A New Hope

Hiddy Ho good neighbors. So, it would appear I jumped the gun in one challenge, and am a week behind in another. Story of my life, but I'm going to run with it anyway and jump right into my 2nd official Life/Fitness Challenge. I'm sticking with the Star Wars theme because, well.. . (giggle. this … Continue reading A New Hope

Let’s Try This Again.

So, my first four week fitness / life challenge comes to a close this evening. I called it The Force Awakens (yeah, I thought it was cute at the time; definitely proved to be overly optimistic, not to mention wildly out of order). Anyway, about mid-way through, The Empire struck Back and I lost my … Continue reading Let’s Try This Again.

Sweat. WTF

In my youth, the only time I remember sweating in any way, shape or form, was when I was outside, playing with wild abandon, in temperatures that were in the high seventies and above (that's Fahrenheit).  As I got a little older, I'd feel a little moist if I were outside or in a car, when … Continue reading Sweat. WTF

Lost and Forgotten

I have misplaced my CD case with ALL of my Prince CDs. I realized it last night. I have no recollection of seeing it last so of course, have no idea where to look. I've been doing some "getting ready to move" house cleaning.  I have a dismally foreboding feeling in the pit of my stomach … Continue reading Lost and Forgotten

Thoughts on my morning walk.

Anything learned can be un-learned or replaced. What do you gain or lose by changing the way you THINK about something?  What does it hurt for you to stop seeing through hate, selfishness; the things your mother or father did or didn't do to you / for you / with you / because of you … Continue reading Thoughts on my morning walk.

My Great Loves

This struck me awhile back and made me wonder how many people in the world get to say that they were able to find some type of closure with the great loves / mega crushes of their pasts? I was able to do that with four of my five and quite frankly, I find that … Continue reading My Great Loves

I’ve Fallen…But I Will Get Up

All it takes is one moment of reluctance and BAM, off the wagon I go. You see, I didn't want to break into my savings to cover groceries, so I didn't go to the grocery store. My ingredients on hand did not allow for adequate food prep for the entire week so here I sit, … Continue reading I’ve Fallen…But I Will Get Up

You can never go home again.

I'm living that adage as I type. A place I lived for thirty years appears as a stranger after having been gone for ten and despite returning every year since. I expect "progress" and its half-siblings, "gentrification" and "destruction". But the very feel of the place has changed so much that it's as if I'm … Continue reading You can never go home again.

Yup That’s Me…

My older sister.  She was mom's right hand as I was growing up, once the folks separated / divorced. It was drilled into my head that I was supposed to do what my sister told me to do when mom wasn't around. I grew up saying yes to her regardless of what I may have … Continue reading Yup That’s Me…
