July 24, 2021 – Self-Sabotage

If you’d like me to bungle something for you, give me a shout. I don’t mind helping you out, I’m a great ‘bungler’. I’ve been doing it for the better part of my life and have had tons of practice. And there seems to be no end in sight as I continue to bungle things,Continue reading “July 24, 2021 – Self-Sabotage”

February 16, 2021 – The advantages of owning a used car.

Do you own a used car and it’s still got a little ‘life’ left in it? Do yourself a favor, unless you’re taking it to the shop continuously for repairs, hang onto that gem! Yes, there are serious incentives to purchasing new vehicles. When you drive a new vehicle off the lot, what a rush!Continue reading “February 16, 2021 – The advantages of owning a used car.”

December 7, 2020 – Trying to save the world (PART ONE).

There is something about helping people that I find particularly gratifying. And today, I got an opportunity to do just that. It wasn’t a big deal. Just after I left my house to walk the dog and rounded the corner, a white sedan pulled up right alongside me. I glanced over and saw it wasContinue reading “December 7, 2020 – Trying to save the world (PART ONE).”

December 1, 2020 – Life Themes (Depression)

I have really struggled with what to write about today. I’ve been feeling really down which frustrates me to no end. Sometimes, despite the medicine and exercise and eating right, my arch nemesis ‘depression’ returns on occasion. And fortunately today, even though I’ve managed to fall into the well, I was able to grab ontoContinue reading “December 1, 2020 – Life Themes (Depression)”

November 24, 2020 – Much ado about cold sores.

I woke up this morning to discover an ‘uninvited guest’ clinging firmly to my lower lip. I was pretty certain I knew what it was, my lip hurt a bit and was slightly bumpy, but the room was dark so I went into the bathroom to confirm my suspicions. After checking in the mirror, thereContinue reading “November 24, 2020 – Much ado about cold sores.”

November 21, 2020 – Should I stay or should I go?

It seems that most of us have a pretty good internal gauge that helps us determine when it’s time to move on. Whether that decision (to stay or go) pertains to a relationship or a job, the questions to ask yourself are essentially the same. And sometimes we pay close attention to that gauge andContinue reading “November 21, 2020 – Should I stay or should I go?”

November 20, 2020 – Tinkerbell (Part Two)

Where was I? Oh, yes! I was telling you about the time I went to see my biological father, ‘Big Beluga’, after he went AWOL and was absent from my life for well over 25 years. I left off at the part where we were walking down the stairwell and headed for the mini-van. InContinue reading “November 20, 2020 – Tinkerbell (Part Two)”

November 19, 2020 – Tinkerbell (Part One)

I have so many things that I want to talk about today, but I feel compelled to talk about my biological father. I’m going to refer to him as ‘Big Beluga’ from here on out, or ‘BB’ for short. As I mentioned in an earlier post, ‘One person can make all of the difference (PARTContinue reading “November 19, 2020 – Tinkerbell (Part One)”

November 18, 2020 – You do what you’ve got to do.

I’ve done a lot of things to earn money throughout my lifetime. I think my very first job was babysitting, but I hated it. I did get something from the experience, however. It helped me realize that I don’t like being responsible for other people or other people’s children or being ‘in charge’. I wasContinue reading “November 18, 2020 – You do what you’ve got to do.”

November 17, 2020 – Massage Encounters

There is nothing quite like a massage to reset your body as well as your mind. I didn’t have my first massage until well into adulthood when my husband purchased one for me as a birthday gift. After the session, I felt a state of relaxation I had never felt before. It was w-o-n-d-e-r-f-u-l (asideContinue reading “November 17, 2020 – Massage Encounters”
