Take Care of Your TaTas!

I went to my yearly mammogram appointment this morning. As always, an absolutely professional woman had to pull my breasts around and press them between plates and crank them flat to take an image of the insides of them. I’m not complaining. Well, okay I am a little. Yes, it is uncomfortable but one ofContinue reading “Take Care of Your TaTas!”

I Am Not An Infinite Source Of Energy

Happy Friday readers! I don’t even clock into a paid job and I STILL look forward to Fridays every single week – crazy right?

Zero to 100

I have not been very active for a few months. I have been dealing with some things at home and I have allowed myself to chauffeur the kids, do my chores and then pretty much just sit and brood. Of course that is bad for me and of course I gained 15 lbs. Duh! IContinue reading “Zero to 100”

The Karen Hair Cut Part 2

I shared with you that my last hair cut was not to my liking. I am not blaming the hair dresser. She did a good job. She listened to what I wanted and created the hair cut I asked for. The problem was that I don’t know what I’m talking about. LOL Today, after plantingContinue reading “The Karen Hair Cut Part 2”

Is It Abuse If They Have A Mental Illness?

Yes. Trauma can affect how you feel about yourself and how you feel about others. You’ve heard me mention that my mother was abusive. The abuse was mostly emotional, verbal and many times physical. It was never sexual thank goodness. People who suffer sexual abuse are on another level of healing that is very difficult.Continue reading “Is It Abuse If They Have A Mental Illness?”

First a woman is premenopausal, perimenopausal and then finally in menopause. According to my not so thorough research on THE INTERNET, during the menopause transition women often have changing menstrual cycles, vaginal dryness,Continue reading “The Karen Haircut”

A Love Letter To My Besties

I dedicate this blog to my two best friends. They are so very different and I love that about them. They have similarities too – they both work hard whether they like their job or not, they are loyal to their families even when the family members can be stupid, they nurture with every ounceContinue reading “A Love Letter To My Besties”

Mental Illness Sucks The Joy Out

Sucks the joy out of what? EVERYthing. Once, before my husband was medicated and in therapy, I told him that he sucked the joy out of our holidays and special days. I know it sounds awful but we were walking on eggshells and it just seemed like he was being such a jerk. Now IContinue reading “Mental Illness Sucks The Joy Out”

Sleep Study: The Final Chapter

I finally have my CPAP machine. Thanks to COVID/DELTA everything moves at a snail’s pace in the medical world. After my final study I was fitted with a surprisingly comfortable “mask” that goes on below my nose. It did not trigger my claustrophobia so that is a plus. It is uber quiet and I getContinue reading “Sleep Study: The Final Chapter”

Mask Upkeep

Five years ago if you were to tell me that part of my laundry routine would be hand washing masks and drying them on the line I would have laughed in your face. But here I am in August 2021 doing exactly that. Yes, yes, I tried washing them in the washer with one ofContinue reading “Mask Upkeep”
