Train, Meet Wall…

Last week I was fairly manic, but not in the fun “wheeeeeee! I’m getting a lot done, I’m CREATING, look at this fantastic painting I painted and listen to this amazing symphony I just wrote, and please frequent the 5 new businesses I started in my spare time!” kind of way.  Nope, most of the … Continue reading Train, Meet Wall…

The Voices in my Head

The voices inside my head are being really loud right now: “You’re a BLOGGER...oh my gawwwd, everyone and their brother has a blog, what have you got to say that anyone would want to hear ANYWAY…” Sometimes these voices are so loud I can barely see in front of my face.  It feels like they … Continue reading The Voices in my Head

I Thought I Was a Tree

Hubby called me "fire" the other day, and I was confused because all this time I thought I was a tree. Years ago, my kidlet introduced us to a podcast called "Welcome to Nightvale"..  It was weird and wonderful and we listened to a LOT of it on a road trip through the Olympic Peninsula.  … Continue reading I Thought I Was a Tree

TWITAT #2

This is installment #2 in my so-far weekly series:  “That’s What I Think About That”. Any sentence that starts with a disclaimer like "blah-de-blah, blah, blah, BUT...", is not worth giving your attention, time, or energy.  Some of the worst examples of this type of communication: No offense, but… I don’t want to hurt you, … Continue reading TWITAT #2

Fibromyalgia Turned My Body Into a Big Fat Liar

I have fibromyalgia.  What a stupid name.  It’s bad enough that I decide to have an invisible disease that many people still think is a crock of doo doo, but can’t it at least have a cool name?  Lupus is good - easy to say, sounds kinda cool and “wolfy”. Cancer - simple, to the … Continue reading Fibromyalgia Turned My Body Into a Big Fat Liar

Rowan and the Great Jellyfish Wars

I have had the flu for the last couple of weeks...technically I guess I still have it, but I’m starting to feel better.  Anyway - last week was the worst of it, and at the beginning I thought I’d be fine.  By the middle of the week I was walking around groaning like a poorly … Continue reading Rowan and the Great Jellyfish Wars

I Am Not Fit For Human Consumption

I’m having one of those days when everyone and everything gets on my nerves to such a degree that I can’t trust myself to be rational or even civil.  The cats drive me crazy with their incessant meowing and frucking fuzzy cuteness, all in my face and making me feel like I can’t breathe. My … Continue reading I Am Not Fit For Human Consumption

Can We Really Trust Our Emotions?

Right now, there are no decisions to be made - I’m just feeling feelings that need to be felt.  I always think I’m supposed to DO something about it, when I am lost IN my feelings.  Actually, I guess I usually feel like that when I'm talking with friends and family about their feelings, too … Continue reading Can We Really Trust Our Emotions?

Happiness Can Suck It

Damn it.  I’m trying too frigging hard again - trying to write about something people will care about, trying to make it clever, trying to make it funny, trying to make it deliver something valuable.   Just TRYING, which means I’m failing, because trying is a stupid word anyway. “Do or not do. There is no … Continue reading Happiness Can Suck It
