You Look Just Like Buddy Holly
I got new glasses a few days ago. I was having trouble seeing out of the old ones and they were also starting to tear up. I got plastic frames, kind of retro looking. I had gotten used to wearing wire frames for a long time but decided to go back to plastic frames. They're not as butt ugly as they used to be. I used to wear the huge, square plastic frames. Not a good look for a seven year old. Anyway, since I got so used to wire frames, I was having a hard time adjusting to the new ones. My husband kept looking at me and told me, "You look cute in your new glasses." I said, "I don't know. I think I look like Buddy Holly." He then said, "A little, you should take up the guitar." (thanks dear) To which I responded, "That'll be the day."
Of Spice and Men: A Pancake House Mystery
By Sarah Fox

The cops quickly rule Christine’s death a murder, and Alyssa a suspect. Marley’s boyfriend insists that the actress is innocent, but when Marley sticks her nose into the complicated lives of The Perishing’s cast and crew, she discovers more questions than answers. It seems that everyone has a hidden agenda—and a plausible motive. And as the horror spills over from the silver screen, …
It's been a year. A year since the depression and panic attacks I've had off and on since I was a teenager came back. And boy, did they come back with a vengeance.
"Hey Lisa, did ya miss us?"
My life can be stressful at times, trying to work and trying to help family members. Usually I handle it pretty well. But a perfect storm of BAD STUFF kept happening- a car accident, job loss, an unexpected death of a close friend.
The night my husband and I found out our friend had passed away is the night I had my first panic attack in about 10 years. I had instances where panic attacks would want to bubble up but I was able to control them. Not this time. They were making up for being kept down so long. It actually wasn't panic attacks, it was more of a continuous onslaught. Then the depression set in. Yay!
My husband, whom I help care for took care of me. I clung to him. He took me for car rides because they'd temporarily calm me down. He'd l…
