June 26, 2021 – In the nick of time.

Someone must be looking out for me because the timing of everything taking place couldn’t be more perfect. For the last two weeks, my husband and I have been preparing our house to get it ready to go on the market, and it officially listed today. But it’s what happened yesterday that’s much more newsworthyContinue reading “June 26, 2021 – In the nick of time.”

March 18, 2021 – Dreams, what do they mean?

What is it about dreams? They aren’t even ‘real’ and yet they can make us feel so much. I awoke this morning overwhelmed by guilt and all because of a dream. Sometimes the emotions I experience as a result of a good or bad dream can ‘color’ my entire day. Why is that? It’s justContinue reading “March 18, 2021 – Dreams, what do they mean?”

March 6, 2021 – Love and Marriage

So many times I could have thrown in the towel. So many times. We met when we were both incredibly young, just 19 and newly ‘out in the world’. Initially, I wasn’t the least bit attracted to him. I always gravitated toward ‘bad boys’ and he was far too nice to fit into that category.Continue reading “March 6, 2021 – Love and Marriage”

February 10, 2021 – Wily Fox

Have you ever considered what key ingredients you would include if you had to write out a recipe for a successful relationship? If I were to do so, the main ingredient would be ‘trust’. I’d also throw in common interests, loyalty and mutual respect, but without ‘trust’, the whole thing’s going to fall apart atContinue reading “February 10, 2021 – Wily Fox”

January 23, 2021 – Relationships

I realize I’m treading into some dangerous territory, but I feel compelled to talk about relationships today. There is no getting through this life without them. The moment our body leaves the comfort of our mother’s womb, we are introduced to other people and the opportunity for relationships. Our first relationship is generally with ourContinue reading “January 23, 2021 – Relationships”

January 14, 2021 – Emotional Roller Coaster

I am writing to you today with very little ‘gas in my tank’. In other words, this girl’s running on fumes. It was yet another sleepless night in my household. Between the storm raging outside and the storm raging inside, I could not manage to turn off my mind and actually rest. It’s like aContinue reading “January 14, 2021 – Emotional Roller Coaster”

January 2, 2021 – Honesty is the ‘best’ policy.

Today blew (and not like the wind). I honestly didn’t think anything could top yesterday, but no! I was mistaken. Waking up with dread and knots in my stomach is not a good way to start the day, but that’s how it’s been for at least the last week to week-and-a-half. And what have IContinue reading “January 2, 2021 – Honesty is the ‘best’ policy.”

December 30, 2020 – Diabolical Debbie

As much as I had hoped I would be able to pull out of my slump, I have been unsuccessful. And since I’m feeling negative, what better person to write about than my sister ‘Diabolical Debbie’ (DD for short)? I have resisted writing about her because even thinking about her puts me in a funk,Continue reading “December 30, 2020 – Diabolical Debbie”

December 8, 2020 – Trying to save the world (PART TWO).

Hello again! Back for more? You must be a glutton for punishment!! Anyway, where did I leave off? I think I was almost to the part where I was going to ask everyone to join hands and sing “Kumbaya” but I didn’t quite make it. No, I would never ask you to do that. That’sContinue reading “December 8, 2020 – Trying to save the world (PART TWO).”

December 1, 2020 – Life Themes (Depression)

I have really struggled with what to write about today. I’ve been feeling really down which frustrates me to no end. Sometimes, despite the medicine and exercise and eating right, my arch nemesis ‘depression’ returns on occasion. And fortunately today, even though I’ve managed to fall into the well, I was able to grab ontoContinue reading “December 1, 2020 – Life Themes (Depression)”
