Don’t Forget to Hang Up!

Let me start with this:  I like my job.  I love my co-workers.  I like various benefits of my job; some more than others.  Let me lay it out. Pros: I work with my husband and we work well together.

In The Dust

Last month I got a notice on my credit card that I had been billed for my WordPress account.  Apparently I had it set up on auto pay.  I looked at it, thought "maybe I should actually utilize it' and closed my account page without thinking much more of it.  This morning, for whatever reason,...

In Mourning

Driving home down long, dark, quiet roads last night my husband and I got to talking about my loved ones that have passed over the past two years.  It got me to thinking about mourning and the way it hits you out of the blue now and again for no apparent reason, with no apparent...

Spin Me Right Round, Baby

It's been over a month and I still have no idea what to write about.  I've gone over it and over it and nothing exciting or interesting pops to mind.  I guess my brain is just... dry.   Well, except for me obsessing over our upcoming trips out of country.  And bills.  And trying to save...

Whelp, I did it.  I went on a cruise.  My first cruise.  My first cruise and a nude cruise, to boot.  I never thought I'd catch myself on a boat in the middle of the ocean, but that's exactly where I found myself over the past two weeks.  Aside from a few tears here and... Continue Reading →

Life Goes On

The holidays are upon us and this year is, hopefully, closing out a year of loss and pain and anger and sadness. Over the past year we have lost a beloved pet (she was with us for 15 years), my dad, my brother, a grandmother and my daughter's innocence and security. Having lived through the...
