First Step

May 10, 2017 | inspiration, life | Permalink

Whaaaaaaaaat, it has been almost a YEAR since I blogged, the horror. I kind of fell apart last May and I guess I just got out of the habit. But I notice that I am getting wordier and wordier on Facebook and I better just get back on over here for all this blathering. Plus two […]

Yellow People Project

June 2, 2016 | life | Permalink

 My morning thoughts after I left the YMCA today were about the challenge it is for some of us to get through a day. Sometimes I think it would be nice to be able to tie a yellow bow on me somewhere to warn folks to let me have my space. And before you say […]

To Draw or Not To Draw….

June 1, 2016 | life | Permalink

Before you say anything, I am aware of the fact that in the time it would take to write this post I could have actually MADE something…anything…even if I just ironed towels. But I am feeling more introspective than creative today and would really rather just sit still and try and make sense of the […]

The lively introvert

To be my friend you have to accept the fact that we will probably never spend much time together. I am often surprised that I have maintained many friendships over the years and actually continue to make new friends. I am grateful that they understand me and don’t take it personally. I got up extra […]

Proof Positive

I am in a mood again today. But I realize why and it has me thinking about the company that we keep and why it is so important to be around uplifting folks. As a highly sensitive person I am deeply affected by words. Often never being able to let go of the particularly mean […]

At Peace

No one teaches you how to grieve an estranged family member. Hell, no one ever even talks about the possibility that you might have an estranged family member. It is taboo in polite society to say you haven’t talked to your grandmother, aka Nanew, in a decade. It is really very uncomfortable when the subject […]

Wedgie Down

Wedgie Down! No, not really, I am up, just had coffee and am sitting here wondering why I have such a headache. I woke up at 6:00 with a pounding headache, one that would rival a hangover, yet I didn’t have a drop of alcohol last night. Mae is pissed, I am afraid to leave […]

Melancholy Mood

Yesterday was a long day for me. Too long. And honestly I am not feeling much better about things today. But today I will get up and get out. I have too or I won’t get better. I would so rather be angry than melancholy. I am productive with anger. I have energy when I […]

Patterns, Excuses and Activewear

February 8, 2016 | exercise, life | Permalink

This morning I am pondering the breaking of patterns and beating excuses. Saying “I always” is really stifling. Today is my day off. I set my alarm for 5:45 so I could go to the Y. But it’s my day off! The bed was warm, the 3 littles were cuddly. So, I say I’ll go […]

Humble Pie

I was a restless sleeper last night and once when I was up the realization that Chris Solanto​ was right overcame me and I was up for 30 minutes coming to terms with that! LOL I am sorry for being so stubborn all the time Chris, but it is with all good intentions. The realization […]
