Whether we like it or not, Trump is our President.

I'm listening to all the hype right now about the inauguration and all I can say is whether we like it or not, Donald Trump will be our new President this Friday. You can shout all you want that he's an illegitimate President because he lost the popular vote but we do not choose Presidents using that method. Don't like it? Change the law. Until then, there was no real indication of voting fraud and it seems this man won the electoral vote and --- well --- he is our next Commander-In-Chief. I didn't vote for him but protesting his legitimacy is such a waste of time. I feel that instead of griping and calling for a halt to the inauguration (like THAT's going to happen!), we should be using our time and talents doing something constructive to make America, and the world, a better place. Don't youthink this is a far better use of our time?

Sleep is King.


I've been tired and in pain for a long time. I could not figure out what was wrong with me until I visited a Rheumatologist who did all the tests and confirmed I do not have RA, MS, or any other debilitating disease. He said, in no uncertain terms, "You need to get enough sleep". That's right. He told me that a lack of sleep is causing all my problems. If I had enough sleep, I wouldn't be so tired during the day, would have more energy to exercise and would have a better attitude.

Go To Bed, Jess!

Antique watches I can't place...

Would love to find the history on these. Part of my great aunt's extensive collection of antiques and jewelry we inherited after she passed away. 

Sussex seven-jewel ladies lapel watch. Seems more 1940s. The backside is glass, you can see the inner workings of the timepiece through it.

"H.W.C." on the face of this watch pendant. There are two chains that lead to one chain which holds the pendant. The numbers look rather old, I'm thinking early 1900s to 1920s. There was a pocket watch company called H.W.C. but on their website all the watches have serial nunbers, this clearly does not.  Believe it or not, this still ticks. In short spurts. I wind it up, it ticks awhile then stops. Needs cleaning on the inside no doubt then it'll likely work.

Therapy is a necessity in life

Therapy is great, everyone should try it. If anything, it teaches you to be stronger. Don't listen to anyone who tells you that having to go to therapy is a sign of weakness. No, admitting you need help is an incredible sign of strength. Family and friends are great to talk to in a pinch but they're no therapists. They can't be objective and let's face it, what you need when you're pouring your heart out is objectivity.

So, go see a therapist today.
