When You Suck and You Know It
What a perfect way to tie 2015 up with a bow and mail it off to God knows where than by blogging again after months and months. I'll forever remember 2015 as the year that I lost myself.

For The First Time and Now Forever
On the mend. A somewhat less swollen Zo after her morning scare. For the first time in forever I saw her not as I knew her but for who she really was in that moment. This wasn't Zoey. It was a girl that looked like someone whom I knew, only frayed around th...
On the mend. A somewhat less swollen Zo after her morning scare. For the first time in forever I saw her not as I knew her but for who she really was in that moment. This wasn't Zoey. It was a girl that looked like someone whom I knew, only frayed around the edges...only swollen and bulging in ...

...It Isn't Zoey
It seems that we've got one girl who likes to glide on one foot with the other extended out behind, and another who gets all smiley when she gets to knock someone over on the ice. So we may have a hockey player on our hands, and it isn't Zoey. Zoey likes gy...

Awkward Snorkling Analogies and a Return to Blogging
Is there any coincidence that ever since I've taken a (long) break from exposing my inner most thoughts to the whole damn unsoliciting planet that I've felt completely out of rhythm with the universe? I don't think so. This was a place I found SO much com...
