If It Acts Like A Child And Feels Like A Child . . .

Posted July 8, 2009 By LifeIsChange

The dreams came in like needy children, tugging at my sleeve I said, “I have no way of feeding you, so leave”. Prince of Darkness – Indigo Girls Hmmm.  Well. Ater I wrote and then re-read yesterday’s entry about food-addiction-related cravings, I was struck with how obvious it seemed. All the pondering I’ve done about […]

Crap Crap Crap

Posted September 6, 2009 By LifeIsChange

Did I blow NaBloPoMo already?  I’m posting this at 1:30 am on the 7th, but it still feels like the 6th to me, and in many time zones it’s still the 6th . . . Crap.  Technically, yeah, I blew it.  And even worse, I dated this entry for the 6th, since I’m still on […]

Mom called earlier to say that Dad had chest pain and they went to the Emergency Room.  The pain disappeared once they got there, and the tests have been showing nothing wrong, but they admitted him and are keeping him overnight due to his age.  He’s 79. Of course, I know that if the tests […]

Ah, music.  How just the sound of a song can take you back to a particular time and place. Yesterday, SS and I were talking about . . . something . . . and it reminded her of the song, These Boots Are Made For Walkin’, and I started to sing the song.  I could hear […]

My Trip, and A Few Pictures

Posted February 19, 2010 By LifeIsChange

I arrived safely home on Monday from my trip, and I had a great time! The flight up: My flight left Friday night, about a half hour later than originally scheduled, because when the plane came in from the previous flight, they had to circle a few times while waiting for their turn to land.  […]

The One-Year Plan

Posted February 24, 2010 By LifeIsChange

As Kate noticed in her comment here, and as I mentioned again here, SS and I have been working on plans for living together in the future.  Because we live about 1000 miles apart, and because we have both been going through some major life changes in the last year or more, this takes planning. […]

Strangers In The Nose

Posted March 4, 2010 By LifeIsChange

Ok . . . purely in the interest of blogging on topic for NaBloPoMo, I’m going to admit one of my stranger quirks from my childhood. Here goes. When I was three, I called boogers “strangers”.  I don’t know why.  I actually don’t remember the word “booger” being used in my house.  I don’t remember […]

Old Strangers

Posted March 7, 2010 By LifeIsChange

This Stranger Story happened to Sister, but it made us both laugh and she said I could add it to my theme-blogging for March. She was sitting in the drive-through line at Dunkin Donuts the other day, getting coffee on her way to work, when an old man in an SUV pulled up beside her.  […]

My NotReallyNaNoWriMo 2011

Posted October 21, 2011 By LifeIsChange

I wrestled quite a bit about whether to participate in NaNoWriMo this year, because there is so much going on during the month of November.  SS and I will be in Florida for a week, for our Commitment Ceremony.  We’ve not only been planning the ceremony and reception for months, but now, of course, we […]

NaNoNoGo . . . and . . . We Do!

Posted November 16, 2011 By LifeIsChange

Well, I had intended to write something this November, even though I knew I wouldn’t be officially participating in NaNoWriMo, but as it turned out, I didn’t even do my modified not-really NaNo version.  I’m ok with that, though, and I realize now that it wasn’t a very realistic undertaking, with everything else that we’ve […]
