Nerves Everywhere!

My son has been a tad anxious lately.  There are a lot of things going on in his world: his dad is being bipolar, school started the other day, which includes his first year of a Zero-Hour class, he’s adjusting to the idea of moving in less than a year, he recently met my guy, and …

Adjustments

I am a creature of habit.  My children have told me that I’m completely predictable (something I used to try to deny, but have since given up).  During my morning routine, if one of my tasks get out of order, my entire morning gets all out of whack.  I have exactly the same thing for …

Summer Fling

I’ve had a number of summer flings in my life.  It’s the perfect time to have a short-term relationship.  Clothes cover less.  Who isn’t more attracted to someone when they’re half-naked, right?  Plus, the lighter the clothes, the more free and easy we feel.  There are more light-hearted activities to do during the summer – BBQs, swimming at the lake, …

Home

We’ve heard it said that home is where the heart is.  I’ve always believed that to be true and have tried to make the houses in which I live a true home.  I try to make my home a haven for anyone who enters it.  I have blankets for cuddling everywhere, I keep fragrant plug-ins …

Take a Stand

  This morning, I saw a rant which really got under my skin.  It was written by a person who was born female but identifies himself as a man.  He was welcomed into a group of women where the only stipulation for membership is that you’ve had at least one menstrual cycle.  He did, so …

Song

When I was a teenager, I had a favorite song.  Actually, it’s still my favorite song to this day.  It is a male singer, professing his love and all of the deeds he would do for her.  It was incredibly loving and romantic.  When I was younger, I knew that if a man ever dedicated …

Redial

I’m an executive assistant secretary.  That means it’s my job to sit at my desk and answer the phone any time it even thinks about ringing.  Needless to say, when I get home and the phone rings, I just laugh at it.  I’m not answering that thing!  My son hates an unanswered phone, so he’s always …

Waaaaah!

Dude!  I’m such a whiner!  “Oh, woe is me!  I can’t spend every waking moment with my guy!  What will I ever do?!”  Commence gnashing of teeth and pulling of hair. Seriously?  I was kinda knocked back into place with a resounding smack. My boss was fairly cranky today.  I sorta noticed it, but it …

Challenged

Yesterday, my son sent me my first ice bucket challenge.  While I’m glad my son is kinda involved with fund raising, I don’t like this whole thing. First off, I don’t know anything about ALS, therefore, I don’t care about it.  I’m sure it’s a devastating disease, but it hasn’t directly impacted my life.  Why …

Let Him IN!!!

I had a really odd dream last night.  It was about marrying my guy.  I’ve never dreamed of marrying a man before, so it was really weird when I awoke from it.  It was good, but it was unusual. In my dream, I had some quiet time before the ceremony was to start, so I …
