Trying Something New

We’re going to watch American Horror Story (AHS) cult.  As much as I hate 🤡s, B agreed to check out the show with me.  

There’s a theme going on.  We’re going to see It for Anniversary date day.  You know as opposed to date night.  And this time we’ve chosen the daylight hours to celebrate because I’m already scared 😱.  Last time was because we’re back to having an assigned bedtime again.  😴 

Why Did You Do That? The Saga Continues

If this keeps happening, I may just have a new category.

B:  Hey I’m the only one allowed to do that.

Me: What? Walk outside naked?

B:  Yeah.

Me: I just took a few things to the recycling bin.  I figure I better do it while I still have the chance.  Once the new neighbors build their house, my days of streaking are over.

Screech.  Back up da bus or hold the door.  GoT casual reference and nope, I have never seen that show.  Though I hear I would have one or two years to binge watch and catch up.  Anyhow, moving along, the above is NOT exactly what happened.

Scene:  I got home from work first.  I changed clothes.  I unloaded the dishwasher and added my lunch dishes.  It’s a beautiful day in good ole China Grove.  I went outside.  I played with the dogs; then I fed them.  I took out the recycling.  All these are Lulu’s jobs when she is here.  She is not here 😦  I am dressed actually … with all pertinent parts covered … my attire though … well let’s just say my attire is somewhat skimpy.

Take two …

B: Hey, I’m the only one allowed to do that.

Me: Walk outside in your underwear?

B: Yeah.

Me: I just took a few things to the recycling bin.  I figure I better do it while I still have the chance.  Once the new neighbors build their house, my days of partially exposing myself are over.

B:  What would you do if my dad came over right now?

Me: I guess he’d get a free show.  Lol

Poor Popo, he’d be so embarrassed but I think he is kinda used to me by now.  And it only took @ 34 years.  I mean c’mon, the nest is empty and it’s our anniversary month.  Plus, I am only following the advice of a fellow blogger … easing into it actually.  Thank you Fred 😉

As always, more to come.


Remember in September – A Daily Post for National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month Post #5

As long as sweet Sue keeps writing them, I’ll keep sharing them. Word choice DOES matter.

My Loud Whispers of Hope

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month.

Every day in the month of September I will post something related to suicide to increase awareness, educate and prevent suicide. It may be some important facts, an educational video, a music video, other videos, quotes, stories and anything to increase awareness, educate and give hope to everyone who has suicidal thoughts, suicidal ideations or is a survivor of a friend or family member that died by suicide.

I think the cause and message is very important. I want to make a post a day on my blog every day in the month of September for National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. It is important for all of us to do our part.

We must make our voices heard very loud and strong about mental illness, mental illness stigma and suicide prevention. It is critical. It is crucial. Each life is priceless. We must prevent suicides and…

Missing Loved Ones

Written four years ago but still applies today. 

Lulu spilled her drink on the way to school today. By instinct I said “no harm done, could have been worse” then I got all sentimental and tearful and could not understand why. Finally figured out it is because I miss my daddy! It is exactly what he would have said. He was the most positive person I ever knew. Always a smile and a kind word for everyone he encountered. I wish I could be more like him. September is rough – both parents birthdays would have been this month 9/1 and 9/11. So many memories keep flooding in.

Word of the Day 9/5/17




1. make a quick, nervous movement of the face or body as an instinctive reaction to surprise, fear or pain.
