If you have family that donated to Trump online in the past few months, tell ’em to double check their accounts…

There's low, and then there's a limbo bar so close to the ground an ant can't get under it. This is THAT low. Now, I can't stand the Dump. Not a surprise. And I'm sure there's a ton of folks that are scoffing and going "whelp, you get conned by a con-man and you were … Continue reading If you have family that donated to Trump online in the past few months, tell ’em to double check their accounts…

No Time to Say Goodbye: Surviving the Suicide of a Loved One, by Carla Fine

My Copy: 9780385485517 (image from amazon.com) I'm not sure what exactly I expected to get from this book, but I did find it immensely helpful in a lot of ways. I think the title sums up what might be the overarching, lingering thing about dealing with suicide--most of the time, there's no time to say … Continue reading No Time to Say Goodbye: Surviving the Suicide of a Loved One, by Carla Fine

I’m having 16,000 second thoughts about the “family moving in” thing, & I’m hoping like hell it’s not too late…

I think that number's about accurate. I had the thoughts coming in the past few days, but I've been so exhausted I haven't had a chance to think properly. They came to a head yesterday with a crying and screaming fit that worked me into a near migraine. First of all, I was avoiding the … Continue reading I’m having 16,000 second thoughts about the “family moving in” thing, & I’m hoping like hell it’s not too late…

Making the Call No One Wants to Make, After Getting the Call No One Wants…

My week's been a blur. I haven't been on the internet in days, because less than three hours after I finished the post that ended up scheduled for Wednesday, I got a call from the police to get home ASAP. I'd just been writing about my dad and me in the past week, and how … Continue reading Making the Call No One Wants to Make, After Getting the Call No One Wants…

My Copy: 9780316253031 (image from amazon.com) Well, now I'm back to my Canadian author after the holiday. Chris Hadfield is probably the best known astronaut of the 21st century so far, and no wonder when you read this book and see what all he got involved in. I haven't had the chance to read many … Continue reading An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth, by Col. Chris Hadfield

This week on the trip to rock bottom…

I'm declaring Feb 21st - 22nd, 2018 as my rock bottom, and I'll be damned before I let myself get that far down again: emotionally, physically, and financially. The epiphany I had in mid January really came to a drastic crossroad this week, and I really have to put the pedal to the metal and … Continue reading This week on the trip to rock bottom…

My Preciousss… a Love/Hate Relationship With the Sports Bra

Simply speaking, the sports bra is a stretchy piece of fabric that fits over your head (or around your chest) and is supposed to hold the breasts during exercise. Okay, men, I'll give your eyes a moment to linger over that word... Exercise! Out of your system now?... Moving on. I admit, I find them … Continue reading My Preciousss… a Love/Hate Relationship With the Sports Bra

Let’s do the Time Warp (but actually LEARN something this time)

I spent hours and days making my Plan of Attack to clean and throw crap away that I don't need. Now that dad's home, that's slowed to a trickle because I want him to get his rest. But my office--I think I'll have to re-read Dante's Inferno to figure out what level of Hell it … Continue reading Let’s do the Time Warp (but actually LEARN something this time)
