I was getting ready to finish the blog post I started last night and it just hit me. Out of nowhere, like a ninja, grief attacked. I was going to write about politics, so maybe it’s not so bad I was derailed… but a photo of Natalie stopped me. Since the expo ended on theContinue reading “The Beginning of the End?”

Actually, I Need a Break
I think. I am struggling with grief and am going to take heart the advice I was given very early on about not pushing myself. Taking it easy. Before, I didn’t want to stop, couldn’t stop… now I’m finding it difficult to make sense of anything. So, I will plan to blog on Wednesdays andContinue reading “Actually, I Need a Break”
Late & cheating! I’m not quite done with my blog post, yet I find myself falling asleep quickly and repeatedly… Guess I’m trying to say, I need more time! Will post before Monday is through. Thanks for your patience! Hugs!
I should be writing, I mean real writing. I mean, writing or working on a piece to be critiqued and/or sent out to various publications. What happened? I needed a break and … the internet. So, I’m clicking around, trying desperately to avoid anything related to politics and I see Pixar has made a newContinue reading “Borrowed Time”
End the Epidemic Expo- Recap
Oh shiitake mushrooms… (My way of saying I messed up on Sunday and I’m sorry, see how much shorter it can be?) I started this blog six months ago and have written faithfully, twice a week. I did it when Noah died. On Mother’s Day. Right after Natalie died. What could have possibly kept meContinue reading “End the Epidemic Expo- Recap”
Once Upon An Alcoholic
Originally posted on saneteachers:
On October 5, God willing, I will have been sober for 31 years. That’s just about half of my lifetime. And what a journey it has been. People get sober for various reasons. I remember going to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting and standing near an open window sipping a cup of…
Do You Hear Me Now?
I read a story today that… unfortunately, I believed. The title was “Plane Crew Nearly Lets Passenger Die Because They Couldn’t Believe A Black Woman Was A Doctor”. You can read the full article here. The just of it is she was discriminated against because she didn’t look like a doctor. The flight attendants wereContinue reading “Do You Hear Me Now?”
Shit That Pisses Me Off
Please excuse the vulgarity so early in the post, I’m not even watching the debates and they are having an effect on me! Grrr. What I meant to say, kinda, is the things that frustrate me… You know how YOU can lovingly bash yourself, your family, spouse or bff but if anyone else does it,Continue reading “Shit That Pisses Me Off”
This Will Be My Last Post…
Breathe. This will be my last post, written as a 38 year old. Saturday is my birthday. Last year at this time, I had a psychic reading done. It was an emotional experience and I recall her telling me that my New Year’s Day should be celebrated on my birthday day. It is the beginningContinue reading “This Will Be My Last Post…”
What Can I Say?
I’ve been thinking about today’s blog on and off, all day. What should I write about? What do I have to say? What can I offer? It doesn’t feel like much… In terms of writing I mean. I feel panic a lot of the day. A pressure in my chest about what’s left to doContinue reading “What Can I Say?”
