September 18, 2021 – Countdown

Somehow, some way, I have nearly fulfilled my promise to you, my readers. In the beginning, when I initially made the commitment to post daily, I was facing 365 days. It seemed insurmountable. However, I am now facing a mere ten. In ten more days, I can either continue what I’ve been doing (posting everyContinue reading “September 18, 2021 – Countdown”

August 1, 2021 – Moving On

If you don’t think 2.5 milligrams of steroids can make much of a difference in a person’s well being, think again! I certainly didn’t think that minute amount could have such a detrimental impact on my health, but it did. I went from completing a bunch of projects on the house and painting up aContinue reading “August 1, 2021 – Moving On”

July 8, 2021 – Everything happens for a reason.

It is funny what people say in an attempt to provide comfort or reassurance. There are certain ‘favorites’ that I’ve heard more than a time or two, “I’ll pray for you”, “This too shall pass,” “It’ll all work out in the end,” “Don’t sweat the small stuff,” and then there’s my all-time favorite, “Everything happensContinue reading “July 8, 2021 – Everything happens for a reason.”

July 6, 2021 – Keeping up Appearances

An old British TV show came to mind today when I was sprucing up the front yard. My realtor requested ‘more color’, so my husband built a planter box from some old scrap cedar and rebar, and I filled it with a bunch of clearance plants that I purchased at Lowe’s (see photo). The purposeContinue reading “July 6, 2021 – Keeping up Appearances”

July 2, 2021 – Wishy washy.

Our realtor is going to kill us! My husband and I have been going back-and-forth about whether or not to sell our house. Yesterday, he told me to pull the listing. “Why don’t we give it a month and then if it doesn’t sell, we can pull it,” I suggested, “It’s only been six days.”Continue reading “July 2, 2021 – Wishy washy.”

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”
