Marriage. We need hobbies.

There are no off-limit conversations in our household. I adore the open forum, no holding back atmosphere.

However, I do sometimes wonder what an outsider would think of our antics. 


For example, I thought nothing of asking Josh how his butt was tonight... 
And, even better, he didn't hesitate with his response. 

We will just call this intimacy at its finest.

Never too far behind

Good manners. Wilson always waits for me. Okay, not always...

MLK



In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.

Pause

I wasn't invited to my nephew's birthday gathering. He turned eleven today. He is also my Godson. Even if I was an Afterthought Godparent, I was an aunt first. So, either way, family; a special place in my heart.

These things, they make time stand still for a moment. They break my heart and it takes me a moment to catch my breath.

January 1st, 2015.

I was designated driver last night. Zero hangover. This is cause for celebration alone.
Despite this, I didn't get much sleep and decided to declare a section of my afternoon for napping. I napped for two luxurious hours.
I shouldn't have. In that time period, I had four separate dreams that were more closely related to nightmares. This girl rarely remembers her dreams in her old age (ha!) and really could've gone without remembering these. 

My mind, my subconscious never ceases to amaze me. 

For this upcoming year, I will strive to have more faith and less negativity.
I will continue to embrace simplicity and count my blessings. 

I cannot control my dreams in my subconscious, but I can control those in my awakened state.

Ailments aside...

I think it is natural, as you age, to have the number of people you trust, decrease. Right along with the number of friends that one keeps close.
And, there are a bazillion weeks worth of pinterest quotes that tell you to set something/someone free if it is not bettering you (or something like that),blah, blah, blah...right?  

All this self empowerment bullshit, all this "I am stronger than my critics" mumbo jumbo, is it real? Does one feel better after shutting the doors to the so-called negativity and/or criticism? Is it really encouraging us to be cold, emotionless, and apathetic? Don't get me wrong, I am not an advocate for abuse of any sort... or tolerating bullshit.
However, are we skipping that moment where we should be looking at ourselves in the mirror and asking, "Do I like what I see?" Or maybe, just maybe... swallowing our pride and saying,  "maybe it is me, not them." 
Cutting ties just seems to be the easy and unemotional choice these days. 


Winter Ailment Update.

Brandy dose will be considerably more than two tablespoons.
