Originally posted 2015-11-06 12:55:22. It’s been a crazy week. Crazy AWESOME! But I should back up, because I really want you to understand WHY it’s so utterly gobsmackingly fantasticalistically chalked full of woohooohooo’s and *splorts* and O.M.F.S.M. moments. Last year at this time, I was in a pretty bad situation. I had taken a room…

Originally posted 2015-10-14 05:00:13. This has been a fun week for me. On Monday, SP and I went to the National Museum of the American Indian after a delightful lunch with the hubs. It’s free, and part of the Smithsonian collection. Twice, SP and I were told by security to quiet down in there. Although…

Originally posted 2015-10-07 02:06:14. I got to sleep in this morning for an extra hour. We had to buy a duvet during the week, as it turned bitterly cold, thanks to the pre-storm to Hurricane Joaquin. The cold weather affects the hubs intensely now, since his chemotherapy and oxaliplatin (the cancer meds that made him…

Originally posted 2015-10-03 05:00:32. This past week was a shorter one, as the kick-off for the new #100days started on Wednesday. Still, I had a crazy busy week. A visit from a girlfriend who I hadn’t seen in exactly 5 months (minus a day), and another who was around almost daily during my “hibernation” in…

Originally posted 2015-09-28 05:00:39. I will succeed. Again. Integrity. Honesty. Motivation. Desire. Pride. Resolve. Courage. Longevity. Strength. These are the blocks I shall create as my foundation of my new #100days. Hope. Positivity. Determination. Reality. Patience. Respect. Understanding. Patience. Humbleness. These are the intensely strong binding cementing glue that will bind my days together with…

Originally posted 2015-09-19 05:00:56. I guess you can say I’m gonna brag for a minute. Don’t worry; it’s not going to go to my head. *Egopixie* doesn’t exist. In the last week, my inboxes (regular and “other“) on Facebook, along with several other media sources have been happily bombarded with delightful messages. I’ve been entertainingly…

Originally posted 2015-09-03 05:00:42. Somehow, I’ve missed a week, so this might be a touch longer than usual, as I’m going to try to cram in two weeks worth of life into one entry. I’ll apologise ahead of time, as it’s bound to be a bit random and might be topic-jumping. Chairs. Anyone with “junk…

Originally posted 2015-08-23 15:48:16. Dear Rin, I wish I could hug you in real life. Someday, I really really hope that it happens. You changed my life. You saved me. And I’m not even sure that “thank you” is enough. In fact, I know it’s not. So that’s why I got your permission to do…

Originally posted 2015-08-18 12:55:30. This “being healthy” thing is fun. I have found a sense of calm within myself, and the background noise of the past in my rear view mirror is fading and dimming and well, finally becoming more distant as seconds become days, become months. On my way home from the gym yesterday…

Originally posted 2015-08-11 14:27:45. Technically, the walk I showed off in last week’s review (of 16,000+ steps to Central Park) was the start of this week, but I wanted to focus on something different for this one. Not only am I changing my physical, but I’ve mentioned that I am altering my entire lifestyle. That…

Originally posted 2015-08-05 13:54:49. I hate crowds. I mean, full on Feralpixie when I’m near more than say, ten people at once. I might seem very gregarious and even social butterfly online, and even in extremely intimate settings, but more than three people, and unless I’m familiar with the others in a very relaxed setting,…

Originally posted 2015-07-27 23:57:20. I’ve wanted a charm bracelet tattoo for decades now. There were always certain ‘charms’ that I was sure I wanted – the T.A.R.D.I.S., a daisy, a book, and a butterfly, and a few others, though there were several – roughly five – that were always in flux. Last year, whilst in…

Originally posted 2015-07-19 23:35:23. So a girlfriend of mine, from Hamilton, Ontario (Canada) had a nice little idea during these #100days, to see my responses to a few things. She wants to do a few more questions in a few of weeks as well, to see what’s changed. I did record the actual skype chat…

Last year, my then fiancé (now husband) video chatted with me on Skype after his trek to Snug Harbor – where June 28th they were holding an annual Polish Festival. Since he’s a scuba diver, he went to…

Originally posted 2015-06-27 15:22:19. What did I learn in Week 4? Well, it’s the entire thing. Just keep walking.   I wore crocs for over eight years. I have NEVER liked the feel of shoes on my feet. I used to live on the outskirts of a small town that had a single flashing yield…
