A Very Stinky Week

What was supposed to be a fabulous weekend is turning miserable.  It started on Wednesday. Wednesday was my late mom’s birthday.  I woke up for work and as I got out of bed I looked out into the backyard.  I do this every morning, hoping to catch a glimpse of a deer or coyote.  IContinue reading “A Very Stinky Week”

Love, the Universe

Thursday February 14, 2019 I haven’t written in quite awhile.  Things have been pretty good.  I DID end up drinking on Super Bowl Sunday, my last post.  I think it was the anxiety of thinking about whether or not to go to the neighbor’s party plus thinking that I deserve to have some fun onContinue reading “Love, the Universe”

Just Another Sunday Funday

Superbowl Sunday– woohoo!! This is one of the few days per year that my neighborhood has a party.  Well, mainly one neighbor– but she does invite the entire neighborhood, which includes our half mile long dead end street. I’m not sure if I’ll go to the party.  There is a lot of drinkers and freeContinue reading “Just Another Sunday Funday”

Sunday Runday Funday Wonderful Munday

Ahhhhhh… sweet sunny Sunday morning 🙂  We had a bit of a snowstorm yesterday– the first of the year.  We got about 5 inches or so, so everything outside is covered, and white and peaceful.  The sun is shining brightly and it is a very brisk 1 degree at the moment. It’s been a prettyContinue reading “Sunday Runday Funday Wonderful Munday”

More Good Stuff

Sunday here– and fabulous one at that!  What a great weekend it’s been! If one pic sums up the weekend, this would be it: Ok– it wasn’t all lazy, but it was filled with comfort and joy 🙂 Friday night I skipped out on an after school work retirement get together.  This caused me aContinue reading “More Good Stuff”

The Game of Life is Hard to Play

Gonna lose it anyway? Well, eventually, but hopefully not for awhile anyway.  (Lyrics from Suicide is Painless) Back to work, vacation is over.  All good. Sunday evening was a little rough.  I felt myself get crabby and edgy.  I thought of the Sundays of my past where I would be diligent about getting all ofContinue reading “The Game of Life is Hard to Play”

Goodr’s Junky Advertising; Taking Advantage of a Crisis Generation?

I am slightly disgusted slash apprehensive at the recent marketing tactics of one of my favorite sunglass companies, Goodr.  I don’t want to be that overly offensive new age person, but… “Frozen drinks require two things: pineapple garnish and crushed vicodin.” “we’re going for a run (maybe popping a couple of hallucinogens) and riding ourContinue reading “Goodr’s Junky Advertising; Taking Advantage of a Crisis Generation?”

My Best Life

Getting up at 5:00am with the littlest to see the peak meteor showers. Cleaning out closets one by one while I’m off work- purging bag after bag of things I never use after being a married adult for 18 years. Walking 2 miles while my foot is still hurting– because walking on it ultimately helpsContinue reading “My Best Life”

Thursday Musings

Hello Thursday!  Four days left of vacation and I am soaking it all in (staycation). I woke up with a throbbing foot.  I’m not sure if it’s because I decreased my pred down from 10mg to 5mg per day a few days ago or that I drank alcohol for two nights in a row. IContinue reading “Thursday Musings”

Extraordinary

The first day of the new year always seems to feel fresh and exciting.  SO many promises and hopes, dreams, etc.  A new chapter, the beginning of something novel. I’ve been up since around 5am and it’s been so peaceful and serene around here. I’ve had lots of time to think and reflect. 2018: AContinue reading “Extraordinary”
