Update from the Trenches….otherwise titled WTH is going on?!

January 14, 2017

  My bucket has holes.  Every time I try to fill it with hope, it’s punctured from the bottom by life. This update will have nothing fancy to it other than spilled tears on a page.  I want to keep you in the loop as I do not want to disappear again.  Disappearing is my […]

Holiday Update

December 28, 2016

Sorry I just couldn’t resist.  My name is Holly. It says Happy HollYdays.  Did I ever tell you about the time my Mom made me dress up as Holly Berries for Christmas?  She even made the entire outfit herself.  I was at that awkward age where you’re almost too old for trick or treating but you […]

Look For The Positive

December 17, 2016

3 weeks ago, I had a car accident.   No other cars were involved though so I mostly just had an accident with myself.  This should come as no surprise to anyone. I’m a one woman show.  I don’t even need another car to have a car accident! I’m very good at playing all roles. […]

Still Inching Along!

December 15, 2016

Life does not stand still.  I’ve learned this the hard way over the past 44 years. Many times I have wanted life to pause for me until I was ‘ready’ for whatever had come my way.  I’ve wanted to rewind the good times and fast forward through the bad ones.  I’ve often wished I could edit […]

Inch By Inch

December 9, 2016

Remember how I used to love the turtle? Well it seems even the turtle is moving too fast for me these days. I have a new hero now. The Inchworm   Yes I’m inching along over here.  But it’s progress. I’ve got quite a few things to say today but for those of you that are […]

Where will the Monday take us?

December 5, 2016

So it’s Monday again?? And I have to admit I feel a bit better on this Monday than I normally do.  I’m just not really sure why.  All the same things are going on.  Same issues, same problems.  Same stessors.  Yet for some reason I feel a bit more positive regarding my outlook on those […]

Friday Update and Reality Check

December 2, 2016

As I mentioned to you before, I have a friend (Kiera) who sends me snippets of my own writing every day.  She started reading my blog maybe from the start.  I’m not exactly sure.  But whenever I went silent the first time she began to write me every day.  This is back when I had […]

I am very grateful of course […]

Let’s Be Honest

October 25, 2016

So in my last post I told you the scary situation I’ve fallen into.  I’m creeping up the scales in a dangerously quick fashion and if I’m not careful this regain is going to really take over completely.  I was up to 279 not too long ago.  I lost down to 270 only due to […]

Push the car

October 21, 2016

Have you ever had to push your car because it ran out of gas or broke down?  I’ve had to do this before.  To be honest, though, I had help.  I am not sure I would have been able to do it on my own. I remember someone coming along and telling me to put […]
