Home

A friend of mine (who is rather flighty) recently commented on Facebook that it’s time for her to go home.  The only problem is, she doesn’t know where home is. I blogged a while back about where home is for me.  That has changed through the years, as I’ve changed. When I was little, “home” …

His Eyes

My guys has stunning eyes.  They are big and a soft green color.  The left one has a tiny black dot near the bottom which is uniquely him.  I love the tiny black dot. Last weekend, I was at his house.  In his living room, he has a large mirror over the couch. Now, as a …

Extremists

I have a problem with zealots.  I’ve said that for years.  It’s funny ’cause I think I kinda was one when I was a kid, but now I see how being a zealot can hurt the world instead of healing it. This morning, I saw another form of zealot and was reminded if how it …

Two Weeks to Live

I heard of a local story which resonated with me today.  It tells the story of a man who has two weeks to live.  Bucket list, living life to fullest, blah, blah.  One of the items on his bucket list was that he wanted to experience the joys which Christmas brings, especially the lights which …

It’s a Choice

A long time ago, I was taught that I can choose happiness.  If I focus on the good things in my life, forget about the past hurts, and not worry about negative things which have yet to happen, I can be happy.  If I am having a bad day, I was taught that I can …

Sacrifice

A topic came up last night, and I’m struggling with it. I get that we’re supposed to put our children first.  The thing I’m struggling with is, how much of our happiness are we expected to sacrifice?  Do I sacrifice my own happiness for the rest of my life so that my son can be …

Laugh Out Loud

If you have time today, I would highly recommend clicking on each of the links.  Be prepared to laugh. I am a fan of high-brow humor (think “Frasier”) and can’t stand what I call “stupid humor” (think “Scary Movie” and the like).  I adore plays on words and jokes about which you have to think …

I’m Okay

A little bit ago, an old 80s hair band was playing on the radio (we have a weird station playing at work!)  **Rock with me here**  Pour some sugar on me!  C’mon – you know you were singing it.  🙂 It made me think of my guy.  Not for any particular reason, but just ’cause.  …

Deaf

I feel like such a jerk!  I’m fat.  **gasp!!**  What?!  Say it ain’t so!  Yes, it’s true.  I’m fat and I can admit it. My then-husband was sure to tell me often exactly how fat and unattractive I am.  Obviously, his words left scars.  Massive scars which I worry will never heal.  If the man …

Bra

I hate bra shopping.  It’s worse than jeans shopping.  Seriously!  I’d rather wash dishes than go bra shopping! First off, you have to go through the process of bra shopping.  What a painful process!  The first step is admitting that it’s time to look for a new bra.  That means change.  Yuck!  And then you …
