Yeah – that’s right. Pissy, ticked off, grumpy, scalding, seething, icky, poopy, crappy, @#?!*&$~ day today. It didn’t start that way. I woke up all cozy and friendly – woke the kid up, hugged him, made him breakfast, joked in the car, took him to the airport, stressed through 2 hours of lines, arrived at […]

Rock Star

No – this isn’t one about Gary – this is about his nephew. Today was a usual Sunday, nothing crazy to report other than Love Guru was a HUGE disappointment, and I actually had anxiety attacks the whole way through because I was so bored. The movie was filled with so many sexual innuendos, puns, […]

Al Naturaleza

As I chomp on a midnight bowl of Life cereal (no pun intended) I am tickled to report that we had quite a few adventures today. Justin went for some blood work (I couldn’t take him, so Gary was elected to be the “man” and handle the order). After my last appointment (an iMac emergency […]

Brain Rain

We love that it is raining. Our dear little lake has gotten so dry that I found fishermen GRABBING fish from the middle of the lake a week back, and who knows what else they were terrorizing or disturbing while out there. As rain comes down, with the daily snaps of local lightning, we take […]

Rummaging

Posted on June 23, 2008 - Filed Under self reflect | Leave a Comment

I was rummaging through a folder of stories and poetry I wrote in my late teens-early twenties. Most of it pretty far out there, much of it for college, and somewhat embarrassing. I considered posting them slowly anyways, since it was a lot of creative energy and I really can stand seeing it die in […]

Standing in Smoke

Posted on June 22, 2008 - Filed Under self reflect | 1 Comment

I watch, ear plugs deeply embedded in my ears, as a mass of bodies thrust, heave, undulate, and thrash amidst a haze of smoke and lights. I am a little Miss Goodie-goodie standing in a crowd of mostly hard-core fans, watching my husband as if he were something… someone else. His face transforms when he […]

Another House

Posted on June 21, 2008 - Filed Under self reflect | Leave a Comment

Since grad school I have had these crazy house dreams. Houses, with stuff, none of it mine. I keep rummaging through, looking, observing, like an art critic at Nude Night in Orlando, touring through rooms of all kinds. Sometimes I am with a posse of family, following in line, fellow searchers. Sometimes I think I […]

And Then there’s this

Posted on June 19, 2008 - Filed Under self reflect | 1 Comment

I have been helping a client or two with their blogs. After feeling so frustrated with a few clients earlier in the week, I get to finish the week out with those who make me feel good about what I do. And – the ~UNIVERSE~ is in balance again. Sitting In The Dark

What a day

“Vamana accepts this definition of dejection, … as a loss of energy owing to the non-completion of the work undertaken by a person… or loss of energy due to the absence of the means for the attainment of ends.” [Jadunath Sinha’s Indian Psychology Accessory States: Transitory Emotions, pg 241] What a day – stressful – […]
