Year in Review: 2018 Didn’t Totally Suck

Last year didn’t start off well for me. It was more like Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness than Shiny and Oh So Bright. I quit a job that payed well because the money wasn’t worth crying every day. I still cried for a month afterward but that was because my bank account was sadContinue reading “Year in Review: 2018 Didn’t Totally Suck”

Pinky Swear

The boyfriend and I were having our once-every-few-years conversation about marriage. It’s more of a conversation about not getting married. Really it’s about keeping promises or our ability to not keep promises. He used to be very deterred by the fact that I’ve been divorced. Also, I don’t feel especially bad about the divorce. ToContinue reading “Pinky Swear”

Inspiration: Movies, Cooking & Surfing

    For the last month, maybe two months, I have been rather uninspired. I have been in the valley (aka the pits of despair) with this guy  . . . Not really. I haven’t even been to a literal valley. For Pete’s sake, I haven’t even been to Cleveland for several months.  I’ve mostlyContinue reading “Inspiration: Movies, Cooking & Surfing”

Driving Maybe. Sinking Definitely

I shouldn’t tell you. It’s too much information maybe. I feel like I’m sinking into a murky abyss. Nothing is going right and it affects everyone around me. I’m sinking and dragging everyone down.

Christmas Doesn’t Have to be Perfect, right?

The tree is up. No mice fell out of it – thank goodness! The box was slightly open so there was a possibility of a mouse hiding in the branches. The Elf on the Shelf has been found. I forgot her name for a few minutes. It’s Belle. Well, that’s what it said on Instagram.Continue reading “Christmas Doesn’t Have to be Perfect, right?”

The Neighbor’s Dog is a Jerk

  This week, I’ve read a few really great posts about things going on in the world. So I’m over here not telling you anything important or exciting. Funny, maybe. My neighbor’s dog is a jerk. A greedy little bastard that doesn’t want me to go into my house or see my kid sit onContinue reading “The Neighbor’s Dog is a Jerk”

Kidney Chronicles: Let’s Do Our Nails Again

My friends, my mom, the doctor all want to know, “How do you feel?” I’m supposed to say fine. Fine. I feel freaking awesome. It’s all a lie. The only good thing I could say to the doctor was that my nails look great. Really, they do. I’ve had nothing but time to spend onContinue reading “Kidney Chronicles: Let’s Do Our Nails Again”

More Anxious than . . .

I was anxious yesterday. Honestly, I may be anxious every day but I was especially anxious yesterday. It was a stressful work day. I was waiting anxiously for everyone to yell at me for anything and everything. Someone noticed the anxiousness oozing out of my body. It was probably sweat but it looked like anxiety.Continue reading “More Anxious than . . .”
