What doesn’t motivate you?

A few months ago, I joined a fitness group sponsored by our county health department. We walked for 2 days a week and I loved it. It held me accountable and I knew that I would get in at least 2 days a week of a good solid workout. I think I only missed 3 days during the whole season…

The Case for Waterproof Mascara

This morning as I was packing my lunch to take with me to work, I heard the neighbor’s dog barking incessantly in my yard. This is unusual because she’s normally a fairly quiet and jovial pup and I don’t typically hear her barking. I went outside to see Neighbor Dog barking and jumping and having a conniption fit around a…

Stress is stress

    I just deleted a whole post in which I whine incessantly about the money being poured into repairs and expenses we are incurring as a result of a lot of different things going on in our (my family’s) life right now. Then I decided that I was being petty and ridiculous because my problems are very first-world in nature.…

We got new carpet installed in our house a couple of weeks ago and…

I was running errands after work yesterday when my daughter texted me that she needed chocolate chips so she could make some cookies for a couple of special teachers at school. Since I was on that end of town, I decided to quickly stop at the sad grocery store to get the chocolate chips. Surely you know what I mean by the…

When a bowl is a cup

Today is a rainy, cold, gray day and I just really wanted soup for lunch. The closest place to get soup is Chili’s, so I ordered a bowl of southwest chicken soup online and went to pick it up. When I got there, the waitress put my bag on the counter and went to cash me out but her computer was…
