Hiatus

Hope Wears Heels will be going on hiatus. I’m not sure how long this will last but I need some time off.  I will post on my Facebook page when I begin writing again. Thank you.

An Even Keel

Celia’s birthday is over and I’m back to being on my even keel.  Life feels normal again.  My Feelings are not taking over my entire being.  I do not feel like a raw nerve any more. I hate certain dates.  They are just hard.  The grief circles around, as grief does, and takes me for …

Everything Feels Wrong

There are some days that being a Feeler is hard, messy work.  Endellion is a Thinker.  Treun is a Thinker.  Arcadia is a Thinker.  I surround myself with Thinkers.  I’m the lone Feeler and I think there is good reason for that. I sometimes start drowning in my own feelings.  When one thing, one big …

Last Year vs. This Year

I woke up this morning at 5:30 gasping for breath and shaking with feelings of betrayal, injustice, and righteous anger.  I’d had another dream about Butch and Celia. I was in jail with one of my co-workers and a friend of mine.  Someone outside of our cell was smoking and we were being forced to …

A Day Off

I have vacation time to burn.  We can’t roll it over into the next year so if we don’t use it, we lose it.  I usually use my vacation days for doctor’s appointments for the kids but my company is generous with vacation days.  I had 14 days to use this year, even as a …

Improvements and Stepping In

I think we might have found a combination of meds that are finally helping Shane!  He is on two different meds now.  He takes one of them once a day when he wakes up and he takes the other one twice a day, one late morning and the other mid afternoon.  This combination seems to …

One of Those Moments

Did you ever have a moment where you are just completely over come with awe; you feel the whole of your soul well up with every good thing that is in your life and it just leaks out of your eyes? I had one of those moments last night.  Treun and I were snuggling in …

Making Plans

Treun and I went out with Neil and June last night.  They are fun to hang out with even if it doesn’t happen often.  Their life style is considerably different than ours.  They are just getting ready to go out for the night when Treun and I are coming home to enjoy being alone or …

The Swing of My Hips

They are remodeling our restrooms at work.  They are located right across the hall from my office and now I have to go upstairs to use the restroom.  There is a door that leads to the stairwell and it has a large window in it.  Today, as I was walking toward the door to go …

Bubba Loses His Job….Again

I was talking to Serenity the other day as we got in the car to drop her off at Greta’s house.  She said, “Bubba got fired again.”  I wasn’t as shocked as I probably should’ve been.  Serenity told me that he’d told her the night before and told her not to tell the boys.  I …
