Thanksgiving is over and soon it will be Christmas and a new year. Wow, the year both flew by and yet felt like it lasted 30 years, am I right? It’s holiday season and I’m kinda feeling like the Grinch. Over the last couple of months, I just haven’t felt like myself. I blame menopause,… Continue reading The new me
Good morning, readers! It’s been a quiet, relaxing Sunday morning. I slept in until 7:00 a.m., enjoyed a cup of coffee while reading a book. I then baked some muffins, watched an episode of a new series on Netflix, The Chair (highly recommend!) and went outside with the dogs for a bit because it looks… Continue reading Not later, not someday, NOW
Please excuse my long absence, but let me assure you that everything is fine. Well, sort of. The last time I blogged, I was getting to ready to have surgery and our youngest daughter was going to have surgery as well. Also during that time, my employer was asking everyone to come back to work… Continue reading Everything’s fine.
Thank you to everyone who expressed their kind words of love and support for our family following Tuesday’s post. We are still waiting on a surgery date for Kayla, but meet with her doctor on Monday and hope to know more after that visit. I had my preoperative work-up appointment on Wednesday and learned more… Continue reading Expected recovery process
This is a post that I never wanted to have to write again. I’ve debated whether or not to even share this. I’m just pissed, and I’m just done with it. However, I’ve kept my life on this blog pretty open and transparent, and I’ve shared lots of important milestones, whether they were good or… Continue reading June sucks.
TGIF! I always feel grateful when I get to Friday, don’t you? Fridays begin as the last day of the work week and end as the start of the weekend! This will be the first post in a series I’ll be calling “Friday Gratitude”. It’s a list of things that I’m grateful for and some… Continue reading Friday Gratitude 4-9-21
Today was day 1 of a new 9-week fitness program that I’m doing. The trainer, Autumn, told us today that throughout the program, she wants us to remember the mantra CTRL+ALT+DELETE – control our actions, alter our thinking, and delete negativity. I really loved the first day of the program and plan to do a… Continue reading CTRL+ALT+DELETE
Yes, I’m still here. It feels a bit like the movie Groundhog Day, doesn’t it? Each day feels the same as the day before. The only time I leave the house is to go to work a couple of days out of the week, to the grocery store, and for my daily walks with our… Continue reading Pandemic Fatigue
The last couple of weeks have been a crazy whirlwind. Our beagle, who we adopted over 11 years ago, passed away this week at the age of 13. Up until a couple of weeks ago, he’d been healthy and energetic, but he developed kidney disease which progressed really rapidly and was starting to affect his… Continue reading Jasper
Derecho: a line of intense, widespread, and fast-moving windstorms and sometimes thunderstorms that moves across a great distance and is characterized by damaging winds. Last Monday, August 10, we had this derecho storm, with hurricane-like winds, tear through our state. Forecasters warned us earlier that we would have some severe weather, but I don’t think… Continue reading Derecho 2020
