Storytelling Podcasts

Against The Rocks! This is my personal journal. I was furloughed in April of 2020 and laid off on August 7th due to Covid19. Although I will be sharing about my OCD and my struggle daily with it, this is also where I'm going to talk about anything that comes to mind!!! I'm old and I don't have that filter between my brain and my mouth so you never know what is going to come out. I like to share about things that happen with my dogs, cats, life in general, weight loss journey, fitness and gaming, and my new job in relocation! Since being furloughed in April, I've been trying to re-establish myself and maybe, just maybe, create a new career. Please check out my website!

True Crime - Follow up Story

5/18/2021
Recently I learned that the person who molested me at the age of 14 died. I thought when that happened I would feel some kind of emotion. I would feel some kind of justice, but I didn’t really feel anything, nothing, nada. I know this is going to sound bad but I was truly disappointed that I didn’t feel something, some kind of emotion. I realized that the hate I felt and guilt I felt had diminished. For years I wished him dead and even recently hoped his death would be painful. My only...

The color of weight

5/7/2021
Growing up, I never thought of myself as being overweight until someone called me “Fatty”. Once that happened, my whole perspective changed. I was very self-conscious about how I looked and what I wore. As a teenager, I wore shirts that hung loose and jeans. Nothing I owned fit tight, was ever tucked in or belted. As I started high school, my clothes became darker and the funny thing is I probably weighed 150 pounds which is where I’m trying to get now. My clothes were always solid no prints...

Feeling Too Much

5/4/2021
I take any task assigned to me very seriously. Working in relocation whether it is pets or people, there are a lot of moving parts. No matter what you do for a living there are always things that can happen, but in people relocation, missing something or making an error on paperwork, doesn’t cost a life. In pet relocation, if it is not correct an animal’s life is at stake. I am very diligent about doing things in order, correctly and making sure I check everything before I complete...

I'm just sharing with my new goals for the Month of May - on May 1. We are going to be making some changes to the podcast. I'm a going to try to go back to three a week, it will be a little more work, but I need to get some income from the podcast. I do this for fun, but its not free.

Thanks for listening to my podcast,...

My Worst Enemy

4/26/2021
All my life I’ve heard the phrase “I’m my own worst enemy.” I never truly understood that as a teenager or a young adult, but today I can tell you that is true for a lot of people and I am one of them. For most of my life I have fought an ongoing battle with myself because of my weight. Just as I started to feel like I was in control, I had a wreck and now six months later, I’m still having issues that keep me from exercising and I’ve gained back 9 pounds. I can’t run/walk/jog the 2.5 or...

Fitness and Life Updates

4/21/2021
Hey everyone, Just sharing some updates on my fitness and life in general. Finally made it walking a mile last week . That was the first time since the wreck in November. Still having issues with my left knee and hip. Next step is an MRI and I don't want to pay out that money. We are going to be changing up the podcast some. Try to do a simulcast in Spanish maybe. Maybe some true crime stories. Also trying to figure out what is the next step in life. It is busy in pet relocation, just like...

FairyTales NOT

4/17/2021
Fairy tales that start with Once upon a time are not really fairy tales of love and happily ever after. They are tales of distress, entrapment and normally some horrible outcomes. Some of the outcomes are death, life imprisonment or suffering cruelty at the hands of someone with more power or more money. Power and money don’t always belong to one person. Sometimes one will possess the power and another possesses the money. Occasionally those items are both controlled by one single...

Life and Death

4/13/2021
Life or death? Those two words have a lot of meanings separate or together. Sometimes one person can hold another person’s life and death in their hands. It is said that over 150,000 people die roughly a day across the world. How does that break down? That is 6,250 people per hour, 104 people per minute and 1.74 people per second. Let that sink in? How many people do you know that have lost someone. Over the last year, lots of people have lost love ones to the Covid 19 virus. So let’s take...

Portable Jobs

4/9/2021
So Since March of 2020 Most of the world has had portable jobs working remotely. Not saying that everyone was able to work through the pandemic, but a lot of people with office jobs were sent home and were given the tools to work remotely. Some of us got used to working from home and are not looking forward to having to return to the work place. I currently have a job working remotely. The only way I will have to go back to an office is if I have to get another job for some reason. The only...

