Some days, I am my own worst enemy

Most nights, I am in bed and reading before nine o'clock. I am so exhausted by the end of a workday that it's all I can do to get through feeding the pets, making (and eating) dinner and then maybe an episode of something on Netflix, so being snuggled down under my weighted blanket with...

Well, I didn’t see THIS coming!

So it's been about a month since my registered letter asking my father to cease all contact was received, and I've heard... nothing. I'm actually kind of surprised, I expected at least a bitter letter denouncing my 'betrayal' and normally in this amount of time I'd get at least two letters (his writing is as... Continue Reading →

Every day is a different adventure

I had a spell for a few weeks where my knees were complete treacherous bastards. Unless I was absolutely vigilant when walking, one or the other would slip painfully without warning several times a day. It got to where I had decided that this was my new favorite quote: This past week, they've been a... Continue Reading →

And now I wait for a reaction.

Father's Day conjures up images of lots of tacky gifts with "World's Greatest Dad" emblazoned on them, but while some people might have been picking out novelty ties for their dads this month, I was busy severing ties with mine. The timing wasn't deliberate; I actually sent the letter weeks ago, but since I sent... Continue Reading →
