Surviving April

Today I talk about how I'm stuck.

I don't want to be a person who lives in the past.

On the flip side, if I don't remember life changing events is that disrespectful?

There is a great quote in the Sheryl Crow song “Every Day is a Winding Road” and she asks, “Why am I a stranger in my own life?”

I talk about the day I watched my Mom breakdown upon hearing her father's voice for the first time in a long time. So now I'm worried about playing an old tape that has my Mom's voice.

I don't want to be “THAT GUY” who is always talking about his Mom. At this point, I've spent more time without her than I did with her.

So I get really worried that I spend too much time looking back.

A New Look at the Holidays

Today I share what it was like to go through the holidays ALONE last year.

As horrifying as that might sound, there were some perks.

In this episode we talk about

What happens when you really  decorate the tree

Those really annoying Jewelry commercials with Kevin and Brenda

Who is buying people cars for Christmas? Really?

If you're having a rough time hang in there the holidays are almost over.

If you're having a good time, good. Take mental pictures.

Whambulance

With the election finally over, I'm amazed at how people are reacting. I've voted for people who didn't win. I didn't riot. I didn't cry.

I realized in four years I'd get to try again, and for the most part, the banks own all the politicians, and it doesn't make any difference any way.

But what is causing this? Is the the “everyone gets a trophy” thing?

What happened to losing gracefully?
