Bucket List Items

Three items on my bucket list (things I want to do before I die/"kick the bucket") that I've done are going off-roading, going to a Big Ten championship, and going to Savannah, Georgia, maybe in that order but I'm not sure. Off-Roading:┬áLast December my husband and I went off-roading in Las Vegas, Nevada. That was... Continue Reading →

Rushing Around

I absolutely hate rushing around. For one thing, I hate to be late to -- you name it -- dinner, movies, appointments, everything. I get pretty anxious when it's close to the time to leave for any of these places. And I'm a clock watcher. I'm afraid to leave the house by myself, so my... Continue Reading →

Crochet Conquered

I recently took a 5-week crochet class at the local art center, which was basically like an open studio. That is, you go in, work on your project, and the instructor is there if you need help, which I did lol! What made it a class and not an open studio, I think, was that... Continue Reading →


Thank you so much to my new followers and old followers for sticking by me and my blog during the time that I took off. I don't know when I'll post next; hopefully it will be more regularly. So. Since January I've... quit, yes quit my drawing class. I went the first 2 times (it... Continue Reading →

How about that, Anxiety??? I'm talking to YOU! It was great to be able to compare the 2 because... Continue Reading →

Yoga’s Not For Me

I've been saying for a while now that I want to go to a yoga class regularly, but have been too anxious to go. I finally faced this fear about 2 weeks ago. I honestly don't know how I did it, but I showed up (instead of blowing it off and telling myself that I'll... Continue Reading →

I Let Fear Beat Me

Some of you know that I've been wanting to take yoga and martial arts classes, but couldn't do it because of my anxiety. I'm scared of uncertainty and the unexpected, and strangers. Also, my therapist says that I have anticipatory anxiety when an event (like a class) is about to take place. Last week, however,... Continue Reading →

PHP Week 5: Done

I'm sorry I haven't been around, blogging erratically, reading others' blogs whenever I have a minute -- which are few. I don't know how prolific I'll be after today; again, I'll probably be posting here and there. What's taking up my time so much? PHP 4. There are only 3 groups and lunch each day,...

Costume Jewelry Projects

So some of you may know that I used to make costume jewelry, as opposed to fine jewelry (read: Tiffany's), but quit around 2014. It was probably because after some ECT treatments, I forgot how to create a certain type of bracelet and didn't feel like re-learning. Also, the depression I was going through may...
