Lizzie’s Closet

I have been struggling for awhile. Writing hasn’t come easy, or at all, dreams have turned to nightmares and I have lost a part of me and I miss her. I want to know what’s normal?? I want to know if it is “normal” to take two full sessions to dump your junk? I want […]

Christmas time is here

When I think about Christmas time, I think about the Peanuts Gang standing around the tree singing Vince Guaraldi’s “Christmas Time is Here”. It makes me feel very nostalgic. As a little girl I loved sitting in my jammies, with wet hair down my back from my bath, watching a little tv with rabbit ears, […]

tHANKS-GIVING

It’s Thanksgiving week. Yep, another Thanksgiving will come and go and I will try to get excited about all of the gratitude that I feel! I gotta admit that the last several months I have not “felt” the gratitude that I really feel. Does that make any sense? I mean that there are a lot […]

This is Hard For Me

What you will find below I started over 2 weeks ago. I am still struggling to find my words, but what happened to me today absolutely shattered me and has made my internal rage fire out of control. Most people are unaware that Mike has had some recent health issues and out of respect for […]

No More MLM Pills

Topics this week have been tough for me to nail down. There are so many options; COVID-19, mask wearing, political opinions, missing children, so much news, both local and national. For instance, are the rumors true that the City of Salina is really broke?? I hear rumor after rumor with little to no information to […]

Tootsie

“Toot toot Tootsie, good-bye! Toot toot Tootsie, don’t cry!”….I think I was 7, but then again, everything happened at 7….pretty sure that’s when I walked into Gram’s house and I heard the console stereo belting out Al Jolson singing Toot Toot Tootsie! The video is kind of amusing! I thought that was the funniest song […]

No Merry Christmas Letter….but Merry Christmas!

Like many of you, part of my Christmas tradition was to create and send the standard Christmas photo card or letter to all of my friends and family but last year was different and this year isn’t looking any more promising. The sad truth is that the older I get, the more I realize that […]

Grumpy … … …

I’m feeling like I don’t want to roll in this world today….or possibly tomorrow and maybe even the next day!! I go through stages where the stimulation of the outside world makes my insides shake like I am standing on the edge of Niagara Falls feeling the earth rumble! I’m there! I wouldn’t say it’s […]

THAT’S ALL FOR TODAY!!

OK!! Kids listen!! This is really how life works! Today, I am the fireman. I have been putting out the fires at work, after a long/short night letting my daughter catch up on some sleep, while I stayed up with my brand new granddaughter, Allie Ann! I got home at almost 2 am and finally […]

Worrying …. It Doesn’t Change A Thing!

The wind is blowing from the southwest this morning and the Fall weather feels more like Winter is right behind. Normally, Mike is the one who gets up and goes out to the garage to feed the dogs, but this week he is gone and I have been up in the dark to feed that […]

Not Sure What to Call This One….

This has been a summer like no other. I have worked more this year than I ever thought my body could possibly take. I sleep away the weekends because I can’t move and I have missed more sunny days because of sleeping the weekend away than I care to remember. I am thankful for the […]

🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my love of the English language and how when I was a kid I would read a Thesaurus just for fun. Somehow in our attempt to “simplify” everything we have created an entire language with emojis and I doubt anyone under the age of 20 knows what a […]

Quick

I require a lot of hugs! I require hand holding, hugs, affection and to feel like I’m still useful. This is what fills my heart and literally fills my tank. My blood pressure goes down, my dopamine level goes up and I feel like I can take a deep breath. I feel like I’ve been […]

Fallout

I’ve been thinking, again. I have been watching and waiting and hoping, again. I have given a lot of thought to the friendships in my life and I have come up with the differences in “friendships of old and friendships of Facebook”. This is a horrible time in our history in my opinion. I have […]

10,950 days

I have been thinking a lot today about the journey I have taken in the last 30 years. Granted, I haven’t taken it alone and for that I am eternally grateful, but man, oh man have their been twists and turns! I was thinking about how we got engaged and married in 6 whirlwind weeks. […]

Today is your day to think

I don’t know if you have noticed or not, but lately my writing has been lax. Not really just lax, but few and far between. This happens to me when I feel completely overwhelmed by life and the sheer amount of topics that are weighing heavily on my mind. There is no doubt that it […]

You do You my Chickens

Warning! This could piss you off. Don’t care. I’m not looking for a fight and I’m not angry with anyone except people who continually make snarky comments toward what I will call, my group of people! I am so overly happy for people who never have to know what it’s like to live inside a […]
