Recycling people?

Dear Amy: I recently reconnected with a man I was engaged to, many years ago. We have not gotten together in person because we live several hours away from one another and are both in our 70s. The problem is that he blames me for a breakup that happened 50 years ago! (His perception isContinue reading “Recycling people?”

Meg’s mother returns!

My mother. I think that says it. She looks harmless, right? I took her to the drugstore to get her coronavirus booster vaccine. I’d made an online appointment at her local drugstore. But when we got there, they claimed that they didn’t have the Pfizer booster, and my mom had gotten the Pfizer vaccine andContinue reading “Meg’s mother returns!”

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.

Bring your best shot, buddy!

Oh, geez. I’ve been hard at work on my memoir today, editing a scene that’s trigger-worthy. And then it happened: I got an email from Mart. I blogged about him recently if you recall: he’s Mr. Wrong from four years ago. And I knew it was coming! I knew I hadn’t heard the last ofContinue reading “Bring your best shot, buddy!”

Doing it the hard way. Again.

I went over to help my mom today, and she paid me $14,000. Well, technically, she offered to buy me my sister’s old car at that price (and apparently my sister has had equal or higher offers). I told her not to drop that kind of coin on a car, and that I’m morally opposedContinue reading “Doing it the hard way. Again.”

The unicorn killer.

TRIGGER WARNING: Suicidality and calling the crisis line.  So, my life has fallen apart. What else is new? I have an enemy from the NYC Midnight forum. Her name’s Taylor. She’s a prissy bitch. Last October, she was pivotal in causing things to go awry on the forum because she’s a bully and a “meanContinue reading “The unicorn killer.”

A fine serving of hysteria for breakfast.

It’s been a terrible day. It started with an email from the DMV reminding me of the appointment I made to take Mother to get her real ID next week. The real ID is going to become a requirement for national travel here in the US. A regular driver’s license won’t cut it anymore, butContinue reading “A fine serving of hysteria for breakfast.”
