Reasons To Read This Blog

I take Valium and sometimes I drink vodka; both actions as a daily lifestyle should piqué some curiosity.

I have what I consider to be a crazy life filled with humor and curiosity and wonder and sarcasm and anxiety and frustration.

I have been happily married to my best friend, my Sweet Husband, for fifteen years. We have no children.

I am the only child of my parents’ 40 year marriage. My mother is batshit crazy bipolar and due to a car accident during a manic episode, she is now a home bound paraplegic. If she’s awake, she is smoking pot; prescribed medication is hit or miss with her.  My father is a workaholic, alcoholic, Jesuit trained former Catholic, Vietnam veteran of the United States Marine Corps., recovering from a horrible bout of cancer (50 years of smoking does that to people). My parents both adamantly deny any fault, influence, or predisposition to my alleged drug and alcohol use.

I am writing as a part of a personal challenge.  As a process of self introspection and personal growth, I have decided to do all the “grown up” things I read about; get healthy, focus on goals, follow dreams.  I tried that before and this blog is part of me dusting myself off and trying again.  You see, before, I was the Director of Communications and Marketing for a  heinous, evil devil boutique private equity firm.   Currently, I am unemployed by choice, as I quit my job in January 2012, to save my soul and life and moral compass.  Unfortunately, this IS a small world after all and I live in a particularly pretentious city, and when you worked for the devil, you seem to see evil everywhere.

What a drag it is getting old.
