I Have Bendii Syndrome

I am a Trekkie – I also am a Star Wars Nerd. I have been going through menopause AND depression from watching my beloved Daddy die from lung cancer. So I have been a hot mess. Throw COVID-10 quarantine/pandemic and 4 years of Trump and you get me – a hot hot mess. My husbandContinue reading “I Have Bendii Syndrome”

WHY is there no I in TEAM?

Someone recently commented to me that he did not feel like we were a TEAM. That got me to thinking. What exactly IS a team, really? One noun definition is that a team is a group of players forming one side in a competitive game or sport. The verb definition is to come together toContinue reading “WHY is there no I in TEAM?”

Happy Easter!

There is something I have always not been forthcoming with. I’m generally a TOO HONEST person and I shoot straight from the hip. I try to be very open with all of my friends as trust is very important. However, the one thing I have constantly danced around is religion. In my tight circle ofContinue reading “Happy Easter!”

I like snakes because they EAT rodents, so there. Anyhoo, I guess I am mostly a cat person. I like other people’s dogsContinue reading “The Furry Therapist”

Asian Love/Hate

This blog is really becoming eclectic, isn’t it? I really do try to stay on the topic of laughter in the face of diversity and seeing the funny irony of life. Sometimes though, real life is so in your face, you can not help but talk about it. Since my Bipolar blogs have gotten aContinue reading “Asian Love/Hate”

School Yearbooks

Do you ever look at any of your school yearbooks? I recently just got rid of all mine. They were taking up a lot of room and I had dragged them around from move to move for too many years. I finally decided to purge at the end of 2020. My elementary yearbooks were longContinue reading “School Yearbooks”
