Ramblings of an Average American Girl


I am at a crossroad and I don’t know which way to go. Am I happy on this road? Happy enough to stay on it and go straight? I’m not really unhappy. I’m in a funk…but I think that might be all me. I mean it’s all in my head, it’s not being created by the actions of anyone else. I can go left…the curiosity is almost more than I can bear. Can I go straight without always wondering what was to the right? And if I don’t stay straight, and I don’t like it can I make a U-turn and come back to where I am? I don’t think so. The road ahead is not paved, it is just a beaten path that I can change if I want too. Right?


It is never too late to become who you always wanted to be…

Why do I feel l…

Why do I feel like I am waiting for something to happen? No matter what job I have, or where I move, it is never enough. I get bored…restless. I know I am destined for something amazing. What is it? And how long do I have to wait for it?

My Memory

Images and memories get filed away in our brains in a certain way. For me, for example, events in my life are divided by several different events that have effected my life.  My daughter asks, “Mom, when did we go to Chicago for that….blah, blah, blah?” And I think back, “Was that before my dad died?” It helps me to locate the memory in the file cabinets of my brain. My dad died just before my 28th birthday, so anything post 28 years old is after my dad died.  I have so many events, both triumphant and tragic that have attached themselves to the way I remember or recall my life. My daughter was born when I was 15 and just finishing my freshman year of high school. So I recall events from high school by storing them before she was born or after. (She is now 22 and the most amazing, beautiful woman I know.) Before or after my son was born? Before or after The Divorce? Before or after The Move? I do not remember things by date or my age; but by the most memorable events that have altered my life, and changed me, bettered me, or hurt me the most.
