When It's 9PM Here, It's 6AM in Fallujah--2013

I don't know anything that I could do or say about our Veterans then what I said last year about  my stepson's service in the Marines.  Tomorrow is somewhat of a sacred day for my family, we thank God for our son, and pray for all the families who have loved ones in our countries service.  May God bless all our Veterans, past and present.   This is my husband's son, my stepson Mark. (He's the one in the middle of our 2007 Christmas photo.)...more

Nothing to say...

I have been sitting in front of this computer now for almost an hour with nothing to say...which is simply incredible if you know me, but explainable if you realize that 3 days ago I decided to sign up for NaBloPoMo on Blogher and almost immediately ran out of ideas...I'm not sure that counts as a coincidence or not. Deciding to write a blog a day for NaBloPoMo gives November a sense of purpose for me...it means that it's not just a cold, dark month with nothing to do but go to work or nap...Now it's a cold, dark month where I blog about going to work and napping!...more

Celebrating a Rare Occurrence, “Thanksgivukkah”

This Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 28, 2013, we’ll not only celebrate Thanksgiving, but this year it also coincides with Chanukah or Hanukkah [if you prefer] (some are still undecided)—a rare occurrence, to say the least. Actually, Thanksgivukkah (termed by many) this year takes place on the second night of Chanukah/Hanukkah, and this melding of celebrations hasn’t happened since the late 1800’s, and it won’t be seen again for another 1,700 years, in fact!...more

Why Dating Former Classmates Is No Longer Part Of My Plan

I have a quirky personality. My ideal date ranges from hanging out the bowling alley, attending a foreign film festival, head banging at hard rock concert, and/or a picnic on the beach followed by a leisurely stroll.Being out in the dating world can be difficult for some like me because, as one former boyfriend stated “I am a difficult woman to categorize.” After spending a few years being misunderstood, I decided to mine the ranks of former male classmates.Who better than someone already acquainted with me to appreciate the quirky aspects of my personality?...more

What do you do when no one is reading your blog? You beg.

Sometimes I wonder if I'm wasting my time. Is anyone even reading this shit? But I don't stop. I keep on tippity-tapping my rapidly aging fingers against the little square buttons on my keyboard in hopes that one day I'll at least get a sparkle on Blogher....more
