It is the BEST feeling when I find a Doom Box that is full of stuff that I KNEW I had, but had been unable to locate for the last couple months! I now will be able to finish several small projects this weekend!!! In other news, I am officially old enough that I am … Continue reading Shock and Awe.
Sometimes it seems like I'm never going to be done. I get one area clean and awesome and then realize I have another couple boxes of crap to go thru. I have more empathy than ever for the people on Hoarders cuz this shizz is HARD. But the truth is that all that crap was … Continue reading The Continuing Purge.
I deleted my Auntie from my Favorites list. It’s been three years, she’s not Jesus, she’s not coming back. And yet I immediately burst into straight up ugly sobbing. I hate grieving. And I’m TIRED of it. It never ends. It gets moderately easier, but it ALWAYS hurts.
We all have teachable moments. I consider them to be moments in my life where I instantly knew whatever I'd done was wrong, but the words were out of my mouth and there was no taking them back.

It finally happened. My mouth got me thrown in the facebook slammer. I have no regrets, it was a GREAT comment. I'd tell you what it was, but I don't want my account locked indefinitely! Sometimes it takes something small for big change--and since I couldn't scroll and comment, I decided to take down Christmas. … Continue reading Me and my dirty mouth.
There are so many things I could name this, I’m overwhelmed. The truth is that as I get older, my ADHD and anxiety are morphing. And the depression—please let’s not forget that fun one!
