Zen Life 

Yesterday I posted about suicide.  It’s impacted me, and just about everyone else on planet earth.   I couldn’t fathom how anyone could do that to their family, particularly if you have kids.  All I knew is that I DIDN’T know.  Having another incident hit close to home, it’s been on my mind this weekContinue reading “Zen Life “

One Cold February

Today is the last day of mid winter break and I found myself awake before 5:00 am.  I am thoroughly enjoying the peaceful house this morning. It’s been a nice, low key break. And the skunk smell is finally gone from our home. Yesterday was particularly nice and productive, yet enjoyable.  I got up, washedContinue reading “One Cold February”

A Very Stinky Week

What was supposed to be a fabulous weekend is turning miserable.  It started on Wednesday. Wednesday was my late mom’s birthday.  I woke up for work and as I got out of bed I looked out into the backyard.  I do this every morning, hoping to catch a glimpse of a deer or coyote.  IContinue reading “A Very Stinky Week”

Just Another Sunday Funday

Superbowl Sunday– woohoo!! This is one of the few days per year that my neighborhood has a party.  Well, mainly one neighbor– but she does invite the entire neighborhood, which includes our half mile long dead end street. I’m not sure if I’ll go to the party.  There is a lot of drinkers and freeContinue reading “Just Another Sunday Funday”

Goal Diggin’

Thursday January 31, 2019 It’s been a long time since I wrote.  I’ll try to catch you up while getting to the point of things.. Florida- This was a fun, yet Toxic, trip that had me wondering what I did to piss off the Universe.  It started out kind of stressful where we flew outContinue reading “Goal Diggin’”

Extraordinary

The first day of the new year always seems to feel fresh and exciting.  SO many promises and hopes, dreams, etc.  A new chapter, the beginning of something novel. I’ve been up since around 5am and it’s been so peaceful and serene around here. I’ve had lots of time to think and reflect. 2018: AContinue reading “Extraordinary”

Little Lost Soul

I have a soft spot for lost cats. When I was around 5 years old, we took a trip up north to my grandparent’s cottage and brought our white cat, Bozo, with us.  When it comes to pets & animal care, my young parents were not the brightest.  Bozo was antsy by the time weContinue reading “Little Lost Soul”

Merry Christmas

I’m feeling a mixed bag of emotions this morning.  I’m really upset with myself because I drank last night. We were celebrating at my dad’s and my sister was drinking wine (as usual).  We brought a bunch of La Croix and Bai drinks and while I considered but then talked myself out of drinking wine,Continue reading “Merry Christmas”

Christmas Eve Eve Morning

Day 15 today!  Feeling good about being sober, but the rest of me might be falling apart. I’m supposed to take my Humira every 7-10 days.  It’s been about 3 weeks since I took it.  I thought I had a Parvo Virus that mimicked RA and that I could not take it and not beContinue reading “Christmas Eve Eve Morning”

Day 8

Today is Monday and day 8 AF. Yesterday ended up being a great day, which I was productive.  I cleaned all the bathrooms and got a severe case of hypoglycemia during.  My BG was like 45, so I stopped to make and drink a shake.  Afterwards, my hands were still shaking and I knew itContinue reading “Day 8”
