Ground Control to Major TomObi's Sister

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 23:10:31 +0000

So, yeah. My overwhelming life just became even more overwhelming. A quick update: The Day Job just piled another person’s worth of responsibilities on me. Like a big, stinking barrel of fish. That isn’t smuggling a Hot Dwarf into a down-trodden town. Bad form. Bad form, indeed. The Mom Job continues it’s long, slow slog […]

And Yust Like That, the Blog is Twelve.Obi's Sisteral_pi

A little more than twelve years ago, I ventured out to the internetz and discovered an entire world of voices just as disgruntled as mine.  I thought if they can do it, so can I.  And one day I just started. I didn’t pick Pi Day / Albert Einstein’s birthday on purpose.  It was just […]

On a Dark Day, Waiting on a HurricaneObi's SisterNever, ever forget.

Mon, 11 Sep 2017 11:00:00 +0000

Those dark clouds churning to the South are the remnants of Hurricane Irma, bringing the promise of high winds, heavy rains, and flooding. Having been flooded before, the prospect of another few days like that will bring a sleepless night and lots of indigestion. Looming weather catastrophe aside, do not forget what today is. The […]

Who Are These People?Obi's Sister

Fri, 06 Jan 2017 12:20:23 +0000

I miss writing here.  I miss a lot of things these days. This little blog has been on hiatus because my mother’s dementia is advancing.  Only those who have witnessed this abomination will understand. A bright, vibrant, strong Southern woman is now a shell of her former self.  The vacant stares, constant questions, lost bills, […]

There are things you don’t understand until you’re older. Happiness so beyond measure you think your heart will burst. Pride in the (seemingly Herculian) feat that the obnoxious teenagers skulking about your house just a few years ago have actually turned into fine adults. Grief that never ends. It may fade like a low tide, […]

Does My Vote Even Count Anymore?Obi's Sisterparticipation.jpg

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 18:24:01 +0000

Yesterday was the Georgia Presidential Primary. After a great deal of prayer and soul/google searching, I voted for Ted Cruz. This campaign cycle has grated on my nerves to such a point I’m considering abandoning Facebook and Twitter until 2017, at least. Just because I disagree with your candidate du jour’s position/statement/hair style doesn’t mean […]

Things, They Are A’Changin’Obi's Sister

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 00:37:58 +0000

Well, obviously I’ve been away for a bit. I’ve thought a lot about y’all; hopefully you haven’t forgotten about me. Shortly after my father passed away in 2013, my mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.  Since then, I’ve been on a roller coaster of emotion, education and exhaustion.  Finally I feel like we’ve reached a place […]

Today is the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 Islamist terrorist attacks on American soil. Rather than focus on all the noise and negativity, allow me a few moments of personal privilege. My oldest goes to school in NY.  One of my “bucket items” was to visit the 9/11 Memorial before she finished her studies and […]
