Light Bulb

Well, while my relationship is stagnant, I have managed to find the strength to start taking better care of myself. I woke up Monday and the light bulb went on inside me. I’ve forced myself to start eating better and I’ve been getting up early to workout every morning. I’m finally living one glorious day […]


My almost 9 year relationship is on the verge of falling apart. I’m an emotional wreck. I either stress eat or don’t eat at all. One day I want to hold him & kiss him then the next day all I want to do is scream at him. I’m hurting so deeply inside. I’m so […]

2017…My Year Of Introversion

‚ÄčIntrovert comes from Latin intro-, “inward,” and vertere, “turning.” It describes a person who tends to turn inward mentally. Introverts sometimes avoid large groups of people, feeling more energized by time alone. The opposite of an introvert is an extrovert, who finds energy in interactions with others.  43 years old. The year is 2017. This sounds like the perfect […]

I’d love to be a horse…

Ever watch a horse out grazing in a field? No cares. No worries. They never have to smile. They get attention once in a while but mostly just walk around, kicking at the snow, watching nature, making friends with random creatures that hang around for a little while and leave, then repeat the process. Someone […]

Well, lately my mind has been a cluster of  swirly-gigging helocopters. There’s people in ours lives that as we get older we realize we can’t live with & some […]

Good Ole Days

So my dad is in town visiting. Yesterday was my brothers birthday so we all went out to dinner. We spent a lot of time reminiscing about our grandparents from Smithville Arkansas who have been gone for several years now. We got to talking about our family tree and what our cousins have been up […]

Social media

I’m curious. How long might it take for the people on my Facebook to notice I’ve deactivated it today. Nowadays people rely on our updates on their newsfeed to know how we are doing, how our family is doing, if we’re sad & lonely, if we’re sick, if we are working or pooping. It’s always […]

Tattoo #9

Today my daughter and I got matching tattoo’s. Her 2nd, my 9th. We got the NYC Skyline representing our trip to NYC in 2013. I took her there for her sweet 16 birthday. We took a ride through Central Park, explored the Empire State Building, Battery Park, Hells Kitchen, Cake Boss, NBC Studio, Good Morning […]

Where did I go?

11:06 am It’s been a while since I blogged. I can’t even give a real excuse why. I haven’t been any busier than normal. Nothing really has changed. I’ve just been lazy about it. No biggie. I’ve been thinking about where I was this time last year. I see posts on FB about my past […]
