Holiday Blues…

Holidays were always a bit awkward for me. The step-mom not wanting me around made it hard to spend time at my Grandparents if she was there with my Dad & brothers. I got used to being ignored I suppose. Got used to not having my brothers in my life like I would have liked.… Continue reading Holiday Blues…

Expenses…

  Eight dollars. You know someone hasn’t really been in a financial crisis when they cannot understand how you don’t want to part with even such a small amount. Hell spending a buck fifty for bus fare even. I grew up in a one parent household. Dad did help a bit financially, but it was… Continue reading Expenses…

Why I Hate Talking about Weight

People can talk and talk about weight and what’s considered fat/skinny and everyone will argue and hate you and I don’t even want to go there. But if it’s a HEALTH issue my stupid brain can’t help but butt in. And usually a complete stranger with a stick up their butt is the one to… Continue reading Why I Hate Talking about Weight
