Holiday Traditions

I need to get away from all the political crap out there, so I am going to go get a Christmas tree this weekend. I didn’t get one last year because we were in the middle of a bathroom remodel and it seemed that everywhere in my house was a staging area for the construction. . . . → Read More: Holiday Traditions

More women speak out

One more time, then I am done with this topic. Now more and more women are coming forward. I really want to believe all of them, but I am starting to have my doubts. I wish we could rely on everyone – men and women – to tell the truth about these things, but we . . . → Read More: More women speak out

Why did these women wait so long to tell their stories?

There are a lot of women coming out of the darkness and telling us about how they were abused, assaulted, and harassed. There are a lot of people who are saying that these things happened a long time ago and why didn’t these women come out sooner with these allegations.

Come on people! The reason . . . → Read More: Why did these women wait so long to tell their stories?

Do I want to know, or do I want to be in the dark?

These days I can’t decide if I want to be an informed citizen or I want to be kept in the dark. Of course, I really do want to be informed, but I sometimes have a hard time digesting everything that is going on in our country right now.

I am absolutely flabbergasted at how . . . → Read More: Do I want to know, or do I want to be in the dark?

I am not always the person I want to be

I am not always the person I want to be. I want to be that person who can keep her cool no matter what happens – I am working on it, and I am not there yet. I want to be the person who truly wishes all people the best, regardless of how they have . . . → Read More: I am not always the person I want to be

I strive to be the me I am meant to be

There is so much political crap happening these days – sometimes I just want to ignore it all. And yet, I can’t.

One thing I am learning (or trying to learn) is how to keep my equilibrium through these rough times. I want to continue to strive to be the person I want to be. . . . → Read More: I strive to be the me I am meant to be

Don’t say it if you don’t mean it

Yes, it is a pet peeve of mine. Please don’t say things you have no intention of following through on. Don’t tell me, “We need to get together for coffee and to catch up – I’ll get back to you with a date,” and then disappear for years. I know things happen that make it . . . → Read More: Don’t say it if you don’t mean it

Holding a grudge?

I try to not hold a grudge. However, there ARE some things that have happened to me that I don’t necessarily want to forget, basically in order to protect myself against them happening to me again. I don’t think that means I am holding a grudge – at least in my mind. I think I . . . → Read More: Holding a grudge?

I am waking up

Boy, a week goes by quickly – it is time for a new blog post already!

Due to some personal issues, I have been in a kind of fog for the last couple years. It’s not that I haven’t known what is going on, it’s just that I haven’t really felt like doing a lot . . . → Read More: I am waking up
