Upon Reflection, A Self-Edit and Self-Correction

If you read here two days ago, you read the post I wrote about finding some grief to be less about the loss and more about the show. I’ve since erased that post. Since then, I’ve done nothing but reflect on my own relationship with my godfather. The deeper I’ve dug, the more cause I’ve […]

More of Same

I’ll just say this right now – this is a continuation of my grieving process. At first, I contemplated not writing more on how I am feeling right now, thinking it might be “too much.” But too much for whom? It’s not as though I have scores of readers – and even if I did, […]

When God Leaves

For many years, all my life, really, I have lamented the lack of relationship with my father. I’ve written about it, ranted about it, cried about it. What I’ve never written about was the man who was, in many ways, my father. He was not a man with whom my mother had any sort of […]

Mama Needs A New Set of Wheels

We’ve known for some time now that we needed a new car. Our current car is actually my FIRST car, a 94 Camry that I bought as a young single hottie, with no idea that this car would ferry me to visit a very hot studly guy, that it would help me to transport all […]

Poor Punksin is sick, as you know.  The word “sick” is kind of fluid here, since it seems that in this case it just consists of coughing and a whole lot of fucking sniffing.  And it’s the sniffing that is driving me absolute batshit. You have to understand, people.  We are not talking an occasional […]

Why This Site is So Boring

Hopefully, reading my rants, raves and thoughts isn’t boring you. But if you’re wondering why I’m using this sorry-ass WordPress template, blame the Tech Guru, who has been promising me a redesign for so long that it’s gotten to be a joke around our house. First, the delay was caused by the fact that he […]

It’s Happy Time!

It’s so quiet. Punksin is home sick today and she is actually Taking A Nap. Oh wait. Never mind. She just woke up. So much for the house being quiet.  I was going to write about how quiet it is in here with her and her brother sleeping at the same time, but she just […]

So What the Hell Were We Talking About Again?

I am continually amazed – stupefied, I tell you – at the turns my conversations with Punksin take. Today’s ride home from school went as follows: Punksin: I don’t feel so good. (She had already told me this, and truth be told, her eyes were showing signs of a cold and she’s been coughing and […]

The Things I Learn

I have picked up a freelance gig doing some copywriting for a website.  I actually worked for them 2 years ago but I told them after about a month that they were way too disorganized and I needed to stop.  It didn’t pay that much and their chaotic way of working was making it take […]

Yes, I Know “Horn” Is a Word

Every single time we get in the car to go anywhere, Punksin immediately asks “Mommy, do you want to play a game with me?” Most of the time, my internal answer is no. I just want to have a minute to think and try to get us where we’re going without having an accident with […]
