So yeah, life is good because I am still here,otherwise, it’s meh…

So, I HATE my job. My boss has suddenly decided to mega micro manage and has taken out all of her aggression/issues out on myself and another co-worker. My daughter is being harassed/bullied/freezed out by crap people at school. So yeah, I am all rainbows and unicorns and sparkles right about now.:) No, really, I…

So, I feel behind on life…

So, watching the Office and speaking with a stranger at Target, made me feel like I am so behind at life. Kind of weird that watching Jim and Pam's wedding and speaking with a young woman in the Target bargain section has made me question my station/progress/level in life. I don't know how to explain…

So, Lord, this I pray…ways to cope with the stressors of life.

So, Lord, I pray for much and more often than I say thanks and I know that is not right. But I am trying hard to be more thankful and enjoy the moment and give God the thanks HE is due. The whole saying about comparing oneself to others stealing Joy from us is spot…

So, a poem on being done with it all, except greatness…

I'm fed up, I'm done, but not finished. I can no longer hold back. There is greatness inside of me. I am too sparkly to be dulled. There are too many good ideas. Many great theories to share. I can no longer quell them. Ineptness from "superiors" drains me. So, no more talking the talk.…

So, time for a poem or is it a story?

I toss away people like tissue on the floor It keeps the hurt away and my heart from being sore Protecting myself is goal number one After so many disappointments I find it easier to shun I want to be one who holds people near But looking in my contacts there are few that are…

So, I feel like I am often on the outside looking in or vice versa… Do you?

So, I have never felt that I truly fit in anywhere, completely. As a result, I have in some ways diminished the sparkling personality that is part of who I am in order to not be 'so me'. At other times I am all about being overly sparkly and letting people deal with it. I…

So, Why do I love thee Atlanta?

So, Atlanta. Why oh why do I love thee? It's complicated.   Honestly, you had me at Peachtree. Every time we went to the grand ole Capitol of GA when I was a kid I loved it. Even through my teen years, when I lived there for my first career jobs, and more recently visiting…

So, apparently there is a “Slow Movement” going on. I want in…

So, have you heard about this movement where people are taking it slow and going back to basics? I was reading about it and it was basically about not multitasking and being more mindful of time and and eating organic. I was not quite sure how eating organic was a part of this theme. But…

So, antibiotics are also mood lifting?

So, after my gloomy and doomy post, I have a more Deeish disposition to share today. I feel like a different person! I think between having a sinus and ear infection and my usual bout of thyroid issues, that is why I was so gloom and doom. After 10 days of antibiotics I am iut…

Like my annual trips to New York? Want more? Boy, do I have a deal for you.

Lauren at Literary Dates reads books set in New York, reviews them, and then goes on tours around the city to places mentioned in the book. All the fun of New York, without having to take three trains to haul in from Newark Airport.

Last December, Lauren was kind enough to allow stragglers to tag along on one of her tours. Before the trip, we read A New York Christmas by Anne Perry. Places in the book ranged from Fifth Avenue to Hell’s Kitchen to Little Italy. The book was set in 1904. I wondered how Lauren would arrange a tour 114 years later. Lauren and New York did not disappoint.

As with her virtual tours, I learned things about New York. For example, when I hear the word tenements, I…
