Ugh.

Well, uh oh. Now I’m a weepy mess. What happened earlier was exhausting and confusing. Guys NEVER think I’m sexy. He must’ve been flirting with me to get a good deal on the car. Rationally I’m reminding myself that the car has loads of mechanical issues, all of which he pointed out to me. ButContinue reading “Ugh.”

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.”

Wedding drama!

So, my mom’s sad today. Yesterday was my sister’s wedding. Today is my parents’ pseudo-fiftieth anniversary (they’re long divorced, but they really care about each other, so it seems worthy of celebration). My mom may have forgotten about the anniversary, but we celebrated it informally last week at the Cheesecake Factory with my mom’s boyfriendContinue reading “Wedding drama!”

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!”

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…”

Breathing in Tight Spaces

I was a total mess yesterday. Total meltdown mode, and I couldn’t cope with anything at all. I sobbed for hours, and there was snot and sticky stuff in my mouth. Total mess. I was in a bizarre sort of dissociated haze. Time passed in large increments during which I kept crying and not cryingContinue reading “Breathing in Tight Spaces”

Unloved.

I’m really dragging. Nothing interests me, even though there are so many fun things I could be doing. Well, maybe not at this late hour, but in general. I’ve just quit caring about projects. The house is a mess, and that doesn’t include the dog fur that’s all over the place. I can’t keep upContinue reading “Unloved.”

Dealing with disappointment!

Dear Amy: My beautiful high school senior is having a hard time. When she was in elementary school, she announced that she would be the high school valedictorian. She has kept her vow. She volunteers for many organizations, tutors middle-school students, is an athlete, and is on the mock trial and academic team. Her intenseContinue reading “Dealing with disappointment!”
