This past weekend was a pretty rough one for me. I didn't do much. I had so much on my mind that I felt paralyzed and couldn't focus on doing anything constructive. So I spend much of it watching TV, listening to news, surfing the web and hibernating in my house. I didn't see a… Continue reading The Week Begins…
I got home from an 8 hour shift at work this afternoon to be greeted by 3 - THREE ! - fat envelopes in my mail from my attorney. Fuck. One was the discovery from my last run in and lock up incident in Portland. The second...was about a hearing on a motion to terminate… Continue reading Court Dates…Thoughts
It's Sunday and I've felt really down and depressed all damned day. I just re-blogged a post from Sam Dylan Finch of LetsQueerThingsUp.com, and he really nails it with some great advice and suggestions on how to help yourself when you're feeling out of whack like I am today.

Yes, I've been moving carefully this last week. Making damned sure that everything I own is legal and I'm not going to get into any type of trouble...like even get stopped for a traffic infraction. I'm knuckling down hardcore, and I think it's making my bestie a bit uncomfortable. I'm serious, I want nothing to… Continue reading Navigating the Landmines
Whew. I'm finally settled down enough to get a few words out on this blog. My life has been one fucking crisis after another for the past 2 weeks. First it was the drunken bum I had to take out the restraining order on last week and all my anxiety and angst over that whole… Continue reading Life Just Got Very Real….
I didn't get much more than an hour of sleep last night at my friend Linda's house. The dogs did sleep pretty good though, and that was nice to see them so relaxed there. They cuddled up to me snugly and zoned right off into la-la land. Lulu was particularly concerned with how upset I… Continue reading …Continuation from Last Night
