I said it before in a blog titled, “Can I Be Honest?”, but I have so much more to say that I thought I would write another entry. I know that many are sad today. That the world seems ominous and dark. There is a sense of gloom that lingers for many. For those of… Continue reading Keeping An Open Mind
Here is the deal…….I am not artistic in the creating a scene with tools other than my laptop. Give me some words and I can make semantic art, but give me a paint brush and I will give you a blank canvas. Seriously, even my stick people are subject to interpretation. Reluctantly, I signed… Continue reading Hammers, Drills, Stencils…..Oh, my!
It has been over eight weeks since the election. Eight weeks that even with the holidays has been a shit show of insult slinging paired with snide commentaries. My nonpartisan action, to keep my serenity in check, has been to stop following and possibly unfriending those that seem to wallow or gloat. Their… Continue reading Can I Be Honest?
I have learned in my vast forty-nine and a half years, that true achievement comes from the thought process of at least trying even if it makes me uncomfortable. It was so easy for me to make excuses for my behavior, attitude, and lack of ambition. I believed it was everyone else’s responsibility… Continue reading I Can’t, I Won’t Or I Will, I Did
Tonight’s dinner resembled a congressional negotiation – or what I think it might look like – with eye rolling and tantrums even though we (Bryce and I) were on the same page. Arguments are never what they seem. At the end of everything, Bryce walked away from the table saying, “It is always about… Continue reading Even Playing Field
Among the overdramatic, oversensitive, and overbearing, we have now approached being overly apologetic. Frankly, I am pretty over it…….insert giggle because, well, I made myself laugh. Maybe because I am approaching my fifties and I am mindful about accountability. Not just being accountable for when I hurt someone or make a blunder… Continue reading Unapologetic
Oh, I woke up a tad annoyed this morning. I could blame it on hormones, annoying testosterone filled humans that reside in my house, or the twenty messages on my Facebook messenger that all rattled off the same message…..Hello, Can you put a (heart emoji) on your wall, without a comment, only a heart, then… Continue reading Social Media…Oh the joy!
Bleary eyed, I stumbled into the living room this morning and stepped into a nice, wet pile of cat puke. Colorful words floated from my mouth as I deterred one of the Bassets from devouring it. As I composed myself and cleaned it up, I went to throw the paper towel away and… Continue reading Offense Taken
The benefits of social media provides the ability to connect to a variety of people. It allows us to engage, ask for help and guidance, but sometimes it is a platform for shaming other people. If you want my honest opinion……this is the adult version of bullying. I have witnessed new moms… Continue reading It’s A Shame
I am quick to jump to conclusions even without additional information to fill in the empty spaces. Recently, I have been looking at this unattractive quality with intrigue rather than shame wondering how I could change that perspective to enhance my outlook. Today, I ventured out for lunch with a friend. I arrived a few… Continue reading Just……
