Melancholy Mood

February 22, 2016 | life, rants | Permalink

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 […]

The Poverty Line

November 18, 2015 | life, rants | Permalink

Pondering “the poverty line” while having my coffee and waiting for ibuprofen to kick in so I can print some towels. Thinking I may be picking a political scab but like I said it is just pondering, not an invitation for political bashing. Chris and I are below “the poverty line”, well below this line […]

Community vs Clique

December 1, 2014 | life, rants | Permalink

I had hoped as an adult cliques would cease to exist. Sadly though I see they have not. It is very disheartening to me. I see a growing group of folks using the word Community when they really mean to say Clique. I observe how these folks interact with each other and then how they act […]

Resentments

November 12, 2014 | life, rants | Permalink

I am just full of blog posts this week aren’t I? Or at least full of it… I have been puttering around the craft room this morning listening to TedTalks and pondering resentments. Thinking about a novel I have been reading and one of the main characters is resentful because her husband gets to leave […]

That time of year

November 4, 2014 | holiday, life, rants | Permalink

The dreaded question was asked last night…. What are we doing for Thanksgiving? Thinking about the holidays makes me anxious and sick to my stomach. Societies norm for how we “celebrate” them is based on the past. I just don’t think it is realistic anymore. Celebration is NOT what comes to my mind when I […]

Three Pairs of Yoga Pants… and a Raincoat

October 4, 2014 | life, rants | Permalink

This was me at 5:00am…I hate that one thing leads to another and the monkeys multiple… I awoke to the pitter patter of rain on my window sill. Normally a soothing thing to hear while resting comfortably in my bed. But not when you have to be up an at ‘em in a few hours […]

Me Me Me

This is oh so true. Hell, even my past difficult self is a great tool for growth. I have been involved in an incident recently that has brought attention to my narcissistic tendencies. I do work hard to not be this way and when I see it in others it makes me work harder. I […]

Time and Money..My Two Cents

May 7, 2014 | life, rants | Permalink

This is something I saw on Facebook yesterday… My comment was to open your own business so work doesn’t feel like work…snarky comment…must be nice to be able to do that. Well yes, yes it is nice…but it did not happen on its own…lets examine this quote….I am uninspired to create art this morning so […]

What to say….

March 25, 2014 | life, rants | Permalink

What to say and what not to say….that is the question. A lot of my worry and discontent is based on bottling up things that I feel are inappropriate to say. But do you ever feel like other folks say whatever the hell they want to you with no regards to your feelings….or what your […]
