Words of Wisdom

Posted in StoryChick24

I have a board on Pinterest that I have called “Words of Wisdom” where I stash all of the quotes that inspire me. It is a treasure trove of ways to lead a life that I can love and be proud of. The only problem is that I pin things to this board and then more often than not forget about them. I started thinking about this because I had a slew of not so great days where I was down on myself and I could have used some of the advice that was tucked away waiting for me to…

Pregnancy- As Explained By Mr. Perfect

Posted in ChickTwenty

What it’s like being pregnant, written by Mr. Perfect himself, my husband. Prepare yourselves, ladies: The hardest part is not being able to drink my husband’s drinks. It just gives me so much pleasure to drink his beloved sodas. Now that I am pregnant, I can’t because I am not supposed to have caffeine when I’m pregnant. Speaking of things I can’t have, sushi. Something I used to have probably twice a week, now I can’t have it at all. Talk about weird feelings- How about having a human growing inside of your stomach? You go 26 years of your…

No Ragrets

Posted in Chika12

Yesterday was my father’s birthday. He would have been 95 years old but he lived well for the 93 years he was on this planet. Today, my father-in-law, is going through the process of letting go of his well lived 90 years. Both of them, though, spent a great deal of time reviewing and reliving as many of their past experiences as they could remember – eager to tell their stories to all who would listen, anxious to impart the life lessons they learned along their journey. Yet, while each was/is reluctant to leave the vibrancy of living, both of…

Dear Mr. Crab

Posted in Chic#5

This is my life… Dear Mr. Crab, Someone once told me, more like introduced me, to the “crab in a bucket (barrel, basket, pot…)” theory.  If you think about a group of crabs crammed in a bucket, individually, they are all capable of climbing out – I mean they all have a set of pincers that can be used as a stronghold on just about anything.  But, when one gets close, the remainder of the crabs will recklessly grab, pinch, yank, and pull until that lone crab falls right back into the abyss, all while the others cheer…their goal, to…

Hoarding Whore

Posted in justachik1

I’m not even sure when it happened.  I always swore I wasn’t.  But, gradually, over the years, more and more things accumulated.  And, then suddenly, one day I took a step outside of myself and looked around. “Holy fuck! I have a lot of shit.” Over the past three years, I have moved twice and there’s a third move in the relatively near future.  I do not want to move this stuff again.  I can’t.  I think I need help. I know I’m not alone in this.  Hell, there’s even a show dedicated to it.  I also know I’m not…

New Journeys

My baby started high school this month.  Obviously she’s not a baby, but she’s MY baby. My parents were and are great parents but never gave me advice. They more or less threatened my life and told me to be good and graduate. Here’s my advice I gave leading up to her first day of high school. Be open-minded. There are a ton of opportunities in high school. Some that you may not be accustomed to. Strongly consider them as the may help mold the way to your success. Stay focused. There are distractions. Friends and boys. I am willing…

What’s Your Favorite Book?

Posted in StoryChick24

“What’s your favorite book?” This is one of my least favorite questions to be asked because I don’t have an answer for it. I don’t have a favorite book. It is impossible to choose. I’ve read too many wonderful books in my life and to choose just one as a favorite isn’t something I can do. Nor is it easy to give a top 2, 3, 5 or 10 list. There are too many factors that go into making those choices. Part of the trouble of picking a favorite comes because I find myself tailoring the list to the person…

PSA On Behalf of Pregnant Women

Posted in ChickTwenty

-THIS IS A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT FOR YOU RUDE ASS BITCHES WHEN DEALING WITH A PREGNANT WOMAN- But first, a quick update on past posts: 1. I still have a filthy mouth despite the fact that my little 4 month girl fetus can hear me. 2. I FINALLY stood up to Old Lady Bully Daisy after another typical encounter. Then she fell and broke her leg that day and I sent her a card. 3. My Perfect Husband is technically 1 for 1 on the baby making stats. We have only had one “uh-oh” sex session, which got me pregnant.…

Life Is A Sport

Posted in justachik1

So I don’t know if it’s the moon phase, my hormones or just this time of year, but I’m overly emotional these days.  You know the days?  When every little thing makes you a little weepy?  Yesterday, I had two episodes.  One was just an incredibly sweet story about a husband and wife and the lengths they go for one another.  The other was a damn commercial.  Yes, a commercial. In my defense, it was during the Olympics and I was already on emotional overload watching those athletes continue to demonstrate all that’s good about sports and teamwork and life.…
