Stretched out on the treatment table, three thoughts went through my mind: 1) Is this going to hurt? 2) Is this going to do anything at all? 3) What am I going to have for lunch? Oh, also a number 4 that flitted in and out quickly...what was Miley thinking?Thomas had already announced that he [...]

The things we will do out of desperation…
I may have mentioned a time or two that I have not been sleeping. Sleep has been an issue for me for several years, but the last 10 months have been brutal. Anxiety, depression, poor eating and exercise habits have all contributed to my lack of sleep, I am positive.So yesterday morning, out of sheer [...]
A list of Thankfuls this Thursday morning.
Still re-reading your messages about your own struggles with anxiety/depression/stuff. As I was reading them this morning, this reminder came across The Twitter:Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! Psalm 150:6Praising Him for:...puppy breath and nibbles......nestled in my Mame's chair, crocheting and listening to the crickets sing their night song......warm velvet [...]
It’s a Monday morning random list on Wednesday.
UPDATE: I have heard from so many of you, privately, that you too struggle with anxiety and/or depression. We are not alone. YOU are not alone. I think connecting with each other and knowing that we all struggle with "stuff" is helpful. At least for me. Thank you for sharing with me...I often DO feel [...]

10 Things I love About Monday.
I've always been a huge fan of fruit. If stranded on a desert island, I would demand three things: The Book of Psalms, my light flannel sleep pants, and an endless supply of blueberries. Really, though, would any of us have a choice in what we would be able to grab, let alone demand, if [...]
Feeling a bit selfish this Saturday morning.

And some laundry.So far it is 9:30 am and I am still sitting in Mame's chair, sipping coffee, listening to My Man pace around the house doing who-knows-what, re-reading my journal notes from this morning's quiet time.And waiting.The Wild Boy [...]
I am a technology hound. I love my iPhone, iPod, iMac, PC, iPad, music in every room, nice big flat screen in the living room with surround sound. All of it.Also, clearly I am spoiled beyond reason. We are spoiled beyond measure. Sometimes I feel terribly guilty over it. Being such a Princess. Or The [...]
A to do list, of sorts.1. What's worse than having your own stuff lying around because there is no place for it? Having someone else's stuff lying around your house. Getting rid of boxes and extra lamps and, Lord, help me, the scooter parked in my living room...August goal #1.2. For Sale: Electric Scooter. Snappy [...]
