My place to be my true self. I am stubborn, needy & probably a little crazy. I work. I bike. I am creative. I have 2 male urchins. I am happily married to the man who spawned the urchins. I am not always a good girl. I try to be funny, but I probably shouldn't....and I use the .... way too much!
PLEASE DO NOT REBLOG MY PERSONAL PHOTOS.

"She was filled with regret before she died. She felt like she’d failed us as a mother tremendously.""Did she say something to you about it?""She never said anything, so I don’t have any tangible proof that she had regrets. But she had a very bad substance abuse problem. And I know she always wanted to be a good mother. So I separate my mom from her disease. I always imagine that my mom and an alcoholic were living in the same body. And I know that my mom loved us. And that she hated the alcoholic."

Very wise.

5 random things….

Tagged by fit4forty thanks luv!

1. I speak enough Spanish to get my ass in trouble, understand enough German to get by and don’t remember any of my French. Too much weird conjugation.

2. I watched an arrogant EMT student pass out and hit his head when I worked in the ER. We let him lay there for a while. Don’t piss off the help.

3. I have a scar on the palm of my hand from when I was little, I tried to cut a face into a cylinder shaped cheese block. My mother tried to take the knife. It didn’t work out well for me.

4. I love Snoopy, frogs, turtles and pugs. Not necessarily in that order. Like LOVE LOVE! The squealing girl kind of love. Can’t explain it, just do!

5. I met Sir while working in the ER. He was supposed to be a one-night stand….that didn’t work out ;-)

I am willing to bet I glow after all those tests plus being a pincushion.

But its all done. Wait and see. I am betting on it being nothing. :-)

Time to get my wine down Wednesday on!!!

8 vegetables that you can regrow again and again.

Scallions

You can regrow scallions by leaving an inch attached to the roots and place them in a small glass with a little water in a well-lit room.

Garlic

When garlic begins to sprout, you can put them in a glass with a little water and grow garlic sprouts. The sprouts have a mild flavor than garlic and can be added to salads, pasta and other dishes.

Bok Choy

Bok choy can be regrown by placing the root end in water in a well-lit area. In 1-2 weeks , you can transplant it to a pot with soil and grow a full new head.

Carrots

Put carrot tops in a dish with a little water. Set the dish in a well-lit room or a window sill.  You’ll have carrot tops to use in salads. 

Basil

Put clippings from basil with 3 to 4-inch stems in a glass of water and place it in direct sunlight. When the roots are about 2 inches long, plant them in pots to and in time it will grow a full basil plant.

Celery

Cut off the base of the celery and place it in a saucer or shallow bowl of warm water in the sun. Leaves will begin to thicken and grow in the middle of the base, then transfer the celery to soil. 

Romaine Lettuce

Put romaine lettuce stumps in a 1/2 inch of water. Re-water to keep water level at 1/2 inch. After a few days, roots and new leaves will appear and you can transplant it into soil.

Cilantro

The stems of cilantro will grown when placed in a glass of water. Once the roots are long enough, plant them in a pot in a well-lit room. You will have a full plant in a few months.

Fitness stuff….

Went for a run/walk tonight.
Turned into a limp walk.
I must have the mother of all shin splints or one helluva cramp in my shin. Holy hell OUCH!
Plus I got whistled at and cat called….gotta love running in the city. Sigh…..the latter got flipped off.

Via My Modern Metropolis 

Its cold in here.
I need my bangs cut.
I am bored and melancholy. 
My head wants to go create something. 


But I think this is pretty so….there ya go.

I think mine would be “easily distracted by shiny objects”.  What would yours be?

Contact with moving parts can lead to entanglement and cause serious injury.

Not good with emotions,  prepare to have to pull my feels out.
