Is It Everything You Dreamed It Would Be?

Is It Everything You Dreamed It Would Be?

This is, verbatim, a journal entry of mine from January 17th and 18th, 2016, back when I did a lot of writing prompts. It’s interesting to look back on now. Another writing prompt I saw online was to list out 100 things that you want. At first I thought that sounded kind of selfish, but then I thought about it and realized that things you want don’t have to be material, and wanting things doesn’t indicate a lack of God’s…

Nocturnal Musings #14: Up All Night

Nocturnal Musings #14: Up All Night

Although the current time is no longer nocturnal, I was literally up all night and started thinking about maybe writing a blog post in the predawn hours, so I’m going to count it anyway. Yes, I was up all night. And I’m obviously still awake, even though it’s after 10 am. Maybe thinking through and writing down what is on my mind will help me pinpoint why I’ve been awake and will help me get to sleep. This will be…

Recovery Road

Recovery Road

Recovery is a tricky adventure. You can take ten cases of the same surgery and no single recovery is ever the same. There are certainly some trends, but never the exact same set of circumstances. I’ve had five surgeries total now, but the road to recovery has been different for all of them. Take my pelvic surgeries for my endometriosis. I’ve had three of them, and all three had different recoveries. The first one resulted in a UTI (which I’m…

Reason to Sing

Reason to Sing

Coping with multiple chronic illnesses is challenging. Very challenging. It’s hard to know how you will feel one day to the next. When my husband asked me if I was going to feel well enough to get to my doctor’s appointments in a few days, I had to remind him I don’t know how I’m going to feel five minutes from now, much less five days from now. As another example, I was fine for most of the day today,…

#iblogbecause

Why do I do this? I’m not a professional writer. I’m not even really an amateur writer. I haven’t taken an English class since high school (although that’s because I tested out of all three required college classes by scoring a 5 on the AP English Literature exam, so I’m not exactly a hack…) I’m not selling anything. I haven’t been commissioned by anyone to write anything. I just write.

Nocturnal Musings #1

Nocturnal Musings #1

Can’t sleep. Painsomnia again. I guess part of the reason that Thursday was such a good pain day for me is because I literally spent 23 hours in bed. It just happens once every week or two as a result of my body rebelling against life, so of course I wasn’t in pain since I wasn’t up at all. But since I was moving about the house yesterday, now my pain is ramping up again, keeping me awake into the…

A Tale of Seven Kitties Part One: The Adults

A Tale of Seven Kitties Part One: The Adults

A change of pace. Time for feline awareness! In all seriousness, it’s a good topic to bring up. The ASPCA estimates that there could be up to 70 million stray cats in the U.S. In addition, 35% of pet cats are acquired as strays. We are the crazy cat people of the world. We have 7 cats, 6 of whom were strays. How on earth did we get so many? Time to tell their story! Since we have so many, herein…
