Days One and Two

I am feeling scared. Feeling completely inadequate. Lacking sufficient knowledge to even begin to know what to do to help Christie save her life. When I found out that Christie was coming, my plan was to love and encourage her. Give her a place to stay until she got back on her feet. Show her…

Tell Me I’m Not A Fool

I have a banger in my house. And I didn’t even know what that meant until tonight, when I welcomed her into my home with open arms. Tell me that I’m not a fool. Christie is my niece. She is twenty-eight, and has two precious children. She is a beautiful woman with dark brown hair…

Nothing At All

I knew that it would eventually happen. I live in a small town. There is one Wal-Mart and one grocery store. You can’t buy groceries or get gas or pretty much do anything without running into someone you know. That’s just how it is living in a small town. It’s expected. And, knowing that it…

The Cars In My Life – Part One

Continuing with my questions from Joey, he asked “What was your first car? What was your favorite car when you were young?”.

TAMMY!

One of my bosses and I have a love-hate relationship. I love him — he hates me. Well, maybe he doesn’t hate me. But I apparently annoy the hell out of him. Without even trying. And even when I try to not annoy him. And that’s not good. It’s not good at all. TAMMY! That’s…

More Questions From Joey

Continuing on with my questions from Joey – In what ways do you think I am like you? Not like you? Well that’s an easy one. All of your good stuff – that’s from me. All the not so good – obviously from your dad. Seriously though, the traits I am most proud of in…
