Greetings, hello, hiya, howyadoin? I know, it's been a month or so since I've written anything. I get the notifications from WordPress, nudging me...hey it's been a while since you've posted anything...yeah, yeah, WordPress I know. Quit being a nag, k? Life update - I'm almost 8 weeks post total hip replacement and I'm about… Continue reading Here I go again
I've written before that someday I'd like to get a tattoo that reads "Scars are like birthmarks but with better stories". Scars are funny. Some are on the outside, some are on the inside. Some scars heal and lighten on their own, and some scars are dark, rippled, puckered and pronounced forever. We often don't… Continue reading Another scar….
Today is one week post op from having total hip replacement surgery and I swear it feels more like a month from my point of view. There have been good days and bad days, a little depression, a few tears but every day gets a little bit better. I've started physical therapy and that is… Continue reading Hello Betty!

I don't need anyone to pay my bills or take care of my home or anything else. I'm like a stubborn toddler with a spoon and a jar of peanut butter..."I… Continue reading Lil Miss Independent asks for help

Yep, you heard right folks. I'm 48 years old and I'm having a full hip replacement later this summer. I've suffered from hip pain for the last five years or really if I'm honest, it's been off and on for the last ten years but it's progression has ramped up in the last five.

Twitter. It seems be be getting a new push and is a super active and dare I say hip place to be. Now, I've been on Twitter for over ten years in various account manifestations. I started my very first account after breast cancer and as a means to connect to other breast cancer survivors,… Continue reading My love affair with…
So I cancelled my date with the guy last weekend. I also told him I wanted to go back to being just friends. I explained that he had opened my eyes to my inability to trust and the triggers (how I hate that word) that he spurred. He reluctantly agreed. How does one go about… Continue reading Bandaids over Bullet holes
