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, […](image)

FifteenObi's SisterNever, ever forget.

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, […](image)

Yep. It’s been Ten Years.Obi's Sisterpi_boyton

Mon, 14 Mar 2016 07:14:00 +0000

A little more than ten 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 […](image)

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 […](image)

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 […](image)

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 […](image)

Is This Still a Thing? After Nine Years, You BetchaObi's SisterPi-Day

Sat, 14 Mar 2015 11:00:14 +0000

It has been a long year. And I admit my guilt of long-term absence from the interwebz, citing my own time-constraints as an alibi. But yes, this blog is still a thing. Caring for my mom has become a part-time job. I don’t mind it so much, after all it is a season of life […](image)

Obama Flunks History…AgainObi's Sister

Jeff Quinton has an excellent read on why Obama’s remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast were wrong. Didn’t he have a tee time, or something?Filed under: Obama Bad(image)

Evil That’s Been Around Since the Beginning of TimeObi's SisterNever, ever forget.

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 11:00:54 +0000

Thirteen years ago we were attacked by Evil Incarnate. We are even less safe now than we were last year. As we remember those that fell that day and in the years since, pray for our protection against this Evil in the days to come. Republishing last year’s post in full: This day always exposes […](image)
