The Door

I have an issue. Well, in all honesty, it's probably number 1,642 on my list of issues but it is one that I need to figure out how to deal with QUICK before I end up in some looney bin or even worse, jail. I don't know exactly when it started but in the past... Continue Reading →

Inside Out Challenge – Day 4

The angriest letter you never sent I have only written two angry letters in my life that I can recall. One was written just a few years ago on this blog. Technically, it was "never sent" but it was posted as an Open Letter to a Puke. I don't know that this person ever saw it... Continue Reading →

I am at a loss…

Monday was my first class of a 4 week series on diabetes education. I kept tearing up through the entire class. When the... Continue Reading →

The old me would avoid it at ALL costs; my... Continue Reading →

Someday I’ll Get It Right

Well, I failed myself this weekend. Just when I think I've got it, I do something so stupid to prove to myself that I don't. Thank God I'm striving for progress and not perfection but I'm doing a pretty good job of beating myself up for it. This past Sunday I was able to visit... Continue Reading →
