I’m presently sitting in the customer waiting area of an auto dealership waiting for a part replacement and oil change. I am finding more and more I hate sitting around strangers. Every time I clear my throat, you suddenly feel eyes on you like you have the plague. Which makes me want to turn around … Continue reading Public spaces
Sick off all the fear
You’d think after two years of this pandemic crap, I would have gotten used to all the upheaval by now… Tuesday at work I felt like crap most of the day. I had gotten up and gone to the gym, felt fine. Got home, showered and headed to the office and… felt blah. The feeling … Continue reading Sick off all the fear
I’m still here
Sorry I haven’t shared a post recently but to be honest I didn’t feel like there was anything I wanted to share with the world that was important enough for the blog. I record entries often in my personal journal, but those are things I don’t feel like sharing with strangers. Which brings up a … Continue reading I’m still here

The Christmas Spirit
I pulled out our Christmas tree this afternoon. I felt this year we had to have it up. Last year with all the Covid crap and News I wasn’t in the Christmas spirit. I decided that this year it would be in our living room. In the past we have put it up in our … Continue reading The Christmas Spirit
Today starts 100 days since I have smoked a cigarette. Frankly, I am amazed that I have reached this point. I had expected a hard fight and relapse from stressful situations. Except in the beginning where I would equate certain activities with smoking, it hasn’t been that hard on me physically. It was mostly mental … Continue reading 100 Days
