Giving up the fight

This morning I am pissed.  I know it's Christmas Eve and I should be full of the Christmas spirit.  I should be making merry, eating Christmas cookies, frolicking while listening to joyous Christmas songs, and everything should be covered in gift bags and festive wrapping paper.  But today I just can't. Yesterday I put up … Continue reading Giving up the fight

And one shall glue them together

We are inching ever closer to Christmas.  I think we can officially say we are mere hours away from the big day.  Merry is being made.  Friends and family are feeling festive.  Ugly sweaters are being worn.  Gifts are being exchanged.  Delicious seasonal goodies are being indulged upon.  And everything is twinkling with colorful lights. … Continue reading And one shall glue them together

When you just smile

I realized something recently. I don't struggle with writers block. Don't worry. I'm not saying that I am one of those amazing writers that always has something to write about. That's a big fat nope! As a matter of fact, it seems that lately I have been silent more than I've been writing. With that … Continue reading When you just smile

Always searching for Orion

I was driving to work tonight and looked a bit like a drunk driver.  The sky was wonderfully clear and dark which made the stars quite visible.  I looked at the sky on the driver's side of my car and lo-and-behold, Orion was following me to work.  Orion is my favorite constellation.  Not because he's … Continue reading Always searching for Orion

When journaling won’t cut it

So, I went out and bought a new notebook today. Now allow me to say that, by buying a new notebook, I am truly defining the insanity that is my life. Here is why. Whenever I get "down in the dumps," I go out and buy a new notebook. My thought is that I'll get … Continue reading When journaling won’t cut it

“I am looking for a dare to be great situation.”

Exhausting!  That is the only way to describe this week.  Thank God it's done.  This weekend is going to be a giant ctrl-alt-delete, and next week it'll start all over. I interviewed this week for a job that I really wanted.  I thought it went well, but I found out the next day that I … Continue reading “I am looking for a dare to be great situation.”


I have a set of scripture-prayer cards.  I received them as a gift this past Mother's Day, but have not given them much of a look.  If you've read my last couple of posts then you know that I am struggling a bit with who am I and what I am supposed to be doing. … Continue reading Baggage

No good. Worthless. Won’t amount to anything.

I've been going to several job interviews over the last month.  I've interviewed for positions at a florist, day care center, behavioral therapy clinic, newspaper, and much more.  I have interviewed from one end of town to the other, and sometimes even into the next town.  I'm not used to doing job interviews, having only … Continue reading No good. Worthless. Won’t amount to anything.
