Chocolate Cake And Snapped Don't Mix
I didn't see things coming to this. I had been teetering on edge for so long now. It just came out of nowhere, well, not nowhere. It has been building within me for decades, and I finally have just had all I can take.
My Journey With An Alcoholic
I have been married for nearly 40-years. I have been married to an alcoholic/drug addict for 30-years. My journey, for the time being, continues.
Witchcraft Gone Wrong

My Next 30 Years, Here I Come

Today I took a good look at myself, and it wasn't pretty. I found myself going over my bank statements, credit card bills, and yes, my Amazon purchase list.
I Just Can't Get Enough Of 'One Tree Hill'
My guilty pleasure binge-watching addiction is with One Tree Hill. I just can't get enough of those Scott brothers. I have watched this show probably ten times now seasons 1-9 in its entirety, if not more.
The Little Black Book In Grandma's Closet

Fighting Covid-19 In 2021 Starts With Getting Vaccinated
My fresh start for 2021 begins with getting the Covid-19 vaccination. It was two days before New Year's Eve when I got the call. A close friend who just so happens to be a nurse called me asking if I was interested in getting the vaccine.
