WHAT DO YOU HANG ON TO AND WHY?

What (if anything) do you hang on to?  I have a ton of memories, but (even after the fire) I have only a few physical mementos.  One of the greatest treasures I have is a couple of letters that were sent between my mom and my Aunt Elaine. I know it’s hard for some of … Continue reading WHAT DO YOU HANG ON TO AND WHY?

NO MORE GOALS FOR ME – unless…

I’ve had it with vows, goals, and resolutions!  Anything that has to do with The Big Picture or end result is just ticking me off.  Every year, all year long, I go through the same motions of setting up a ton of goals that I want to reach at any given time.  Then (usually months … Continue reading NO MORE GOALS FOR ME – unless…

THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS PERFECT.

I’ve had it with that word – perfect! I believe we should start a petition to get it removed from everything. If you stop and think about it, no one or nothing is, or ever will be, perfect. The Webster Dictionary definition is: ************************************************************************************** Definition of perfect (Entry 1 of 3) 1a: being entirely without … Continue reading THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS PERFECT.

IN A MINUTE or two, or three.

“I’ll get it in a minute.”  My favorite go-to phrase when I forgot to do something.  Usually, it is because I am very good at the “look, a chicken” thing.  Those of you not familiar with that joke, it expresses how a person can be dead on target to do one thing, then gets pulled … Continue reading IN A MINUTE or two, or three.

I DID NOT CHECK THAT BOX!

It’s been an interesting year; I will give it that: Kid-a-geddon March and April. Tornado apocalypse July (still working on clean up/fix up from that) Death of a beloved older sister (unexpected). (October – just one week before her birthday) Grandson's nose bleeds from hell. (October into November) Grandson middle of the night seizures – … Continue reading I DID NOT CHECK THAT BOX!

MELT DOWN / SOLID UP.

I had a pretty severe meltdown the other morning. This used to happen to me a couple of times a year, and now it only happens about once a year. The key is what is happening that year. If you have been reading this blog for a while now, you realize that I have been … Continue reading MELT DOWN / SOLID UP.

IS THE NEW THING WORKING?

Last week Friday 9/7/18 (grandson’s birthday so I would remember) was just my first day at trying to switch out my coffee for green tea.  Here are the things that I have already noticed: I have been battling my first kid came home from school cold, and it’s been an ugly one. The worst part … Continue reading IS THE NEW THING WORKING?

THEY DID IT AGAIN – YEAH!

I love getting emails from other how-to-er’s (yes, I just created a new word, and a lot of you are not going to like it – get over it.) all over the world.  One of the first places that I connected with is https://thewhoot.com/.  They have brought me so many wonders over the last ten … Continue reading THEY DID IT AGAIN – YEAH!

I FIGURED OUT MY SECRET!

I have been asked so many times over my 50+ years, how do I manage to stay happy and keep going?  The last four years I have been struggling with the answer to this question.  While driving my Grandson to another Therapy appointment, I came upon the answer:  DON’T DWELL!    I began thinking about … Continue reading I FIGURED OUT MY SECRET!
