Facebook Memories and Co-Dependency

Today I logged into Facebook and, as usual, right on top was a Facebook memory. A photo from 2012 captioned, “Gorgeous day on the boat.” It features my husband, my daughter, an old friend and her son. It didn’t make me happy, though. It made me incredibly sad since I am no longer friends with [...]

This week Big Girl started taking finals. She goes in for two hours and comes home. Yesterday, she was home by 10:30. I had planned to work in the morning and take off midday to do something fun with her. We decided to go for a walk in the preserve. Lazily chatting and ambling along, [...]

Life as a Dizzy Shut-In

It’s been a while since I blogged regularly. For a variety of reasons, really, but lately it’s because I have been busy recovering from a concussion. I have post-concussion syndrome, actually.

A long time ago before Little Girl was born there were two imaginary friends who lived in our house, Natro and Jessica. They slept in the dining room and ate dinner at the kitchen table.

Today: “Mommy, the girls were playing at recess and found a cool cut through to a secret area. I went over trying to be nice and to try and get involved. I asked if they had found any clues and [name deleted] told me, ‘Go away, this is none of your business.’ What should I [...]

Anyone who hangs out with me knows I am not as touchy-feely as the average person. It is what it is. Last year I noticed Big Girl seems to be taking my lead, stiffening up when kids hug her and avoiding physical contact unless necessary. It’s come up in the past, but it really hit [...]

I haven’t really been writing too much about my personal life for a variety of reasons, but I’m jumping back into the personal stuff now — at least for today. It’s been pretty well documented that I am, despite the way I act and what I do for a living, a very shy person. For [...]

I got a card in the mail today from a neighborhood woman. I told her about the miscarriage when she called to ask me to send out an email for a local organization. At the time, she was so sweet, telling me how sorry she was for our loss. We got off the phone and [...]
