My Son has Crabs

Catchy title, eh? Actually, he has one crab, bought from a mall kiosk, with Spongebob painted on his shell. Lovely, I know. He's wanted one for the last two years so I finally caved. It's low maintenance, just water his sponge, sprinkle food every couple of days and then watch his scaley little legs... Sign in to see full entry.

OCD Gone Wrong

I have 'quirks' (which is a much nicer word than compulsions). There, I said it. It's embarrassing, but human. Right? I mean, they're not limiting (ok, some are) and I am aware of them. I do, with much effort and discomfort, occasionally go against some of these urges. Given that, I'm still in... Sign in to see full entry.

I hope no one minds, but I really cannot be serious today. I've got PMS. And the FCM (food coping mechanisms) are just ridiculous this time around. I want HAM. PIG. HOG. You name it.

But just before that magic moment when I get to put my stuff up there to let them take my money, I swear I have invented a lot of the things you see on the... Sign in to see full entry.

Like Sunshine When it Rains

I have two emails in my inbox right now. One is announcing the birth of a baby, the other the death of a friend. My dear friend Judi died this past Saturday. She's been ill for a while and the last few months her health has declined rapidly. I met Judi when I lived in Monterey California over 15... Sign in to see full entry.

Lessons from my dying daughter

My daughter is healing from yet another surgery. This past week we had to have her placed on a feeding tube. She has come through it very well and seems to be taking it ll in stride. She's remarkable. She knows more about life than I do, that's obvious. She has lessons for me and that's obvious too.... Sign in to see full entry.
