I am Me ⋅ 59

My husband and I are empty-nesters (finally! yaaaay!!), nearly sixty years old, and both of us work for our state's public school system. We live in the countryside in a rather humble little home with our dog, a sweet-natured chocolate Lab named Guinness. We are Wiccan and members of a large esoteric tradition called The Assembly of the Sacred Wheel. Much of our lives are filled with going to spiritual events; much is also filled by spending time with our family, and enjoying the outdoors.

Normally I sleep GREAT. I sleep all night long, no problem. If I get up to go pee, I have no trouble getting back to sleep. But then THIS WEEK CAME. I’ve had some really stupid dreams, which is a...


I don’t know why I couldn’t have normal sisters, but then again, I suspect there are more “abnormal” people in the world than there are “normal” ones. ;o) My sister Sandy is a loner. She says so....


‘Tis a question TO be asked! I don’t even remember when I last wrote, or what I wrote about, and I can’t be arsed to go back and look. I only have time to write! Not to read what I wrote before!...

A Very Short Fuse. in A New Beginning

I used to be Ms. Nice Girl. I thought a lot of nasty thoughts but did not say them because I reeeeeeeally didn’t like confrontation, especially at work. Now I am almost sixty and I have a very s...


I tell you. My job as a lunch lady is a damn KILLER. I thank all the gods that be, that this was a four day week, because if I had to drag my poor tired ass in there again tomorrow, I!! WOULD!! ...


First thing on my mind....a good FB friend of mine, with whom I went to high school, is in the hurricane-hit part of Texas. She and her family elected to stay put instead of evacuating. As soon ...


The title was what I said about the eclipse here in Delaware on Monday. Gosh, even though we only got 80%, I thought it would get darker. I’ve seen darker cloudy days!! I know it was an awesome e...

Got over it. ;o) in A New Beginning

Sooooo, my niece has put me on top of her Shit List again, because I made a comment she didn’t like on FB. Mind you, the comment wasn’t about her; it was about Mount Rushmore and how that mounta...


Yesterday morning I got my epidural injection. Wow, it was like they were all lined up waiting for me, I was taken care of so quickly! I was just signing in on the sheet at the window when the s...


My first true confession is that yes, I worry about money. Joe always has told me that I don’t need to. And we’ve never been in financial trouble, so I guess he’s always been right. But still......

Another New Start! in A New Beginning

Three or four entries back, I wrote something that caused a couple of my long-time friends to think I wanted to have snailmail penpals. I actually think that, although I didn’t THINK I meant tha...


I haven’t written in days. It seems like many days! So I’d better get on the ball here! Sad to say (though I’m not really sad about it), much of my time and attention have been devoted to getting...


Man oh man! For the last couple or three paydays, it’s been so tight that it seemed like I couldn’t even get ahold of two pennies to rub together! That would not have been the case had we not mad...


Well, our weekend away turned out to be only half a weekend. Saturday was GREAT though. But then evening came, and I went to bed, and The Sciatic Beast awakened! I hurt so extremely bad that I w...

Off the handle! in A New Beginning

In an hour or so, Joe and I will be dropping Guinness off at the boarding place and heading upstate to attend a weekend-long intensive workshop taught by Christopher Penczak, a well-known esoteri...


Ever since I wrote my depressing little entry about how depressing I find taking lots of pills to be, I have been feeling very much more chipper! Mind you, I’m still taking lots of tylenol, but t...


Soooo, I still have three weeks to go until my next epidural pain block. And I am really taking a fuckin’ lot of pills. Extra-strength tylenol and/or aspirin for back and body pain. I have pre...


I have broken my several-years-long reading fast! Yaaaaaaay!!!!!!! I just finished my second book of the summer. I’m not in competition with anyone but myself, and that is a lot more than I’ve m...

Grumpety. in A New Beginning

Okay, sooooo, I am a bit grouchy today but I don’t really care. I am frickin’ sore, and pissed about it. I can’t really say that I’m pissed at the doctor or his receptioniest for not being able...


I started writing an entry this morning telling ya’all how I shouldn’t have gone to the workshop I attended on Saturday, because the six hours on my ass in the car PLUS the six hours on my ass in...


So in my last entry I wrote about how I found out that I can’t get my next spinal injection for another month. Some of my friends here were livid on my behalf, and I appreciate that. The next mo...

In my last entry I wrote about how my sister Carol and I had had words, and I had blabbed something that was very true, but that she did not want to hear. Years ago, I would have run and just ke...


Today I am going to write about flowers and sisters. Flowers, meaning the ones I just bought and planted. Sisters, meaning sister.....my sister Carol, who can be very sweet or very NOT. Did I tel...

Bringing Happy. in A New Beginning

Our chocolate Lab, Guinness, is my best buddy. I never thought I would love and feel for an animal the way I’ve come to love and feel for him. When I was growing up, my Dad did not want pets in...
