Growing up with my mother was a walking contradiction. She preached for equality, women’s rights, fought in the 1960’s for black rights, was supportive and kind to her friends with gay children when others weren’t. The list of liberal ideas and philosophies is endless…. until it came to our home and our family. It’s all fine on the outside, but don’t bring it home. She … Continue reading Liberal in a family of Consevatives
I’ve been quiet for a multitude of reasons. Most recently being deathly ill. If you’ve been reading my blog a while, you know that I get horrific sinus infections and bronchitis. Another hit me. This is one of the worst ever. I’d wrapped up a round of Prednisone and thought I was on the mend until the worst cough of my life took hold Saturday. … Continue reading Breathing….
I’m sitting in Daddy’s chair chatting with Him on/off throughout the night. We didn’t see each other much today. Honestly, hardly at all. Tuesdays are always like that, but this one seems more pronounced for some reason. The dogs are wrapped around each other in my usual spot on the sofa. All is quiet except for the hum of the fridge and the clicking of … Continue reading Deep Thoughts at 2:30 am
1. What is something new you’ve done because you are under coronavirus self-quarantine? Honestly? Only one thing. I’ve started watching the news a couple times a week. 2. What three habits have improved your life? Cleaning house daily so it’s not a huge, overwhelming task. Building “me time” into every day. Creating a healthy relationship with food. 3. What really makes you angry? Anger isn’t … Continue reading T.M.I. Tuesday
One of the first things that connected Daddy and i was our deeply, dark, sarcastic sense of humor. i haven’t found many people in life who are quite as dark as i am. The two of us bat darkness back and forth until we’re doubled over in pain laughing. When the hard tides of emotions come we listen, talk it out and then inevitably one … Continue reading Dark Humor Ho!!!
FFS people, if you actually think that the christian god has struck the world with the corona virus to shut down sports, movie theaters and other things to bring people back to faith…. and prayer will make this god restore the world YOU”RE INSANE and need to keep your fucking mouth shut!!! This is a dangerous line of thinking and spouting this crap puts lives … Continue reading Religious Rant
Honestly, my daily life isn’t all that different. i’m a housewife and my personal routine isn’t all that different. Why am i struggling then? This fucking asthma flare just isn’t getting better. i’m half way through the prednisone taper and i’m at that homicidal point of everything being too much. Don’t breathe! Don’t walk by my house! Keep your fucking kids QUIET! Stay in your … Continue reading Struggling Today
Daddy falls into the category of mandatory workers here in California. i always had those jobs, too. It never occurred to me that hotels would have to stay open in the midst of crisis. To me, hotels are for travel and fun. NO ONE should be traveling these days. Alas, my thinking is wrong. 2 hours and counting until Daddy heads back out into this … Continue reading Mandatory Workers
