Still Sorting

I am normally all about the last minute. Down to the wire, middle of the night, go-time, crunch time. Whatever phrase someone wants to put on it, I’m that girl. Plans start off the same as every other normal organized human being, but somewhere along the way I get lost. I’m susceptible to shiny lights…

Static Cling

I’ve only posted twice in April, well this is technically post number three. I’m not sure why.  I’ve been working on other things, busy with life, wasting time lusting after Idris Elba.  I don’t know. Things have taken priority over the laundry room and honestly I haven’t had much to say. Two posts in one…

Goofy Slippers

I’ve been in my fictional worlds lately.  It’s time to pop my head out and say something from the laundry room, but I need the help of a random word.  Let’s see… Today’s post is brought to you by the letters L, A, U, G, and H. A laugh really shows a person unlike anything else,…

Pin Stripes

I need to be more serious.  Expensive shoe wearing, fine leather bag carrying, author portrait where I’m looking over my shoulder in some way, serious.  A scarf that’s not fuzzy with every color in the crayon box is in order or maybe even…lip liner. If I become more serious, play the part, then I will…

Easy Strider Shoes

Why am I writing another blog post when I should be writing a book?  Why when I swipe my credit card at the gas station does it stop before my tank is full, even though I entered my zip code like a good lemming?  Why do people have children and then ignore them?  Why, even…

New and Improved Detergent

It seems that Brazil nuts help with anxiety and citrus is good for stress, according to Dr. Oz. I’m not a Dr. Oz follower, but at the same time when I’ve seen a snippet of him on television, or read an article, I like him.  I should say, I like what he has to say…

Express Wash

Patience is something I do not have… I am not a patient person and there has been some fallout. I am not a good cook. I cook everything on high and I rush putting the meal together because I do not have patience. My children look at me sometimes like I am a raving lunatic…

Vintage Scarf

I found one of my old journals last night.  Below was my entry on January 6, 2005. I am thankful and more aware of just how blessed I am. I am thankful for: The early morning through my half open eyes when I get to sleep in A foot rub right in the arch of…
