Look, I know I’m pretty much a loser, and never have time to even like a post, let alone read it, but I really am doing the very best I can, honestly. You don’t have to like me or read me, and I’m okay with that. I don’t get much of a readership; I mostly do this for myself, to challenge myself.

It really doesn’t make a difference. Well actually it does, because it might interrupt my continuation of the blog challenge (I did actually pull out of the challenge). But I’ll continue as long as I can, just because. It’s no secret I’m having neurologic issues. I can’t reach for the word I need to get across what I’m trying to say, I get lost a lot, even going to places I live near, we’re talking less than a mile away. Somewhere along the way, I make a wrong turn and one evening goes from a 10-minute errand into a 2 1/2 hour nightmare. So before you read on, you might want to consider all of that info.

  1. Hello,

    You are a follower on my older blog, which is no longer active and will be taken down fairly soon. I would be delighted if you would maybe check out the new blog I have:


    Maybe you’ll consider following this instead, on Bloglovin’ or other social media. I’m also keen to work at collaborations with other bloggers if it is ever of interest to you too.

    Many thanks,

    Blogger and BMS Student


    • Hey Emma,

      I’ll follow you anywhere, and I’d love to figure out some sort of collaboration with you (the pen’s been rather dry at the moment!).

      Warm regards,


    • Oh hey Andrea!
      I’ve been thinking about you! Lost your phone number or I would’ve called you. I’m doing well and I hope you are too. You have a wonderful summer as well, okay?
      HUGS, Chris


  2. Good luck with your life challenges as well as with the blog challenge. Crocheting is very therapeutic. I nkit and crochet and found it truly gave me an out when things were difficult in my life. Looking forward to meeting more bloggers.


    • Sandy, thanks so much for the words of encouragement and for stopping by. I think the blog challenge will be mostly fun this year, because I’m more prepared! I wish you luck as well, and you can bet that I’ll be stopping by to see you often.

    • Wow, thank you! I’m so glad my website does that for you. ABG — way cool. You rock on too, girlfriend. Always. Have a great day. ❤


  4. I really like your site. I especially like your sentence “All about recovery from the past, from life, from everything.” I am working on recovery from Gambling. But realize that perhaps co-dependency was my first addiction. Over-eating is one also. I have been reading several books this past 2 weeks on healing and recovery. I think the 12 steps is a good place to build a foundation, but I am adding other information to this for recovery. I like your manifesto, and am going to start writing one out for myself. Thank you for sharing and I can see how hard you work, you are a winner. Love to you.

    • Overeating is one of mine. I also have to be careful with overspending. But co-dependency seems to be at the core of everything, which is why I go to Al-Anon and not the other recovery programs so much. I LOVE reading and also add other things to my recovery. Go for it. Go for broke. (no pun intended). Judith, thank you so much for stopping by, and I love it that you love me! Right back atcha. Keep on keepin’ on.


Lay it on me!
