The wrong way of looking at it!

Dear Amy: I am a successful woman in my early 30s. I am currently happy in my life. I have a good job, I have both accomplishments in the past and aspirations for the future, I have a loving husband, I take care of myself and feel cared for in my day-to-day life. But IContinue reading “The wrong way of looking at it!”

A refreshing phone call with Mother.

So I just spoke to my mom on the phone. She was apologetic about how I can’t come along to help her in Maine. She said she’d talked to my dad and decided it would be too stressful for me. She sounded so regretful that I was fully prepared to act relieved for reasons notContinue reading “A refreshing phone call with Mother.”

Oh mylanta!

What have I gotten myself into? My mom, having broken up with her boyfriend, is hellbent on going to Maine to pack up the stuff in her cottage. She’s going to sell the house there and relocate permanently here to  Louisville. (She’s had dual residence for the past several years, spending time here and there.Continue reading “Oh mylanta!”

Annie Lane added some bad commentary!

Dear Annie: I resembled the woman who wrote to say that she was staying married for the sake of her son. My then-husband quit his job shortly after the birth of our fourth son, and it took me seven years to realize that honor, marriage, family and commitment mean partnership — not martyrdom. I workedContinue reading “Annie Lane added some bad commentary!”

I should be on the payroll!

Today has been unpredictable and wild, but in a good way. It started with a recorded message from my psychiatrist, Dr. Phlegm. My dad had called him because my paranoia’s been extreme. Dr. Phlegm said I can take extra Seroquel until I return to my “baseline”. Apparently I have a baseline, whatever that means. ThenContinue reading “I should be on the payroll!”

My story!

I got the go-ahead to share my 100-word microfiction story!! The assignment was to write a story that includes chasing something (however you want to interpret the concept of chasing something) and the word “grow”. It can be in any genre(s). I had one brave guesser (shout-out to Jewish Young Professional!) on my guess-my-genre post,Continue reading “My story!”

The paranoid experience!

Ugh! I’m paranoid. I’ve been thinking as much for a few months now, maybe? I figured I’d blog about it. I also want to get more paranoia meds from Dr. Phlegm. Energetic pollution: when someone else’s energetic field pollutes mine. For example, if someone’s waiting in line behind me at the store. Energetic contamination: it’sContinue reading “The paranoid experience!”

Ugh.

Well, uh oh. Now I’m a weepy mess. What happened earlier was exhausting and confusing. Guys NEVER think I’m sexy. He must’ve been flirting with me to get a good deal on the car. Rationally I’m reminding myself that the car has loads of mechanical issues, all of which he pointed out to me. ButContinue reading “Ugh.”
