I started 2019 with the mindset that this was going to be the best year ever!!! I had goals!! I had plans!! I knew I had work before me, but I was ready, willing and able to get this show on the road. Then my mom fell and broke her femur. Alright, a stumbling block […]

Well, I wasn’t going to do it. It’s sort of cliche to do a birthday blog. Especially if you’ve neglected your blog for so long. But here it is, my birthday blog. I guess it’s just normal to reflect as your birthday approaches. Especially as you get older. People have always said that time flies […]

Wow!!! 2017 passed so quickly!!! I guess it really is true that time flies faster as you age. Lots of things happened in 2017. It was sort of like a roller coaster ride. My spare time is limited. So I’ve done a lot of weighing my options during the month of December. I’ve spent a […]

I have been at my new job now 86 days. I have acclimated well and feel like a part of the team. It was weird at first, being in a team situation. For the last 14 years I have been in an office by myself, doing my own thing. I sat by myself, ate lunch […]

I wrote a short little blog earlier this week about finding the time to do the things we want.  One of the points of the blog was setting aside time one weekend a month to compile a blog arsenal.  I’ve got all kinds of thoughts and memories and ideas that roll around in my head […]
