A Black Wave Approaches

I have one word for you today: ugh. Add to that: blah. And blech. And any other word that implies feeling like utter crap. It’s not physical, although I think that’s coming. Punksin has been really sick for the past couple of days, fever, coughing, blowing her nose enough to go through a whole box […]

The Hair Chronicles

I swear, the older I get, the looser I get. I think I was fairly tightly wound as a kid. Not that I didn’t like to yuk it up and have a good time, but I was always following a prescribed ROLE. And I don’t think that’s necessarily a TERRIBLE thing, because it kept me […]

A Weekend of Sisterhood in Chicago

I just came back from Chicago – spent the weekend there with my super fabulous sister Denise. It was a good trip and rather spur of the moment (as in, less than a month’s planning). She was going and…I decided to tag along for protective purposes. I’m glad I went. For both of us. She […]

A Plethora of Pet Peeves

I know: you’ve been reading the past few days of posts and seeing pet peeve after pet peeve after pet peeve and now you’re wondering: what crawled up HER ass? Well, I was wondering that myself. I try as much as possible to be self-aware so that I don’t inflict too much of my bitchiness […]

Dialing it Down

Well, I’m still on the Wellbutrin, and I don’t feel like quite the crackhead I was feeling before, but still… I want to get off. I don’t think it’s making that much of a difference. I think regaining my own equilibrium is making a difference. And I don’t think that’s happening because of the drugs […]

Wellbutrin, We Hardly Knew Ye

I don’t know, people. I don’t know. It’s only been what, less than a week, since I’ve been on this stuff? No, it has been over a week because I got it last Sunday or Saturday. I am not feeling this at all. From an emotional standpoint, I do feel better. I do. But I […]

What Happens When People Don’t Communicate with Me Properly

I have to admit…I rarely check my email anymore. It’s just not that exciting, or necessary. Most of it is junk crap that I signed up for over the years, everything from daily affirmations to deals from Groupon to blah blah blah. Who cares? I get a lot of coupons there too, but when I […]

It’s Not PMS and If You Say It Is I’ll Shank You

I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I’ve been incredibly irritable the past several days. I’m not sure if the Lexapro isn’t working so well, or what it is. Maybe it’s the vacation I keep saying everyone else needs. Clearly I could use one myself. But I think – I think the reason I’m not […]

It’s A Shitty Day in the Neighborhood

It’s 9:10 p.m. In a little under 3 hours this day will be over, and BOY WILL I BE GLAD. It hasn’t been a horrible day. Nothing completely awful and terrible happened. My life did not drastically change for the worse. So, I suppose I shouldn’t complain. But, fuck it, I’m going to ANYHOW. It […]

Life is Like a Rollercoaster, Not a Freaking Box of Chocolates

At least…my life is. Somewhat. I have highs… And then I have lows. Unfortunately for me, my lows are pretty effing low. I mean, dig down 6 feet into the ground low. My aunt recently had a birthday party, and I was all gung-ho to help her celebrate but then when the party actually happened… […]
