You got the best of me Rest of me Tried and true test of me I lied for you Cried for you A piece of me died for you I wasn’t good enough Understood enough I knew I’d withstood enough You took your leave that day Slipped away No words of goodbye to say You […]

A Pink Anniversary

I could have handled the sinuses. It moving to my chest was to be expected.  For me.  Everything moves to my chest.  I have a great chest, after all. But what I woke up to last Tuesday, the day before my 10-year-anniversary, was a bit much. I woke up for my shower at about 6.  […]


Everything I said the other day about standing out in the cold to reserve a pre-K seat, how I was #19 but it was all worth it he got in? Yes. Well. About that. Seems, that nobody bothered to mention the class was for 4-year-olds only… Oh they did go to great lengths to make […]

A Tale of Two Termites

Two, two hundred, two thousand, two million, two billion.  All named Fred.  That’s how no one has been punched in the face.  I name them so I mind their existence a little less. We’ve had a leak in that spot of the basement forever.  There’s also been a known pipe issue right there forever.  So, […]

Giving Thanks

I suppose it’s a month early, but I’m very thankful this week.  Of all I’ve been handed, I’m keeping it in perspective and being thankful I wasn’t handed more than I can handle. I could be cranky that it freakin snowed in October, or I can be thankful that’s all Sandy handed to us. I […]

I Look In The Mirror And All I See

Is sad lonely eyes, staring right back at me. Alright.  So A few weeks back I was thrilled to the moon over a new friend I had found in the mother of my kid’s friend.  I guess I didn’t know she assumed I was Christian.  And the irony in this compared to what I had […]


I haven’t written in a while.  Not any real content really.  And not for lack of things to say, but for lack of words to give the thoughts form. Sadly, this post isn’t to say that I found those words.  This is simply here as a place holder to let the world know I’m alive […]

To AC Or Not To AC

When I worked at the grocery store and the AC went out, no one who had the power to fix or replace really cared.  It’s been over a year and I wouldn’t be surprised if it still isn’t working. Our AC at the bank went out last week.  It died towards the end of the […]

The Game Of Life

House Well, we were in contract.  Papers were to be signed on the 29th.  Keys were to be handed over.  Then the bank that was selling, since it was a foreclosure, made a rather large change to the deal, and we said “hell no” and now there is no house. There was a significant amount […]

30 Days

It would be at this point in my cycle delay that I would be peeing on a stick.  However, I have been very irregular since I got my tubes turned into bacon.  Usually I’m early but, late is just as possible I’d imagine.  I’m weighing the improbability of me getting pregnant with bacon tubes against […]
