Just Ask Sooz

  Dear Sooz:   My husband and I are having an argument about our 8 year daughter. She is very hairy Sooz, she doesn’t wear skirts, shorts, or dresses because of this problem.   I have told my husband about it, but he says she is too...

The Cost Of Living Up To The Expectations Of Others.

“You are your own best judge.” When you start judging yourself by looking through the eyes of your parents, husband, friends, or boss, you end up running around doing more and more in an effort to gain their approval. It does not take long before...

Your Self Worth.

Don’t go around begging for love. Don’t put yourself in that position. Just know that in this moment you are enough, you are good enough and you don’t need anyone or anything to feel this way. Never get your sense of worth from outside yourself. Don’t...

Rant and Raving about having to get dressed

When sleep becomes my enemy it is looking for trouble.  I have been sleeping just fine lately.  Tonight, tossing and turning all night.  I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow and that is probably why.  I hate commitments of any kind.  I do not care...

Marijuana being almost legal

I am aware that "pot" is legal in certain states. We have friends in Colorado.  There are other states that have either made it legal or decriminalized it.  Here, I live on the Massachusetts/New Hampshire border.  I do most of my shopping in NH due to...

Why should you feel miserable?

Why Slats Grobnik Can't Be Miserable Discovered this jewel of an article written in 1991.  I had to smile while reading this column written many years ago. I think it still reflects the attitude of many today.  Living in their world must be great. ...

Those Who Smile Too Much are Probably Fools

  One of my fondest curb stone theories has recently been confirmed by genuine scientific research. It has to do with why some people are chronically grouchy and depressed while others are always bubbling with enthusiasm and looking at the bright...

Are You Kidding Me? No. I'm An Idiot.

So, for the last few hours, on and off, I've found myself arguing with another Christian about homosexuality, God's love and intent, etc.  What the hell? See?  I'm just........................stupid.  I "argue" with my two-year old, trying to...

Mr. Feelers

About 5 years ago, I discovered what it was like to be a young single adult. The world was and still has been my "oyster". Or however that saying goes. But needless to say..keywords: still single.   I have met a lot of men over the course of my...

I love living alone.

As I have mentioned in a few posts, I have a houseguest.  That saying, one is OK and two is an inconvenience, it true.  I really like having my privacy and living alone.  I can stay up and make noise, cook and never worry about anyone else.  Now, I...

We Must Stop This Immediately!

  Have you noticed that stairs are getting steeper?  Groceries are heavier.  And, everything is farther away. Yesterday I walked to the corner and I was dumbfounded to discover how long our street has become!  This extension work was apparently...

A Frightening Encounter

Do any of you live in a home with six or more people? I do. I have three brothers, as well as a foreign exchange student from Spain (for now). So there are currently seven people in my house. It's not as bad as one might think, but I have had some...

Turn of the Century Humorists

Woman Injured By Bison as She Shoots "Selfie"

I'd post this article, but, my beloved switched my computer back to Windows 7 from Windows 8 and I'm struggling.  Anyway, I laughed out loud at this article.  Not because the woman was hurt, but because of her stupidity.  Oh, hey, let me get right...

Mr. Rebound

MY FAVORITE SCRIPTURE

  My favorite scripture in the Bible is when Moses is on top of Mont Sinai and he has his hands extended to Heaven with his palms open toward Heaven also.  He is talking to God (I don't think this in the King James Version...probably in the Living...
