Consistency redefined.

A few days ago I blogged about being the most inconsistent person in the universe.I said I was okay with that....  but I'm reconsidering.I think that I have always seen the word "consistent" to mean something good, but always as something that I couldn't achieve.  I happen to be, for better or worse, a person of...

The person you don’t call

I have had a lot of friends, and I have lost a lot of friends.  Friends come and go, it's just a fact of life.  Someone once told me that relationships are funny things...  sometimes they just fall apart.  People change, grow in different directions, lose touch. Sometimes relationships end in emotionally violent ways.  I've... Continue Reading →

For the past 18 years I have done everything I am supposed to do. ... Continue Reading →

OMG Make it STOP!

I was planning for today to be relatively relaxing.  We had to do some general cleaning (a couple loads of laundry and the usual daily stuff), we needed to go shopping but the hubby usually handles that, and that was about it.  Well, and the hour and a half of driving we had to do...
