Repeal and Replace and a Big Dose of Reality

I feel despondent. Congress is determined to pass a bill that impacts health care availability. My health care availability. Oh, the impact to me won’t be so obvious. I have health insurance now through my current employer, and said employer is unlikely to discontinue health insurance coverage. I won’t be needing maternity care. I don’t … Continue reading

It’s All Her Fault!

While shopping Thursday I heard a store clerk tell a customer that Elizabeth Thomas, the 15-year-old TN girl abducted by school teacher Tad Cummins, was found with Cummins in a cabin in northern California. Then the clerk commented that of course Elizabeth went willingly. I am flabbergasted that so many people see nothing wrong here. They say … Continue reading

Tiny Little Furry Monsters

I have created monsters! Tiny little furry monsters. When Rumpy had pneumonia, I started feeding him chicken to get him to eat. Now he insists on it. I mix it in with kibble and he eats all the chicken and most of the kibble. Otherwise he won’t eat his dog food. Now Bubba has decided … Continue reading

Living with Cats

I talked about how Rumpy is such a comfort to me since the election. But there are also cats that live in this home who are keeping me on the straight and narrow. I don’t have time to wallow in anger and hurt; I have two elderly cats with hyperthyroidism who are always hungry and … Continue reading

And So it Begins…

Yesterday protesters in DC were arrested after breaking store windows and at least one car was set on fire. Here in Nashville, protesters were arrested after they formed a human chain, and with the help of some duct tape, prevented anyone from entering or exiting the capitol. I happened to be walking around during my … Continue reading

Dinner for One

Last night I cooked dinner for myself. For some, cooking is a necessity. If they don’t cook, the family does not eat. For others, it’s a thing they do because they always have, or somebody has to do it and they do a pretty darn good job of it. In this age of fast food, … Continue reading

Living in the Shadow of Men

Within the past week: A man in north Alabama shot and killed his wife and then himself. An Oregon man beat his wife to death, shot his three children in the head, set their home on fire and then killed himself. A Texas plumber shot and killed his wife and her elderly father, then set their home … Continue reading

The Meeting in Conference Room 12A

Not exactly holiday-related, but this poem came to me after watching a group meet in a nearby conference room. . The Meeting in Conference Room 12-A   “Get the door please, Mabel.”   As she maneuvers the maze of swivel chairs to the conference room door, suits talk work, kids, and sports. The meeting begins. … Continue reading

Accept What Is, and Live Anyway

. Women have very little idea of how much men hate them. Germaine Greer (The Female Eunuch) . One of the many hurts I’ve experienced since the presidential election is the sad reality that so many Americans hate competent women. Yes, hate. They don’t just dislike women. They despise women with a backbone who speak their … Continue reading
