Some People Are So Confused

OMG. There’s been so much going on in the news and in life that I hardly know where to begin. Today I read that Raven-Symone said she is “from every continent in Africa except one, and from every continent in Europe except one.” Now, that’s just sad. So so sad. This type of ignorance just […]

My Life in Bullet Points

I know, I know. It’s been a long while. Which is why I’m reduced to updating you in bullet points, cuz frankly I don’t have the time to type all that shit. Plus, I can’t even remember all of it. Mostly that last part. Here, in no chronological order whatsoever, is my life over the […]

DQ Does NOT Mean Dairy Queen

So there was OTHER shitty stuff about yesterday that I didn’t get into. Yesterday was Punksin’s first OUTSIDE meet. I’m trying to think of ways in which it could have been worse. I’ll start with the good news, though, because there is some. The good news is, she’s over it. The good news is, her […]

Today The Dragon Won

I sit here at my computer and feel as though blood should be dripping on the keys. But, my wounds are internal, unseen, untended. Sigh. Today the dragon came and he did not find a white dragon waiting for him. I tried SO hard to be that white dragon, today of all days, but…I failed. […]

I Think I Might Be Wreck-It Ralph or A Saint

The kids and I went to see Wreck-It Ralph. Great movie…much much better than I thought it would be. And it made me cry. I don’t want to give the whole movie away, but the premise of the story is that there’s a bad guy in a video game who’s tired of being the bad […]

I resumed doing something I haven’t done in a looooong time. Meditation. Add to that a bit more prayer, and I’ve been feeling a lot more…peaceful. My walk-in closet holds my meditative/prayer sanctuary but it had become quite unkempt. Clothes everywhere. An altar whose dust silently reprimanded me every time I looked at it. A […]

Turning Tides

I owe it to some people who have voiced concern about my welfare to let them know that the tide has turned and the sheer desolation has dissipated. For now. I cannot express how much it means to me to have people reach out. When you are complaining about loneliness, even one voice, one hand […]

It is only November 8th and this is already shaping up to be one of the most difficult Novembers I have ever experienced. There does not seem to be much to celebrate. A few days ago we got a notice that Punksin has a swim meet on my birthday. Mind you, we are told about […]

Short and Not So Sweet

There are life updates. Seriously. I’ve just been in too shitty a mood to go into them. Some of them have been good. Some of them have been not so good. And although in either case I tend to be pretty wordy with the here’s-what’s-happening-in-my-life posts, right now, I am so not in the fucking […]

The Valley of the Shadow of Death

October 4th, 9:00 AM: Punksin has been sick since last Saturday [the 30th] and now that she is on the tail end of it, Pudding is starting to show signs of also coming down with a cold. Throughout the night he has not slept well due to a stuffed nose. He awoke with a slight […]
