March 11, 2021 – A Good Day

Have you ever had one of those days when everything fell into place effortlessly? I’m experiencing one of those days. Aside from insomnia, I cannot find fault in a single thing that happened today. It’s about as close to perfect as I’ll ever get. The day started out beautiful and sunny. I woke up muchContinue reading “March 11, 2021 – A Good Day”

March 10, 2021 – Safeway Monopoly

My friends, I’m in big trouble! Safeway has started up their ‘Monopoly’ game again. This is not good! I am a sucker for free stuff and I know that if I ‘play’, I am bound to get some free stuff, even if it’s just some bottled water, aspirin, and a canister of salt. I cannotContinue reading “March 10, 2021 – Safeway Monopoly”

March 9, 2021 – “At least you have your health.”

There was a common phrase that ‘older’ people used when I was much younger. I didn’t understand why it was so popular until I was in the thick of my own (physical) health issues. The phrase? “At least you have your health.” It used to really irk me because it seemed dismissive, kind of like,Continue reading “March 9, 2021 – “At least you have your health.””

March 8, 2021 – When it’s time (Part Two)

Another thing that I could never comprehend was that even though she professed to being a Christian, she managed to justify having an affair with a married man. Huh? Yes, the last time she flew out to see me (when I lived in another state), she was ‘in love’. She had met a guy thatContinue reading “March 8, 2021 – When it’s time (Part Two)”

March 7, 2021 – When it’s time (Part One)

Did you ever meet someone when you were very young that you considered a friend? Not just any ol’ friend, your best friend. They became nearly interwoven in your life because they were always ‘there’ when you needed them. Every birthday, every anniversary, and every Christmas, a card or cards word arrive in the mail.Continue reading “March 7, 2021 – When it’s time (Part One)”

March 6, 2021 – Love and Marriage

So many times I could have thrown in the towel. So many times. We met when we were both incredibly young, just 19 and newly ‘out in the world’. Initially, I wasn’t the least bit attracted to him. I always gravitated toward ‘bad boys’ and he was far too nice to fit into that category.Continue reading “March 6, 2021 – Love and Marriage”

March 5, 2021 – Psychic Connections

Do you ever find yourself thinking a great deal about a specific person and then out of the blue, they reach out? Or, on the other hand, you reach out and they reply with, “How funny! You’ve been on my mind all week!” The means of connecting can be through a phone call or aContinue reading “March 5, 2021 – Psychic Connections”

March 4, 2021 – Thrown for a loop.

Would you like to know the best way to throw me for a loop? If you don’t know, I will gladly tell you. First, give me a minimum of two things to choose between. Let’s say, for instance, you have asked me to choose between two restaurants to dine at. Be aware that the moreContinue reading “March 4, 2021 – Thrown for a loop.”

March 3 , 2021 – The Five Stages of Grief

As I sit in a place of acceptance today, I realize that I literally just went through the five stages of grief. In the last 5 days, I have experienced every stage. Denial. Been there. Anger. Done that. Bargaining. Yep. Depression. You better believe it. Acceptance. Uh-huh. You would think a special person or petContinue reading “March 3 , 2021 – The Five Stages of Grief”

March 2, 2021 – Why must life be so complicated?

Sorry, my friends, I am here to rant today because I simply don’t know what else to do. I feel like I’m about to crack. My husband is tired of me talking incessantly about the insurance snafus so I don’t want to burden him any more. Ordinarily, if I cannot make sense of things afterContinue reading “March 2, 2021 – Why must life be so complicated?”
