Truth 18: How Not To Kill Your Family

 

So, while it may seem early for anything holiday related, I just saw a dang Christmas tree in a store.

WTF???? It’s mid-September?? It’s still a month and a half away from Halloween!!!

Stores have lost their minds. Seriously. It’s insanity! RUN!!!!!

But, the Christmas tree inspired me to do this little video on how not to murder your family and friends, not just around the holidays, but all year long. I use this strategy with the hubby, the family, people that piss me off at the Starbucks, you name it.

I hope it helps you too! Enjoy!

 

LOVE YOU GUYS!

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

Truth 16: Eulogy for a Beloved Friend

 

Many of you saw my post on suicide from earlier this year, but what I didn’t share was the video eulogy I did for my dear friend (well, if I’m being honest FTF) Thommi since I couldn’t attend his memorial. Not attending it was so desperately hard, but I hope my video captured my feelings about Thommi taking his own life and the joy he brought to so many while here.

If you are AT ALL thinking of taking your life or know someone who is, PLEASE get help or give help. It’s never worth it.

I’m posting the suicide response video first, so those of you who have not seen it can see me raw and aching and know first hand the devastation it causes.

The second is my video eulogy for Thommi and has not been posted before on my blog.

I was just talking with him the week before he shot himself and had no clue what was about to happen. Watch it if you are even contemplating something permanent as a solution to something. You can see a tiny snippet of how the people you left behind feel.

So PLEASE reach out if you need help. There is NO SHAME in admitting you need help. I see a shrink and a therapist. I’m admitting it to everyone and am proud to do so because it takes courage to seek help and openly admit you could use an extra hand to hold. Find that hand and hold on as you CAN get through whatever it is.

SO VERY MUCH LOVE TO YOU ALL.

 

 

Truth 14: Muffs, Douches and Boobs. Oh my!

 

You cannot say I didn’t warn you! 😉 

Oh, and you DO get to see Car Teddy at the very end. That’ll make more sense after you see the video. XO

 

Love you guys!

Have a great week!

A disappearing act? Yes, I’m a magician!

 

Love you guys but I gotta take a wee break from everything to get my health back up to par.

I’ll miss you, but in the everlasting words of the Terminator, “I’ll be back!”

 

It’s a Landslide! Book Covers (probably) Picked!

You guys are SO AWESOME!!!

It was a landslide as to the ones you all liked the best, which made it nice and easy for me because those were the ones I liked best too! Woo hoo!

That doesn’t mean I still don’t want you to vote if you haven’t yet. There’s plenty of time to make tweaks or change something up, but here’s what we ended up with (the back cover is on the left).

The red is a little faded looking because it’s saved as a jpeg right now, but in real life it’s brighter.

Sincerely, thank you so much for the help and please keep the comments coming if you have suggestions. And remember, the logo is just a placeholder and the empty white space is for the bar code, so it’s not quite 100% yet.

Love you guys!!!!
