I was thinking about my treadmill the other day, and it got me to thinking about the first time we met, a treadmill and I. It was a long time ago. I was still in college, and in order to fight the freshman fifteen I registered at the local gym, which ironically was the third… Continue reading Treadmill Fail
Wowza. It's almost mid January and I am just now feeling rested and prepared to hit the books again. I guess the U schedulers knew what they were doing. Last year was a gigantic year of change for me. I went from full time stay at home mom to a waitress to part-time substitute teacher… Continue reading The calendar is changing, but so am I
My daughter was chosen as Mary for the Christmas pageant at church. As any mother can attest, this is ultimately the biggest compliment we can be given. Well our children, but basically us, the Moms, the people behind the scenes raising little Marys. Right? Well, read on to hear how I was humbled tonight... About… Continue reading Christmas Pageant Fail
I jumped out of my truck yesterday, intent on sprinting into the building so as not to freeze my nose. My sweet black boots were also not meant for this kind of devastatingly cold weather. I mentally prepared myself inside the vehicle: shut off truck, shove door open with your shoulder cuz it's a little… Continue reading My Winter Wonderland
Hey everybody! I made a couple awesome purchases yesterday that I had been saving up for. To the rest of the world, I am probably updating to what was great about a decade ago, but it's an upgrade to me 🙂 The first was for a tablet. I went to three stores looking for tablets… Continue reading Tech fails
In an effort to get my life back, I have been saying "no" to a bunch of things. It's always hard to say "no" to people or things that I like, but it was especially hard to say no to some volunteer activities at church. I knew it had to be done, so I e-mailed… Continue reading Religious Fail, Medical Fail
I had the great fortune of being nominated twice within minutes of each other for the famous Liebster Award. I am quite honored that the second nomination came from The Cheeky Cyclist. Cheeky does an amazing job laying out bicycling information and tips, and it comes from someone who biked over 500 miles in a… Continue reading Liebster Award (2)!
Oh my gosh, you guys, I was nominated for the Liebster Award twice within minutes of each other! It means so much to be acknowledged, especially as a new blog trying to figure out if I am talking to myself or making connections with my readers, whose stories I have LOVED getting to know! The… Continue reading Liebster Award!
I stole the image from Facebook - someone forwarded the weather forecast for this weekend from the National Weather Service. So, yeah. This is where I live. It is always cold. After I return from work today I do not plan to leave the house until after the long holiday. (Pray that my car will… Continue reading Baby It’s Cold Outside
So what's with the jolly looking sharks avoiding precious little candy cane hooks you ask? This is my new holiday anthem, only I haven't figured out the song to go with it... Maybe just the crinkle sound of wrapping paper? Or maybe I'll have to pay more attention in July when Shark Week rolls around… Continue reading Christmas Kindness
