Prince Albert in a can!

Guess what? I’ve created a new diet for myself. I’m calling it the canned foods diet. I guess it’s rather self-explanatory. I’m not wanting to only eat canned foods. Technically, I don’t care what I eat if it’s healthy. But I’ve realized that canned foods are affordable, healthy (I’m trying to get BPA-free cans), andContinue reading “Prince Albert in a can!”

Be still my heart! No, really, slow down!

So I finally broke down and sought out medical care today when I took my resting heartbeat once again, and it was 100. Same old, same old. I figured that can’t be healthy. I haven’t been able to do my treadmill routine ever since I was vaccinated twelve days ago, and nothing has improved. IContinue reading “Be still my heart! No, really, slow down!”

My father, my hero!

So, my car broke down at the pet store that’s about five miles from home in St. Matthews. It had been making funny noises, and I had a bad feeling. After I put a heavy bag of dog food and another heavy bag of kitty litter in the car, I couldn’t get Carlene to start.Continue reading “My father, my hero!”

Trading in secrets.

Dear Amy: My adult sons are so estranged from my ex-husband that neither invited him to their weddings. While I still have difficult feelings toward my ex, I try to have some level of civil interaction with him. He often asks for updates as to what our sons are up to and how they areContinue reading “Trading in secrets.”

Oh, Annie Lane! Give it up and quit while you’re ahead.

Dear Annie: This is in response to “Regretful Mom,” who says she was a neglectful mother and her adult children cut her out of their lives. Depression is a very serious problem, but can be overcome with self-reflection and a determination that life can be more joyful and happy. Brain chemistry can be changed withContinue reading “Oh, Annie Lane! Give it up and quit while you’re ahead.”

I’m a genie in a bottle!

Darn it all! It’s been eight days since I got the vaccine, and I still can’t do my treadmill routine anymore. I went back and tried, and I got lightheaded. My pulse skyrocketed, so I turned down the speed of the treadmill from 3.2 mph to 2.5 mph (while maintaining the 4° incline). That gotContinue reading “I’m a genie in a bottle!”

Regretful experiences!

DEAR MISS MANNERS: I am a 22-year-old college student. To avoid having student loans, I work hard and don’t have a lot of funds left over after paying for tuition. Thus, my wardrobe is not exactly high-end. My clothes are always clean and neat, but admittedly my winter coat is showing a lot of wearContinue reading “Regretful experiences!”

Set down the keys to the truck and walk away slowly.

I’ve been studying my anger issues from the perspective of power struggles. The concept of power struggles seems to apply to maybe… hmm… 85% of my outbursts. I watched a helpful YouTube video about power struggles, and it made some good points. It got me to thinking that we can’t control the other person. WhatContinue reading “Set down the keys to the truck and walk away slowly.”

Angry about anger!

Help! I’m angry about anger. Ugh. I’m trying to reason through how to be less reactive and volatile. I’ve been flipping through my anger books today, and only one thing jumped out at me: go back to when you were angry and figure out what you should’ve done differently. It’s a tricky issue. So, we’veContinue reading “Angry about anger!”

I’ve manifested!

Well, you all are not going to believe this, but… let me back up. My good friend Ashley recently wrote a post about how manifestation is pseudo science and doesn’t exist, I guess meaning that we can’t find what we need by chance. She used the example of a purple-people eater, which I’m still hopingContinue reading “I’ve manifested!”
