Can’t Believe I read the whole California Driver Handbook…

September 27, 2016

California Driver Handbook (2016 edition) by Department of Motor Vehicles My rating: 2 of 5 stars Reading a book (or manual) like this is not fun and can be pretty boring. Of course, I read it cover to cover to be sure that I knew if any laws had changed since I am required to take […]


Gave Up Reading: The Shadow of the Wind

September 22, 2016

The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón My rating: 2 of 5 stars Sadly, I think its time to call it. I really had high hopes for this book. Based on recommendations, and praise, I really thought I would be able to dive right in and love every word. But sadly, I have […]


Review: Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

September 22, 2016

Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry by J.K. Rowling My rating: 5 of 5 stars I love all of the stories that add to the wealth of wizarding lore. This is no different. And, being an American, it was very cool to read about the story of Ilvermorny School since I would have surely gone […]

Let me try to explain depression…

September 6, 2016

Depression for someone who doesn’t understand, can be very difficult to explain. Let me try… I feel like everyone exists inside of this oblivious bubble. They are happy within, and are social and content. Outside the bubble are the world’s problems, politics, fears, social anxiety, etc. I feel like I have somehow popped through the […]


Dream: Haunted House

September 6, 2016

Last night I woke up at around 3am unable to move for fear of being noticed by whatever lurked in the shadows of my bedroom. I had just awoken from an unusual breed of nightmare, one that usually tries, but fails, to actually frighten me.  Cris and I had moved into a new home. I […]


Weekend loneliness

September 2, 2016

I am really NOT looking forward to my weekend without Cris and Bronson… Cris has a big event down in LA for someone’s birthday.  Bronson has a weekend with his Nana & Papa (Craig & Susan) to visit Sara, the Zoo, and the Discovery Center. I could clean, goodness knows we need it, and I […]


A hairy problem

September 1, 2016

My stupid hair is falling out… and there seems to be nothing I can do to stop it.  I posted in the last health update about how this had started, hopefully due to stress or my thyroid… but it doesn’t matter.  Either way, it won’t get fixed.  So, on top of the weight gain, and […]
