I almost forgot.........

that I had a blog. And then one of my dearest friends reminded me - she asked me about blogging some time ago and then just days ago told me she had read mine. I was very touched and reminded about this online journal of sorts. This blog has definitely been a place for me to let it all go, speak honestly and never hold back.

I decided to come back here after a failed attempt last year; I have spent the evening reading over the last 8 years of my life and all that has taken place. All the while the man in my life has been on the couch listening as I read from the past and laughing with me and just listening. "Cape" (thats what we will call him for short) really came out of nowhere and hasn't gone anywhere since. We have been together since September 2015 and are going strong. Sam, Tator and our new addition, Libby are all still here and living with us - yes thats right we live together and its been a very LONG while that I have shared a space with someone special. I am happy though, after all of this time - truly happy. Cape isn't what I expected and he is his own person, however he is all about me - genuinely. I can feel his love, sense his concern for my feelings and most importantly he can understand my OCD - hahahah - no really.

I hope to continue to share here as life progresses, as it always does and provide myself with a life to look back on and smile like I did tonight as I read from so many years ago.

Thank you Mandoline - for reminding me :)

The call came.....

and man I wish I could say it was a relief. It wasn't. Uncle Sam took me to the cleaners and then some......I am now in debt to the federal government and I am not happy about it. It could be worse, I am hearing this a lot lately. Just when I thought this was the worst news to be had, I also learned my rent is increasing this next year and I have uncovered an immune system that is shot. Go figure. Stress  maybe......I say yes. At least I am on track to dig out and strengthen the immune system - my ultimate goal is go be healthy and forego a sinus/upper respiratory/bronchial infection within a 3 month period.

That what doesn't kill you makes you stronger - literally lets hope. On a brighter note I had some much needed girl time with Jess and Kiki this past weekend! Kiki came in first and Jess, her mom and benlette came in later - we had such a great visit and one that was much needed for me FOR SURE! Love them all to pieces.

Uncle Sam

Awaiting THE call from your tax accountant and/or preparer is the worst. ever. It's as if they hold your entire well being and/or future in their hands.

Love or Friday the 13th?

Well here we are, the eve of Valentines Day - THE day that everyone falls all over themselves for, expectations are set, butterflies are in stomachs, we should all own stock in flower companies or farms and of course the disappointment......but not me not this year.

I am focused on that its Friday the 13th and almost 8:00pm and not a damn thing has gone wrong all day! Not only that, I have a great weekend to look forward to with my "pack", celebrating the one and only KIKI. When we get together there is always an assured good time! This year Valentines day has been the furthest from my mind, in fact I kind of forgot a couple of times - this of course is very different for me from years past. Normally I am forlorn, down, depressed, wishing I had a valentine of my own and of course was receiving flowers. Honestly I think I have grown out of it; I am really starting to appreciate the single life, the freedom it allows and the other blessings I have in life.

Not too mention, after years growing up watching the Charlie Brown cartoons, that are Valentines related, I should be made of steel - these are brutal. Charlie Brown never receives a Valentine, is always overlooked, desperately searches out the affection of a little red haired girl and is always disappointed too.

Here's to Valentines Day - wishing you love and happiness just not tomorrow but all year long. Besides I have the best "cupids" to keep me cuddly, warm and all loved up tonight and alwsys- Tator and Sam!

Warning Labels of Life

I am pretty sure that when you are 37 3/4 yrs. old the warning label on your life should read something like this:

"The following program may contain scenes and language not meant for children, parental discretion is advised. "

Or something of that nature, yada yada yada.......anyway my point being there should be some life in your life, ya know? Things that may be "unsuitable" for your viewers. To date I would say my life is pretty vanilla and I may have a hard time even earning a PG-13 rating.

These days my life label would be this:

Thats's right people. I am more of a Little Golden (no pun intended) Book these days.......
