Goodbye Dad, I Love You


“Mommy, will you always love me?” The Girl Child asked, seemingly at random. “Always,” I answered. “Will you always like me?” she asked next. “Maybe not” I said. Harsh, I know. As she stared back at me with a shocked expression on her sweet, seven year old face, I began to explain. “I will always,

I Found My Mother’s Family


My grandmother died five months ago. I just found out a few days ago when I stumbled across her obituary online. Well, stumbled may be a little misleading since I was in fact looking for her, but I wasn’t expecting to find out that she was dead. Actually, I wasn’t even expecting to find her

On Losing My Anonymity


We were in the car, all six of us, a few girls that I knew and a couple that I didn’t. We had been in the car for a while when somehow the topic of Botox came up, which immediately segwayed into the topic of plastic surgery. As the girls were commenting on what they

My Mother Texted Me


  My mother texted me. I deleted it so fast that later that night I actually sat back and wondered if I had imagined the whole thing. But I hadn’t. The screen shot is burned into my brain like artwork that you despise hanging above your bed. I can’t not look at it, and yet

I’m Afraid Of Me


We were on our way to another state to visit some friends of hers when it happened. The next thing I knew we were pulled over on the highway, the car parked up against a concrete barrier, and she was screaming something to the effect of “WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE.” I sat in

Take A Deep Breath


It’s been awhile since I generally updated you on my life, hasn’t it? Sometimes life just sort of snowballs on me and then suddenly I realize that I haven’t updated you on certain things in a while. So, I guess it’s about time that I catch you up on a few things! The Boy Child

They Came Softly


I know, the title, but come on, it wouldn’t really be my blog without at least one slightly inappropriate innuendo, now would it? Ok, now GET YOUR MINDS OUT OF THE GUTTER. I saw my mother at the grocery store the other day.  I needed to go to the health food store and I drove
