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 →
Greetings & thanks for coming. Tonight we’re going to talk about something a bit different, something I’m loathe to discuss and generally avoid thinking about. Today my dears we will discuss issues of obesity & the mental gymnastics I’ve performed around the subject. See, what you don’t know (unless you do, which means I know … Continue reading Delusions & other D-Words →
So first a disclaimer; as long as I can remember I have been fascinated by the unexplained. Ghosts, ufo’s, ancient mysteries like the pyramids or the Nazca lines…if it’s purported to exist I secretly wanna see it. That being said, I feel sometimes as if there’s just a bit too much coincidence in way things … Continue reading Serendipity or psychic phenomena? You be the judge →
My mom was a lot of things, but one thing she was above all else was independent. She raised me alone, sure she had friends & family who cares about us and helped where they could but at the end of the day it was just the two of us. So when it came to … Continue reading Independent Woman (Maybe not the Destiny’s Child version, but still relevant) →
