Now that I am getting older (or at least I feel old even though people tell me I’m not yet old) I have been thinking about what I’d like to leave the world when I go. Well I don’t know. I’ve liv...

Rain Rain Go Away in Day in the Life

I don’t like it when other people complain all the time so I try not to, myself. But there comes a point when pain is undeniable and becomes such a hindrance to daily life and peace of mind that ...

Not My Kids in Day in the Life

This is probably opening a whole big can of worms and I’m not trying to start a debate. First of all I want to say that I am NOT anti-vaccination. If your child is healthy enough and not allergic...

Winter Dance in Verse

I love how the snowflakes Fall slowly Taking the time to be graceful Spinning and gliding as they’re falling Dreamily pirouetting And if you listen closely You can amost hear them humming The ...

They Left the Open Road in Verse

They left the open road For one little lane of the city A front yard littered with tulips Hedge and hedge funds and early mornings That tasted like burnt toast and kisses Rushed in the steam of...

When the civilization is studied 100 years later, people will say this was the beginning of the end. This is when the balance shifted, and the schools all began to shut down. But now it is spri...

Father in Past Tense

I rarely mention him, but yes he is still around and somewhat in my life. You may have noticed one of my resolutions this year is to visit with him. This is huge. I haven’t seen him in person sin...

Resolutions in Day in the Life

I don’t like to make promises I can’t keep, so I’m going to keep this simple. Eat more vegetables and fruits. I’m not a huge fan of fruit, but sometimes you gotta do what’s right even if it fee...

2018 Reflection in Day in the Life

I try to take a few moments every year to look back on everything, reflect on all that happened, good and bad. I think it’s important to remember what I learned, what I’d do differently, what I’m...

Baby It's Cold in Self-Indulgent Fun

It’s actually not cold here, just dreary. I think I’ve written about this once before but I find the discussion about this song kind of dreary too. I’m not going to take one side or the other but...

Merry Xmas in Day in the Life

Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate it! And also, to those of you who are forced to celebrate it because your family does even though you really don’t, like me. And maybe you don’t enjo...

Aging in Sometimes I Wonder

To be honest I’m not that worried about it. I used to be! Oh man did I used to be. I thought that growing older meant I would never be valued, loved, appreciated or beautiful anymore. I thought i...

Date Night in Day in the Life

Pretty relaxed day. We kept Teeny home from school. She was so upset about her rabbit she barely got any sleep last night. The last thing we need is for her to try to make it through school and f...

Sad Day in Day in the Life

Our pet rabbit passed away today. She had been with us for years and was like a member of the family. My children have been crying and writing her letters. I spent much of the evening comforting ...

I don’t speak to my mother. Years of counseling and even more years experience has confirmed for me that this is for the best. I tried for decades to have a relationship with her but it always re...

Bad Luck! in Day in the Life

Fell down the stairs this morning. I’m okay I think, just all banged up. Amazing, after all the millions of toys/papers/clothes/books etc these kids have left on the stairs over the years, I’ve n...

Things Which Bore Me in Day in the Life

I, as a grown woman, have very little interest in man-children. A few times in my life I have become infatuated with a man-child, and when I fall, I fall hard. They say the bigger you are the har...

Trust Vs Judgement in Sometimes I Wonder

Let me tell you a little more from my past and maybe it will help explain some of my ways of thinking. I know that other people think I’m too judgmental. I know that. I have been trying lately to...

New Job! in Day in the Life

I got the job I interviewed for! Well, sort of. It’s not as many hours as I was told. In fact, it’s only a little over half! Hopefully the work environment makes up for it. I know it’s a beautifu...

Starry-Eyed in Lady Reigna's Lovers

Mister M took me out for my belated birthday, tonight. Wow what a dreamboat! And I still think this after 11 months together. I hadn’t seen him in a couple of weeks, and it felt like so long. It ...

Movies and Things in Day in the Life

Tonight I took 2 of my girls out to see The Nutcracker and Four Realms. It was okay. I suppose it’s worth seeing just for the costumes and scenery. It is visually appealing and the acting is okay...

I QUIT! in Day in the Life

The absolute last of the last straws, management was extremely rude to me today when I tried to call off and implied I was faking it. That bitch actually said “Sorry, I’m gonna need you to come i...

Things Can Get Better in Day in the Life

I didn’t feel things could get better at all, and that feeling is part of the lie that is depression. It was beyond my ability, at the time I entered the hospital, to really picture my life impro...

Nope! I refuse to buy into this. The mommy wars can take it to the extreme, but I’m not going to accept the opposite idea either, that “No mom is better than any other”. Haha bullshit. If that we...

Hold Your Baby! in Sometimes I Wonder

When Riley was a baby I held her all the time. I almost never put her down. I curled her up in a sling and packed her against my chest in a Snugli. I breastfed her until she was 13.5 months old a...
