When the going gets tough…

So, I hit a wall. (Don’t worry. It was a metaphorical wall.) I decided last night to go ahead and not expect myself to use the treadmill on both Sunday and Wednesday evenings. That way, I can use those times to take twice-weekly showers, and I’ll still be burning 300 calories 12 times a week,Continue reading “When the going gets tough…”

I’m one of those kind, angry people. (Just run.)

Dear Annie: My mother separated from my father when I was 3. She left my father, who never came looking for us. She later married a wonderful man who loves me more than anything.

My dad likes her but she has a boyfriend, so they’re just friends. Circumstances beingContinue reading “The continuing saga.”

The problem is that, having not seen her since much earlier this year, I “forgot” how odious she can be. AndContinue reading “Like a mother.”

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”
