Not Anymore

I’m having quite a bit of anxiety this morning. My mother and I are supposed to go get our hair cut today, but I’m in a great deal of pain. Plus, I’m so scared of the lackadaisical attitude that so many people have about the virus. The numbers are soaring in our area right now. I honestly don’t feel that she or I would survive given our kidney disease and other health issues. Once upon a time, I would have rushed out into the world hoping to get it and die. Not anymore. I finally want to live and I’m damn sure not ready to die for a freaking hair cut. I don’t want to go and I don’t want her to go either. The only alternative is for me to cut her hair myself and…well, I can trim my own without messing it up too much. I’m just not ready for some stranger to be in my personal bubble. I don’t think I can do it.

Working Together

I don’t think I have ever had more fun putting together a decor scene. So, let me just tell you how this happened. My friend, Sassy Wumpkins, was hanging out with me on my platform as I was rezzing stuff out to blog. She started grabbing stuff and arranging it! I just laughed, but before I had time to really think about it…we were working together and well…tadaaaa!! My Sassafrass has really helped me a great deal with this scene and I’m so happy with it.

They Add Life

I’ve been looking at this picture for days wondering what I will write about, but every time I look at it, all I can think about is how it reminds me of my childhood. My mother always had plants everywhere. She still does. She plants flowers outside our condo and all the neighbors know our place as the one with all the pretty flowers. When she passes, they will all know it, because all those flowers will dissipate into weeds. I do not have her green thumb, not even close. If anything, I have what’s called a black thumb. I can kill a plant without even trying. No matter what the decor (and it was always changing) there were lots of plants. She says they add life to a room. I suppose that’s why my bedroom looks like the land of the dead. *laughs* That’s MamaSady for you, usually right about the big things, even in Second Life, plants really do add life to a room.

To love

You promised the world and I fell for it
I put you first and you adored it
Set fires to my forest
And you let it burn…..

…..And now the chapter is closed and done
To love, love, yeah
To love, love, yeah
To love, yeah
And now it’s goodbye, it’s goodbye for us
~ Selena Gomez – Lose You to Love Me

Normally, I don’t write anything in addition to song lyrics, but occasionally a song comes along that hits you so hard in the feels. I didn’t copy the full lyrics, because this is one of those songs that you can clearly understand every word when listening to it.  Most of my friends know how much I adore Selena Gomez, but I’ve never had any special connection to her music. But this song…wow. It just shows how we so often lose ourselves in a relationship…without even realizing it.
With every word, I feel like she crawled into my head…my heart…my soul and captured the very spirit of what I’ve been feeling these last few months regarding the end of my marriage in real life. I can honestly say that I’ve never grieved a relationship the way I’ve grieved this one and I hope I never do again. This is the hardest thing I’ve ever dealt with and if you know me, or read my blog regularly…well, you know it just doesn’t seem like the type of thing that would destroy me. I didn’t think so either.
I’m coming out of the other side now…and I am finally finding myself again…after all these years. I’m not playing victim or pointing fingers. I’m dealing with my life the best way I can right now. That’s more than I can say I was doing a year ago. I am finally able to love me again.

Goodbye, Paul.

Ghost Stories

Is there anyone that isn’t haunted…by the ones we’ve loved and the ones we’ve lost? By the choices we’ve made…in a sense one could say that our entire lives are made up of one ghost story after another. Turning the page and letting go is one the hardest decisions that most of us will have to face, but we cannot let ourselves get stuck on the same page, reading the same paragraph over and over. We have to comprehend what is really happening and move forward.

Its going to shock you

I know its going to shock you, but I love to mess with my friends. For instance, one of my favorite things to do is to tease my friend Grace. Her father felt compelled to tell her about how much sex he used to have with her mother. She was mortified, but I was thoroughly amused. Thus, I proceeded to tell her how he probably bent her mom over the kitchen table…pushed her against the shower wall….*grins*…You get the idea. I’ve been a bit of a prankster since I was a kid. I try to be careful and not prank people I don’t know fairly well. I prefer to have a general idea of how well the joke will be reciprocated. I’ve pulled some real doozies on my mother over the years, but as she gets older…I try to be more careful. I still get the random BOO in, but she always yells at me. *laughs*
My pranks are innocent in comparison to some of the shit I see on youtube. Let a bitch smash my xbox and we’re going to fight. That’s going to be the end of that relationship, right there! Let a man put dog shit in my sandwich…nuh huh, I’m going to prison, cuz he’s about to DIE! If you’re wondering why I’m talking about this, its mostly cuz I know Grace reads my blog and she’s going to cringe as the visuals of her parents naked, bumping uglies all over the very house she lives in now….yeah, you’re welcome. Oh btw, your parents did the nasty, too. *laughs* You’re welcome.

Secrets

No one likes to be lied to or betrayed. However, there are those that thrive on doing just that to other people. And then there are those that are just careless. The problem isn’t really intent as much as it is actions. We’re all guilty of telling something we shouldn’t have or for accidentally letting something slip. It really sucks when we’re betrayed like that, but so goes life. We can stay mad about it or we can learn from it. Yes, it sucks to realize that you can’t trust someone with a secret anymore, but that’s no reason to throw a friendship away. It just means we need to watch what we say more carefully. Odds are, if it was that big of a secret…we probably shouldn’t have been talking about it in the first place. Afterall, two can keep a secret if one of us is dead.

No Manners

Sometimes people simply bewilder me. We all get approached by some pretty odd people in Second Life. Ask anyone, we all have stories. I can’t help but tilt my head to the side like a confused puppy and look at my screen sometimes. Just the other day, I had someone send me a message offering their arm as a snack, because once upon a time my profile suggested that I bite. Naturally, I had no idea what he was talking about and it all went downhill from there.
Did he actually accuse me of having no manners after he called me a name? I have no manners because I did not respond they way he hoped. I have no manners, because my sexy photos are clearly an invitation for men to say whatever they want to me. I have no manners, because I don’t jump at the opportunity to talk to some strange man on the internet. I have no manners, because I doubt the sincerity of someone that couldn’t start his first conversation with me like an adult.
I think he needs a dictionary, because if he knew what manners were and had any himself…well, he wouldn’t have approached me as he did. Nor would he have thrown a tantrum when he didn’t get his way. I’m curious if his ridiculous approach works on other women and who taught him this crap?

We all have blind spots

We all know some one that only hears what they want to hear, sees what they want to see. I believe that’s more prevalent in Second Life than anywhere else. Like orange juice concentrate, the misplaced loyalties on the grid run rampant. People being “loyal” to false friends, closing their eyes to the truth and choosing to turn their eyes elsewhere. I’m not quite sure what people are afraid of, but feeding someone’s ego with lies is not doing anyone any favors. The thing is that when we lie to those that are supposedly close to us, we lie to ourselves, as well. We have to ask ourselves if that’s what we would want if it was us on the other side of the blindness…the deafness. By turning the blind eye, the deaf ear…are we doing them a favor? Or are we so afraid of the truth that the lie is more comforting? What are our motives for such a level of dishonesty, especially if we really are completely aware of the truth?

So, I’m back to writing and the ramblings of my mind are bound to be weirder than ever, but I’ve decided to restrict myself less. A new friend reminded me that I started this blog as an outlet for me. Sure, I absolutely love showing off my favorite designers and will always do that, but the words? I can’t censor myself and get therapeutic value from it, now can I? *laughs* Consider this your warning….lol.
