Wild times.

So, I have a lot to report here, actually. Let’s see if I can remember all of it… First of all, I didn’t win the 3-day novella event. However, I made the top 10. But keep in mind that only fifteen people total entered. So, that’s the top 2/3, but geez. Then the top fourContinue reading “Wild times.”

Priorities and secrets.

Dear Amy: I have been with my husband for three years. He is White and I am Black. His parents are wonderful to me, and often go out of their way to help us out. They treat me just like their own daughter. Unfortunately, they have a dog, “Danny,” who is “mean,” according to them.Continue reading “Priorities and secrets.”

Size, and where’s the virtue?

DEAR ABBY: I’ve been dealing with some emotional stress for well over a year. I’ve recently found out my wife’s ex was much more well-endowed than I am. I understand that’s not the most important thing, but it is messing with me mentally. One reason is, a long time ago when she was drunk, sheContinue reading “Size, and where’s the virtue?”

Bite me!

Dear Amy: My 28-year-old daughter has been in a relationship for more than a year with a lovely single father, “Randall.” Randall is everything I ever wanted for my kind, intelligent, beautiful daughter. He is thoughtful, polite, intelligent, has a good job, and — most important — is a patient and remarkable parent. I amContinue reading “Bite me!”

I know her! Holy flip.

Dear Amy: I am a middle-aged, happily married woman with a wonderful husband. We have a relationship that others spend their lives trying to find, and we are both extremely grateful for our many blessings. I am not social, and I am not conscious of my appearance. I never wear makeup. I am a jeansContinue reading “I know her! Holy flip.”

The hell of voting.

I voted today. My dad took me to the fairgrounds early in the afternoon. The trip there and back was terrifying. Riding in a car with him driving is like bungee jumping without checking your ropes first. He almost got us killed at what he thought was a four-way stop, but I could tell itContinue reading “The hell of voting.”

Oh, well.

I’m finally and officially writing off the guy I like in Thailand. I don’t know what’s going on inside his head, and I’m through playing guessing games. We’re all adults, but he can’t seem to express his thoughts or feelings to save himself. I don’t mean to sound overly critical, though, because I understand thatContinue reading “Oh, well.”

Ready to take off here!

Okay, so here’s the latest: I’ve reached my word count for my memoir! (Give or take 500 words.) Go me! At this point, I’m inserting stuff that I forgot during the first go-around, and I’m holding off on ending it until later this year. The whole theme of the memoir is physical abuse and triggersContinue reading “Ready to take off here!”

Wow, heartbreak!

Dear Amy: Three years ago, I was diagnosed with bone cancer. I went through 2½ years of chemotherapy and six months of stem cell treatment. I am now deemed to be cancer-free, and I feel great compared to how I felt in those three years. During that time, I was with a woman (for eightContinue reading “Wow, heartbreak!”

Pass the happy pills!

Dear Amy: Almost 20 years ago when my husband and I were just 19 years old, he cheated on me. Twenty years on, I’m still having a hard time trusting him. Will I ever be able to trust him — or will I always feel this way? What can I do to start trusting him?Continue reading “Pass the happy pills!”
