$2.49

Mr. C and I took the puppies to the ocean just recently.  We had a great time.  Well, at least I did.  Mr. C was a little distracted and things didn’t go as he had planned, so he didn’t enjoy it as much as he’d wanted to, but I had a great time. You know …

Limbo

One of the things I hate most in the world is not knowing.  I would so much rather have bad news than to sit around, wondering.  It really doesn’t matter what it is – I detest being in limbo. Unless it’s a surprise.  I love surprises, so if I can avoid finding out my surprise, …

Crazy Lady

I’ve heard men say that every woman has some crazy in her.  According to this video, the crazy to sexy ratio is something which needs to be taken into account. I have my own thoughts on this.  I think the problem is not us, but those around us. Take my mother.  She is one of …

Arguing with Myself

My brain is never quiet.  I’ve heard that there are some people who can stop thinking, but I am incapable of doing that.  I’ve tried picturing a blank, white page, but I always end up filling it with words. Even while I’m falling asleep, there are words going through my mind.  On the days when …

The Girl of No Import

There once was a young woman who didn’t matter.  At all.  To anyone. Being the middle child, she had no significance in the family.  Her older brother was the only boy – the sole-surviving-son.  Her younger sister was the baby – the adored one.  Which left no place of importance for the young woman.  Her …

Self-Worth

I saw something today which brought back a lot of memories. It is so easy to base our self-worth on what others think of us.  We’re trained to do it from birth.  As toddlers, when we do something which amuses our parents or makes them proud, they reward us with a hug, a cheer, or …

Gotta Peeeeee!

I wrote this piece a couple of years ago in an attempt to be funny.  I love reading stories where you actually laugh out loud.  I’ve been working on my written humor, but I have no idea how it comes across.  I’d love any suggestions you have to offer.  Thanks! Friday night, I had a …

Peach Iced Tea

Yesterday, I made myself some peach iced tea.  And I realized – I really hate religion. Wait – just go with me on this, ‘kay? I was raised Mormon.  One of the things which they’re forbidden to do is drink hot beverages.  But… not exactly.  The thing they don’t like about “hot drinks” is the …

To Unfriend or Not to Unfriend

I’m a people pleaser.  A woman I greatly admired when I was a teenager once told me that the definition of a “lady” is one who makes those around her more comfortable.  I thought that was beautiful and I have endeavored to embody that.  The downside of that is that I have a really hard …

Please, Please Be Careful!

The other day, I blogged my hints and tips about online dating.  I think I missed one very important one, simply because it never really has been a part of my world.  However, this morning, it has become a local reality. A woman from the city in which my mother lives went on a date …
