March 30, 2021 – Reassessing the Situation

Have you ever decided to do something you have never done before, and then without much reflection, went after it? By this, I mean setting a serious goal to achieve something within a specific timeframe. I’ve set some fairly lofty goals throughout my life. I wanted to have children, I had three. I wanted toContinue reading “March 30, 2021 – Reassessing the Situation”

March 29, 2021 – Little White Lies

My husband surprised me today! No, it’s not what you’re thinking. Get your mind out of the gutter! He surprised me because he told a ‘little white lie’ to the neighbor and it’s eating him up inside! My husband NEVER lies. He is all about honesty and integrity and speaking the truth. It’s what heContinue reading “March 29, 2021 – Little White Lies”

March 28, 2021 – Memory Lane

I’m not sure why I’m so exhausted because aside from taking a short walk, I’ve done nothing physically strenuous to speak of. All I did today was a whole lot of eating and talking and listening as well as trying to unsuccessfully find a website that would allow me to schedule my Covid vaccination. DespiteContinue reading “March 28, 2021 – Memory Lane”

March 27, 2021 – Boundaries

There’s a poem by Robert Frost that contains a line or phrase often quoted in the United States (and possibly elsewhere), “Good fences make good neighbors.” How true is that? Without clear boundaries, it seems like we humans have trouble negotiating our way through this life. Boundaries can come in many forms, but the onesContinue reading “March 27, 2021 – Boundaries”

March 26, 2021 – Second Time Around

As I took my dog on her every-other-day walk through the neighborhood today, I was thinking about all of the things I did the first time around. I thought about major life events, such as having a child, purchasing a home, having surgery, or buying a new car. I also thought about minor life events,Continue reading “March 26, 2021 – Second Time Around”

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 24, 2021 – Craigslist or E-Bay?

Am I the only one that thinks trying to get rid of a bag of raisins on Craigslist is a bad idea? I’ve read so many news articles about people leaving this planet sooner than expected due to a bad Craigslist encounter. Is it worth inviting a stranger to your home and possibly getting assaultedContinue reading “March 24, 2021 – Craigslist or E-Bay?”

March 23, 2021 – People keep losing their sh*t!

When I wrote my blog post yesterday, my brain was fried and my body wanted nothing more than to get under the covers and go to sleep. However, I was determined to complete my blog before I’d allow myself to rest, so complete it I did. After glancing it over today, I realized ‘writing whileContinue reading “March 23, 2021 – People keep losing their sh*t!”

March 22, 2021 – What is with all of the ‘hate’?

Why is it necessary for us to extremely dislike or hate others for no valid reason? I don’t understand where it stems from. Since the dawn of time, it seems like one ‘man’ is trying to obliterate another. Currently, people of Asian descent are being targeted. What the hell is that all about?! I canContinue reading “March 22, 2021 – What is with all of the ‘hate’?”
