Oh, Sandy!

Sitting here at home listening to the wind howl, the rain beating the heck out of the house and watching the lights occasionally flicker and just waiting for the power to finally go out. I’m bored out of my mind. Wishing that I’d stayed with her instead of coming home where no one cares whether I’m actually here or not. The kids are occupied with their own stuff these days, which is fine by me, mostly. I really don’t like feeling so insignificant. I should have just stayed there instead, seriously. At least I’d have someone to talk to, if

Meh!

It’s been boring around here these days. My girls went to homecoming recently and had a blast! We did the trick or treat thing … I really get irritated by how Halloween itself is made moot by all the activities related to it always happening the week before the actual holiday, but what ya gonna do? Will probably be carving pumpkins tonight or tomorrow. Actually, I vote for tomorrow. I spent most of today working on trying to get motivated to sort through the tons of junk I own and decide what I need to keep and what can be

C’mon! Give a Girl a Break Already…

A little over four months now of job hunting, resume tweaking, cover letter writing … I’d really like a job soon! Is there seriously no one out there willing to give a girl a break as she transitions back into the working world?! Craziness.

Still attempting to work out an equitable property settlement … with a distant hope that between that and securing a job in the meantime I’ll be able to go all

Election Year … Meh!

Another election year is here. I’m not feeling it. Normally, I’d care more and be spending some time reading and evaluating so I can at least be a semi-informed voter. With everything going on in my personal life at this point, and with the general state of government being pretty crappy, I’m just not really interested. I watched some of the debates. I admit I wasn’t crazy about Obama in the last election — and I’m not crazy about him in this one either — but I definitely can’t in any way support Romney. Every election year I feel like

3, 2, 1 Lift Off!

Nah, it’s not as exciting as the title — for you, I suppose. For me — pretty dayum! Yesterday was a fairly decent day as far as days go lately. Most likely because I spent most of it 2 hours away. Days out of the area almost always tend to be better. Go figure. The culmination of it all — and the thing that most excites me — is that for the first time in a very long time, my sleepy state of relaxation allowed my brain the freedom to compose. I can’t remember the last time that’s happened to
