When I collapsed (from exhaustion) onto my ‘not half bad’ air mattress last night, I thought about how much my present life resembles life seven years ago (this month). During the month of August, 2014, we purchased our home. On the day of the closing, it was over 105 degrees and ash fell from theContinue reading “August 31, 2021 – Full Circle”

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 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 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”
April 15, 2021 – Painter’s Cramp
A few days ago, I intended to dedicate several hours towards painting my ‘Dancing Buskers’. After much deliberation, I thought changing the manner in which I was painting might help give me better insight on how to proceed. I know. It was a long shot but I was desperate and figured, “Why not?” The wayContinue reading “April 15, 2021 – Painter’s Cramp”
March 8, 2021 – When it’s time (Part Two)
Another thing that I could never comprehend was that even though she professed to being a Christian, she managed to justify having an affair with a married man. Huh? Yes, the last time she flew out to see me (when I lived in another state), she was ‘in love’. She had met a guy thatContinue reading “March 8, 2021 – When it’s time (Part Two)”
February 18, 2021 – Change is hard!
My life has been in a constant state of transition since my transplant. I am trying to do better and be better and not merely ‘exist’ any longer. The thing is, ‘existing’ is easy. It requires very little effort. Before my transplant, a typical day consisted of going through the motions, eating, sleeping, ‘waste’ management,Continue reading “February 18, 2021 – Change is hard!”
February 17, 2021 – Excuses, excuses.
Alright, my friends, I have decided it’s time to stop making excuses. As hard as it is for me to step up and agree to participate in something, I am actually going to say ‘yes’ this time. Right now, I rarely leave the house and unfortunately, I’m beginning to prefer being home to being ‘outContinue reading “February 17, 2021 – Excuses, excuses.”
