There are few things in the world that I loathe more than being late for something. I will turn around and not attend an event rather than be late to it, and this is a constant point of conflict with my husband and I. He wants to arrive exactly on time with no time spent … Continue reading LATE and How I Loathe Being Late
So, at work I make a ton of phone calls where I have to get certain bits of information verbally confirmed. I research each first request, call, ask the same questions, and have different processes depending on the answers. I've done about 500 of these phone calls (according to my stats) now, which is a … Continue reading I Sound Like a Flight Attendant #Lifegoals
My husband and I were talking recently about what the happiest periods in our lives were, and I strongly believe mine is Right Now. And then I thought about it a little more. Our parents are all alive. Our siblings are alive. We visit them often. In fact, every Friday or so we visit my … Continue reading Those Happy Golden Years
I spent all of Thursday attending an event at a High School nearby, and it was so hard. I was so uncomfortable and awkward, and you would think I had gotten over this in the last 15 years, but it made me feel really insecure. Seriously, the kids weren't at all interested in me - … Continue reading What Is It About High Schools?
Second practice from the Finding Your Voice class I bought from Holly Lisle. This is not an affiliate link, although if you decide you want to buy a class from her, you can contact me, and I'll set on up so we both benefit. *smile* There was a bloody knife in his hand, and he … Continue reading Finding Your Voice: Practice 06
My car, a 2001 Subaru Forester, has been acting oddly. No power, choking and sputtering, unable to get up to speed. My husband thought it was the knock sensor, as this is a common problem with Subaru and had occurred on his Legacy Wagon. He went out and pulled it off to check it, and … Continue reading My Car Is Off to the Shop Again
If you know me, you know that I have food allergies. One is wheat, which is uncomfortable but not dangerous - hives, phlegm, coughing, some wheezing, and stomach pain. It's the one that almost killed me years ago because we didn't know about it. I would eat wheat, it would foam up out of my … Continue reading In Good News I Did Not Die
It's a well known fact among my family and friends that I'm impossible to wake up and just plain stupid once I'm awake, not to mention snarly. It's bad enough that to get up for work each day, I have a bottle of caffeine pills across the room with the alarm. An old fashioned, metal … Continue reading Ring, Ring! And How I Was a Jerk to My Momma
Our church's Chili Cook Off was this Sunday, and I participated just like usual. It's for some Mission Trip or another. I'm an awful person because I don't pay any attention and just want to support the church. It's ten dollars to compete, and I always compete. Not because I'll ever win, but because that's … Continue reading Chili Cook Off!
I was super excited about our church's Chili Cook Off this weekend, and I spent Saturday night cooking, and we went Sunday morning and were there until the auction, and then I took a lovely nap. You know what I did not do? I didn't remember to sit down and write my blog posts like … Continue reading Well That’s Embarrassing!
