Moving and Ruts
For weeks now I have not had any desire to pack. Or declutter. Or anything related to moving. I think I have finally figured out why: So many times in life, I have looked forward to something and it's never happened. I guess in the back of my mind that this...

Friends..
Do you consider yourself a good friend? If someone needs your help, do you offer to help? And if that person takes you up on that offer, do you actually follow through with whatever it is? I would like to think I am a good friend to people. I try to help pe...

Foul Mood
Is it okay that once in awhile we all seem to have had enough? That it gets old people telling us how we should feel? Or act? Or that things we do in life aren't "right"? How about you all just put a sock in it already! I had probably one of the worst weeke...

Please..
I am pretty tired of being told how stupid I am for wanting to move to Ohio. Maybe not in so many words, but I think if I hear 1 more person tell me how much I am going to regret the move, I will probably scream! So friggin' what if I do end up regretting i...

Friday the 13th
Is it a superstitious day for you? Do bad things happen to you on this day? Car won't start? Stubbed your toe? Messed up at work? At home? Fight with the S.O.? Well, you get the idea? To some, there just couldn't be a worse day! I am on the other end of the...

Valentine's Day
What are your feelings on this "Holiday"? Too commercialized? Is it a "Hallmark" holiday? Shouldn't someone love you all year long and show it everyday? Not just on a day someone says so? Regardless, when you have Kids, you do what needs to be done. You mak...
