Honesty…sometimes that’s a tough one.  I’m not talking about blatant lies like, “I used to be an Olympic downhill skier.” I struggle with everyday little white lies like, “Really, I can’t even see that zit.”  How can I tell the person, “You know, that really is bad and it just sort of jumps right off…

Casual Friday

It is Friday. When I was younger I never understood older people saying, “Thank God it’s Friday.” That sounded so defeatist to me. If you hate your job so much that you are just living for Friday then you need to change it up.  These people are stuck in a rut.  I will never, ever be in…

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…

Holy Sheets!

The washing machine is fixed. It occurred to me that I never let anyone know the washing machine is fixed. I am back in business! Why are people drawn to organized religion. I have never been an organized religion type of person. Whatever that means. The Church and the idea that someone else gets me…

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…
