June 22, 2021 – Assemble first, read instructions later.

First of all, I’d like to make an observation. What is it about wet paint that is so enticing to winged insects? Are they all on a suicide mission or what? Just once, I’d like to paint something outside and not have to pick a bunch of dead bugs off the surface afterward. Today, IContinue reading “June 22, 2021 – Assemble first, read instructions later.”

June 18, 2021 – The list keeps growing!

Sigh. It’s not as if the ‘list’ isn’t long enough already, but I keep finding more stuff to add. I just keep thinking that whoever walks through our front door as a prospective buyer, I want to knock their socks off! I still have yet to finish painting most of the interior doors (in ourContinue reading “June 18, 2021 – The list keeps growing!”

June 14, 2021 – Moving at Warp Speed

Let me tell you, I knew that once we made up our minds to move, the momentum would pick up, but this is ridiculous! In the last two days, I have completed more tasks around my house than I have in the last two years. Why the hurry? Oh my gosh, we had the firstContinue reading “June 14, 2021 – Moving at Warp Speed”

June 12, 2021 – No longer ‘on the fence’.

Well, there’s nothing like the concept of ‘moving’ to light a fire under my butt. I actually managed to ‘tick one of the boxes’ on my list today and finally got around to staining our cedar gate and fence. And that isn’t all. The one job that I have resisted tackling because it’s so vast,Continue reading “June 12, 2021 – No longer ‘on the fence’.”

June 10, 2021 – Marital Discord

Sigh. I think jumping onto this ‘moving’ train may not have been a good idea. It seems like we’ve been at each other’s throats ever since we both got on board. Whenever I get revved up about anything, he seems to put on the brakes, and vice versa. The only thing we’ve been in agreementContinue reading “June 10, 2021 – Marital Discord”

June 2, 2021 – Somewhere in the middle.

Have you ever noticed that there are certain people who (when you spend time around them) make you feel better about yourself? Whereas, alternatively, there are other people who make you feel far worse (when you hang out together)? In high school, I had two different, close friends, both with the name ‘Julie’. They wereContinue reading “June 2, 2021 – Somewhere in the middle.”

May 29, 2021 – Pinball Machine

Wow! Yesterday was a real humdinger! I spent the majority of it haphazardly running from one room in my house to the next, ping-ping-ping, just like one of those metal balls in a Pinball machine, trying to gather up bits of ‘this and that’ to take along on my trip. I think I ended upContinue reading “May 29, 2021 – Pinball Machine”

May 27, 2021 – Communication Breakdown

I realized that I missed out on a few key phrases the other day when I talked about ‘the number three’ so I feel it’s necessary to mention them before I move on to the next topic. Primarily, three key phrases came to mind (after I published my blog-of-the-day). The first is ‘Three sheets in/toContinue reading “May 27, 2021 – Communication Breakdown”

May 9, 2021 – Things I Ponder

Each day, things come to my attention that I cannot help but wonder about. Why am I the way I am and is there any hope for me? Why were spiders created and why do they torment me so? Will I ever figure out what I want from life or will it forever elude me?Continue reading “May 9, 2021 – Things I Ponder”

April 21, 2021 – Boating Adventures

Life is full of surprises. My husband and I bought our first boat in 2015. Boy, did we get fleeced! It’s not the first time we’ve been taken advantage of because we didn’t do our homework and were totally unprepared. With most purchases, especially the ‘big ones’, I research the hell out of them beforeContinue reading “April 21, 2021 – Boating Adventures”
