I want to write about my brother. I have no idea what there is to say. My brother was found, unresponsive, in a public restroom with drug paraphernalia around him. He had one shirt, one pair of shorts, two shoes, his prison ID and a dollar on him when he was found. He had none... Continue Reading →
Gone, Brother, Gone.
I have a brother. He is nine years older than me. He is intelligent and loving. He makes me laugh and cry. He makes me hold on to my hope. He inspires me to be empathetic and understanding. He makes me want to do more for my fellow human beings. He is an addict. He... Continue Reading →
A runaway train. That's my life. Right now. Since I last posted I have watched my life slip off it's tracks and go careening at full-speed into a wall of self-sabotage. I know I should be eating healthy. And I was. Until about two weeks ago. Okay, maybe longer. I am back on the carbs... Continue Reading →
Missing The Mark
This last week was, I thought, pretty good as far as meeting my goals. I ate well, went to the pool for some exercise, made it to my weekly meeting with the ladies. So you can imagine my surprise when I completely missed the mark on my last goal. My goals for last week: No... Continue Reading →
Change: Good For The Body, Good For The…
Well, it's really good for everything. I am going through what I hope to be a shift (instead of a phase) in my life. I'm making a point to change my thinking surrounding food and my health. I had a friend say a couple of different things this past week that really stuck in my... Continue Reading →
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 →
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... Continue Reading →
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... Continue Reading →
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,... Continue Reading →
