Ouch!

DEAR ABBY: I got divorced a year ago. Before it became final, there were many court appearances. My husband told my mother we were divorcing because I was unfaithful, which is true. What he didn’t say was I felt neglected, abandoned and unwanted, all things he knew because I had discussed them with him andContinue reading “Ouch!”

The continuing saga.

It was actually worse than that. I was playing piano for my mom when my dad and his friend Dani showed up. Dani is a server at the local tavern, and she and my dad hang out all the time. My dad likes her but she has a boyfriend, so they’re just friends. Circumstances beingContinue reading “The continuing saga.”

When naptime is over.

Today was depressing. My sinus headache got worse, so I took four Seroquel (it’s allowed for when I don’t feel well) and two Advil, and then I was able to take a five-hour nap. Right before I fell asleep, one random happy memory after another flashed through my mind. This would be a direct effectContinue reading “When naptime is over.”

It’s like I don’t listen! :o

So, did I listen to my psychic–my friend Ash–when she gave me advice about the future? No. Even though I paid her $25 for the reading, I didn’t listen to her. But I’m getting ahead of myself. What did she say in the reading? Let’s refresh our memories here… I’m sensing mother energy… A needContinue reading “It’s like I don’t listen! :o”

The benefits of moral superiority.

Today’s the second day of a three-day round in my coveted short-story competition. I woke in a great mood, well-rested, but with nothing yet written. No huge deal. Just me and the existential-crisis-triggering blank page. But then I opened my email, and there was a message from my mom. Oh, hell, no. I’d determined toContinue reading “The benefits of moral superiority.”

Random musings about my nasty mother.

I was thinking about it yesterday during my paranoid downward spiral that it’s my mom’s fault I’m paranoid. Well, I know, I mean, how obvious, right? But what I mean is that I can find her at fault in a very specific way. It just had to do with how she was always shoving herContinue reading “Random musings about my nasty mother.”

Random odds and ends from Meg World.

MILD TRIGGER WARNING: UNEXPECTED THREATS OF SUICIDE (NOT ME, I’M FINE) I feel tired today and braindead. I’ve spent the past two days helping my mom get ready to go back to her house in New England, where her boyfriend is waiting to care for her. She called earlier today and asked one of usContinue reading “Random odds and ends from Meg World.”

Winter highs.

This is the greatest winter I’ve ever had. A year ago, I was messed up in the head over Nate. Two years ago, Mother fell down the stairs under suspicious circumstances. Three years ago… heck, even I can’t remember that far back. But winter isn’t always a series of bad circumstances. Basically I can neverContinue reading “Winter highs.”

Colossal waste of money. (Going to a casino would be more fun!)

So, I have gossip. I called Mother today because I wanted to add a bit of drama to my life. She didn’t disappoint. I was trying to tell her about my diet and my writing, but she had one thing on her mind: my evil sister’s upcoming nuptials. Apparently, Mother is heartbroken that my brotherContinue reading “Colossal waste of money. (Going to a casino would be more fun!)”

Meg’s still angry! (And who wouldn’t be?)

I slept late today, until 1:30, and had a hard time surfacing. I kept falling back into dreams. In particular, I dreamt my brother was living in our spare room in the basement, and for whatever reason, I was sleeping in his bed. And he’d catch me and say, “What the hell are you doing,Continue reading “Meg’s still angry! (And who wouldn’t be?)”
