Getting Older Sucks

Gray hair.  Wrinkles.  Creaky ankles and knees.  A sore back.  Hell, I think I'm even shrinking. Getting older sucks. Now, I'm not old.  I am what they would call "middle age".  But damn do I feel... old. And I'm tired of it. As those who know me probably remember I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes a while back. ... Continue Reading →

Lazy. I’m Mrs. Lazy….

  ...I need a doughnut to call my own.... Well not really.  Well, I mean I do, but... I am trying a new positive self-talk thing (not positive self-talk like "you're really good at eating doughnuts).  More like: "I'm gonna rock this weight loss thing"! Hmmm.  Yeah.  I say it.  And I mean it.  I say it... Continue Reading →

Best Intentions

  It's been over two months since I blogged.  What the hell is going on with me? You know, I have no idea. I think it's all about intentions.  And I have the best of them.  Seems that everything I start (and don't finish) comes with my best intentions. This blog, for instance.  I wanted...

Social Lepers Unite!

Making friends is hard y’all.  It’s even more difficult when you’re married to the principle. As most of you know, we live at a clothing-optional resort here in California.  My husband is the general manager of the resort where we reside.  It’s a wonderful gig and he loves his job.  I love his job and...

Thank You and It’s Nice To Meet You

I recently started writing again.  Well, I recently started sharing my writing again.  There is this strange thing that happens to me when I share my writing with other people and I’m not sure if it says more about me and my lack of ability to communicate with IRL or… well, that’s probably it.  Anyway,...

When Will It Be Time?

Another day.  Another school shooting. Welcome to modern day America. Yesterday was Valentine’s Day in the U.S.  The day that Christians once would have celebrated a mysterious Saint Valentine and a day that pagans celebrate as Lupercalia.  Yesterday marked the 89th anniversary of the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre where seven of Bugs Moran’s men were...

Trying Something New. Again.

Yup.  Again.  I guess it's not technically new.  But it's new for 2018.  Does that count? First of all, I quit smoking.  It's been eight days since I've had a cigarette.  Most people would probably say "I'm quitting" this early on, but I refuse to.  I quit.  End of story.  I'm not picking them back up. ...

Conquering The Carbs

What does it take to make a person give a shit about themselves? I haven't quite figured this one out yet. It would seem that some people need a small prod. Some people need a swift, firm kick in the ass. And still yet, some others never quite seem to give a shit at all.... Continue Reading →

It’s Not You. It’s Me.

i·so·late verb ˈīsəˌlāt/ 1. cause (a person or place) to be or remain alone or apart from others. I isolate. Yup. I admit it. I isolate. If I'm depressed, I isolate. My depressive episodes are all-encompassing. They are brutal and ruinous and each one that I escape relatively unscathed makes me question whether I'll survive... Continue Reading →
