Dream A Little Dream With Me (Or A Big Dream)

This past weekend was another weekend spent with friends. These friends of ours are long time friends. My wife grew up with them and they have been her life-long friends. The best friends to have. I love hanging out with my long-time friends and I love hanging out with her long-time friends. Really, over allContinue reading “Dream A Little Dream With Me (Or A Big Dream)”

Perspective and Perseverance Go Together Like Peas And Carrots

I’ve written some lately about how my perspective about my treatment for depression and anxiety has changed lately. Especially after we took our trip to North Carolina after my boneheaded decision to stop one of my anti-depressants. Once I went back on it, I began to feel better within a couple of days. I talkedContinue reading “Perspective and Perseverance Go Together Like Peas And Carrots”

Celebrating Two Years Sober And Two Years Being On My Journey

Wow! I cannot believe this Friday will mark two years since I’ve had a drop of alcohol and two years since I decided to change my life and I asked for help.

We Are A Masterpiece In Progress…Keep Applying The Paint

I’ve always enjoyed art. I’ve messed around with it, to some degree, my whole life. I like to draw and in the last 5-6 years, I’ve gotten into painting. It’s not something I do all of the time. That is not how my hobbies work. I tend to cycle through a few different things, butContinue reading “We Are A Masterpiece In Progress…Keep Applying The Paint”

Recalibrating Ourselves

There are tools we use in our lives which need to be recalibrated from time to time. These are the really real tools you would use around the house or for a job you work.

I’m Excited…I’m Apprehensive…Wait, What?

There is a song by The Doors called “Not To Touch The Earth”. I would say it is not one of their most well known tunes as it came out with the awesome Celebration Of The Lizard which is a set of poems and songs which all string together to form the Celebration Of TheContinue reading “I’m Excited…I’m Apprehensive…Wait, What?”

I Can’t Always See It, But Keep Smiling

I’ve been a nurse now for over 20 years. About 22 years to be exact. I haven’t worked as a nurse for the last 10 years, but I am still a nurse. This is a title I am very proud of. It took a lot of hard work to get to be one and myContinue reading “I Can’t Always See It, But Keep Smiling”

I’ll Pick Door Number Two

I’m more of a Price Is Right or a Wheel Of Fortune kind of guy. These two game shows would be my choice to watch if given a choice. Price Is Right reminds me of being home sick from school and knowing exactly what I would be watching at ten o’clock. The rest of theContinue reading “I’ll Pick Door Number Two”

A Mask For Any Occasion

Who didn’t, or for that matter doesn’t, like to put on a scary mask and try and scare your siblings or friends around halloween time? Remember those masks? The old ones. I’m talking about the ones that you would put on and, instantly, your skin reacted to the humidity of your breath and the heatContinue reading “A Mask For Any Occasion”
