We’re feeling trigger happy!

Do you ever find yourself tracking people from your past, keeping an eye on them online, that sort of thing? Well, I’ve been doing that with Ash, my former friend whom I haven’t heard one word from. I have a stalker facebook account, and I think she knew I was using it, because she deletedContinue reading “We’re feeling trigger happy!”

This one goes out to the dishrags in my life…

Hi guys! Here I am. I’ve been lying low for a few days because I’ve been messing with my sedative. I’m trying to take substantially less in hopes of losing weight. Seroquel is extremely sedationary and has a bad reputation for weight gain. I was taking 300 mg but went down to 100 mg whileContinue reading “This one goes out to the dishrags in my life…”

The ghosts of friends past.

Dear Amy: I really identified with the letter from “Ghosted by a Friend,” in fact, I thought that letter could be about me, because I’m the one who does this to others. I can cut people out of my life, (work or personal), in a heartbeat. It’s a learned behavior from my parents. My siblingContinue reading “The ghosts of friends past.”

Random Meg-world goings-on!

Well, I have no updates about my friend, Ash; just some conjecture and commentary. I’m sort of confused and stumped by her disappearance. A lot of my other friends (shout out!) have been supportive, which is great, but it sort of makes me feel afraid. It’s not fun to stare at the harsh truth thatContinue reading “Random Meg-world goings-on!”

As long as I’m awake

Bad news. My psychic friend, Ash, seems to be having some issues. You all know that I’m a bit slow to recognize that something’s wrong. I’m a bit dense at times, and I sort of blame myself for that. I often have facebook open all day, because today for example, I’ve been working on myContinue reading “As long as I’m awake”

Opinions versus advice?

Dear Amy: Can you help me to understand the boundaries of offering advice? Coronavirus-related circumstances mean my 35-year-old daughter must make an employment decision involving relocation. From experience, I have insights into her potential relocation choices that she does not have. What I know on this topic could affect her ultimate happiness. She hasn’t askedContinue reading “Opinions versus advice?”

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!”

Sibling discord and the friends versus acquaintances issue.

Dear Amy: So many of the questions to your column involve family members — often siblings — who are locked into their own drama or estranged from each other. As you’ve noted, often these estrangements carry on through generations. My family has sibling drama, too. When my kids were small, my husband and I startedContinue reading “Sibling discord and the friends versus acquaintances issue.”

Interesting letter in Dear Abby today!

DEAR ABBY: I have recently found out that someone I thought was a good friend is the person who snitched and got my daughter in serious trouble at school. Our daughters attended the same preschool, middle school and high school. Although they were friends, the friendship was more between us moms. Before middle school graduation,Continue reading “Interesting letter in Dear Abby today!”

Well…

I got a Christmas card today, and it made me sad. It was from someone who I’m not really friends with anymore. For those of you who’ll know who I’m referring to, she’s a successful gameshow contestant. Our friendship fell apart over idiotic things, but essentially, she’s too cerebral and I’m too emotional. She’s aContinue reading “Well…”
