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.

Okay, starting out last week I had: a loose tooth (thank God not a front one!!) from eating a chicken EXTREMELY NON-TENDER from Redner’s....a spot on my big toe nail that I had read might be mela...


In my last entry I wrote about how happy I am to be so outgoing now, since I was extremely shy for well more than half of my life. I think I want to elaborate on that shyness, and also the fact ...


Sometimes I still can’t get over how outgoing and, well, popular I am now, at age almost-sixty. I was an extremely, painfully shy child and teenager and pretty much the same as a young adult. I ...

I am a Flapper. in A New Beginning

Sooooo, I am going to a Halloween par-tay tomorrow night at Seelie Court, but I am not really excited about it. I dislike parties. And I especially am not very het-up on this one, because Joe can...


I decided a few days ago that THIS weekend I am not going to try to plan any “sister things.” I’m not mad at my sisters. I just need some free time for ME. The past two or three weekends, any se...

Being Included. in A New Beginning

I’ve worked at the same school for six years. Three years ago I opened a new FB account in my “real” name because I wanted to be able to include my work friends in my outside-of-work life more. ...


A very dear older lady friend, whom I admire very much, wrote recently that she feels overwhelmed. She is a great deal older than I am, nearly always in some degree of pain, and has no energy fo...


Our new boss Jane unleashed a demon when she told us that, instead of our usual royal blue uniform tops, we can wear holiday or seasonal-print uniform tops ANY DAY THAT WE WANT TO. This has excit...


Ugh, I have had another long-ish lapse in my blog-writing! I really want to keep writing here regularly, darn it. Well, the only way to write here is to just do it! So here goes… This morning we...


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...
