    I'm Going To Learn To Get Happy And Stay That Way

    I think that when I'm miserable it is because I've been thinking about mysery.  It's a given that when things go wrong most people tend to think about them -- it's really kind of hard not to.  Thinking about setbacks in life and dwelling on difficult...

    The Mindset Of The Masses

    This is what I believe.  I believe that whatever you believe will come to pass.  If you believe that you are a victim, you will attract those who will victimize you.  If you believe that you are loved and wanted, you will attract those who will love and want you...

    No Second Date For Me

    I've never been known for learning life's lessons the easy way and learning how to date again back in 1975, when I was 23, was no exception.  I married my preacher's son when I was 17 (almost 18 and he was 22).  Five years later he left me to be with a dispatcher at the police...

    I Did It For Love

    It was the summer of 2005 when I did what I NEVER thought that I would do.  I was raised never to do it and it was vigorously stressed to me by my mother throughout my entire childhood that it was wrong, and nasty, and that she would be very disappointed should I choose to...

    I Showed My Butt...again

    My ex, Kass, had a stroke in 2006 that left him handicapped.  So, when I started taking care of him three years ago I had the tub in my bathroom torn out (it was about to fall out anyway -- yes, I'm trailer trash) and I had a shower built in it's place that I designed...

    That Booger'snot Funny

    I was freaking out over the fact that I had just gotten a $616. power bill for one month's service and I was not a happy camper.  So in the spirit of not getting another bill that there was no way in hell that I could pay, I suggested that maybe the kids ...

    Throw Open The Doors Of Opportunity

    When opportunity comes knocking in the form of a brilliant idea or new invention it's pretty hard to open the door to it if you're poor.  That's why poor people who 'make it' also make the news -- there's just not that many of them.  One problem is the...

    Spreading Some Happy On My Slice Of Life

    I'm pasting a new label on my jelly jar. I'm going to call it 'Happy'. I'm re-naming my bread as well. I'll call that 'Life'. I'm going to spread a little happy on my slice of life every morning and gulp it down -- with milk.
