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?

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!

“Darcy, We’re Not In Kansas – Yet” – or The Tornado Trip

TOO MUCH TRASH? This can help!

No, I am not talking about garbage in the normal sense.  I am talking about news trash: Politics (just awful over the last couple of years – and NO, I do not approve of our Commander and Chief). Natural disasters (floods, volcanos, hurricanes, fires, and even a huge iceberg). Violence (I swear there is at … Continue reading TOO MUCH TRASH? This can help!

WE ARE NOT ALONE, and I am proud of it!

No, I am not talking about aliens.  I am talking about reading lovers.  Books, ebooks, blogs, comic books and whatever else we can get our hands on –  IT MUST BE READ.   There is one book that stands out in my mind, even to this day – Chatter The Red Squirrel.  I know it … Continue reading WE ARE NOT ALONE, and I am proud of it!

FREE NOW – what a crock!

I get tons of emails on a daily basis. Granted it is all my fault as I have subscribed to most of them.  However, in my defense, I found that when I find an interesting post, go in, sign up and hope to receive more “interesting” posts; I get a load of garbage instead.

How To Know If You Are A LEARN-A-HOLIC?

I have taken a ton of classes over the years.  Many of the classes were just to gain extra knowledge in a specific area.  The funny thing about me is that I never received an actual degree for anything. To this day, I still feel that having that piece of paper hanging on a wall … Continue reading How To Know If You Are A LEARN-A-HOLIC?

Do You Fear Weird Too?

I consider myself pretty weird.  Never really doing the normal things you would expect a child, never-the-less an adult, to do.  Perhaps that is one of the reasons my dad’s nickname for me was Dumb Shit.  (Remember back a few posts – this was not a bad thing, but a very loving way of telling … Continue reading Do You Fear Weird Too?
