I’m Confused. Was That a Compliment or an Insult?

I stopped for lunch on my way to work today.  The cashier was a young guy and seemed like a fairly friendly sort.  After taking my order, he proceeded to ask me if I had ever watched Scooby Doo as a child.  I hesitated a little, because I wear glasses and have a reddish-brown bob and I had a feeling I knew where this was heading.  (Jinkies…I wasn’t even wearing a turtleneck.)  After a minute–and an odd look that should {Read More}

Is A Spam Comment Better Than No Comment??

I’ve been incredibly busy this week and haven’t been home enough to do much writing.  I have taken the time, most days, to check my blog.  I always love to see if I have any comments, but it seems that I get the same ones repeatedly.  Oddly enough, it’s from a different person every single time!  I used to think that any comment is better than no comment, but I think I’ve changed my mind. I feel like the people who leave {Read More}

This Little Piggy Went To Market…

So I let my blog fall completely by the wayside again.  I’m so bad. I always have an excuse…they just aren’t always good ones!!!  This time, Super Trooper was out of town and I was trying to get ready for my own trip. My bestie took me to Market in Atlanta again.  I really needed some time away and even though it wasn’t the beach, we always have a fun time together. I’m not normally much of a people watcher {Read More}

To Blog Or Not To Blog? Yep, That’s Definitely the Question.

I almost talked myself into giving up my blog last week.  Not because I don’t love it, but because it’s a lot harder than I ever thought it would be.  Blogging is a LOT of work. I had this notion that I could set up a site and just write to my little heart’s content.  I didn’t really understand the concept that I needed to have pictures and search terms and ideas that no one else has in order to {Read More}

Exercise, schmexercise…

That about sums up my feeling about exercise most days. I take that back.  If I had my own swimming pool and it stayed warm around here year-round, I’d stay in the water.  I love to swim.  I love water aerobics.  I love to just be in the water! But I don’t have that luxury and I don’t want to spend the money joining the gym, so I’m doing exercise videos at home.  I have certain videos I really like…those {Read More}

Wishing For a Little Spring…

I’m so over winter.  Bring me some spring.  Or summer. Or fall.  At this point, I don’t even care…just anything but snow and cold! The truth is, I don’t function well in winter.  I never have, but it gets worse as I age.  I never really understood those people who retired and moved to really hot places, but the more my bones ache, the more I understand.  This winter has been particularly harsh for a lot of people, I know. {Read More}

I’m Perfectly Capable of Doubting Myself. I Don’t Need Anyone Else To Help Me.

  During a recent conversation with a friend, I mentioned that I had taken up exercising again.  She immediately said, “It won’t work.”  Then she realized that what she had been thinking had actually come out of her mouth and tried to smooth it over.  I’m used to her opinions, so I just pretended like I didn’t hear it at all and went on with my conversation. The next day, I was doing said exercises (videos—because I can’t afford the {Read More}

No Bread In the Basket: One Family’s Tale of Survival Without Snow Day French Toast

  There are some things that everyone should know about me.  One of those is:  I don’t panic at the thought of being snowed in.  At least, not as long as there is electricity or some sort of heat source.  And running out of food is not usually an option here.  Despite how many times my children utter the words, “we have nothing to eat,” there is always something to eat. However, after the Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year’s holidays, the pickings were {Read More}
