But where do I start?

I’ve been dreaming of writing again – often. I haven’t had much creative outlet lately and though I crave it, the day is filled with too many other “shoulds” that by the time my usual bedtime rolls around, I’m too tired to try and make any sense with my thoughts. I often jot down blog …

So emo

Now that Trump has taken office and got busy right away doing things, I find myself incredibly emotional. And probably not in the way that a lot of people are. I’m emotional about all the emotion that I’m hearing about at work and seeing on Facebook. There is SO much anger and angst. Empathy is …

To 2016 – it’s been real…

A lot of people are pissed about 2016, with the election of Donald Trump as president and so many celebrities dying. While those things are a bummer, they didn’t really shape my year as none of those people have much impact on my life. But 2016 was a funky year for me. Not one of …

It’s easy to get down on myself for things like our constantly messy home, the cluttered seats and floor of my car, my overall lack of organization or craftiness, and other things in life that we just can’t …

The Highlight of My Weekend Was a Couch.

And I am okay with that. I kind of find it amusing, considering the things that usually entertain me – a date, a night out with friends, a vacation, normal exciting things. But this couch was well-deserved and much needed. Ronnie’s been complaining about our couch for a good year now. Not sure why we …

Blur

I’m finally sitting down after a weekend of very little sitting. Actually, make that a whole couple weeks with very little down time. Lots has happened, and I haven’t documented any of it on any of my blogs, and I am okay with this. Rewinding, I suppose the oldest significant thing I remember from a …
