I'm Baaaack (again)
One thing that happens when you don't check your blog for a year is a LOT OF SPAM. Dear lord there are some funny comments on this thing. I tried to delete them all, but then I got bored. I want to get back to this, and I always think I am going to, but the...

The worst week I can remember
Today is my 44th birthday.  Which again, makes zero sense to me as I am still in my 20's, I swear. This past week was one of the worst weeks I can remember, since I have been sober.  Let me run it down for you. MONDAY:  My 11 year old son had surgery on his...

This family needs help. The unimaginable loss of a child and the financial struggle of putting him to rest. My sister's life-long friend is the mother to this beautiful boy.

I cannot imagine being in this situation. It just breaks my heart.

A little birdie told me…(you didn't think I was TOTALLY going away)
I've heard word that a certain folk thinks I stopped writing in this blog at my lawyer's advice.  Not true.  My lawyer doesn't even know I have a blog.  It didn't come up in our conversations.  I did it because you have all heard me bitch about Bob for long...
