Me Me Me It’s All About Me

This year, yesirree it fucking is. I am going to start doing around here, the same shit I started doing at my last job when it became apparent that they wished I would just have the baby and fucking disappear. THE MINIMUM AMOUNT POSSIBLE TO GET OVER. For the past 8 years, I have devoted […]

Some of Us Are Dead in the Water, And Some of Us Ain’t

I am ABSOLUTELY FREAKING EXHAUSTED. I don’t know if this happens to other people, but I get where I’m so tired that I can’t eat. This little quirk of mine is an awesome weight-maintenance tool. That, and the complete lack of desire for food when I’m stressed, which, given how often I get stressed, also […]

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 […]

Dragonlore

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 […]

It All Begins With Peace

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: If you find yourself constantly accusing SEVERAL people of the same faults, perhaps it’s time to look…INWARD. If you have been complaining about being misunderstood, not by one person, but by many, for DECADES, it’s time to look…INWARD. If your life is such that arguments and […]

Thanks, But No Thanks? Really?

Today I was in a creative mood. Not a writing mood, more of a – visual arts kind of thing. So I worked on a vase that I’ve been crafting over several months. I find that while I’m doing that kind of work, I get more…reflective. When I’m writing, I need to concentrate on writing […]

I Am Happy Today and You Can’t Touch This

I have no idea WHY I am in such a good mood. I think…it’s a whole bunch of things coming together. Oh wait. I AM pissed about one thing. So I told you my doctor wrote to me to tell me that my iron levels were dangerously low. And she asked me a few questions, […]

Own It, Fix It, Change It, or Shut the $#&*% Up

Maybe it’s the weather today – it’s raining cats and dogs over here – but I am in what could be called a FOUL MOOD today. Not a depressed mood, just really intolerant of people and their bullshit. You know, and yes, I am about to get up on my soapbox here, I try really […]

Negative Numbers

That would describe my appetite right about now: it’s in negative numbers. Not only do I not want to eat, but I feel like I want to throw up. Except it’s hard to throw up when you haven’t eaten. I managed to cook this morning, though: pancakes (I make mine from SCRATCH, thank you) and […]

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 […]
