An Acronym Correction: “BOGOHO”

Posted March 18, 2009 By LifeIsChange

Every time I see one of these Payless Shoes “Buy One Get One Half Off” commercials, I sigh in frustration. BOGO means “Buy One, Get One”.  Not “Buy One, Get One Half Off”.  That, obviously, would be BOGOHO.  Why do they not realize that? And, I suppose, a person who just can’t pass up every […]

Earworms?

Posted March 18, 2009 By LifeIsChange

So there is a name for it!  It sounds gross, but “earworm” is evidently the name of this “thing” I have where I get songs stuck in my head. This blog post explains earworms this way: Earworms are quite a bit like obsessional thoughts. Like obsessions, the melodies tend to pop into your mind unannounced, […]

The Nastiness of Food Addiction

Posted July 7, 2009 By LifeIsChange

Well, this is about the nastiness of my food addiction.  I can’t speak for anyone else’s. So, I was talking to my therapist yesterday about cravings.  Not the physical kind of cravings that tend to fade somewhat when one begins to avoid excess sugars, but the emotional cravings that have driven my compulsive overeating for […]

Cleaning Up The Chaos

Posted September 2, 2009 By LifeIsChange

I started this entry back in January and it’s been sitting in my drafts since then.  I finally wrote another entry that touched on the topic, so I guess I’ve “broken the ice” of discussing this publicly, although this is still really, really hard to admit.  There are a lot of other things that most […]

Beware of Gluten-Carrying Strangers

Posted March 5, 2010 By LifeIsChange

Ah, geez.  I couldn’t figure out, on Wednesday, why I was so scattered and unable to focus at work.  I slept enough the night before.  I took my ADD medication, just as I do every day.  I didn’t feel particularly overly hormonal.  The Fibro was apparently the reason my neck was hurting (more about the […]

Strange Horoscope

Posted March 10, 2010 By LifeIsChange

I don’t read my horoscope very often, especially the ones that show up on just about every home page option list that only take the sun sign into account.  I mean, come on, every Gemini out there is not going to have the exact same kind of day. But today, as I was revamping my […]

Muskrat Love

Posted June 20, 2011 By LifeIsChange

This morning, for some reason I don’t actually understand, I had the song “Muskrat Love” stuck in my head for several hours.  Thinking about the lyrics*, I began to see this little scene in my head: A crime has been committed in Muskrat Land.  Sam and Suzie are being questioned at the local police station […]

My apologies to anyone who found this post by googling Katy Perry and then was disappointed to land on the blog of a middle-aged woman who blogs about her health and feeling old.  I would have written this as two separate posts, but it all goes together, for me. . . So, SS and I […]
