    2020-10-15 If I’m Being Honest…

    I might as well be painfully honest. **Spoiler alert.. Rant city, dead ahead in 30 seconds. I have not had one of these in a while, but no matter how good life is, it is bound to happen. And the longer I hold the angst inside, the worse it will be when it comes out. […]

    2020-09-22 The Benzo Trap

    How do I feel about benzodiazepines? The title says it but doesn’t do justice for calling it out as the devils candy that it is. It’s evil. It’s a quick fix. An over prescribed band-aid which might have valid clinical use in a limited capacity for something, but not sleep. I’ll skip most of the […]

    2020-07-13 Prognosis Pending

    Mostly I’m just tired of saying I’m tired. Mostly I’m looking in the mirror and wondering if I’ll ever not feel tired. Or look tired. Some days it takes all the energy I have to appear awake and aware of what’s happening in the small, medium, and large circles I’m turning in these days. This […]

    2020-06-15 Take Back the City For Yourself Tonight…

    Or I’ll take back the city for me. Why is this Snow Patrol lyric in my head? It was a miserable day today. One of those days you realize, something has got to change. There are so many things in my life right now that are going right that it feels sort of ridiculous to […]

  • 2020-06-15 Whaaaaaat is WRONG With Me??!!

    It’s after midnight so it’s officially the 15th of June. It’s almost 1AM so I’m officially exhausted, frustrated, and dreading tomorrow. It’s no secret that I have a history of having issues with sleep. It’s right there in my list of categories. It’s one of the first things I check on my fitbit when I […]

    2020-05-24 Sushi Sunday Anyone? 🍣

    We had a glorious thunderstorm last night (apparently) and I woke at the end of that, happy to hear the rain as I’ve done some planting of annuals in pots the last week or so and every day it rains is a day I don’t have to. Thanks Universe! I also went back to sleep […]

    2020-04-17 Restless Sleep and Unsettling Dreams

    Everyday I wake up and check my FitBit. What kind of sleep did I get? What’s my sleep score and how many hours and minutes did the Bit think I was asleep? Everyday there is an advertisement (of course) to try the “premium” version that promises more insights. These are troubled times, reports the app, […]

    2020-01-31 The Play By Play +

    I spent 6+ hours yesterday breaking up and shoveling chunks of ice down the driveway. I spent 6+ hours doing that instead of all the other stuff on my to-do list because, well, it just needed doing. In some places the ice was 2+ inches thick and we’ve been buying ice melt like it’s the […]
