Oh, Annie Lane, I feel ya.

Dear Annie: My daughter, “Emily,” has been dating “Ben” for almost two years. Ben is a great guy, aside from one issue that’s been bugging me: He refuses to drive anywhere and instead has my daughter drive him. He says it’s because a few years ago he was in a car accident and has beenContinue reading “Oh, Annie Lane, I feel ya.”

The unintended application of some zooming tips.

Dear Annie: Throughout the pandemic, I’ve noted some things that make for a successful Zoom or FaceTime call. Perhaps these suggestions will be of use to your readers. Look at yourself on your screen. What you see is what others will see. Do not sit with a window or other bright light behind you. YouContinue reading “The unintended application of some zooming tips.”

News from Meg world!

Good news, everyone! I spoke to my mother, and her conflict with her boyfriend, Mark, has been resolved. Whew! It turns out that he got upset when she tried to hang her animal heads on the walls.

Falling asleep now!

I have great news! Well, okay, it’s not like winning-the-lottery great, but it’s pretty great! It’s mid-January, and I haven’t felt remotely triggered by the physical abuse I suffered. It occurred to me that the EMDR I did last summer must’ve helped! Wow. FINALLY!!!! I always get triggered in winter. (Don’t I?) (Yeah, I thinkContinue reading “Falling asleep now!”

Safety, Miss Manners! Safety!

DEAR MISS MANNERS: Our very cute dog, “Wally,” has enjoyed the occasional table scrap on top of her usual dog food dinners. As a result, she has added a few pounds to her otherwise sleek physique. Lately, my wife has been gently chastising her, even calling her “pudgy.” I’m concerned that this is not onlyContinue reading “Safety, Miss Manners! Safety!”

My flight to safety.

So, I ran away from home. This was earlier today. I’m back home now. I went to a sleazy motel and got a room for cheap. I’m poorer now, although I’ll probably bill my dad. His fault. I asked the lady at the desk if the rooms had landlines. She said yes. But my room’sContinue reading “My flight to safety.”

Mesmerizing Meg is on call today!

Dear Mesmerizing Meg: Okay, so a Coach/Trainer asked if he could use my premises for a daylong workshop he was conducting. He further added that I could attend it too. No money was discussed at all. And during the conversations there was no talk about any fee that I would need to remit.  Initially, IContinue reading “Mesmerizing Meg is on call today!”

Mesmerizing Meg tackles logic, harassment, and family trees.

Dear Mesmerizing Meg: I asked my boyfriend for his help putting ear drops into my hurt ear, and I didn’t really expect the response I got. And while I’m a capable of handling a no from someone, generally there’s a reason or an assumption to be made of why the answer is what it is.Continue reading “Mesmerizing Meg tackles logic, harassment, and family trees.”
