Laughter, the Best Medicine

Hello friends and happy Thursday! I just had to share something hilarious from last night. Our daughter and her two children (age 8 and 4) are living with us. It’s been a big change for all of us and we often have such fun! Last night my husband came home late from work; he’s been…

I’m A Fan

Hello friends and happy Wednesday! I know you all love Wednesday the same as I do because it’s the halfway point through the work week! So the other day I was mistaken for a MLBB fan. True- I was wearing my Boston Red Sox tee- but it’s the cutest Tee and in a great color-RED…

Dark Shadows

Hello friends! Happy Monday! I took a break from work for a few days and took a much needed road trip but now I’m back! Before my days off, (exactly four days before) I was pulled over by one of our finest police officers due to a confusion about my speed in a school zone. Confusion because I was sure I had not been speeding and he said “I clocked you at 26” and laughed 😂😂 I didn’t really think it was THAT funny- my life has been difficult lately (although I didn’t think I was particularly mournful that morning)…

Dodging the Punches

Hey friends! I thought I would share some of my difficulties lately and how I’m dodging the punches. Someone very close to me is involved in the dissolution of her marriage due to a emotionally abusive spouse. Her spouse also knows my ex husband (I divorced him about 17 years ago). I have found out that her husband and my ex shit talk about me throughout some family events (involving my adult children and grandchildren- those are most events I continue to be around my ex husband). I also found out that my ex inquired (to the person close to…

History of Brave Women

Hello Friends! Happy Thursday! I was listening to a podcast this morning by Rachel Hollis-interviewing Lisa Kleypas discussing her writing career and historical events that shape women’s lives. I thought I would share some history of a brave woman I know. My grandma Lindberg, Norma R Lindberg was born in 1920 and died in 2009 so I had time as an adult to get to know my grandma Lindberg. My other grandma, Faye H Dana died in 1982 and I didn’t get to know her as well as an adult; I was only 17 when she passed away from cancer.…

Shakespeare Confusion

Hey friends! I hope you’ve all had a great weekend! We’ve actually had a lot of sunshine the last few days and it’s been wonderful! I don’t miss the ❄️ Hubs and I had a fun, yet super confusing experience at the theatre last night. We attended “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead” which follows Hamlet through these two minor characters. I have never ever ever been so confused in a play before. These two characters start out the play by themselves but they are confused themselves and keep finding themselves going in and out the story and characters of Hamlet.…

Trolling the Junior Section

Hello friends and Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a good weekend! I had the best time with four of my grandkids, they are so precious; I am very blessed. Not to mention they are a hoot! One grandson in response to a question, did you get enough bacon tonight said “Yes (in a news…

Times I Didn’t Listen (and why I’m proud)

Hello friends! I’ve been listening/watching several inspirational speakers (Rachel Hollis, Ashley Lemieux, Mike Lemieux, and Stuart Edge) which is really pumping me up to be myself! ❤️ Today I thought I would share the times in my life that I DID NOT LISTEN to others opinions of me and that makes me proud of myself. Many years ago in admiring (someone close to me-their coworker physical workout and body improvement) I said “I want to do that, I want to do what they did” – to which my loved one said- “you can’t do that, what makes you think you…

Pastels for the Win (Ter)

Hello friends! I had a wonderful day off (thanks to all the past presidents)-work holiday. But tomorrow I go back to work 🙁 I wish I could figure out a way to get paid and NOT work. I haven’t figured that out yet 😂🤣 Anyway! It’s still WINTER and one way I cheer myself up…
