I honestly thought I had written a story about this night, but I can't find it anywhere so apparently I made that up! Twas the night that my starter died...at night...in the middle of nowhere... and I had to get my car towed 90 miles... and I met this random young tow truck driver named … Continue reading Unsteady Uproot – “Stranded” (Wednesday, July 31st)
It's me again! I know it's been a little bit since I've written anything. I've not done much of interest over the last week. Just livin' the dream over here. I got "promoted" at work which means I now make $1 more an hour. Yaaaaaay....
Got some fabulous news today! I have a (temporary) place to live while I get my crap together! Not super wild about living in another couple's home, because of past experiences but I keep reminding myself that it'll only be temporary until I get solid income and can lease a place of my own. The … Continue reading Unsteady Uproot – “House Hunters” (Sunday, June 30th)

Not an easy thing for me to do. My therapist keeps reminding me that not … Continue reading Unsteady Uproot – “Don’t look down.” (Friday, June 21st)
The day that I consumed half a gallon of ice cream was the day that my friend Kirsten said it was "time to do something.” And by "do something" she meant change something about my life... To say that the last two months have been difficult for me is to put it lightly. These last … Continue reading Tell.
Some people will tell you that there are no second chances in life. Those people lie.
There are boxes in Janelle's empty bedroom. There are boxes and random belongings strewn accross her guest bedroom. There are doodads in her bathroom that need sorting. There is a "to donate" pile in the living room. And there is a "to sell" stack in the garage. I have two more days to widdle down … Continue reading Good Grief.
"Will you actually drive it?" --- --- as texted by my dad after I announced that I would be renting (AND driving) my very own Uhaul. How else was I to haul my belongings off to storage in the middle of a Spring rainstorm??? It's true, though. I am that stereotypical "female driver." What can I … Continue reading “No, I do it.”
