Where I Am From

I found this at Musings from the Big Pink who found it somewhere else. There is a template that I followed. I put up a linky at the end of this post if you want to do your own and share it! I'd love to read yours.

I am from the murky bottom of the lake, from Cabbage Patch Kids and Big League Chew.

I am from the smell of a candle, from noisy family dinners. I am from delicious no-bake cookies.

I am from using a buttercup to determine the affinity for butter. I am from misty waterfalls, from rock hopping, from the amazing sight at the top of a 4,000 footer.

I am from dry jokes and thick hair. I am from Larry and Ellen, from Wyatt and Rose.

I am from the insistence that you are wrong. I am from generosity, knowledge, and love.

From digging to China. From not picking up dirty feathers. From surveillance equipment in the back of a Humpty Dumpty truck and getting you face hit by a train.

I am from Catholicism. I am from baptisms and first communions. I am from denying the existence of God.

I am from Boston. I am from Germany, Ireland, and England. I am from boiled potatoes and baked chicken.

From not knowing where Pleasant Street is. From setting up the Taj Ma Tent in the rain.

I am from the low pipes in a cobwebby basement. From piles and piles of dusty boxes. From the irreplaceable family photos stored in said dusty boxes.

How To Simplify Your Life

Okay, so the title is a bit misleading. I don't really know how to simplify my life, but that is what I am going to do. I started by whittling down what I carry around. I really do not need rewards cards from every store. At grocery stores, you can just ask the cashier to scan the store card. Then for the other stores, have you even earned any rewards off of these things? I do from my CVS and AC Moore cards so I kept them and tossed all the others. That was a huge relief.

Speaking of supposed savings, I used to keep all the coupons I got in the mail, just in case. Just in case what? The valvoline place blows up and I have to get an oil change elsewhere? I will certainly need $5 off. So those get recycled. Papers that probably have interesting articles but have been sitting on my table for a month? Gone. And I don't miss them.

I can't watch Hoarders because it gives me a panic attack, but I'm sure they have some great advice. Post any ideas or links in the comments. We could work on this together?

Vacation Blues

It is the end of the fourth day of my vacation. As much as I have enjoyed not going to work, I have not been happy. I have felt guilty about not being at work. I have been feeling very lonely not having anyone to talk to. I have been sad and bored, even when I am doing something.

A couple times I was doing something fun and I just wanted to stop and lay down in bed. I just feel like crying all the time. I thought a vacation would help me shake this depression off. Au contraire, it seems to be making it worse.

So, I'm sitting in a hotel room, watching mtv, and sorta wishing someone was here with me. Anyone would do, really. I wish I was at home, in my bed, crying.

Vibrator Review

This review is of a product of a sexual nature. If you are not interested or are related to me, you might want to skip this one.

Eden Fantasys sent me a Ben's G-Spot Smoothie to me for free to review!

I will admit that I was not crazy about it at first. I thought it was strange. It was a strange shape, it did weird vibrations. I changed my mind when I started playing with the fun features. It has five different vibrations: slow, fast, then three different patterns. They are very fun to play around with. It's nice to be able to switch things up, you know? If you are tired of one, just change it up.

A couple of other things I love about it is the shape and texture. It is curved to fit the contours of your body. You can really feel the whole vibrator. It is easy to hold or just leave in, if that's how you prefer to play. It is made of plastic so it is super easy to keep clean, but is still soft.
Eden Fantasys is a great place to buy sex toys from. Ordering is easy and the packaging is discreet. If you are a Blogger, you should contact them, because they love bloggers!
If you get one, be sure to tell me what you think!
