Skinny, Yeah.. Not So Much

Here’s the thing about being skinny. I haven’t been for a long time. Not so long that I don’t remember fondly of what it was like, but long enough to forget what clothes sliding effortlessly on, feels like. I never used to think about if I ate this or drank that where it would go.… Continue reading Skinny, Yeah.. Not So Much

These Old Bones

It was time for bed. I felt the sharp, burning pain throughout my back that has been all too familiar for too many years counting, as I tried my best to get into a position that didn’t make me feel like I was being crushed underneath a ton of bricks. Each one excruciatingly more uncomfortable… Continue reading These Old Bones

Computers: The Devil’s Etch-A-Sketch

My new computer is crashing. Yes I know, I spent ten years in IT repairing and building computers and yes I could very well fix mine. But who asked ya?! The thing about being in IT for so long is once you decide to leave the field it is frequently once you’ve reached a point… Continue reading Computers: The Devil’s Etch-A-Sketch

Beauty Comes with a Price

Beauty comes with a price. So I’ve now learned. I have thin lips. That’s right, I said it. When all of the girls were putting on ten pounds of red lipstick and leaving kisses all over the bathroom mirrors in high school, I was applying Carmex to mine and leaving the restroom post haste. My… Continue reading Beauty Comes with a Price

A Weekend to Remember

It all started with a trip to Texas Friday night that felt so much longer than it should have been. For some reason the highway getting there and back, once entering Texas is always a mess of construction. I don’t know if it’s that the construction workers are all too busy watching one guy dig… Continue reading A Weekend to Remember

Being a mother is probably the only job that we feel guilty when talking about. We face the glazed… Continue reading Mother’s Day

Japper Jaws

I have always been connected to words. Though I have pretty much been able to speak my opinions since the day I was born, I have never really been able to vocalize my feelings. Opinions and emotions are two totally separate worlds. My opinions are based on logic, but my emotions are a heart thing.… Continue reading Japper Jaws

What Reflection Do You See?

I saw this beautiful photograph and it made me stop and think. What image is it that we see of ourselves within our reflection? For years I couldn’t see anything, but my pain, my past, my failings. It was a negative cycle. The feeling inside of never being good enough and the perpetuation of that… Continue reading What Reflection Do You See?

Miss Menopause

I have entered into a new phase of my life. One that is as equally exciting as it is a bit horrifying. I remember my Mother going through it when I was a kid and wondering what exactly it meant. Now, I understand. Let me take you a bit back in time. I feel as… Continue reading Miss Menopause
