Blitz Q #170: Can you really get rid of psychosomatic symptoms long-term?

I was trying to figure out what's been wrong with me the past several days. Migraine here, nausea there, another crazy headache right now as I type this (mostly with my eyes closed to give my pain a break). My days haven't let me get much done because of it, and I've been annoyed. Things … Continue reading Blitz Q #170: Can you really get rid of psychosomatic symptoms long-term?

Q #166: Why do people still fall for business pyramid schemes, & after being exposed, how the hell do many of these companies still exist?

I lost count the number of Anti-MLM mini-documentaries I've watched the past few weeks, and about so many companies. Many more than I ever knew existed, or ones I had heard of, but had no idea they were Multi-Level Marketing companies. Shows how often I branch out when shopping, I guess. And I'd never join … Continue reading Q #166: Why do people still fall for business pyramid schemes, & after being exposed, how the hell do many of these companies still exist?

When you’re falling behind, but don’t seem to care…

I don't know what it is, but I've let so many things slide this week. Things I've absolutely had to do, like coursework and finals (which I'm going to try to take tomorrow, hell or high water), house-cleaning and exercise. I did get quite a bit accomplished outside, I have to admit. I spray-painted my … Continue reading When you’re falling behind, but don’t seem to care…

Trapped between a rock & a hard place, & all the while I can see the path below plain as day…

My excitement over getting a new self-sustaining chapter in my life has started developing a bitter taste the past few weeks, and it's only getting worse. Don't get me wrong, I like the solar company I'm working with and they are doing what they can to help me out. It's the financing company we both … Continue reading Trapped between a rock & a hard place, & all the while I can see the path below plain as day…

My Garden Weekend: saving time & running ragged all at once.

I'm still trying to figure out this weekend and what all I got done or could do. Then again, intense sleep depravation doesn't help recollections all that well. I just hope I got enough done that I can look at in the morning and be satisfied, and come up with a fair-weather plan for the … Continue reading My Garden Weekend: saving time & running ragged all at once.

Optimism, the hard crash, & stress cleaning all in one day…

Yeah, I feel ya, Spongebob. I wasn't expecting much from today, except trying to get some information for my house so when it's time for the improvements, all is in order. I'd hoped to have more time for Masterclasses, gardening, and writing... but the records issue sucked up most of the day. Especially after the … Continue reading Optimism, the hard crash, & stress cleaning all in one day…

When you’ve finally snapped out of it, but have no clue how it happened…

I've been on a bit of a cleaning streak the past few days. I have no clue how, after months of just being listless, searching for something but getting nowhere, and having no energy... I just got up and started cleaning mid-morning on Saturday. I put my keyboard down, started some laundry, went to my … Continue reading When you’ve finally snapped out of it, but have no clue how it happened…

Borrowed Q #157: Jan 6, 2021 was… a “revolution” of what, exactly?

This is just a small question in a fabulous post by the great John Pavlovitz written two days ago. I had to think of what was bugging me (other than everything) about the "Tit Offensive" as some have called it ("Beer Gut Putsch" works, too). But that's what I found disconcerting, because from my understanding, … Continue reading Borrowed Q #157: Jan 6, 2021 was… a “revolution” of what, exactly?

Sugar Shock!: How sweets & simple carbs can derail your life–& how you can get back on track, by Connie Bennett, C.H.H.C. & Stephen T. Sinatra, M.D.

My Copy: 9780425213575 (image from bn.com) I skipped this book to the head of the line when I was about to go to the hospital for scoping procedures and knew my eating habits would need to be changed. I've been wanting to do so, but this book had some great wake-up calls and reminders to … Continue reading Sugar Shock!: How sweets & simple carbs can derail your life–& how you can get back on track, by Connie Bennett, C.H.H.C. & Stephen T.
