1 Big Sister + 3 Not So Little Brothers

Yesterday, I texted my Sour Patch Kid* just to check in and see how he’s doing. This is a new habit for me in our relationship.

I have 3 little brothers now: My 3 Brosketeers**.

There was a time when my SPK and I didn’t see eye-to-eye.

He wanted to be the #1 sibling and I was like, “Nah”.

Not So Random Thoughts On: Release

Mercury’s Retrograde is over! Yay!

Mercury’s Retrograde is a time of confusion. Electronics don’t work. Thoughts are fuzzy. Words don’t come out right. There’s miscommunication. Just a whole slew of random complications.

Yesterday morning on the way to work, my scooter crapped out on me 4 times! In traffic. My scooter is part electric. “Thanks a lot, retrograde!”

But, it’s over. {sigh of relief} Today is a new day free of the planetary fuckshit that has been driving us all crazy the first month of the new year.

Lyrically Speaking: “friends… how many of us have them?”

“Now, you can look the word up again and again, but the dictionary doesn’t know the meaning of ‘friends’.”*

I’ve been thinking a lot about friendship. I was once told, “You give titles away too easily,” and I was offended. But, they were right. I do.

Well, I did.

There’s the Door (When You’re Ready to Leave)

I had a good conversation with my sister yesterday and a similar one with my husband just now and the point was: letting go of things that no longer serve you.

You know… the people you feel obligated to… the friends you keep because of history… family members… just a bunch of dead weight and negative emotions bringing you down…

As one of my favorite memes says: Chill, homie. You need to let that shit go.
