Christmas Tree

Ended up purchasing a fake Christmas tree. Decorated with white lights and ornaments purchased after Christmas last year at Bompany Company store. It looks beautiful. Well at least I think so. Even my cat Choo-Choo seems to be impressed. He can’t stop staring at the lights. He’s currently sitting on my curio Queen Anne end table, starring at the tree. I wonder what he’s thinking. Initially, he tried to eat the tree but gave up after not being able to break a piece off. What is it with cats and plants? Thinking it’s a good thing I didn’t purchase the […]

The Mad Rush Begins

My older sister and nephew who recent joined the United States Airforce are coming for the holidays. My sister is coming from Boston. My nephew is coming from Mississippi. They both arrive next Saturday. So I’ve got to start getting things organized. First order of business is to pull out the Christmas lights and ornaments. Then I’m heading off shortly to get a Christmas tree with my younger sister who lives here in Chicago. I put off getting the tree until now as I was debating whether or not to get a real or fake Christmas tree. Growing up, we […]

A Noteworthy Birthday

Today is my Best Guy Friend’s birthday. We met my senior year at the University of Michigan. What began 10 years ago as a romantic liaison has developed into a wonderful platonic friendship.

Strange but true. Strange because to know our complete history one would ask: why still be friends? But the thing that comes back to me time […]

Only time will tell if I’m daring enough. Btw, here’s a blog from a friend of mine — his blog along with a few others inspired me to go ahead and get one set up. We met while working at a start-up that shall remain nameless. Talk about a roller coaster ride. Thankfully I was able to get off without too many bruises. Related posts: On […]

Raw Fear Is What I Feel

Finally, I’ve taken the plunge. The plunge to set up a blog so I can share what some would describe as my secret history. Secret because most people who know me don’t really know me. Much of my inner thoughts, opinions, wants, and desires are never really shared. And if so, only with a chosen few. Oh don’t get me wrong, I’m a talker. Extremely opinionated. But I tend to hold certain things close to my heart. Blame it on my trust issues. A few years ago, I dismissed a group of friends because I never really felt I could […]
