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 […]

Happy New Year’s MoFos!

Happy 2013. 2012…I don’t even know what to say about 2012. It was an ass-kicker of gargantuan proportions. In sooooo many ways. For 2013…my plan is to take matters into my hands, as much as I can. Less passivity and just letting shit HAPPEN, and more MAKING shit happen. I need to do this, if […]

The Sounds of Silence

I know…it’s been a while. There’s been a lot going on at home, and when I get a minute to breathe, which probably won’t be until AFTER Christmas, I’ll fill you in on some of the drama… But, there’s the Newtown thing. Things like that happen and I struggle, as a writer, with how to […]

Hold On, I’m Having A Moment Here

Did I mention I stopped taking ALL my meds? Yup. ALL OF IT. I stopped the Lexapro, which I believe I actually wrote about during the process. And then I was just on the Wellbutrin and I felt like I was taking sugar pills, so I stopped THOSE cold turkey, and I guess I could […]

I Am Officially No Longer A Lexapro Ho, Whoo Hoo!!!

Hey folks, I got a song for ya to sing: (to the tune of Happy Birthday – the real version, not the Stevie Wonder MLK version. I hate that crap. I mean, I like the real song but I don’t like to hear it sung at a regular birthday party. It just…rankles.) Congratulations to me, […]

A New Chapter

Punksin started school yesterday. Public school. Third grade. Pudding starts tomorrow. Same school. Kindergarten. I’ve already decided that I am going to be keeping notes on the things Punksin tells me (and Pudding, possibly), and they will either become fodder for a book, or at very least, a long list of reasons that I will […]

Things I Learned Over the Weekend

A sick 5-year old is VERY VERY MISERABLE. A sick 5-year old often results in a sick mommy. Chuck E. Cheese sucks ass even more than I thought: their latest TV ads promote birthdays as being “funner” at Chuck E. Cheese. FUNNER? REALLY? Thank GOD I have taught my kids to hate you and your […]

Blessed Sleep and Work Gets Done

Well, last night, I made sure I took a sleeping pill so that I would fall asleep. Because by 8:00 I was still feeling tired but wired, and I knew if I didn’t get any sleep, it would get evil up in here. I am pleased to report that I knocked out another hefty chunk […]

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 […]

BiPolar: It’s the New Black

So yesterday I wanted to kill myself, today I am writing my ass off and thinking that I am the shit and then some. Does that make me bipolar? I don’t know. To clarify, though, I don’t really feel like I am the best thing to happen since Jesus; I was purposely exaggerating. I still […]