The Equalizer

4/5/2021
So I’m not sure who watched it, but a remake of the Equalizer premiered after the Superbowl this year. The first time The Equalizer appeared on Television was in 1985 and starred Edward Woodard. He was a former Covert operations officer and the show ran up 1989. Just like the new series, he obtained his clients from placing an ad. However, in 1985 it was in the Newspaper. Denzel Washington made the first film, The Equalizer and it came out in 2014 and it was based on an American Vigilante....

Brachycephalic Aggressive and Temperature

Brachycephalic, Aggressive Breeds and Temperature Everyone loves pugs, Pekingese, and French bull dogs, but those dogs are actually restricted breeds when it comes to flying. Snub-nosed dogs and cats are considered Brachycephalic which can lead to severe respiratory distress. Brachycephalic means snort headed. They are all cute dogs and cats and a lot of people don’t realize it can be an issue when you decide to relocate or take a job in another country. A lot of the airlines have list of...

Our 15th Wedding Anniversary

3/31/2021
Today, we celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. Never in my life did I think I would say those words. I actually never thought I would get married until I met the man that is my husband. It was truly by God’s intervention that we met. We had a small wedding, western themed. My daughter was my maid of honor. His brother was the best man. We had his brother perform the ceremony. It was a nice and small wedding. We were surrounded by family and friends. We had three cakes. Grooms cake with...

I'm Not a Racist

3/27/2021
Just because you are born in the south or living in the south does not make you a racist. Are we good ole’ boys and girls, yes we are. Do we enjoy hunting, fishing and outdoor gatherings? Yes we do. I have never been a slave owner, now has any of my ancestors at least back to when they came from England. I had a great, great, great grandfather that came from England as an indentured servant. It doesn’t matter to me what color your skin is or where you came from or where you live or what you...

Owning Vs Renting

3/23/2021
In the almost 15 years that we have been married, we have owned, rented, owned and now we are renting again. In all of this time, we have kind of made a mental list of what we like about the different places and what we don’t. We would like to be able to pay and build as we go but I’m not sure that is going to be possible based on our salary at this time. However, we continue to make a list: Things we don’t like: · No windows in the back/front of the house · Small bathrooms · Utility...

Triggers

3/19/2021
Think about that word for a minute. Everyone has one. Its not just on a gun, although in today's time that is an important one. Trigger by definition is a small device that releases a spring or catch and so sets off a mechanism, especially in a gun. It s also defined as "cause to happen or exist (event or situation). For example "an allergy can be triggered by stress or overwork". If you think about it, other words that go with trigger are: finger, words, happy, warning, point, food and...

Dogs, Cats, Vaccinations

3/15/2021
As pet owners we are responsible to protect out pets, just like parents it is our responsibility to protect our children. For some people, their pets are their children. So it is really important that they are vaccinated before transferring or moving to another country. A lot of countries require pets to be microchipped and that microchip has to be implanted on or before the rabies vaccination. There is a 21 day waiting period after that rabies vaccination if it is the first one after the...

Memories Emotional Rollercoaster

3/12/2021
So it is no secret about how I love animals more than people. They love you no matter what! Anyone that has a Facebook account will occasionally receive a post that has a post that you shared come up as a memory. Well that happened today and I cried! In September of 2020, I had to have my long haired Chihuahua put down because he was in pain and I couldn’t stand to see him suffer. The memory that came up today was from 11 years ago and we were living in Emory. I had lost my beagle Dixie and...

Conquest Game of Thrones 2

3/8/2021
I shared in one of my first three of four podcast how I started playing this game called Conquest Game of Thrones and that is where I met a lot of good people and gained a new best friend or two. I started playing almost 2 years ago and this last week, I gave my keep to one of our team members. I was zeroed during the game a few months back and do not have the time or resources to rebuild and be competitive in the game. Also with the new job and doing the podcast I just don’t have that much...

Death of a Spouse

3/4/2021
I don’t think you are or would ever be prepared enough for the death of your spouse. I know I’m not. My mom wasn’t either even though my dad was in the hospital a long time or we knew it wasn’t good, that phone call in the middle of the night still shocks you. That was one of the quietest drive we ever made from Emory to Denton, Texas. He had a DNR and I watched him suffocate as the IV bags emptied and the machines were unhooked. My mom was mad at my dad for leaving her. His ashes were...
