Sick As A What?

Why do people say “sick as a dog“? I mean, do dogs often get sick? And when they do, do they FEEL AS SHITTY AS I DO RIGHT NOW? Anyhow, whatever the history behind THAT phrase (I’ll have to look it up now because I know YOU won’t), I am THAT kind of sick. I […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

Pudding

Today is Pudding’s birthday. I love him so much. Every July 4th, when we go to see fireworks, I am reminded of 2007, the year in which I heard fireworks cascading all around me as I went into labor. Because I had had several false alarms, I thought that this most recent set of pangs […]

Baby Steps

Well, it’s late afternoon, and for some reason that I don’t quite understand, I haven’t crashed yet. But tonight, I am taking some sleeping pills and I am going to bed EARLY. Although I would love to get some writing done first…I’ll see if I can think coherently. You know, I was thinking today about […]

Delicious Thunder

This morning I awoke to the loud rumblings of thunder. I love thunderstorms. There’s something so amazingly powerful carried in that energy, and although it’s the lightning that does the most damage and gives incredible visuals, the bass of the unseen thunder is what really moves me. I lay there, soaking it all in. Waiting […]
