Camel Toe Sausage Casing

March 12th, 2012 · 3 Comments · Venting

Apparently I am uncomfortable with any level of positive self esteem in my life. I began the past two weekends feeling pretty good about myself, but quickly rectified that by going swimsuit shopping one Sunday and then shopping for jeans the next. Both were ill conceived outings I will concede, but I have been working […]

Forgiveness

December 9th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Animals on my planet

I grew up with dogs, lots of dogs. First was Max, then Missy, then Lily, Dobbie, JB and Newsboy. Later came Annie, Copper, Cougar and Jenny to name just some. Seriously there were many dogs.

This time of year is filled with contradictions for me. I love the holidays in theory. Each year I decorate and make holiday plans and shop like everyone else, but there is an underlying angst that won’t dissipate.

It isn’t easy being me. It may surprise you; I know it surprises me. I struggle with making connections with other people. I can speak to them, I can have a conversation with them, but I have a hard time connecting. It is part shyness and part isolation as a byproduct of my childhood and […]

The Mortgage Donkeys (or where I call no one an ass)

March 26th, 2009 · 2 Comments · Stuff, Venting

One of the only upsides to the economic tsunami is the fact that mortgage rates are ridiculously low. We decided to take advantage and refinance earlier this year to save ourselves a little money. It all seemed simple enough, but somehow donkeys from Wisconsin got involved and it has been downhill, like a big rolling […]

A Stage Three Alert

January 6th, 2009 · Comments Off · Animals on my planet, Stuff

This weekend Bob and I went to see Marley and Me.  SPOILER ALERT: If you are one of the sixteen people who didn’t read the book, I am going to make reference to the end of the movie (and the book) so stop reading, I guess. The movie was about an hour and a half […]
