July 30, 2021 – Eyesore

An old friend reached out to me via text this morning and told me how excited she was that we would be moving back. I told her that I wasn’t sure whether it was going to even happen because we’d had no movement whatsoever with the sale of our home. “Lower the price?” she suggested.Continue reading “July 30, 2021 – Eyesore”

July 26, 2021 – Shower Talk

What a strange day it’s been! An open house was scheduled so I suggested to my husband that we plan a little overnight getaway and spend some time with my family on the other side of the mountains (since we had to make ourselves scarce anyway). After checking with the dog boarder to see ifContinue reading “July 26, 2021 – Shower Talk”

June 20, 2021 – Motivating Factors

If you ask anyone what motivates them, the top two responses would most likely be love or money. Personally, I am chasing the almighty dollar at the moment. I cannot remember the last time I worked so hard in my life! But in the end, if we get the results we’re hoping for (a substantialContinue reading “June 20, 2021 – Motivating Factors”

June 16, 2021 – Saying Goodbye

I am not ready to say goodbye, not just yet. My husband keeps telling me to call my brother and break the news but I can’t seem to do it. The last few times we’ve communicated, he’s told me how much he’s struggling (with depression). Knowing this, I don’t feel good about dropping a bombContinue reading “June 16, 2021 – Saying Goodbye”

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’.”

March 25, 2021 – A light at the end of the tunnel.

I got the best news today! My brother Clover forwarded me an announcement from the assisted living center where my mom resides. After I read it, I was so excited that I nearly started jumping up and down! I chose to refrain, however, as I had a full bladder at the time and didn’t wantContinue reading “March 25, 2021 – A light at the end of the tunnel.”

March 13, 2021 -There’s no place like home.

My friends, I have to tell you, it’s always good to reconnect with family and friends. I just spent the last 3 days over at my brother’s. With him, I can be as silly and stupid as I want to be and there’s no judgment. We have so much history together that we could spendContinue reading “March 13, 2021 -There’s no place like home.”

March 11, 2021 – A Good Day

Have you ever had one of those days when everything fell into place effortlessly? I’m experiencing one of those days. Aside from insomnia, I cannot find fault in a single thing that happened today. It’s about as close to perfect as I’ll ever get. The day started out beautiful and sunny. I woke up muchContinue reading “March 11, 2021 – A Good Day”

March 6, 2021 – Love and Marriage

So many times I could have thrown in the towel. So many times. We met when we were both incredibly young, just 19 and newly ‘out in the world’. Initially, I wasn’t the least bit attracted to him. I always gravitated toward ‘bad boys’ and he was far too nice to fit into that category.Continue reading “March 6, 2021 – Love and Marriage”

January 27, 2021 – Health ‘Matters’

The theme of the day seems to be around ‘health’. I woke up with anxiety (big shocker!) as well as with significant back pain. I have had my back ‘act up’ enough times by now that I know exactly what to do when I feel the first ‘twinge’, call and schedule an appointment with theContinue reading “January 27, 2021 – Health ‘Matters’”
