Ashes to ashes…

I’ve been thinking abut mortality lately. Mostly mine, but other peoples too. When I was in the hospital I had two moments where I “went there” in my head. Those thoughts, on any given day, can be a road that leads to isolation and fear, but when you are in the hospital , well, they […]

My Sister’s Addiction – Part III

I love the Real Housewives. I watch all of them except New York which I lost interest in Season 1. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is one of my favorites, but like them all, the overly dramatic screaming and diva fighting is getting old. Most of it is contrived, and in my opinion, one step […]

Ok, don’t think I’m crazy but my Mom spoke to be from the afterlife.

Yesterday I spent the day celebrating the first birthday of The OC’s since she passed away. It was a good day filled with lots of laughs doing things that she loved. It was a nice way to spend a moment and keep her close in our thoughts. Death and grief are such a tornado of […]

Suddenly my life is filled with moments that redefine how you view your existence. It’s been a strange string of coincidences this past few weeks that have been a living reminder that life is short and don’t take it for granted. I’ve always been a YOLO kind of person. I think my inner hardware always […]

I have been gone too long. Eeeeek… Not a good way to keep social media engagement numbers up. Thanks to those who continually hang around, your loyalty is appreciated! I honestly can’t explain away my absence. I’ve just been buy with daily stuff and somewhat stuck in a funk. I’m normally a pretty happy person […]

September 11. Every year I write about it just like it was yesterday. It’s the type of tragedy that sticks with you like that sticky piece of gum on your memory that makes it easy to recall exactly where you were and what you were doing when you heard the news. I remember feeling an […]

Live Life

I had this long winded post about how people aren’t nice anymore and then my friend posted a picture of her husbands gravestone and I realized my negativity is very superficial. Do what makes you happy and screw anyone who tries to tell you otherwise. Go live life people.

Yesterday I Felt Like Crap

I had this long post written about how my Hashimoto’s has made me feel crappy the past few days. I spent 30 minutes writing about the difference between thyroid issues and Hashimoto’s and how saying Hashimoto’s is just about your thyroid is like saying only eating donuts make you fat. Lots of things make you […]

We are heading into week three of our summer vacation. Andrew pretty much has his shit together, I on the other hand do not. I’m pretty sure I have accomplished nothing that I needed to get done and very little of what I didn’t need to. In other words, I’ve pretty much done nothing. In my […]

6) I grind my teeth when I sleep. Hard. When I was a kid I was so loud that I used to wake up everyone in the house. I still grind my teeth, but now I wear a mouth guard and I bite the living shit out of that thing. The dentist said the one I currently wear is […]
