Offended, eh?

I’ve been pondering the whole “offended” thing a lot lately. It used to be my stance that people should just be able to say and do pretty much whatever they want and fuck you if  you’re offended. Then I got older and gentler and I decided that we should probably care more about what we […]

2013 Time Capsule of Sorts

Another year with very little written on this blog. (Which is 8 years old now. EIGHT! I was still in my thirties when I started this thing.) Sometimes I feel that I should give it up, just not renew the domain and the hosting when that time comes. And then I realize that so very […]

So I was talking to my friend Laurel when she wasn’t actually around…

…and I had an epiphany. A long time ago, I used to say stuff that, while not always nice or agreeable, was passionate and meant something. Many things have changed and I have learned to be nicer, gentler, kinder and less abrasive — most of the time.  But I still have so much to say.  […]

Green is Seven and you No Longer Have to Muffin

Ya know, I totally get that things change.  I actually like change.  I totally dig new technology, love updated software, like to change my hair and revamp my entire wardrobe based on how I feel and who I feel I am today, this month, this year, whatever.  I like the seasons, like variety in my food, […]

Crazy murder lady

You know that person you see on tv or in the movies who, upon hearing the words of someone, suddenly leaps up, loses their mind and begins to try to strangle the person to dead, dead, choking death? That would be me if someone dared say these words in my presence, as Rep. Kevin Cramer […]

Mantra

Sometimes, you just have to remind yourself that so long as you make it though today, you’re doing okay. One. Day. At. A. Time.

It could only happen to me…

So, our Rottweiler jumped off the roof yesterday. Seriously. When we left the house the door on the kennel wasn’t latched all the way, apparently, and he and the Beagle got out.  Our bed is in front of the windows and it seems he heard a dog passing by and decided to jump on the bed, […]

September Already?

Without a doubt I have been absent here far more in the past few years than I have been present. I’m okay with that, most days. Some days, however, I feel a keen sense of loss. I miss just babbling about my day. I miss putting fingers to keys and spitting out whatever may be […]

Checked out?

I’ve decided I’m in a really weird place right now. I look around on Twitter and realize I just don’t have the time or energy to keep up with the fast paced chatter.  Not only that but, also, the bulk of my connections on Twitter are sex toy reviewers and…  meh. It doesn’t seem to […]

Black Coffee

I was talking on Facebook yesterday about changes, how someone can change pretty significantly, and how it can be completely baffling when no one even notices. I mean, most people notice the big changes or the physical changes; new house, new car, lost weight, gained weight, you’re drinking more, you dyed your hair blue. But […]

July has something against me, doesn’t it?

It’s been pretty much 100 degrees here every day for the past week and, guess what? Our refrigerator gave up and said hell no, I’m not doing this anymore. And my landlord decided not to get back to me for 24 hours. And then had me buy one myself and deduct it from next month’s […]

Fifty Shades of Whinging

I first heard of the 50 Shades books from a vanilla friend of mine on Facebook. She must have been really on the ball, must have read them as soon as they came out, because it was way before I started to see anything 50 Shades related on my Twitter feed (which is filled with […]

The Fact is…

I was laying in bed this morning (lying? whatever), looking out the window at my bike, watching the rain, and I realized… A lot of people talk about the thrill of the ride. And I get that.  It is thrilling, zipping along, the wind in your face, feeling at one with everything around you — […]

Random babble with a sprinkle of photos

Happy 4th of July! Hope everyone is doing something fun. (I know it’s trendy right now to be all “zomg, Independence Day is not about fun it’s about celebrating our freedom!” — and I’m all for being grateful that we have the freedoms we do and glad our forefathers fought to give us independence as […]

Fuck you, Week.

I? Am really not having a good day.  In fact, it’s been a pretty crappy week.  We’ve had almost nothing but rain and ridiculous humidity, I haven’t put my contacts in for days and have a follow up tomorrow so I’m totally not going to be adjusted to them, the probiotics I’m taking give me […]

Sleepy Sunday

I slept until 2 PM today. This is NOT the way to “get things done”. Thank gods it’s a Sunday. It is Sunday, right? My sense of what day it is is all fouled up lately.  So is my sleep schedule.  Seems like not having to get up early every day has thrown me into […]

Hello, June!

I’m not entirely sure I believe it’s June… On one hand, it seems like it rushed up all fast and eager, one minute it’s February and all of a sudden it’s summer.  On the other hand, though, the weather has been so ridiculous all over that it kind of seems like it might never be […]

B is for…

Playing along with Fat Mum Slim‘s June photo a day challenge. Don’t worry, I won’t post them all here — but if you follow me elsewhere, you’re sure to be inundated. :D This one was taken on the Hank Aaron Trail on a cloudy day while walking the dogs. B is obviously for Bridges.

One Foot in Front of the Other

So working from home the past four years — on top of untreated thyroid problems and perimenopause — has kind of kicked my previously chubby-but-fairly-fit ass.  I’ve gone from thick to fat. The worst thing is having watched it happen.  I was present for every step, watching the me in pictures (cuz you never really see […]

So it is over….

…and this is what I did with my day. I took pictures of my dogs, my iced coffee, my self, Taylor’s bike,weeds,rocks,broken statues. I also removed most of my Skype list and reconnected with some on my twitter list. It was a good day. Lets hope more of them are.

Clear as mud

I  have a million things to do but, instead, I’m sitting here listening to a mix of Lauren Hill and Amy Winehouse on Spotify and taking pictures of my coffee and nails. (The coffee is dunkin donuts strawberry shortcake, which is surprisingly good with some sugar, especially iced. The nail polish is cheap wet and […]

Amused

I caught up on blogs today.  Blog reading, that is.  For the most part, for the past few months, I’ve only had a chance to skim my favorites — so I was excited to be able to sit down today and peruse all the blogs at my leisure. I noticed some things immediately: 1. Once […]

An Indigo Sort of Blue

I’m not prone to depression. Sure, there are times when I get down, times when I get stressed. I have seasons that are better than others. Right now? I feel like I’ve been down for a long, long time. It’s not a “life is bad” sort of down.  Life is good, really.  I have so […]

A Rare Tizzy

But last night, I was reading an article on CNN, and I got flipping ANGRY. Like Hulk Smash angry. Like I grew and started to turn green and was about to smash people but then I realized the people I was mad at weren’t anywhere near me and, damn, I’d better write about it.
