I went out into my yard today to plant and pick up mowed grass and pull weeds, enjoying the sun and the music from my Walkman and being peaceful. I dug up the spot for my cabbages and brussels sprouts, tilled it, raked it, and began planting. I stood up after… Read full post »
Another experiment in pharmacology seems to have failed for me. What is it about my physiology that doesn't allow me to live inside of an FDA approved bottle of chemicals?
This post won’t be a lesson in physiology as I really don’t know enough on the topic to expound and… Read full post »
What are we doing
at 2 in the morning
That compells us to lie here
awake and alone
This magical hour
of 2 in the morning
It catches us wanting
to not be alone
Asleep then awake here

Saturday, I mowed and worked in the garden and admired my plants. Here are a few pics for you. I put the descriptions at the top this time.
The salad in pots. I have it screen covered so the squirrels don't dig it up. They do hide nuts in the pots… Read full post »
Once upon a time, there was a girl named Phyllis. She was a nice girl, a fun girl who only wanted to live her life by having a successful career and getting married and having a wonderful family. Along the way she partied quite a bit and had fun, until one… Read full post »
What happens when you click this link then click to read the post there?
For me, it sends me to my blog page. What does it mean when it does that? I would like to read the post.
Be sure to try to open the post. I can get… Read full post »
This is going to be a short one. This public service announcement is needed because too many people are buying into the fallacy that you have to report rape in your chain of command. Why do I know it's a fallacy? Because I skipped the chain of command, and the two… Read full post »
I have been looking at the title of David McClain's latest post, A Day Spent in the Past, and it took me a while to finally get over there and read it. I have been trying to write something for a few weeks, and I just can't bring myself to do it. Since… Read full post »
I am going to clean out my house. It's time to get rid of crap and find some space for myself.
I am going to write what it's like to be me. I need to do it for my disability re-evaluation and I hate the having to do it. I… Read full post »
Hi! It's spring again, and time to garden. Here is my first foray into planting to feed myself. Get ready for lots more...
S is for the snores you send to save me
L means only that it's getting late
E is for the enervating drive home
E is for the end that looks so great
P is for the Puff who purrs so sweetly
Y is for the yawn that makes me quake
Put them all together they… Read full post »
I want to thank all of you who visited my rant from yesterday. Thank you for hearing me and leaving such great comments for me to read. I also want to thank the persons who rated and didn't comment. Silent support like that feels like a hug.

I am getting ever so much closer to the tests on Friday for my evaluation, and I am getting more and more pissed about it. (Sorry, Jake, for the profanity there but no other word will work.)
The doctor that I have been referred to sent me a 9 PAGE FORM to… Read full post »
I made another little gain in getting to know myself better last Friday. I’m still incorporating it into my thinking, but I’m finding that it is also making my life a little easier, knowing this tidbit.
I went to a “lady doctor" on Thursday to see what my options are… Read full post »
To give this a try
Their advice should always be heeded
This juice from a cactus
This vaunted elixir
Who knew that this drink could be seeded?
As in “the source, origin, or beginning of anything”
I was down in the dumps
Spent the whole day alone
And felt that some choc&rsqu… Read full post »
I just wanted to share that I got a new sewer pipe today. Since I moved into this house in May 2003, I have replaced the furnace, had the house insulated, had the duct work cleaned and patched and wrapped, replaced the plumbing, replaced the sink and the toilet and the… Read full post »
There was a young girly named Suzy
Whom people said really was floozy
She was pert and petite and really quite sweet
And was sad that she never watoosied.
Suzy was vexed as a tarty
She really did want to go party
Her parents said no, it was such a blow
Since both of them really lived/… Read full post »
I talked to a financial adviser last week who advised me to make a plan for my future. Today's horoscope said to create a vision that will feed my heart. It's weird how life goes.

I tend to live on the premise that everything happens for a reason, that the events that happen in life are lessons to learn and pieces to fit into a puzzle. What if I’m wrong?
I’ll start with the premise that everything happens for a reason. I’ve spoken before of… Read full post »
The maxillary sinus became inflamed
Her face began to hurt
The frontal sinus was next on the list
She lost her will to flirt
The ethnoid sinus joined fray
She took herself to bed
Now the sphenoid sinus cuts off her air
She can't breathe through her head.
Woe is me she cries to… Read full post »
Ugh. Why haven’t I followed my dreams? I actually have a better question; do I still have the same dreams? And do I want to follow them?
Yes, I want to follow dreams. I want to create things. I am still modifying my design for my new purse. I’ve pretty much… Read full post »

Hello. I felt the need to add my two cents (link) to the discussion regarding women in combat roles in the United States' military. I can't help but see this as a good thing for human society, and as another step towards freeing up humans in general to be the best… Read full post »
