Stuck in the Overwhelm

I don't know if the impending snowstorm and Polar Vortex that is expected this week, the lack of sunlight or what, but I've been stuck in the overwhelm for a while now.  I know I am not the only one who feels this way. I know most people are experiencing some level of this, I can see it on social media and on the faces

Dementia is a Soul Sucking Fiend

Dementia is a soul sucking fiend, there is just no way around that fact. My mother had dementia and it just keeps getting worse and worse. Which is of course what it would do. Dementia doesn't get better. It just keeps getting worse. My mother suffered brain damage from anoxia back in 1970, she was 29, (you can read more about her demetia here and

This Ain’t No Highlight Reel

Be warned, this ain't no highlight reel. My friend Kathy, from The Junk Drawer, posted a video on Facebook this morning. Kathy tends to post more cats and stuff from Reddit than sports so I figured there must be more to it than sports. The video is an interview with Nick Foles after winning the Super Bowl where he offers some inspiring words of advice.

There’s a Mouse in my Car!!!!

There's a mouse in my car!!! WTF!?!?!? I haven't actually seen the mouse, but I can hear it and it's terrifying. A few months ago I was driving my daughter to school because the bus never came. As we were getting on the practice freeway (35E for those of you who aren't from the Twin Cities, but for those of you coming here for the

When the Bough Breaks

Rock-a-bye baby, on the treetop, When the wind blows, the cradle will rock, When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall, And down will come baby, cradle and all. Rock-a-bye baby, on the treetop Who the hell puts their baby, along with the cradle, in a fucking tree? They don't. It's a metaphor. For mother (or father, primary caregiver - just so I don't offend anyone reading this who isn't

Thanks President Trump

Thanks President Trump. Because of you, I've successfully tuned out. Since 9/11 I've been plugged into the news. It's either been on in the background or I've checked multiple sites throughout the day to see what's going on. I read all the news sites, and spent a fair amount of time on opinion pieces. I clicked on the fake news and the click bait and

I Saw The Bloggess!!

I saw the Bloggess!! (an unintentional homage to Jenny Lawson) I don't mean to be a name dropper but I've seen my share of celebrities over the years. When I was 16 my parents sold our house to Garrison Keillor. I had no idea who he was but my grandfather sure thought he was the shit! I used to babysit Nick Swardson of Grandma's Boy and Reno 911

The Dentist

Image via Wikipedia It's not just me who is having a hard time coming up with stories. My local news station, KARE, reported on a Wisconsin man who was stopped in his car by police because he was changing clothes while driving. He had been to the state fair and was sweaty. He was given a warning. This is such a non story I can't

Who Pays for these Studies?

Bullying harms kids' mental health In identical twin study, targeted kids more likely to develop depression This was on the front page of MSNBC this morning. The article goes on to say that by studying twins, researchers have determined that kids who are bullied have more depression and anxiety. No shit, really?
