prophetic Tale – In my Name

I cannot even begin to count the number of those whom have asked me over the years if I “know” the meaning behind my name.  It is really more of a tragic tale if you were to ask me. Therefore the answer is yes. I am more than well aware of the fact I was …

relax Tale – Day of Rest

Since I had just returned from Medical Leave at the end of May I opted NOT to plan an annual vacation for this Summer. During those 4 weeks I did enough lounging to last me a lifetime. And eating. Aside for the lone walk around the block my Dr allowed me per day, all I …

not it Tale – Who am I?

I am definitely not my mother’s daughter…easy-going, free-spirited, Reiki Master, Massage Therapist.  Nor my brother’s sister…also a Reiki Healer, Yoga Instructor, Social Worker, philosophical. No. Not it. Sooo…Who am I? I suppose I am more my father’s daughter. Serious, yes slightly sarcastic, but straight-laced, perfectionist, and always concerned for others. The difference is my father …

another boxer Tale – My lovely Lady

I’ve been worrying about my poor old coot as of late. She is feeling not so great again, and is just days away from the procedure which the Vets says should cure her ills. Not that she ever complains. Bosco will pace and whine if ever he is unhappy or unwell. My lady, will just …

dentist Tale – Mr. Thirsty and Me

It may not be funny my eldest gal is a Biology Major with a concentration in Dental Hygiene. What IS funny, is her mother has not been touched by a Dental Hygienist in over 20 years. Once upon a time I was being hacked by a hygienist, and I accidentally slapped her hand away from …

lucky Tale – Sets of Three

After having heard of my wonderful washer news, a co-worker advised all things happen in sets of three. Well I had been counting my three as follows:  Broken washer, $900 truck repair, and Layla’s labia resculpting. Guess not, since precisely three days after the installation of my brand spankin’ new washer, this thing shit the …

sunday Tale – Let’s to Church

One thing I have always noticed about Church is attendance plummets significantly during the Summer months. What I observed during today’s service at our Church could explain why this may be. First of all, there is no Children’s School. While the youngsters usually attend part of the worship, they are dismissed after the Pastor conducts …

tuckered out Tale – Too much To Do

I knew I was going to have a long day ahead of me. Although I didn’t quite realize exactly HOW tired I would be. I really did have too much To Do all week long starring in this Dramedy of my so-called Life. Filing insurance claims after the damage caused by my former washer was certainly more …

routine Tale – It’s all Good

So things are back to normal around my crib again. Well, I don’t know if normal is exactly the correct word to use when describing the flow in my household. But at least we have a routine again. Albeit a new one. The dogs and I are presently sleeping in the living room. I upon …

aftermath Tale – Time of Relection

The saga with the haunted washer continued even after I called my insurance company to file a claim… I surmised they’d maybe find a few feet of carpet needing replacement. Imagine my horror when my mother, who had offered over-see the appraisal, phoned me at work to relay the damage they discovered was so significant, …
