Well, Hello There Darlings


Its been a while. Mostly because I’ve been overhauling the site with a little help from my friend Brandon of BDG WebDesign. It shouldn’t look much different to anyone, but everything behind the scenes is new and improved and it took some time to get it done. Thanks to Brandon for doing the stuff I don’t get and for years of tolerating my questions. OK, he “pets” my hair when I’m really not getting things, so it’s an even deal. I downloaded pictures from my phone to give a sneak peek at what’s been going on since we last chatted…… Continue reading

Winter Running


It’s cold. Sure, not as cold as Alaska when I lived there, but still cold. It snows too. Not always as much as this year and not as much as other places, but we get it. This year quite a bit of it, relatively speaking. Ice. It’s everywhere. I’ve only gone running in temps as low as 13* this year. I’ve also bypassed running when the roads have been excessively crappy which seems like a lot. I used to run no matter what, but then I broke my foot. That taught me to be more of a fair weather runner – or at least less stupid about running. Winter running isn’t just about the clothing you wear – although that makes it manageable – it’s about being safe and following rules differently. Continue reading

That means we aren’t men, probably shouldn’t be treated like them, are unique and how amazing is that? Two: Why don’t we support each other more? We’re all women, we all go through a list of the same issues, we’re all struggling in similar ways. Geez, band together and raise each other up. Continue reading

Someday I Will……


That elusive someday. Always putting off the things we “want” to do for the things we “have” to do. I recently watched the movie Paper Towns with several of the teenagers and it was a great conversation starter. Continue reading

Keep What’s Important


There are things I’ve been lugging around, saving, keeping for a long time. One Rubbermaid bin of items that were sentimental and I knew I would use. This bin could have been tossed at any time in the last ten years, but I couldn’t let it go. It was labeled “Baby Toys” and contained my favorite toys that I got for my kids when they were babies. The oldest toy turns 23 this Christmas and was a gift my now 23 year old daughter “opened” when she was 8 months old. Continue reading
