.

I’m feelin’ pretty confident about that these days.

Hi, I'm Katy.
Your lifestyle designer and business mentor.

Writing is my way of unwinding and letting my thoughts roam free. Every so often, in the midst of this creative chaos, something clicks, and I'm like, "Hmm, maybe someone else will dig this too." So, I toss it out into the world, hoping it lands with someone who gets it.
I hope that's you.
