I'm sitting here listening to an Indigo Girls playlist on YouTube. It's been a while since I listened to them, and oh man, how I've missed these beautiful melodies. They're like the female version of Simon and Garfunkel. They make me want to learn to play the guitar. Their music reminds me of my carefree … Continue reading What Would You Give for your Kid Fears?
Things never quite end up the way I worry that they will. See my video for a recap of my dentist appointment and my run-in with the law today. Pardon the bad lighting, bad outfit and bad hair portrayed in this video. This is really just how I roll at home. https://youtu.be/LrxFZnZWY9Q
I'm not one to wish the days away, but going back to a full work week after two nice, long holiday weekends is rough. Last night I gave my 6th Toastmaster speech. I might be starting to get the hang of it. I spent a ton of time preparing a PowerPoint presentation to accompany my speech, … Continue reading It’s Only Tuesday
Today I'm going to talk about breasts. Boobies, melons, sweater-stretchers. Snuggle-pups or sweater kittens. Whatever you call them, there's no denying that people spend a lot of time thinking about these glorious glands. In my growing-up years, my friends and I gleefully anticipated growing ample bosoms in our teen years. We practiced by stuffing all manner … Continue reading Magnificent Mammaries
Hi! Man, I have been slacking with posting here (or anywhere, really) lately. I actually thought about taking a little hiatus while I try to focus on some other aspects of my life, but that just seems too severe. Plus I want to be able to write when I feel like it, and the moment I say … Continue reading Miscellany
Hey ya'll! My apologies for the serious lack of posts lately. As often happens, life seems to rise up and consume my time like a ravenous beast. I haven't even taken time to do my morning Zentangles this week, which is an outrage. Here are some of the things I've been up to: Last Saturday … Continue reading A Brief Recap of Recent Life
Hi there! So I was going through some of my journals looking for future Throwback Thursday posts (because it's easier than creating new content) and I came across this one from just two years ago. I hope it gives you a chuckle. Tuesday, December 18, 2012 Well, today confirmed what I'd always suspected was true: … Continue reading Throwback Thursday – Bonus Edition!
Being hearing impaired but not wearing a hearing aid (or a sign that says "I'm deaf on the left") makes for some interesting life experiences. I've unintentionally offended people when I've seemingly ignored them, when really, I had no idea they were talking to me or talking at all. There have been plenty of times that … Continue reading Can I Get a What-What?
On Friday, I sat down with my boss to discuss how things have been going since I transferred into her department earlier this year. We talked for 2 hours, and probably could have gone on longer if it hadn't been 5:30 on a Friday afternoon. I won't detail the whole conversation, but there were two things … Continue reading You’re Beautiful, It’s True.
What super power would you have? Why, invisibility, of course! Sure it would be nice to fly, or shoot lasers out of my eyes, but to be invisible . . . now that would be really cool. One spring afternoon in Music class, we were learning a song about the rain. On the handout there … Continue reading The Umbrella Story
