Weight Loss and a Liar Amongst Us

Filed Under: Food and Drink

This is a two part post since what I had planned on writing about has been usurped by something else; I hate it when that happens. Part one is about me losing weight. Part two is about my dad. Weight Loss Weekend before last, I decided I was going to lose weight. Again. And to be clear, the ...

Cloak and Dagger Post

Filed Under: Uncategorized

This is one of those posts that will probably be annoying to you since it's all "I'm going to talk about something but I'm not going to really give you too many details since I don't want to screw myself over". But, it's also one of those posts I have to write since I need to ...

Fulfilled Expectations Make Me Sleepy

Filed Under: Life

Ask and ye shall receive and stuff, y'all. Yesterday went just like any normal day. Breakfast, lunch, nap [Ollie. Not me.], Tucker home from work and then dinner. After that, I worked for a little bit while Tucker bathed the kids. At some point, I lay down on the couch and the entire room started spinning. I guess the ...

Pillow Kitty Says Oliver Should Sleep More

Filed Under: Life

Why, yes! Yes this is another post about not getting a lot of sleep and it's also a post where I whine about Oliver not sleeping. Again. Cause that's the main thing coloring just about everything I think about these days. To be fair to Tucker, instead of going for a run this morning, Tucker went in and ...

I’m Awake…That’s About It

Filed Under: Life

Being up super early is a double edged sword. On the one...edge...I'm up and can't go back to sleep so I might as well get the day's work out of the way. The other edge/side/whatever is I've been up [off and on] since 2am and I'm tired. I'm really, really tired. I'm tired enough that I could ...

I Want a Nightlight Because Monsters are Real

Filed Under: Life, Mental Health

My mom has always said I have a very active imagination. I have always said my brain just doesn't know when it's in its best interest to shut down. Because of my active imagination or my brain's lack of self-preservation, I don't enjoy dark spaces. Or mirrors in the dark. But I've already told you about that quirk. ...

The Fight You Must Fight

Filed Under: Mental Health

I'm often flippant about mental illness. Come on. I have a blog named "Taste Like Crazy". How can I NOT be "lacking in seriousness; characterized by levity" about it? And, if I wanted to be completely honest, I'd say that "levity" is a coping mechanism and we all have them. Mine is making light of serious situations ...

Customer Service and I Fired My Shrink

Filed Under: Mental Health

I fired my shrink today. How's that for an opening line? I knew from the first time I met him [actually before I met him] that he most likely wasn't going to be a good "fit" for me; he was almost 30 minutes late for our initial appointment. Not exactly a wonderful first impression. I think I've already written ...

May Your Day Be Boring

Filed Under: Life

The first of the month for me is always the time when I coast; the end of the month is when I go insane since I'm a habitual procrastinator. While the rush to the deadline sucks, the day after and the relief of having it done is usually more than enough payoff. Today the goal of the ...
