The Big Bad

but before the big bad there was the Big Good. I have to go back to last Wednesday.  It was my night out to be free.  Sadly, because of scheduling conflicts and other stuff, Wednesdays are now just any other day that ends in Day. Campfire, good food, drinks, even better conversation.  My friend and…

a weekend of a different color

In my last writing post I wondered where I was heading.  Not a whole lot has changed since then - which is to say that it's been a lot of change and I still don't know what's what. First - the weekend.  No, it wasn't a weekend from hell.  Not like this one.  This one…

I think it’s perfectly clear…

Like the roads of my childhood, my direction in life takes on the characteristics of country roads.  Not the ones out here that cut farm land into nice neat squares, the ones out east that go around the trees, over the hills and along side the streams. I'm not exactly sure where it's taking me. …

who’s weekend is it anyway?

I've lost track of the number of times I've saved my husband this weekend. It's only Saturday, and it's not even bedtime for the boy. Oh yeah, and I worked an overnight shift so I was actually gone until 8:15 this morning.  I'm not really even supposed to be here....Just sort of hanging around not…

my shell

I am pretty hot. I know I haven't posted any pictures of myself on here, so you're just going to have to take my word for it.  Men want me.  Everywhere I go.  I feel their stare,  deal with their come ons...it's always been that way.  Yeah, I like it sometimes.  Sometimes it's annoying. Here's…

The Chameleon Concept

Wednesday was my weekend.  Let me rewrite that.  Wednesday was my weekend.  Okay, from 6-11pm was my weekend.  The rest was the usual menial tasks that are supposed to add up to something great.  Fortunately 6-11pm Wednesday added up to Something Great all on its own. Hanging out with my friend.  I brought expensive gin,…

the ASD maze

I've been on the search for something.  I don't think I'll find it really.  I'm sure it's there, but it's unique-there's no singular rule, so I have to define it for myself. I don't like that. Over the last week or so my husband and I have followed this separation schedule.  We stay away from…

List: why my daughter is awesome

Reasons why my daughter is awesome: She thinks bugs are awesome. She includes others in her appreciation, getting kids and adults (that start off squirming in their seats ewwing at the thought) equally interested in tiny aspects of bugs that make them not just creepy crawly things with lots of legs but amazing creatures that care…

new laptop post

Well, here I am! Typing on my new laptop! I have a computer.  YAY! honestly, there's been too much going on over the last few days for my brain to write up a fun to read, quirky post. Here's the lowdown: I took my kids soft-trail bike riding.  It's like a scaled down version of…
