    My Little Girl Fell Asleep On The Couch

    Tonight she was down --- she wasn't feeling good and though it's been a while since she came to Momma with a tummy ache it felt just like yesterday.  My little girl was weary of fighting all of her battles on her own.  Of raising a family by herself. ...

    They Call Me Captain Sugarbritches

    For a little more than six years I worked offshore in the Gulf of Mexico, out of too many ports to recall, between Aransas Pass, TX and Venice, LA. Like most of the crossroads that I've come to in my life, I made a sharp turn away from one lifestyle full speed ahead into...

    My Empty Heart

    I Miss Larry

    When Larry died I thought that I would too.  But before he died he said that I could only be sad for five minutes and then I had to promise to always feel happy when I think of him and how much he loved me.  He was my big brother, number two of the five of us. ...

    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...

    I Cuss Like A Sailor

    I cuss like a sailor.  I'm not proud and I'm actually the last person that my old friends from past lives would expect to let the expletives fly. Yet, sadly, I'm afraid that I do have a bit of a rep for colorful language on strenuous occasions. ...

    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 ...

    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...

    The Prayer

    Life was sucking like it had never sucked before and I was dealing with the hardest thing that I have ever dealt with in my life.  That's including death in the family, divorce, single parenthood, etc, etc.  In other words this was not my first rodeo. ...

    Lifes Little Challenges

    I'm That Woman With The Skinny Legs

    I have ugly leg issues.  Back in the 70's every time I heard Jerry Reed sing 'Who'll take that woman with the skinny legs...'  I felt like he was singing about me.   I remember the first time that I was made aware that my legs were an eyesore.  Daddy was stationed in...

    Lonely

    These wee hours of the morning -- when I wake up and have guilt free time to myself-- are my salvation.  I remember not so long ago when my only real problem was finding new ways to fill my time and feeling lonely. It took a while for me to learn to be consistant...

    Momma, Can I Call Sue 'Mom'?

    I slapped a big fake smile on my face when my daughter asked me the question that ripped at my heart.  I tried to hide the pain and pretend that my answer was a no-brainer when in fact I felt as if I'd been stomach punched.  I'd hoped she couldn't see my...

    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.

    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...

    I'm Not Liking Myself Much Right Now

    I'm just so angry and it's hard to live like this.  All of my life I have chosen to let anger go and forgive whatever needed forgiving and try harder or move on.  I truly can't do that this time.  Twenty years is too long and I don't have another twenty left in...

    One September Morning

    When I crawled out of bed that morning I'd noticed that I had much fewer aches and pains  than had been the case lately.  I was thinking about what a nice morning it was shaping up to be.  Lucky and Champ, my sleeping chamber roommates, stirred around and both started...

    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'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...

    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...
