So here it is again, Sunday. Time for Slapstick Sunday but I don’t feel so slapstick-y. I’m sure funny things have happened during the week yet I’m feeling more… sentimental. We took our daughter to get her hair cut today. Four inches fell to the floor in as many seconds. We took her in forContinue reading “Not What I Expected…”

The Photo I Didn’t Take
We drove home a different way than usual today. Road construction forced us to take the scenic route over the faster more efficient way. We passed the golf course, the city park, the fire station and then the street. “There it is mom! Remember?” I remembered. That’s where we walked to in the fall, whenContinue reading “The Photo I Didn’t Take”
I’ve decided to add something to the blog this week. From today on, Sundays will be dedicated to silliness! I want to keep a running list of things that happen during the week that Crack. Me. Up. Individually these moments may not have enough material for their own post but fit in nicely amongst the otherContinue reading “Slapstick Sunday”
To say I was a squeamish child would be a vast understatement. I remember in elementary school doing the finger prick to check our blood type. I passed out. We then visited a hospital, specifically the blood bank, I saw one, two, three and floor. I woke up in a hospital bed. Every time IContinue reading “Blood Money “
I got a rejection email yesterday. The second one this week. I know there are authors who save their rejection letters, pinning them to cork board with pride as evidence they are working, creating and determined but I am not one of those people. While I do see the value chronicling your efforts, I know forContinue reading “Another Rejection”
A Typical Day
*BEEP* *BEEP* *BEEP* Snooze button. “I’ve GOT to change that alarm… in 8 minutes” *BEEP* *BEEP* *BEEP* Snooze button. God damn it. Snore. 8 minutes later, guess what happens? “How am I the ONLY ONE who hears this fucking thing?” Tumbling down the stairs, I can feel something is not right but there is noContinue reading “A Typical Day”
Me & Celebrities: Famous People I’ve Been Compared To
The first time I was ever compared to anyone famous, it was Julia Roberts. Now don’t get all excited, like I did. We were at the Mall of America (see? Already a lapse in my judgement) and my blood sugars crashed. Not like “oh, I’m starting to feel weird(er), I think I might be going low”,Continue reading “Me & Celebrities: Famous People I’ve Been Compared To”
This is MY Voice!
I’m not going to lie, I may lose friends over this. I hate Christina Aguilera. HATE HER. I have been in therapy long enough to know that people are not their actions. We can “love the alcoholic” while we “hate their behavior” but in this case, for me, I hate all of it and here’sContinue reading “This is MY Voice!”
Hello & Welcome!
Have a seat… or take a stand… your choice, I’m not here to tell you what to do… I’m here to tell you what I did! Or said! Or thought. Or wished. Or… you get the idea… Here on this blog I’m going by SpiredOne. Or if you read it another way, SpireDone because WordPressContinue reading “Hello & Welcome!”
