Let’s Get Physical!

I may be late to the party, but I finally gave in and bought a Fitbit! Yeah, I know…..just another gadget to give me a false sense of accomplishment. Believe me…..the topic of getting one has come up many times and I know a…

Feeling……..Lost

I guess it is normal and expected, but knowing that doesn’t seem to help. I feel so very lost and empty…..and, yet, conflicted! Losing a parent is difficult, yes….but, when it is a mother – in particular, the breaking of a strong mother/daughter bond –…

August…..Seriously???

Today is August 1st! Really! More than half of 2014 – and, more importantly, more than 1/2 the summer –  is gone……in the blink of an eye! Remember that bucket list I wrote about in April (click here to refresh your memory), well, I not…

Adjusting to DST

Daylight Savings Time……something we look forward to as a sign of Spring and longer days! But, boy, that “Spring Ahead” thing makes for a rough few nights of sleep while getting used to it! Case in point – last night – let’s just say,…

McDonald’s vs. Burger King

McDonald’s versus Burger King……it is the age old question! Add in a ton of other fast food burger joints and you have quite a dilemma when it comes to choosing something quick to eat! But, I don’t want to complicate this post with the…

The British Are Coming…..

What is it about the British? We declared our independence from them many, many years ago and, yet, we still find a fascination with them. The Royals. The Aristocrats. The titles and classes. The accents. The traditions. They capture our imaginations and our attention….

Time for a Brain Dump!

It has been a while since I just rambled on about a variety of topics that are totally unrelated, except that they are all stuck in my head together. So, yes, it is time to spill my guts, purge my thoughts, make room for…

Spring Fever

I definitely have Spring Fever!  It is an illness I get about this time every year.  It isn’t necessarily tied to the calendar, but sort of is.  Mostly, it is tied to the point in time when the weather starts to break after the…

Weekend Words

What a great weekend this was……perfect weather (until it got a little cooler today, but still nice), and lots of thoughts clanging around in my brain!  So, it is time for  a brain dump and to just ramble on about the things I did…

Smile – it inceases your face value!

My last post was about the joy that a good cry brings.  Now, I think I’ll give smiling some equal time.  And, yes, the title is a quote from Steel Magnolias – Truvie, played by Dolly Parton, said it in the movie that always brings a…

Saturday Morning in Sanford

I had the best Saturday morning in Sanford today!  The weather couldn’t be more perfect – hot, but not too hot (but, just wait until the afternoon, I’m sure), with a nice breeze and a gorgeous bright blue sky!  I had stuff on my…

Are you kidding me????

I’ve been away for the past week – I went on a cruise with my Mom!  YAY!  But that isn’t the topic of this post – nope, the juicy cruise details will come after I get some much-needed sleep and get settled in –…
