We all have that one blogger that we just adore and inspires us.  Truth be told I have a couple, but in the goals department no one beats Mavis over at One Hundred Dollars a Month.  She is a rockstar at goals.  Last year, I watched and read, and cheered as she posted her goals […]

I did it. The desire to do it came a couple of years ago. For one specific reason. And it changed on me. I don’t really know why. Maybe its being married for twenty years to one. Maybe its that all three of my sons are one. I was left out. The final preparer of […]

This morning I decided I really need to spend some time in reflection and evaluation of multiple areas of my life. What I want to do. What I need to do. Just looking at those two sentences the “need” should be before the “want”.  There are 150.10 gazillion things that I should be doing right […]

What’s happening around your neck of the woods today? (Ignore the dates on the pics…apparently there is an issue ~’oh Oak Tree, fitz the camera pweease.)  Here we are having working/resting day….that’s sounds strange. 🙂 A nasty, sicko child resting on the couch: A generous younger brother playing games with the sick one: A very […]

Technology, the time saver….I think not

And cell phones ~ those are pesky things too.  You […]

Have you ever had deep-fried pickles? Okay, stop going ‘oooo, yuck’. Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it. They are amazing. So good.
