September 10, 2021 – Off to a ‘ruff’ start (part one).

I wish I could say that everything went smooth as silk today, but if I did I’d be lying. Today was a carryover from yesterday, which also didn’t go well. Yesterday, I spent countless hours cleaning and packing and cleaning some more. It was ten in the evening before I even got started on theContinue reading “September 10, 2021 – Off to a ‘ruff’ start (part one).”

September 2, 2021 – How time flies!

I just have one question, how is it September already??!! It was during September of last year that I began this blogging ‘adventure’ and I cannot believe how quickly the time has gone (as well as how much has happened)! Around this time last year, I was experiencing some pretty significant emotional lows and feelingContinue reading “September 2, 2021 – How time flies!”

August 27, 2021 – Fried

I was trying to come up with a word that meant ‘beyond tired’ and after a number of ‘close but no cigar’ words came to mind, I finally settled on ‘fried’. It has to be the word that best describes how my brain and body feel at this moment in time. I love a lotContinue reading “August 27, 2021 – Fried”

August 17, 2021 – Small World

Considering all of the ads I’ve posted in recent days, it’s not surprising that I’d run into someone I know. I’ve got ads (on Craigslist, Facebook, and the local paper) for couches and dining sets, inflatable river tubes and party lights, elliptical trainers and workout benches, chairs and end tables, and several items that IContinue reading “August 17, 2021 – Small World”

August 9, 2021 – Kidney Surgery (Bad Patient Syndrome)

My friends, I started writing this post months ago and because I am completely exhausted (for reasons I’ll explain another day) and need to get some rest, I’m going to try and stitch it together and present it to you in the most cohesive way possible (rather than starting from scratch, which is what IContinue reading “August 9, 2021 – Kidney Surgery (Bad Patient Syndrome)”

June 30, 2021 – The not-so-little black stove.

I have a story to tell about a ‘not-so-little black stove’ that has resided in our home nearly as long as we have. This is not a tall tale, to be sure; however, it’s a rather long tale, as that stove has been in our lives for nearly 7 years without ever reaching its fullContinue reading “June 30, 2021 – The not-so-little black stove.”

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’.”
