When Do You Know You Are Famous?

I’m not talking about the Beatles kind of fame, but just to be well known for something you alone accomplished.  Secretly that has been one of my innermost dreams in life. While I was working at the Housing Authority, I was well known for several things: The ability to find decent, local, affordable housing for … Continue reading When Do You Know You Are Famous?

WHO PUT THE TROLL IN MY MIRROR?

I got up this morning and went to the bathroom.  Once completing my morning routine, I happened to glance at the mirror on my way out and was shocked!  WHO PUT THAT TOLL IN MY MIRROR? When I was younger, I thought I was pretty – not astonishingly beautiful, just pretty.  This morning’s visit to … Continue reading WHO PUT THE TROLL IN MY MIRROR?

I AM THE NEW FACE OF WHAT?

My sister and I have started keeping notes when we are into our Friday Night Cups (in our case-Bottles). The first reason was very sensible – to do list. We keep thinking of things that we forgot that still need to be done (because any size farm is never-ending chores). A tornado can throw you … Continue reading I AM THE NEW FACE OF WHAT?

DO YOU TALK TO THEM?

There are so many times in life all we seem to focus on is the bad or negative moments from our past.  We really need to change that! I hit another milestone in life this last month. Turned 60-years young on the 16th. Turned 20-years since Columbine (yes, I lived in Denver during that tragedy) … Continue reading DO YOU TALK TO THEM?

Just Sex, Or Something Much Better?

Get out of the gutter everyone!  This post is not about sex, it is about a kiss. I have been watching sappy (yes, chick-flicks) movies since just before Christmas.  Maybe the loss of our older sister put me in the mood for memories, maybe it was just the time of year.  The problem is I … Continue reading Just Sex, Or Something Much Better?

THE 50s SUCK! (Promise not to laugh too hard?)

I’m not talking about the decade of the 1950s.  I am talking about the ages of 50 to 59 in life. Since this year I will be finally moving out of the 50s, I have earned the right to share how disgusting my 50s were for me.  I will start by sharing the obvious things: … Continue reading THE 50s SUCK! (Promise not to laugh too hard?)

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.

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 fault … Continue reading THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS PERFECT.

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!
