Productive Days

I am sorry for the post that I removed late last week.  I was using this as an outlet to vent and felt that some of the comments received were a little to hard to hear so I removed it.   But on to today…. I have had a lot going on this past week.…

Lost in the Snow

I had a whole post written that I started on Friday, added a little more to it on Saturday and finished it this morning, but when I went to post it it was lost. Ugh. Stupid phone app.  I will not lie – it was witty, fun, heart warming with a side of anger and…

Past Triggers

The snow does not seem to want to linger on the ground.  The locals keep describing a winter that I fear does not exist.  I would love to see the rivers and lakes frozen over for ice skating to occur.  I would love to be forced to carry my shovel in my car with me everywhere I go…

First Snow Fall

It has been a while, this I know, but I found myself in a place of darkness and eagerness to rant.  Instead of going off on things and strongly stating my opinions on irritations, I decided to take a step back, allowing my mind to settle. I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday season and vacation time.  I…

2” x 5”Confusions

When I moved to West Virginia I moved to a place with a better community, environment, and school.  It was important that the girls attended schools that were not poorly rated and struggling for academic success as a whole.  We found that here in their new school.  The girls are overall happier in class, coming…

Foggy Disaster

I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday weekend!  I know that we enjoyed ours!  Thanksgiving means counting down to all our December events!  My birthday is on the 6th, the twins on the 12th, and then we prepare for Christmas!  We also have a Girl Scout ceremony and a parade to be apart…

Wrapped up in Themselves – Part 4

Years had passed and that young 16 year old girl had found me through the advancements of social media.  She wanted to reach out to me and apologize for lying to her parents about that night.  She stated that she was too afraid to tell them that she willingly had sex and saying she was forced…

Wrapped up in Themselves: Part 3

I had just landed in Portland when I heard all my voice mails.  I had a warrant out for the delinquency of a minor.  I tried to explain the situation to my parents on the way home from the airport, but I have always felt that they thought that I was hiding something.  The truth…

Wrapped up in Themselves: Part 2

At the time I was a smoker.  I spent most of my time at the party sitting on the back patio with a cigarette and beer in my hand.  I didn’t dance so you didn’t catch me in the main rooms of the house.  I was only lured inside because a boy that I began…

Wrapped up in Themselves: Part 1

Everyone seems to be wrapped up in their own little problems and thoughts, but why shouldn’t they be?  They are after all more important to them than the issues that others may be facing.  I like to believe that I have a higher spirit than most trying to find ways to make sure others know that…
