A Year of Extremes

Back in 2003, while Matt was suffering through the worst of his depression, I couldn’t help but think that was the worst year of my life. But then 2004 came and Matt and I broke up. Once again, I thought that 2004 might have just trumped 2003 in the record books for worst year. Now […]

It’s a Sunshine Day

There really isn’t much to report. I suppose no news is good news. My brother called me yesterday around 4:30 to tell me that my sister-in-law was re-admitted into the hospital yesterday afternoon. Once again, this means that my niece is in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and my sister-in-law is in the regular building […]

Deep Thoughts, by Jack Handy

Actually, they’re more random thoughts and observations by me. First, the water that flooded 80% of New Orleans was highly contaminated. Tests indicated that the water was at least 10 times worse than what is considered safe for humans. Now they’re pumped out the water..but to where? The pumps make it look like it’s just […]

The Grapes of Wrath

I feel like going back to my blogging roots so today I’m going to write about food. Not necessarily food I’ve been cooking because, well, let’s be honest here, I’m not much of a cook. And going to the hospital after work every day rather limits my desire to cook even more. So today we’re […]

At Least It’s Consistent

Remember how a two weeks ago I said that my weekend started off good but ended up crappy? And then last weekend started off crappy but ended up better? Well, this current weekend started AND ended off pretty shitty. I went to dinner with a friend on Friday night only to come home to phone […]

The Blogger Formerly Known as Snarl

I’m finally getting around to doing the list of sevens that Will tagged me for. I must say before starting that the thought of doing this has put Prince’s song “Seven” in my head for the past three days. That said – here are my responses: 7 Things I want to accomplish before I die: […]

What Difference A Year Makes

This morning I had planned on responding to something Will (of Designerblog fame) had passed on to me, but after my visit with my niece in the hospital yesterday, I had to post about that instead. Will – I promise I’ll blog about my “seven’s” tomorrow! So last night I went to the hospital to […]

Here We Go Again

I’m not sure what it is with people being against gay marriage. If they don’t believe in it, then shouldn’t have one. Otherwise, I say live and let live. Anyway, I’m going to edit a rather long email I received (twice, no less) on Wednesday and paraphrase here (to bad we couldn’t “edit” the bad […]

Catching Up

OH, I feel so loved once again. I hadn’t blogged for just a few days (okay, 5 days) and I’m getting comments and emails from people worrying about me. I do love this community we call blog. Anyway, there really isn’t that much to post. Remember how last weekend I talked about how the weekend […]
