Reasons or excuses...

Today is stupid. It's a theme I'm hearing in a few different parts of my world today in various forms. Here, it's cold and rainy and gray. So gray. Mentally and physically. And as I was headed home from a work day that felt too long and sat in traffic for way too long, I started debating just going home, taking a hot shower, crawling into bed and hiding under my comforter with my old friend Netflix. Don't get me wrong, {keep reading}

Another fresh start?

Another fresh start?When I started this blog I had no idea what I was doing. I wrote random things that popped into my brain and outside of my circle, am pretty sure no one else cared and I was ok with that. I blogged about the insanity of dating as a "grown up" and life raising gentlemen. I blogged every minuscule dieting win. I blogged about movies and shows and stuff I liked. Once upon a time I gained a new reader and friend {keep reading}

A different kind of comedy show

A different kind of comedy showHave you ever seen the show "Who's Line is it Anyway?" I remember watching and being in complete awe at how these brilliant comedians could come up with such funny material on the fly. I always assumed it was somehow scripted because no one could be that spontaneously funny. But then I was fortunate enough to attend a live show here in Austin thanks to the generosity of Comedy Sportz Austin and what a fun night. First of all, every show {keep reading}

Car Shopping the Right Way

Car Shopping the Right Way**Sponsored Post** Some of you might remember that fateful New Year's Eve when, while on my way in to work, a semi ran me off the road. Ok maybe not - but I do. It was terrifying. And everything kinda happened all at once and in slow motion at the same time. The semi swerved into my lane... my tank of a car started spinning out of control... Thank goodness that the streets were mostly empty that {keep reading}

The things we hang on to

The things we hang on toIt is a feeling of liberation mixed with sadness as I swept the last dead cricket out of my storage unit... a 10x30 space once filled to the brink with things I loved is now empty. Four years I've been hanging on to that storage unit and the things left inside. Four years that I've been holding on to "someday I'm going to need these again."   I'm glad that so many of those things went to people who needed them- most {keep reading}

Welcome to the Dark Side

The last time I bought a laptop, it was 2007. I was in marriage #2... Just started a new job... I bought a HUGE HP because it had 10-key keypad and ran Windows Vista. A lot of things have changed since then. That lappy was so big it was't exactly … [Read more...]

Running late

Last night we decided to run to a newly vacated duplex to evaluate its condition and schedule all the turn around activities since the new tenant is scheduled to move in next weekend. We were all going to go, and the plan was to be there by 9:30am … [Read more...]

Four Words

I don't recall the first time I saw the image below but it has stuck with me ever since. Actually... it wasn't the image. The image I just googled for, but the words I read years ago.  It was the imagery that stuck... and the idea that an … [Read more...]

Thoughts from the SSA

I haven't blogged in a while. It's not due to lack of material... Although some of what's rattling around in my brain is far too convoluted to put into words because that would make it real and I'm not ready for that yet. Some of what's rattling around in … [Read more...]

The voices in our heads

There has been more than one occasion where I share the voices in our heads... Usually it's about emotion stuff but tonight, as I sit here not wanting to cook the "planned" dinner but fighting off the voices that can be disastrous instead.  For … [Read more...]
