This is a draft that began during Spring Break (April) 2022. Newer, more relevant content coming soon. It started innocently enough, a little tickle in my throat as I drove into work. As the day went on that tickle turned into an itch that got worse as I sniffled and swallowed all the extra goo … Continue reading Fever. →
I’ll be at the store for something extremely trivial but for whatever reason absolutely necessary at the moment, when something small catches my eye. Something that reminds me of my boyfriend, or an old friend. Maybe a game or puzzle or some other activity I think so and so would really enjoy. Or maybe it’s … Continue reading Things that Sting →
My favorite time is the quiet time. That all too brief spell when freshly fallen snow blankets the world and muffles everything. A muted world. I’m a hypocrite, though, and I know there are days when I can’t stand the quiet. Where I rave and fight against the possibility of being left to my thoughts. … Continue reading Snow →
Now I know we’ve all likely been confronted with feelings or facts we’d rather not acknowledge, so I’ve put together this post for the uninitiated (or anyone new to avoiding the uncertain and uncomfortable). Keep your hands busy, find a craft or a chore or an errand that NEEDS doing right now. By focusing on … Continue reading Avoidance; a How-To guide for beginners →
So you remember the ice bucket challenge, right? It was supposed to be a fundraiser thing for ALS or something; instead it became an excuse to dump ice on yourself and film it for Facebook. Simpler times. Anyways; I never understood what was “challenging@ about dumping ice over your head. I mean, if anything it’s … Continue reading “It’s like the ice bucket challenge, but with feelings instead of fingers“ →
If you’ve spent some time here, read along with the story so far you may have noticed I don’t seem to spend much time with Family. “Why is that?” You wonder, “With so much loss you’d think the family would come together and support each other. Bloods thicker than water after all…” Yeah, except when … Continue reading Family is a 4-letter word →
Today marks the first year since my Dad died. That’s exactly one year of my existence on a planet where my parents aren’t. Where I can’t call them, or stop by on a random Tuesday to say hi. A whole circuit around the sun on a big blue rock when I didn’t have them to … Continue reading One Year Later ; A reflection & “as told by Dad” ghost story is →
Tomorrow is one year since I sat & watched my Dad breath his last. It’s surreal to me now, that an entire year of my life has occurred since then. At the same time it seems like eons ago, like a movie I saw before I was old enough to follow the plot. The quote … Continue reading Good Ghost Stories →
How does it feel to be grieving a year later? It’s different, but I’m not sure how much so. I know a lot hasn’t happened that I expected, and a lot of things have come up that I never saw coming. As far as this loss goes, it’s a wound. A year ago I got … Continue reading How’s it Feel, like Really Feel? →
Let me stop you right there friend, this isn’t your usual blog post about gardening woes. I’m not here writing to complain about my lack luster tomato plants or the squirrels that are digging holes in the garden beds killing what little is thriving (even though that is happening…) No, I want to burn my … Continue reading Why I want to set fire to my garden →
