When I worked with the youth in church I constantly told them whenever they went to a meeting they should always bring paper and a pen to take notes. I’d like to elaborate on that and share the three things to always bring to a meeting.Continue reading
Yesterday, I celebrated my tenth anniversary writing my little blog. It is now my second longest commitment I’ve ever undertaken (my first being my current job that beat it by four years). While it may not be an impressive blog to you, the fact that I am still here is pretty impressive to me. I don’t always stick to things so way to go, self!Continue reading
I am not a winter person. There is nothing I really enjoy about the season. From the bitter coldness to the short days I am not a fan of any of it. I am much more a summer person. From the heat to the longer days I am pretty much a fan. Here is something I realized this past winter though. Winter is actually the season of light while summer actually is the season of darkness.Continue reading
First of all, I just made that title up. As far as I know, it is not a real thing. It’s more a personal observation.
I find it rather annoying when someone corrects me. Especially when it is done without solicitation. I suppose I am not humble enough to receive correction.

But cable is dying away so he is about to have no choice. I thought for sure if I enticed him with a John Wayne movie he would buy into the streaming television choice. What I learned that night though is not all John Wayne movies are created equal. His early work are unintentional comedies as he outgrew Marion Morrison and perfected becoming, well, John Wayne.Continue reading
Remember this beauty tag line from the 80’s?
”I don’t intend to grow old gracefully. I intend to fight it every step of the way.”Continue reading
Here is my latest pondering: is it winter or old age that is making me cranky? I hope it’s the former but fear it’s the latter since I’m cranky year round these days. Dang me, that is not who I want to be but man, I sure get annoyed easily these days. Somehow, somewhere along the way I’ve become the crazy cat lady minus the cats or one cranky old broad.

Some things must be learned by experience. Continue reading
