“The fact that so many people today are depressed…”

"...is a sign that something's WRONG"  (emphasis is mine).  Quote from Marianne Williamson on an old episode of Marie Forlio TV. I'm trying y'all, I really am...and this showed up. Thank you Universe, Goddess, God, Buddha, the Ancestors, et. al.


When a good idea takes a turn for the dark side... I hadn't thought too hard about it because I didn't want to be afraid for my kid but damnit if the Humans didn't go and sneak something in.  There's a reason I don't watch the news, don't have a Facebook or Twitter account and … Continue reading HUMANS!!!


Definition (as it appears in my life right now): find a new place to live (pay app fees, deposit, 1st month's rent) fix up the normal wear and tear on the old place so as to hopefully get some of my deposit back pack find a storage unit / move non-essentials to storage unit to … Continue reading Overwhelm

Random Bits & Pieces, again

July Camp NaNo I was off to a pretty decent start - got a few words or so ahead of the game then didn't do a lick of writing these past two (or is it 3?) days. Sigh. So much going on right now (as you'll see below) that I'm living in "overwhelmed" mode. I … Continue reading Random Bits & Pieces, again

I've got a list of activities I'm going to shoot for enjoying in the next 12 months, all culminating in the biggest birthday celebration I've had to date. Activities appear in no set order; those with specific dates are in bold: … Continue reading Random Bits & Pieces

Not how one wishes to be awakened from a semi-doze.  Not under any circumstances. Yet there I was, having just realized I was awake (damned, weird, sleep patterns) when my daughter opens my door and says, "I don't want to disturb you but I was wondering if you know how to stop the blood from … Continue reading How do you stop the bleeding?

In lieu of all this "challenging" going on, I am looking at some key … Continue reading Accountability

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.
