    2022-08-08 The Way a Heart Beats…

    808… like a drum.  For the past several weeks I’ve been feeling depressed. Not just sad or down, but a serious, “I have no desire to do the things that normally bring me joy” vibe. I’m pretty sure people who are depressed don’t use the word “vibe” to describe how they are feeling but I’m […]

    2022-08-04 Exploring the Writing Woes (again) Despite Everything Going My Way

    Yup.. It’s been about a month–over four weeks–since the last time I wrote anything. That’s something that has not happened in a very long time. It could mean one of three things: Life is going really great and I have zero complaints, problems, grievances, or irritations. Life is so busy and or rotten that I’m […]

    2022-05-08 A Million Little Things…

    Lately I’ve been wasting time watching more shows than I normally do. When I say “normally” I mean that normally I don’t watch shows at all unless Jim and I are sitting down for a chill hour of TV in the evening. And when I say “lately” I suppose I mean for the past nine […]

    2022-04-26 Being the Boss of Me…

    When I used to have a career, I always subscribed to this notion when approaching management with an issue: Don’t show up empty handed. Show up with potential solutions or at the very least something helpful or positive to counterbalance any bad news or problems. Now that I’ve dumped my career, I still think this […]

    2022-02-26 The World Needs a Sabbatical

    Today I read a tweet that was about the fact that the world continues to crumble and burn yet, here in America at least, society at large continues to press on as normal.  Sure we all continue on as best we can, getting up each day and trudging through it until our head hits the […]

    2022-01-04 On Tuesday’s I Take Out the Trash

    I’d love to say I do it for alliteration’s sake because something deep in me is enchanted by the sounds of words that just fit together in my mouth in a pleasing and natural way. But I take out the trash on Tuesday because Wednesday is the day the Man comes to haul it away.  […]

    2021-11-23 Pulling that Pin Out and Tossing it in the Trash 📌

    Yesterday I suffered from a mini-existential crisis and wanted to write through it. I wanted to write long enough for my brain to start unlocking the doors to potential answers. Hey.. it’s worked before so why not?  However life itself got in the way and I truly did not have enough time to get to […]

    2021-11-22 Today the Completely Organic Miss SugarCookie asks the Relentless and Unforgiving Question: What Am I Doing With My Life?

    I had one job today and I failed. And no matter what I do now, no matter what happens for the rest of this day or the next or the rest of the time I live in this house.. every time I see the result of that mistake I’ll be reminded. It’s such a trivial […]

    2021-11-20 Austin Adventure Day 1, 2, 3, 4, & Done ✅

    I’ll only be in Austin for one more hot minute and while it’s still fresh, here’s the rundown (for posterity)… Day 0: Land at the airport and be briskly whisked away by my Texas bestie who wastes no time heading to our traditional first night dinner spot. The District Kitchen. I depart from my norm […]

    2021-11-11 Doing Something is Better than Doing Nothing

    My husband Jim had said several days ago that I should “wait a week” and see how I feel. Ok.  Two nights ago I talked with him again and he’s come around to my line of thinking. He said that he will support me in my decision to see a counselor/therapist. Honestly, I don’t even […]
