Okay seriously…it has been raining and cloudy with very little reprieve for WEEKS and WEEKS. I can only handle so much rain and dreary weather before I start itching to lay in a tanning bed. Which I can’t. You know, with that pesky skin cancer I keep having to get removed and all. Argh! Shaking … More Raindrops. Keep. Falling. On. My. Head.
I’m listening to the book A Case of Redemption by Adam Mitzner (great so far!) and in it one of the characters says “sometimes in a leap of faith, the leap’s got to come first, and then the faith follows.” It was just the line I needed to hear at the exact time I needed to hear … More Leap. Before. You. Look.
This week my husband started his summer session of school. Through the end of July he will be in class each Wednesday and Thursday night. Whatever will I do with myself?! Today I had an ambitious list of things I’d hoped to accomplish tonight. Grocery shopping, the gym, walking the dog, and cleaning my office. … More Footloose. And. Fancy. Free.
I’m actually not sure of that…in fact…I’m not certain the sun, or summer for that matter, will ever be making an appearance in Minnesota again. So we have that going for us. Which is nice. I woke up this morning, having just enjoyed a relaxing and lovely weekend with my husband, and I felt…off. I did … More The. Sun. Will. Come. Out.
Ahh…Memorial Day Weekend. A time to kick-off summer, relax on the back of a boat, drink cold beer, eat barbecue, and enjoy the sun. That is…unless your me. In which case? Memorial Day Weekend is the three days you help your husband write an 18 page paper. As I’ve mentioned before, my husband is in … More Go. Team.
Okay…so this post? This post here? There is a very good possibility that this post is going to be all over the board. So…I’m sorry about that…but you’ve been warned. When I was in my mid-twenties, a high school classmate of mine was murdered. It was…beyond horrifying and devastating. My high school community came together … More All. You. Need. Is.
It’s been a crazy past couple of weeks. I have 57 posts swirling through my head but I haven’t forced myself to sit down long enough to get them on paper…or…typed up as the case may be. So I’m taking this opportunity (oldest little girl in gymnastics for an hour) to write the first one (of … More Like. The. Movies.
When I was little, my mom worked a lot, and on weekends I would often tag along. She was a Promotions Director for a local radio station so weekends were filled with things like concerts, giveaways, and parades. Because she was single, she couldn’t get sitters for every single promotion she had to work, so … More She. Works. Hard. For. The. Money.
I’m not going to sugar coat. It’s been a hell of a day. This morning we learned that my aunt passed away. I’ve mentioned before that we’ve been struggling with some family health crises. This was one of them. She was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer a year ago. In the past month we knew her … More The. Real. Things.
When I was little, as far back as kindergarten, there were boys I considered good enough to marry. Not many, mind you, I was incredibly picky…but they existed. Like other girls, I spent time attaching these boys’ last names with mine. Carrie Grover (Michael. We got in trouble in kindergarten for talking too much and … More The. Mrs.
