Meet Fuzz Lightyear We brought this little dude home yesterday after work. He spent most of the night under the vanity, which is where everyone we've brought home has spent at least their first night. There's a blanket under there for such an occasion, or just when someone needs some alone time. It happens. Anyway,… Continue reading Sorry, I can’t come to work today, I have kittenitis
I finally finished the last few episodes of Outlander that's on Netflix. So what did I do? Started Bridgerton. Everyone raved about it for so many months, and I needed something to watch while I did other things like get my planner in order for the next week and the next month. Meanwhile, one of… Continue reading What did I get myself into?
Everyone has pet peeves. It's just a fact of life. Everyone has things that annoy them. The sound of people chewing, being micromanaged, when people are late, whatever. But you know what my biggest one is? People that won't do anything to help themselves. These are the people that whine, moan, and cry about their… Continue reading Pet peeve
So we ended 2020 talking about my goals for 2021. But they aren't going to magically make themselves happen. Behind the achievable goals is a well laid plan. And we all know how much I love plans. So here we go. I'm going to cherry-pick some points rather than going through the whole list again.… Continue reading Now that you know my goals, let’s talk about how I’m going to accomplish them
About a month ago I posted about my goals for 2020 and how I fared. Not too badly. I definitely set myself up for failure on a few of them, and on others I sold myself short and was able to accomplish so much more. So now it's time for the 2021 set. I don't… Continue reading Goals for 2021
Thinking about all of the things that I'm grateful for made me think about the goals I set at the beginning of the year and how many, if any, I've accomplished, as well as what I hope to accomplish next year. PersonalThere's been a lot of tests this year in my personal life. But one… Continue reading Thanksgiving got me thinking
I think there's a big difference between wishes and goals. Wishes are things that we dream about, goals are things that we work toward. And yes, sometimes wishes can be goals, but at least in my personal life there's a big distinction. Do I wish for one night with Chris Evans and/or Chris Pine? Sure.… Continue reading “If there’s a single lesson that life teaches us, it’s that wishing doesn’t make it so.” ― Lev Grossman, The Magicians
So I redesigned the blog tonight. Totally revamped. New name, new logo, new design. This blog has morphed far beyond what it was originally intended, like the evolution of a species. That's a good thing. This has become a therapeutic outlet to get the thoughts out of my head and onto something that lets me… Continue reading “We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep.” – Shakespeare, The Tempest
I'm not a big fan of resolutions. At least not in the way that most people associate with New Years. Saying "I want to lose 40 pounds" is all well and good, but how are you going to do it. I think that making a plan and having it in place before the 1st is… Continue reading New year, new you and all that jazz
I'm normally not one that's big on New Year's resolutions. But I need to make some changes in my life, and New Year's seemed like as good a time as any. So I quit smoking. I did switch to vaping, but my intention is by the end of the year to be off of that… Continue reading New year, new me?
