A New Old Love

For many years now, I’ve kept several notebooks that I filled with what I saw as lyrics. I was never given the opportunity to learn an instrument so I never put music to my words. So as time passed the music in my head faded away from the words on the page and 6 months … Continue reading

For Better, For Worse

“I take you to be my lawfully wedded husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, until death do us part.” Traditionally, these words, or something close to them, are said at every wedding. In … Continue reading

Face Off

If I wrote a book with all the things that I’ve had to deal with over the course of my 30 years, it would be so thick no one would want to pay for the paper to publish it. Paper, like everything else these days is expensive you know. The current struggle I’m dealing with … Continue reading

Love is…

Now, I am by no means a “holy roller,” “Bible thumper” or anywhere close to what most would call religious. I struggle with faith. Always have. After all, what God would punish an 11 year old with such a bad hand? But, I digress. With all the sh** that my life has dealt me, both … Continue reading

I’m Gonna Love You Through It

If you have spent any amount of time sifting through my musings, you know that music and I have always gone hand in hand through life.

Update: 3 days Til Christmas

It is officially December 22, 2012 and we’re all still here. There are no impending dangers last I checked. Humanity is continuing just as they have been, for better or worse. Moreover, I am still too far from home. Christmas is only 3 days away and I am no closer to my husband and 6-year-old … Continue reading

In A Perfect World….

My husband, my two boys and I would be living happily ever after. I wouldn’t have gotten Crohn’s Disease. I wouldn’t have gotten Celiac disease. I wouldn’t have gotten PSC. I wouldn’t have been picked on as a kid because I was sick and too embarrassed to explain why I looked the way I did. … Continue reading

Lost Time

Due to unforeseen circumstances, I haven’t been able to post in a while. I won’t go into details because they’re not important but I feel like there are a few things that I need to get off my chest. First, my last post became more controversial, both personally and on here, than I had intended. … Continue reading
