    It Seems Like Just Yesterday..

    ..I was able to run endlessly.. I used to be able to run for miles and miles and love every step of it. Since my injury, my legs haven't been the same though. :( It's been almost 4 years, and I still feel the pain when I run. It sucks. Running used to give me theis feeling of...

    But My Brain Still Can!

    What's that about? A few weeks ago I was out with my boys; one of 'em jumped over our cooler while he was running and so I did to. Carried that fricking bruise for DAYS. I used to run, and hurdle, and.....and I couldn't even clear a cooler. What is up with that...

    I Hate Insurance Companies

    When I was younger I had some nice cars.  A couple of mustangs and then my pride and joy.  My 1980 Toyota Supra.  It was a car way ahead of its time.  I could do 95mph in 3rd gear and still had 2 more to go.  I drove everywhere as fast as traffic would...

    Can't Do It All Anymore

    I'm feeling overwhelmed. I have so many things I need to do just to survive and I just don't have enough time and mostly enough energy to get it done. I have a non life threatening illness that saps my strength, my home is somewhat of a wreck (and I hate living this way). I need...

    A Limited Shelf Life

    I still remember the first dance costume I ever had when I was just four years old.  I would put it on and wear it around the house every chance I got.  Even from the age of four, I knew that I loved to dance, and for the next 24 years, it was the only thing I truly...

    Whn I Was Younger.......

    I use to wear sun dresses & pretty skirts. When I was younger I wore jeans & pretty tops.... I don't do that anymore. Now I wear bulky tops that hide my assets. Joggers that are loose around my legs. I NEVER wear dresses or skirts, too easy for a man to toss 'em. I don't...

    It Was All Ruined For Me.

    I really want to do things that I used to... but I can't, at least for awhile (I hope). He ruined that for me. 90% of the things that I loved have some sort of a connection to him and I don't want to remember. The memories all just hurt too much... I can't listen to music I used...
