Just a Spoonful of Psycho

This week has literally been FILLED with doctor’s appointments for myself and for the kids, which means I have put over 200 miles on the car in 4 days and I feel like I haven’t had a moment to sit and breathe!  But yesterday brought great news in regards to my health, so that is a huge weight off the whole family’s shoulders and now we can focus on the medical issues going on with the oldest boy.  Having to go through all kinds of tests at 19 was not my wish for my child, and I am very worried because it was at the exact same age that my autoimmune issues reared their ugly head.  Lots of blood tests, more heart tests and lots of shaken nerves and long nights has been the theme of our Fall.  So with fingers crossed, positive thoughts and lots of cozy nights with…

Remember, YOU are the fairest of them all! – Featuring Bee Designs @ Enchantment

Just a Spoonful of Psycho

For years now I have been thankful that I didn’t have a girl to try and raise in this world with all the fat shaming and body hating that seems to enter into every facet of our lives.  I have been thin, I have been heavy, I have been fit and I have been somewhere in the middle, and it didn’t matter the size, the problems with my body were always there; and the more I hated the body I was in, the more it revolted against me and the more I hated it.  One day I made a choice to change everything about my life, including what I said in the mirror, because I learned I had to love myself first and foremost.  You have to look in the mirror and tell it who is the fairest of them all, YOU!

Fairest of them all

Wish someone would have told me there would be days like this – Featuring Aphrodite @ Tres Chic

Just a Spoonful of Psycho

Though my son did all of his “Senior” stuff last year, other than graduate, for some reason I am suddenly slammed with all kinds of emotions as the reality of him graduating and leaving home hits me.  As we were driving to school the other day a new song by Macklemore and Kesha came on the radio and I found myself staring at my son as he drove wondering if he knew that now and for the next couple of years, were the best of his days.  The last days of true freedom, of being on your own and finding yourself with all the ups and downs that come with it, become those days you look back on the most as the silver starts to run through your hair, and the lines begin to make themselves more evident when you stare in the mirror.  Needless to say I have been…

Be the Light – Featuring Virtual Diva

Just a Spoonful of Psycho

You’ve got to be one that, wherever you are, like a flower, you’ve got to blossom where you’re planted. You cannot eliminate darkness. You cannot banish it by cursing darkness. The only way to get rid of darkness is light and to be the light yourself.
Cory Booker

Remember to just breathe – Featuring IT!, DeeTaleZ, Juna Artistic Tattoo, and *Arcane Spellcaster*AK – Creations

Just a Spoonful of Psycho

If my friends and family were asked to write down quotes from me, I have a feeling every one of them would write, “just breathe,” since it happens to be my mantra.  For many years I performed on stage with terrible stage fright, that at times made me almost immobile, and someone I used to know said that to me once and I realized that in the pause that comes with taking a deep breath, the nerves calm and the brain works a tad bit better than it did before.  With everything going on in my personal life at the moment, I keep reminding those around me to just breathe, more for me than for them I’m sure, but either way it works!  Even though I am not missing anyone and my relationship is going fabulously, I still find myself drawn to a certain song by Melissa Etheridge, simply because…

Nature’s grand finale – Featuring CIRCA Living

Just a Spoonful of Psycho


Pale amber sunlight falls across
The reddening October trees,
That hardly sway before a breeze
As soft as summer: summer’s loss
Seems little, dear! on days like these.

Let misty autumn be our part!
The twilight of the year is sweet:
Where shadow and the darkness meet
Our love, a twilight of the heart
Eludes a little time’s deceit.

Are we not better and at home
In dreamful Autumn, we who deem
No harvest joy is worth a dream?
A little while and night shall come,
A little while, then, let us dream.

Beyond the pearled horizons lie
Winter and night: awaiting these
We garner this poor hour of ease,
Until love turn from us and die
Beneath the drear November trees.
Ernest Dowson

Even a sinner stops to pray from time to time – Featuring Petit Chat, Moondance Boutique and more!

Just a Spoonful of Psycho

Earlier this week I went for my mammogram and once again they scheduled the 3D mammogram for today, and discussions between the Radiologist and the surgeon have already started, which of course has me a little pensive.  Whenever that happens a certain song starts to roll through my head; so since I don’t have much to say at the moment I thought I would share it with you, because as I have come to know, even a sinner stops to pray from time to time.

The perfect Autumn ensemble – Featuring Ashmoot, and Desmonia

Just a Spoonful of Psycho

If you have ever spent any time in the mountains of Arizona in the Fall, then you know how amazingly beautiful it can be, and how temperamental the weather is as well.  The skies are crystal blue, with gorgeous white, fluffy clouds and the temperatures rise into the 70’s during the day, while the evenings are dotted with campfires and bonfires, the smell of smoke in the air, sweaters and temps that dive into the 30’s.  As you can guess, getting dressed in the morning for the rest of the day can be a bit tricky, and I have come to understand the true meaning of layering, and I find myself wishing I could get away with some of the Autumn fashions I see donning the cover of the latest fashion magazines.  But thanks to Second Life, I get to do just that, and this new ensemble from Ashmoot looks…

I don’t want to settle for good not great. Featuring Hudson’s, Desmonia, and Powder Pack

Just a Spoonful of Psycho

Making relationships work takes a lot of work on both parts.  But it’s that commitment to doing the work, I think, that is the foundation for a good relationship.  Even when things get bad, and the stress levels are approaching overload; when you are struggling to like each other, the commitment to making it work is what makes you stronger, as a couple.  But I think sometimes we lose sight of why we fell in love in the first place, and that we all need a little reminding from time to time.

I don't want to settle for good not great

Remind Me

We didn’t care if people stared
We’d make out in a crowd somewhere
Somebody’d tell us to get a room
It’s hard to believe that was me and you
Now we keep saying that we’re OK
But I don’t want to settle for good not great
I miss the way that it felt back then
