When you hit the wall

Today was a day off filled with plans for a nice four day weekend ahead. An early start with a few stops before heading out on a road trip to visit friends and say good-bye to an old friend we lost earlier this year. The trip has been planned for over a month. Did I […]

Love Your Own Way

We grow up, many of us at least, being told that we will meet our one true love and marry them. That’s where things are supposed to lead. You meet, you date, you may move in with each other, then you settle down and get married, possibly having a kid or two. That’s what I […]

DD – 19 Years

Dear Diary, It’s odd how things can sneak up on you at times. Things you haven’t thought about in years that suddenly break you all over again. Yesterday was an anniversary of sorts. 19 years ago yesterday the Rock Man proposed to me for a second time. The time I said yes. It is also […]

Promises to Myself

It would seem that I am becoming less organized and productive as time goes by. This isn’t just a blogging thing, but with my life in general. I start out with great plans, or not so great plans but plans none the less, and before long the plans go out the window and I’m coasting […]
