Back At It

I’m back. Again. Did you miss me? No? I didn’t figure you did, but I thought I’d ask anyway. A lot has happened in the year since my last spellbinding post. For one thing, I lost the database to my blog when I switched hosts. Thankfully I had a backup, but my images didn’t transfer…

The Summer of my Content

It’s been close to three months since I quit working and I feel really good about the successes I’ve achieved this summer. If these accomplishments are any indication of what the rest of my years will be like, then I can look forward to a very fulfilled and satisfied life. I watched the first four…

Regressing in Retirement

I have my first week of retirement under my belt. I would consider it a bit of a fail. I didn’t do 15 minutes of writing every day, nor did I do 15 minutes of decluttering or organizing a day. Do you know what I did do for 15 minutes a day? Nothing. Actually that’s…

On The Road To A Great 2015

2015 is a big year with some huge milestones for me. In May I will celebrate 10 years as a cancer survivor and in November I’ll be a half a century old. My 40’s have not been at all what I had planned them to be. I’m fairly certain that if I didn’t have a…

Oy Vey, Such a Night!!

In roughly three months Taylor will be eligible for his driver’s license. While the thought of turning him loose with a fast and heavy machine scares me, I also look forward to it. My life would be just a tad bit easier – like tonight. Here’s this evening’s schedule: 4:30 leave the house, drive to…

The Whole Work Thing

Nearly 14 years ago when Todd and I decided to take the leap of faith and have me quit work it was a scary, scary thing. Taylor was three and Katie was a baby and financially it probably wasn’t the smartest thing to do. It was the exact right thing to do for the family,…

New Beginnings

If someone were to ask me what my favorite day is I would normally answer “Saturday”. I do love Saturday. Somewhere in my archives I mentioned I love Saturday so much I would marry it if it would have me and I weren’t already married. But right now I think Monday is my favorite day.…

Taking a Break

I’ve decided I have too many irons in the fire and not enough hired help. There’s the spring cleaning, end of school year activities and a few writing projects. Never mind the usual stuff — cooking, laundry, work, etc. – that I never seem to be caught up on. Maybe if I didn’t spend quite…
