If you’ve had an opportunity to watch the documentary on Netflix called ‘Misha and the Wolves’, you’ll understand when I say how well it ties into today’s theme. I’m not going to give anything away but I recommend you check it out. It’s very well done. Anyway, I just finished watching it with my husbandContinue reading “August 13, 2021 – Spammers, scammers, fakes and flakes.”

August 11, 2021 – Ups and Downs
It’s been a difficult day today, I’ve really struggled emotionally. A fair amount of bad news came my way yesterday and it didn’t seem to really sink in until today. After everything my brother and I (and our respective families) went through to ensure my mom was placed in the best possible home, it didn’tContinue reading “August 11, 2021 – Ups and Downs”
July 12, 2021 – The events of the day.
After sitting down in front of my computer for the last 30 minutes, I still haven’t figured out what I want to talk about. Today was filled with so many activities and I have yet to whittle them down to just one. The only expectation I had for this afternoon was an open house andContinue reading “July 12, 2021 – The events of the day.”
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 13, 2021 – Being Human
Have any of you been watching the most recent season of American Idol? Spoiler alert, I just found out that Caleb Kennedy left the show.

May 11, 2021 – When it sounds too good to be true.
My poor husband. Last week, I was the one in turmoil. This week, it’s his turn. As part of his routine, he gets on the computer and checks Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, and the local classifieds (on average) 2-6 times each and every day. He is on the search for the ‘perfect boat’. Immediately after weContinue reading “May 11, 2021 – When it sounds too good to be true.”
April 23, 2021 – Always have a ‘Plan B’.
My husband and I are taking a trip next month. I suspect it’s going to be an annual one. We did it last year and it went so well that we’re going to do it yet again. We’re actually just returning to where we used to reside before we moved to where we currently live.Continue reading “April 23, 2021 – Always have a ‘Plan B’.”
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”
April 17, 2021 – Houseguest Etiquette
‘Pack it in, pack it out’ is a term that many people who hike and/or camp are familiar with. In essence, it applies to outdoor spaces and the condition you and I should leave them in when we actually ‘leave’. I interpret it to mean that whatever I bring with me in order to enjoyContinue reading “April 17, 2021 – Houseguest Etiquette”
April 9, 2021 – Getting Nowhere Fast
Do you ever feel as if you’ve expended a great deal of energy towards achieving specific goals, only to find that you’ve wound up no worse, but certainly no better? Maybe I’m making it into something more than it is, but it sure seems like that’s how most things have played out this week. FromContinue reading “April 9, 2021 – Getting Nowhere Fast”
