Sigh.  I saw this cartoon YEARS ago and it's stuck with me ever since. It sums up my thoughts on how most therapy should work. Well, maybe not exactly, but close enough. I mean, I spent time in therapy - I went in with two stipulations. Number one, no drugs. I was self-medicating enough as … Continue reading Interlude.

Things I Left in 2014

Used to be a bit of a tradition amongst my friends and I that come new year's eve, we'd do a burning. All the things, people, situations and such we wanted to leave in the old year would be written down on a piece of paper then burned at the stroke of midnight, thus ushering … Continue reading Things I Left in 2014

And the Winner Is…

NaNo-ites (NaNo-vians?) all over the world sent up a collective cheer as the refreshed NaNoWriMo site went live a few days ago. Since then, the interwebs has been a flutter with posts, status updates, tweets and such as writers took to updating their NaNo profiles.  I wasn't sure which novel I was going to attack … Continue reading And the Winner Is…

You’ve got to start somewhere.

So, I got up at four Friday morning and did day 3 of the 90 Days of Action work out plan from the Neily Rey site.  I don't sleep but more than five maybe six hours at a stretch on a good day, so it's nothing for me to be awake at two or three in the … Continue reading You’ve got to start somewhere.

True Love Is Real: Meet The Couple Who Reunited After 62 Years Apart

There’s still love in the world. It’s never too late to have one of you own. So looking forward to being able to share my story :-). Thank you to blogger James Michael Sama for posting this.  (click and give his blog a read through, I’m sure you’ll find quite a few posts of interest 🙂 )

So, you think that stories of epic, lifelong romance are reserved for novels or movies? Think again.

This couple, Cynthia and Howard, first met over 60 years ago. Today, after all that time apart, they sit side by side on Martha’s Vineyard as husband and wife. The course of events that brought them together again is not only the very definition of true love, but it is an inspiration to all of us that men who are loving and romantic to their very core are still out there, and so are the women who appreciate them. Cynthia was used to having groups of men tease her when she was younger. The one man who actually held her attention? Howard, the gentleman.

Proof that the concepts we discuss on this website, while rare and difficult to find in our generation, are still very real in the world we live in.

Howard and…

Bye-bye Belly.

Chest: 38",  Waist: 38",  Hips: "45",  thighs: 27" each. I have no idea what my weight is but it matters very little to this equation because with any kind of exercise, fat will be replaced by muscle which weighs more than fat so even though my over all weight will drop a bit, it won't … Continue reading Bye-bye Belly.

Going back to my Happy Place

Whew.  I have just about had it with the human race - AGAIN.  We don't seem to learn that hate, in all its various forms, and however ridiculously justified in people's minds, is NOT conducive to our continuation as a species. I'm not about to suggest we join hands, do the "kumbaya" deal and all, … Continue reading Going back to my Happy Place

If I believed in Soul Mates

(a bit of fiction based on a whole lot of reality) My husband is over six feet tall, by about two inches or so. Probably weighs about 5 or six pounds over what he’d like to, but is still physically attractive to me – it’s the broad shoulders and muscled arms that get me every … Continue reading If I believed in Soul Mates

Setbacks aren’t what they used to be

Ah, The Satin Sheet Diva Experience - the act of creation involves a certain amount of destruction.  I was surprised at first, when a bit of destruction showed up in my life.  It came in the opening line on a piece of paper that was no doubt, mass-produced, and not aimed at hurting my feelings … Continue reading Setbacks aren’t what they used to be

Just so you know, I’m not avoiding you, I’m just having a “moment”

January is a “trigger” month.  Instead of a smell, taste or sound, I have whole months which trigger me into subconscious behavior.  My trigger months these days are November, January and February.  Used to be that they’d come and I wasn't consciously aware of how altered my behavior was; I’d be going along thinking I … Continue reading Just so you know, I’m not avoiding you, I’m just having a “moment”
