Been Meaning Too…

I have been meaning to do so much in my life, but never get around to it.  Now life has caught up to me.  I am in my sixth decade now.  I have three grown children and two small grandchildren.  I have not adjusted to being almost old yet. The biggest disappointment in my life … Continue reading

Would I be different

Would I be different if I had a full-time job? I could buy whatever I desired. Pay any bill. Have a car that I knew would start every time I got in it. I can help my children with tuition. I could help them with things they needed and some of what was wanted.  I … Continue reading

Reflections of life later

I thought I was something. I thought I was suppose to be someone. I thought life was going to be anything but this.  What my daughter did to me opened up my world to what reality is. I was better off just ignoring it I thought. Can’t do that any longer.  My aim  is to … Continue reading

Something is wrong

Something is wrong with my life. I thought that by time I got to be in the decade that I’m in, life would be better than it is. I am tired of watching other people live their lives and I’m in the stands of my life watching then live. I’ve had a career.  I am married … Continue reading

Discrimination accepted?

The climate of prejudice in this country, especially in Stark County,has risen well beyond expected or projected.

Coping with The Unfathomable  

Living in small towns has its advantages. The main advantage is that the towns people are able to pretend naïveté to much of what happens in the real world. However, as with all parts of life, reality affects everyone-even in small towns or especially in small towns. This past weekend, our small town was punched … Continue reading

Sit, Squat Or line?

There are certain topics that polite people do not talk about, but often think and question. One such topic, do I sit, squat or line the toilet seat in public? Whether one admits it or not-everyone has to pee or (God forbid) poop in a public facility.  This occurs much too often to me. I … Continue reading

January is not my month!

January is the first month of the new year. Not my favorite month 😩. To start January, I am a teacher so vacation ends😱. Back to school in the cold. But worst, it is the month FASFA nightmares.  FASFA selects randomly certain people to be verified each year.  So tell me why my family get … Continue reading

Just Trying To Eek Out A Living

If you are a regular reader of my words, then you know I am a non-retired, unemployed teacher.  Still, I have to eat and pay bills; therefore, I must work somewhere.  As a direct result, I work at any job that I can find that will hire me.  “Hire me” is the key phrase.  The … Continue reading
