Hello! I hope everyone out there had a nice Thanksgiving, although it probably wasn’t the usual celebration for most of us. We had a celebration the weekend before with just our two daughters and sons-in-law. On Thanksgiving day, the kids had a celebration with the in-laws, so it was just David and me and we… Continue reading Triple whammy
Good morning! I hope you’ve had a good week. I admit, this week was challenging for me. Between feeling sad about losing Jasper, some issues at work, the continuing pandemic, and the upcoming election, I’ve been feeling stressed. I’ve been telling myself for years that I need to start meditating to calm my mind, but… Continue reading Unstress
Disclaimer: My husband and I have been lucky enough to continue to have jobs throughout this pandemic. I’ve been able to work remotely at home. Our kids are grown, so we don’t have the stress of balancing work and taking care of kids. It’s just the two of us and our two dogs. We have… Continue reading Returning back to “normal”
I did myself a favor this week, and it was such a gift I gave myself – I majorly cut back on the news. I watched enough news in the morning to hear the headlines and the weather and THAT. WAS. IT. for the day. I cleaned up my Facebook feed so that I wouldn’t… Continue reading I did myself a HUGE favor
Good Sunday morning to you! It’s day one hundred thousand million of staying home and social distancing. It feels that way, doesn’t it? I’ll be honest, it really hasn’t been that bad for me personally. I’m generally a home body, and I have really enjoyed working from home. I enjoy hanging out with the dogs… Continue reading Week 4? 8? 20? of quarantine

I hope you’re not hoarding all of the toilet paper and that you’re washing your hands. If you’re reading this blog, I probably know you personally and I have no doubt that you’re… Continue reading What a week!
Good morning! I know it’s been a while since I’ve written anything. The last six weeks have been insane. My youngest daughter and son-in-law bought a house which needed some renovations before they were able to move in. We finally got them moved in last weekend. Work has also been extremely busy. I have been… Continue reading MM100 – COMPLETED!
It’s been a while since I’ve written a post. Life has been really busy since the holidays. I thought that things would slow down, but nope. Busy is good, though; it keeps my mind occupied during these winter months. The last couple of weekends we’ve had snow, ice, and frigid temperatures, so it’s good to… Continue reading Keeping It Real
Good morning! I had a very productive day yesterday. I worked out, I had tons of energy, and I put a game plan in place for meeting my 2020 goals. And then today I woke up feeling really sad and anxious. The fires in Australia are just heartbreaking. All of the animals that are dying. … Continue reading Game Plan
Happy New Year! I hope you all had a fun, safe celebration! David and I had a quiet, relaxed day yesterday. We saw the new Star Wars movie, which we enjoyed very much, and then we had a couple of beers and an early dinner after. We spent New Year’s Eve at home, watching TV… Continue reading Word for 2020
