Impatiently Waiting & Wishing

Is it rude to yawn when people are speaking?  I hope not, because I have a case of the yawns, like a super-duper bad case and these yawns are coming one after another and they are unstoppable.  I am crazy tired these days, like, let me take a snooze at the stop light, just for… Continue reading Impatiently Waiting & Wishing

Driving in the Rain

Today, much to my surprise, it was raining when I left for work.  Although it is still technically spring, where I live in the desert, it does not rain often, so it was quite a pleasant surprise.  And, since I never check the weather, it is always a surprise to me when the weather strays… Continue reading Driving in the Rain

Patience, the virtuous thing

How many times have you been told that patience is a virtue?  I have personally lost count.  Just so I clearly understood what a virtue was I looked it up (just love that I no longer have to pull out an actual dictionary and can go online, what an ingenious invention, but I digress…) and… Continue reading Patience, the virtuous thing

I’ve Gained More Than Just Weight

It dawned on me the other day when I got sight of my nakedness when I was climbing into the shower that I am everything that young me feared I would turn out to be.  Pretty frightening actually. Quite the opening sentence, huh.  I can be harsh, especially when I talk about myself and my… Continue reading I’ve Gained More Than Just Weight
