The Very Few Times I’ll Admit to Having a Soul

The very thing I didn’t want is the very thing I now have and has become the very thing I can’t live without.

When I was single, I had a huuuuuge list of ‘gotta haves’ and ‘ain’t no ways’ in a man. (Ok…things I prayed for.) The number one thing on my list of ‘gotta haves’? He’s gotta go to church.  And hold my hand. (And not just because I ask him to go with me.  Because it’s what he does.  With […]

Sometimes funny just happens. But this ain’t funny.

July 24, 2012

I don’t ever really try for funny.  More than anything I just do my best to keep it real. Just keep it real as best I can. Today?  There’s no funny.  At least not for me.  There really hasn’t been since that midnight showing last week. I think I’m officially old. For the first time […]

I never thought a man would understand women. Until I became, well…older.

March 28, 2012

I think the first time I was around maybe 34ish. Or so. Newly divorced.  And swore I just could never see myself being in my 40’s. Then I did it again when I was maybe 39ish?  Maybe?  I just know I was not 40. Yet. (Thank you, Jesus.) Then I did it again yesterday.  And […]

Being accepted just the way I am isn’t so SCARY after all…

March 13, 2012

I don’t remember why I even emailed her in the first place.  Probably just to thank her for being so “real.” I never expected a reply. I mean, really?  Like ‘she’ would have time to respond to ‘me’? But she did. SCARY. To say I was shocked is putting it lightly. I think I got […]

I’ve been dicking around before I knew dicking around was called dicking around.

January 1, 2012

I quite possibly may be the only person not all up into resolutions. I lie to myself about plenty without even realizing it at the time.  I don’t need to actually consciously do it. And list it all out. Though I did consider two resolutions a couple of days ago…but after about 2.7 seconds of […]

I like them. I really, really like them.

November 30, 2011

If I can choose who I get my pat on the backs from, I’m gonna always choose to get them from someone who “gets me.” Ya’ll know it’s huge to me when someone “gets me.” Mark at Yelling Near You straight-up gets me. I read his blog every time he puts  up something new.  He […]

If I’m not full of gumbo, messy and fighting for the remote, I’m not home for the holidays.

November 27, 2011

Since the holidays are finally underway, I’m ready to share that little rejected ditty I sent to that magazine a few weeks back. (I know.  I hate that word now, too.) They wanted an essay of 500 words or less on what Home for the Holidays meant to me. So, I told’em.  The cold, hard […]

This crap is serious but it ain’t funny. So go fold the clothes still in the dryer.

November 19, 2011

If you’re looking for funny stuff this time, you’re not gonna find it here.  Go on and fold those clothes that are probably still in the dryer or clean out that toilet instead. This is some serious crap for me here.  And this will be one of the rare times I’m serious. So, mark it […]

I had no clue they made 4:30 am…but I know now.

November 13, 2011

4:30 a.m. I know. I didn’t even know they made that hour anymore.  But, apparently they do. I was up. Barking at nobody but the darkness around me, but I was up. Today was the Race for the Cure in Austin, and well…somebody caught me at a weak moment 3 months ago and I said […]

People are good to me and today I have the perfect example.

November 4, 2011

Momma Made it Look Easy contacted me this week to say she is featuring me on her blog today. I crapped. Today is the day.  On that link up there…she makes me look really, really good.  It’s as if she is my virtual makeup artist, hairstylist, personal clothes buyer.  (OK.  Didn’t mean for that to […]
