Five Minute Friday – Race…

Race… The person who crosses the finish line first isn’t always the person who wins the race. Sometimes there are other goals or rules that the runner doesn’t know, sometimes, you have to go around the track a second time. Ultimately, you have to know what game you’re playing to win! I thought about this...

Feeling Welcome

I don’t feel welcome. I don’t feel welcome a lot of places. I feel like I push myself into situations where people have to accept me, at least in a limited way. It probably stems from not feeling welcome at home. After my mother got remarried, my stepfather was a joy until he had his...

10 Day Challenge: Four Books

This is the hardest one for me… I used to read a LOT. Now, I can’t push myself to finish one book. But, here we go…  Four. Outliers I’ve literally been reading this book for about two months. It’s not that long or hard of a read and is quite interesting. I need to sit...

10 Day You Challenge: Six Places

Today is all about places that I want to go. This is actually harder than I thought. I figured, I could pick some vacation places, and that’d be it. Choosing six places to go can be more than just the superficial. Enjoy! Six. Anchorage, AL I’m not sure why, I just always wanted to see...

10 Day Challenge: Seven Wants

As I cruise the internet through other blogs, I’m finding some open ended questions. I realize that I don’t really share a lot about myself on this blog, although I’d like to, so I’ll be doing more question and responses on here. I’m coming in a bit in the middle of this challenge, and maybe...

Fill in the ____ Friday

Over this Labor Day weekend, I will be working on my website and getting in a date night with hubby. With the political debates going on right now, my thoughts are that I wish that we could get a real political candidate that spends more time telling us what he’s going to do right than what...
