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!”

One less star.

When I was in college I was engaged in A Course in Miracles, which is truly miraculous in odd ways, and I wanted to walk away from it for a while and focus on other things. I had a dream that night that I left my mom’s house and went outside. It was a nice summerContinue reading “One less star.”

Ohh, Ask Amy! You went there!

Dear Amy: My best friend suffers from PTSD and other mental health issues, and has been suicidal. This has been a particularly tough year for her, and she pushed away several friends after they hurt her, leaving me as one of her only remaining confidants (she isn’t in touch with her family, for good reason).Continue reading “Ohh, Ask Amy! You went there!”

Spring cleaning!

So, I’m doing some spring cleaning today! I’m rearranging the furniture while cleaning, and the whole place is a mess. It’s taken a toll on me to be doing the treadmill twice a day! Tonight, I’m taking a break from it as my shower night, even though I don’t see myself having the energy toContinue reading “Spring cleaning!”

Killing it! (Or: a very good day.)

That’s what I’m talking about! Heck yes. I went back to the gym this evening and burned 300 more calories at the treadmill. I got a second wind! Who knew that would happen? Go me! It’s been a great day. I got an email stating that there would be no contest results until this timeContinue reading “Killing it! (Or: a very good day.)”

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!”

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.”

False virtue alert! False virtue alert!

Dear Amy: My daughter is toxic. She and her husband live with me, but with my help of a hefty down payment they will soon be moving out. I am looking forward to their absence. I am thinking of changing the locks once they leave. My abrasive daughter tends to get angry and then cutContinue reading “False virtue alert! False virtue alert!”

Updates from my world today!

I wish I had some exciting news to report, but I don’t. My life has been surprisingly hum-drum, and I don’t know what to make of that. I was so bored last night that I went to the gym and did some treadmilling. I’m not sure which direction my life is headed in. I finishedContinue reading “Updates from my world today!”
