I just have one question, how is it September already??!! It was during September of last year that I began this blogging ‘adventure’ and I cannot believe how quickly the time has gone (as well as how much has happened)! Around this time last year, I was experiencing some pretty significant emotional lows and feelingContinue reading “September 2, 2021 – How time flies!”
Why is it that certain people get ‘under my skin’. It’s much like the splinter that became lodged in the nailbed of my right thumb a couple of weeks ago. They both involve ‘pain’, but with the splinter it’s physical, and with people it’s emotional. It doesn’t matter where I go, there’s always ‘one’. TheContinue reading “August 25, 2021 – Under my skin.”

When I awoke this morning, I immediately started to think about one of my neighbors. Instead of how I wanted to spend my day or what to cook for breakfast or if I needed to run to the store for last minute Christmas shopping, my thoughts immediately honed in on the crusty guy who lives on the adjoining property.

He’s a guy that shares a fence with us. What’s his name? No idea. Why am I wasting precious brain cells thinking about him first thing in the morning? He doesn’t like me. How do I know this? Every single time I walk my dog past his home and he’s standing outside, he stares at me and scowls. That’s his response if I walk by and wave or walk by and say ‘hello’ or walk by and smile. He looks at me with utter disgust. I just don’t understand it. What did I do? I must have done something to elicit that kind of response. People you don’t even know cannot simply dislike you for no reason whatsoever, can they?
Billy Joel, would you please get out of my head?! I am tired of hearing about uptown girls and a particular state of mind that you’re in at the moment and only good people dying young. It has been nearly three hours and no matter what I do, I cannot seem to shake you. IContinue reading “October 26, 2020 – Name that tune! Earworms, what happens when a song gets stuck in your head.”
