January Goals

I missed the beginning of this year, but truthfully, I didn’t want to write. I’ve been dealing with symptoms of┬áseasonal affect disorder and am just now feeling better. Depression is real and when it reals its ugly head, the logical side of my brain argues with the feeling side of my brain and I pretty […]

A Week For Myself

With how busy things have been between family and work the last four months, I haven’t taken much time for myself. Not from a vacation standpoint. So, I took this week off. It’s something I think is important to do. The last few times that I’ve had time off, it was for something that was […]

Four Months? Oops!

Well, almost four months. I needed to unplug. I couldn’t necessarily unplug as much as I wanted too, but not feeling obligated to write and share things felt nice. Did a lot happen? Yep. And I’m not even sure where to start, or if its worth back tracking to explain things. There were weddings, life […]

Paint Nite – Polar Bear in the Night?

I am making up the name of the painting because I cannot for the life of me remember it. We’ve talked off and on about participating in a paint nite, so I finally said, why not. The first step was getting tickets. Now we think we’d like to do this at least once a month, […]

Let’s Try This

I never seem to plan things accordingly when I get ready to start on a new project, so I found myself having some fun with this new template builder, managed to reset everything in my database (and lost all of my images as a result). It’s going to take me a bit to rebuild the […]

Crammed Pack and Busy

The end of May snuck up on me before I realized it. I spent it down in my fiance’s neck of the woods, meeting family, friends, and doing all of the sight seeing. So, I got in Thursday evening and then Friday we hit Universal Studios in Orlando. It was amazing. We explored two of […]

A Normal Week’s Stress Compressed

Last week… felt like a whole month. Monday, the government shut down for the second half of the day (as compared to my normal work schedule). However, things did not go as expected. We were provided with one set of instructions on Friday. Pretty much, plan to be furloughed. So when everyone came in Monday […]

September Goals

I’m a few days late. But I have a good excuse! I got that rogue tooth yanked out and I’ve been recovering. My mouth has been achy, but, thankfully, not so achy today. So reviewing august’s goals, I failed at the 2 posts a week, so that’s back on for this month. Even though I […]

Trying That Plan Thing

I think one of the things I’ve been struggling with (especially when it comes to fulfilling my “post twice” a week goal) is a lack of proper planning. Back in the day it was super easy for me to just plan out topics for interest areas and keep going from there. I haven’t really made […]

August Goals

I’m going to see if I can actually make this happen this time around. I’m still feeling like I’m in a funk, but I don’t feel like grey clouds are hanging over me either, so I’m taking it as a positive sign. So just a few goals: 1. Blog twice a week. 2. Work out […]
