Getting Help From A Friend

My friend and fellow blogger, Candy, helped me revamp my blog and I couldn't be more excited about it. You see, I have many talents but customizing a blog is not one of them. She put a lot of work into it; more than I realized she would have to when I asked (maybe begged) her … Continue reading Getting Help From A Friend

You Just Don’t Know What Tomorrow Brings

My cousin died. But please don't express your sympathies to me, I hadn't seen her in years and years. I'm still sad. But I'm more sad for her immediate family because they have to go through IT. Through the loss and the change of definition of what daily life entails. Through all that stuff that really, … Continue reading You Just Don’t Know What Tomorrow Brings

I Want To Quit My Job And Clip Coupons

So I have quit my job several times but it never takes. The first time, I was offered part time instead. When I still found it hard to keep up with because we were moving, I quit again and it was suggested that I hang in there until after the move and see how I … Continue reading I Want To Quit My Job And Clip Coupons

I Wanted To Save My Dad

I had to take a First Aid/CPR class at work, the other day. It would be safe to say that I didn't want to. Initially, that was just because I'm lazy. But, as it progressed, it was hitting a little too close to home. See, if you bring up anything related to the heart, I'm … Continue reading I Wanted To Save My Dad

Singing Is Embarrassing When They Hear You

When I was in kindergarten, my mom decided to play friendship matchmaker with a little girl in our neighborhood and me. We hadn't lived there that long so I didn't really know the kids yet.  As my mom asked the girl her name and introduced us, I wanted to run and hide. But that girl ended … Continue reading Singing Is Embarrassing When They Hear You

Everybody Hurts

I was talking to a mom of someone I knew in high school and she was telling me how her daughter was often made fun of in school. I was shocked. So shocked that I called a mutual friend and asked her if she had any idea. (She did not.) You see, this girl always seemed very confident … Continue reading Everybody Hurts

No Secret Sisters For Me!

So, recently, a friend posted a Secret Sister invite on her facebook page. Like many others, I was enticed by the idea of 6-36 presents. I'm not gonna lie, I am pro-present. I absolutely love getting presents. Now to be fair, I also love giving presents so it's not that I'm selfish or anything like … Continue reading No Secret Sisters For Me!

Hired For a Job That I’m Not Doing

I want to be happy. I want to feel fulfilled. I want to figure out what my passion is and follow it. But, I'm not. And, I haven't (yet). A couple of months ago, I started working. It's not because I wanted to. It's not because I thought I needed time away from my kids. But, I … Continue reading Hired For a Job That I’m Not Doing

A Geeky House Makeover

Brian is a man who needs a hobby. When he comes home from work after a day of dealing with customers who are often less than polite, he wants to be mentally stimulated. I guess he needs to know that he is something besides Brian the store manager. Now me, after a day of momming and … Continue reading A Geeky House Makeover

Trying To Eat Healthier But I Hate Healthy Food

I'm not an adventurous eater. We all know this. Well, anyone who has gone out to eat with me knows this. 🙂 I'm not an overly healthy eater, either. Before the kids showed up, Brian and I had many conversations about how we wouldn't pass it on to our kids. The good news is Brian is adventurous.  So … Continue reading Trying To Eat Healthier But I Hate Healthy Food
