I Need Some Time Away

I used to love Sunday mornings. There’s a radio station in my city that plays Sunday morning jazz and once DJ woke up and started getting ready for the day, the radio went on in the bedroom and in the living room and we would listen to easy jazz for a good part of the…

I Need to Know…

…how God expects me to just continue doing what I was doing before DJ died without constantly breaking down. I have left my home three times in the last week. I went to Walgreens and almost lost it there. I took my mom to lunch the other day and that went okay which inspired me…

I Need to Stop Crying

My partner of 10 years died on Friday. On Thursday, during our hospital visit, she had such a good day that I went home thinking about where I would put the hospital bed, what kinds of modifications I would need to make to the bathroom, and whether or not I could find a temporary ramp…

I Need a Tape Recorder

So…it’s been pretty damned busy. I’ve been dealing with damaged roofs, damaged cars, insurance deductibles, work, and life. But in between all the shit, we managed to find time to go out and eat!! Yes, we hit up our favorite Mexican food place…you know, the one that was so good but sucked…that one! We walked…

I Need to Get Back to Work

I was on the phone with work non-stop from eight o’clock in the morning until shortly before noon. So, I thought it might be nice to take a break and take my mom and aunt out to enjoy the day. I decided to take them both to lunch for Mexican food. I don’t know why…

I Need a Drink

I really don’t drink much anymore. A glass of wine here and there. I never acquired a taste for beer or straight liquor. After dinner liqueurs are okay but I never made a habit of consuming them, either. All told, I think I drank enough mixed drinks in my college years, and the few years…

I Need to Hit Something

So, last month I bought a punching bag. I’ve always liked the idea of being able to punch something when I get mad, or frustrated, but I’ve never done much with that idea; however, after a conversation with my brother (you know, THAT conversation) about his lack of helping me in dealing with my mom,…
