Couch Potato Plan

Hello friends! How are you all this wonderful Wednesday?? I’m so glad the week is half over. I’m telling you my training was tough tough tough. It’s the most difficult thing I’ve done for years! We spent the whole training in silence which was not as difficult as spending (25) 25 minute meditation-which means I…

Warrior Weekend

Hello friends! Happy Labor Day weekend! For me it really was a Labor Day yesterday! 😂 We drove up to my parents home in Wyoming Friday night (late Friday night- I discovered how hard it is to see on the toad when the cars traveling toward me have new headlights)! Or maybe it’s age- IDK! Anyway yesterday morning we wore our grubby clothes (my sisters remarked they were glad none of us were dressed up and are au naturel for this fun filled day😂🤣)and rode in the back of the truck toward the back end of the property next to…

Brutal Deliverance

Hey friends! All this week I’ve been in a work paid training to assist my clients in moving beyond their trauma. The intervention is DBT PE-Dialectical Behavior Therapy- Prolonged Exposure. The last two days we discussed (8:30-430) rationale for treatment, statistics showing drastic improvement or elimination of PTSD symptoms and structure of the intervention. Today and tomorrow we watched videos of actual sessions (signed release of clients in video to use for training-no names) to help us understand how to administer the treatment. One thing about watching the videos of sessions is that we as participants are privy to the…

Wish List

Hey friends! How are you all on this fine Wednesday? I hope everyone is well and happy 🙂 I thought I would share a little bit of my fun trip to Wyoming last weekend! I left on Thursday and returned Sunday. Thursday I had some fun in the thriving metropolis of Thayne Wyoming (actually it’s…

Celebrate with Shorts

Hello Friends! How was your weekend? I hope you and Monday are making peace with each other 🙂 Me and Mondays don’t always get along that why I wish this for you LOL I thought I would share a new found discovery: I haven’t worn shorts in about 16 years. I think I was always…

Stretch First

Hey friends! I have another birthday this week and it’s a good reminder not to do stupid things! My co worker (probably 15 years younger than I and parent to a young girl on cheer squad) on Friday said “I’ll give you $50 to do this”… and she straightened out her leg and propped it…

Real Talk about Hair Loss

Hello friends! I thought today would be somewhat different. I want to share my experience with hair loss. In 2012 I was diagnosed with Hashimotos disease and my thyroid surgically removed. Back in 2004 I was diagnosed with hypothyroid and I think things went downhill (health wise) after that, although the last couple of years…

Heat of Summer

Hello friends! I hope you’re staying cool and safe in this hot summer! This morning at 830 it was already 80 degrees, so I’m guessing it’s gonna be a scorcher again! I have a black car with black interior and it’ll be a little toasty when I get off work! How do you stay cool…

Fashion Addicted Self Care

Hey friends! How was your Monday? Glad it’s over??? Me too LOL Last week I took a values assessment (work related) and I discovered in four values areas: work, relationships, leisure, and personal growth-health that I am lacking in the leisure area. Who knew?? I graded myself two dots away from “bullseye” in work and relationships but then realized I work pretty hard and am dedicated- along with being connected in the vital relationships in my life- so I thought that might be a judgement of myself. I graded two dots away from bullseye in personal growth/health because of my…

Destroy an Ugly Car!

Hello friends! I’m in the middle of a relaxing evening and hubs wants to watch a James Bond movie. I’m always down for Bond; and we started Quantom of Solace. (I love Sean Connery although I think Daniel Craig is best bond evaa). One thing I notice as the movie starts, DANG IT! THEYRE DESTROYING ANOTHER GORGEOUS CAR! Seriously how many Aston Martin automobiles must die in the name of Bond?? Couldn’t we just sacrifice a Pinto or a Nova or (LOL) a Prius?? Why can’t the pretty cars be safe?? I really like cars; did I mention that?? Just…
