Throwing in the towel?

Haven't felt much like blogging lately.  I feel like the clothing aspect has run its course for me.  I have a better understanding now of what to put on my body to look the way I want to look, and I'm pretty content with that.

The rest of my life is in a degree of turmoil - which seems to be a theme for 2013.  Just what I can think of off hand... I'm finishing school and singing barbershop, and we are starting a business, selling one of out houses, remodeling our primary home, building a bathroom for my next-door neighbor, and dealing with my mom who has been hospitalized for a week and a half at this point, as well as functioning as emergency childcare for my two nieces.

I have more problems than solutions right now.  Which is making me very, very tired.  I'd tell you, my few loyal readers, all about it, but as it turns out...

I have reason to believe that my estranged daughter and/or her chosen set of parents read my blog.

Which seems asinine to me.  You don't want to be part of my life, but you want to read up on it and what? Point and laugh from afar? Judge me some more?  Feel like you're keeping in touch in some way?  If you want to know what's going on, it would involve actual contact.  And ideally that contact would start with some admission of culpability for causing a lot of pain in my household.


So, I'm not deleting this blog just yet, but I have a feeling that it may be in its death spiral.

But, as most tough stages, perhaps this too shall pass.

I hope everything is going well for you, dear reader.  Count your blessings!  And I'll try to remember to count mine.


  1. Sorry to hear you're having tough times. Hang in there.

  2. I understand completely. Social media creates bonds but also can include some bullying- like " laughing from afar " . I would like to stay connected but understand how hurtful this is to you. You can't be constantly editing yourself & then hoping your meaning is not being misconstrued. Or hoping that your readers comments- like mine (sorry)- don't inadvertently hurt your daughter or you. It is tiring. Love & hugs.


Thanks for visiting!
