I finally got to see the Dixie Chicks this weekend! I’d gotten tickets back in December for my BFF’s Christmas present, and we were both excited to be there. When I took this picture, it was still early — by the time the Chicks took the stage, every inch was packed. Lots of drinking and […]

So I had another diverticulitis attack, timed perfectly to start with the holiday weekend. I wasn’t as sick as I’ve been, but enough to keep from sleeping more than a few hours at a time. (So much for no sugar — most of the things I can eat during an attack are really bad.) I […]
No sugar in 8 days. Anyone else doing it? How’s it going? Did you know there’s sugar in fish sticks?
I have to solve this problem, once and for all. So starting Monday, I am doing a strict sugar detox. I’m not pre-diabetic, but I have so many damned health problems I know are related to chronic inflammation — and sugar’s the biggie. So if any of you want to do it with me, let […]
Yesterday, I got a letter from an insurance company telling me someone filed a claim against me for the car accident I was in back in October. I was pretty angry when I talked to their claims department — I said it was a three-car accident, a hit-and-run according to witnesses, and that neither I […]
I’m in the house where I grew up, sleeping in my old bedroom. I hear loud party noises, and when I go out in the hall to investigate, there are a bunch of people who are friends of my father, co-workers, etc. who are meeting my dad to take him somewhere for some kind of […]

I did have some kind of pasta meal that wasn’t awful; it reminded me of Chef Boyardee, which my mother fed […]
I started Nutrisystem today, and I have to tell you that when a friend described it as “eating cardboard that tastes like tobacco,” he wasn’t far off. Not at all. However: All the weight has crept back on, and then some. In order to save my poor aching left knee, I am doing two weeks […]
I’m asking yet again: Do you guys want me to stop telling you what I think about our current politics? Perfectly happy to put up other stories in which I have no intellectual investment if that will make you all happy. Because frankly, it really pisses me off when people attack me in my own […]
I have a new job and I can’t even talk about it because I signed an agreement — and to be honest, I don’t even know what’s in it because I haven’t had time to read it. I’m working far too many hours and I’m so frickin’ exhausted. If anyone wins the Powerball drawing anytime […]
