Happy Anniversary!

It’s amazing how quickly time passes.  It was one year ago that Mr. C and I brought our puppies home (thanks for the reminder, Facebook). It brought back a whole lot of memories – from going to meet Prince the first time, to the drive home, to all of the sleepless nights of the puppy …

Bringing Me Hope

Just because I’m not going to be sharing my fear about Trump with you here doesn’t mean my loved ones don’t hear all about it.  My mother actually said that I need to stop reading things about Trump.  This is why I don’t watch the news – it just bothers me too much. And then …

Dishwasher

Due to unforeseen circumstances, I am now splitting my time between my mother’s house and Mr. C’s house.  It’s not ideal, but it is temporary. The first week or so followed an interesting pattern.  Walk into a house and wash dishes (two loads).  At each house.  It turns out my loved ones REALLY don’t like doing …

Hope/lessness

I feel like I need to apologize for yesterday’s blog.  I had just gotten done watching a video of Michelle Obama on the campaign trail for Hillary Clinton and apparently it really got to me.  Instead of being empowering, as it was meant to be prior to the election, it depressed me. It reminded me …

Not Over Yet

Eight years ago and then four years ago, I knew that after the election, all of the political talk would be greatly reduced after the election.  Since I don’t watch the news, the only news I get is from my Facebook contacts.  The majority of them have basically the same political leanings as I do, …

ACA vs ObamaCare

I watched this online yesterday, and like most of us, I was laughing while being dismayed. But what really got to me was the people who didn’t like “ObamaCare” simply because they don’t like Obama.  How close-minded!  How inane! How exactly like how I’m feeling right now! I’m sitting here, judging these people for blindly …

Anti Anti-Bullying

In researching for another blog, I came across this image: I can’t tell you how incensed I was! So, you’re totally fine with your son beating the crap out of my son because it will prepare him for getting the crap beaten out of him as an adult?  Seriously?  You’re okay with your daughter waging …

Just Itching!

Oh my heavens!  I’m going a tad bit nuts!  There’s a sick craving within me and it won’t let go.  It doesn’t bother me all the time, but every once in a while, when it pops into my head, I want to do something which makes no sense at all just to scratch this itch. …

Unjust

I have heard about prejudice, but in my tiny little world, it doesn’t exist.  And then my eyes are opened to what’s going on outside of my little world.  Each time this happens, my mind has trouble understanding and my heart aches. I recently saw a post on Facebook which clearly showed the racial discrepancy …

Another Countdown

In yesterday’s blog, I commented on the fact that I love Christmas.  I actually love winter, Christmas being a part of it. That doesn’t mean that I don’t love spring.  Or fall.  I don’t love summer – especially hot ones, but I’m fully on board with the other three seasons. Spring is when the world …
