As things come to a close

I’ve been wrestling with closing this blog down for a long time now. I think that time has come. UnearthingEM, however is not going anywhere. Rather it’s changing. My Italian, Mike, is joining me and we’re going to start a blog about together. It’s still in its formation stage.  We’re discussing what it will look … Continue reading

Maybe because it’s 3am or maybe because the internet, texting, auto-correct, and spell check have dumped my vocabulary down . . . But I’m having a hard time with Madeline L’Engle’s A Circle of Quiet. The first book in the Crosswick Journals. She admits she is obsessed with words. Obsessed isn’t the right word . … Continue reading

Random Scoping!

I’ve recently downloaded the Periscope app and have enjoyed watching people’s broadcasts. I thought I’d give it a try myself. And as usual, thought I’d just wing it! *sigh* This is why I like writing. I don’t have to think on my feet. Of course creating the periscope was pure impulse, so maybe it’d be … Continue reading

Moving On into 2016

Hi! So since my last post almost a year ago, I’ve not been putting on my own oxygen ask first and I have welcomed 2016 an exhausted, empty, wasteland of a person. Last year’s word was Intentional.

Starting over with Oxygen Masks

Wow, so it’s been since July of last year since I ventured onto this site and wrote something. Seems like July of last year I stopped doing a lot of things. I stopped working out on a regularly, writing, being creative. I started existing. Not consciously. It was more of a subtle slipping away of … Continue reading

Not just the … Continue reading

Let’s Get High

Yesterday evening I missed my bootcamp class. I’m only mildly upset about it. I was in a more important place. The Ambulatory Care Center at VCU. (Oh how I still want to call it MCV. In my head it will be perpetually MCV. Just like people call Martin’s Ukrops still. The Italian does it, not … Continue reading

How 1 Word Can Shape A Year

2014 has been a rough year so far. (I know, great way to start a post after an almost year and half – 2 year absence.) The Italian and I are still living in the little house we bought. I am still working as a receptionist for a lobbying firm. The Italian is working for … Continue reading

Open letter

The Murphster of Mystery

I just read on facebook that this darling little puppy has died. I am absolutely devastated right now. I loved that puppy dog. The Italian and I got to dog-sit him over Christmas and the New Year. Christmas morning he must have started not feeling good and he ended up with epic diarrhea through the … Continue reading
