A wonderful reader suggested that I make my Trapped Souls post into a series once I remembered what the hell I wanted to write about. Well, I still don't remember exactly what prompted me to save the title but when I saved 'Never a Purpose or Reason' I knew I needed to do at least…Read more Trapped Souls – Pt. 2 Never a Purpose or Reason
I've always struggled with how to use social media. On the one hand, I want to share things that happen to me, my photos, and things I find funny, interesting, or important but on the other I don't want to waste my time. Perhaps I'm alone here but I believe that most people don't really…Read more How Do You Use Social Media?
Sometimes I get a saying or word stuck in my head. Most of the time its a line from a song but sometimes it comes from my childhood. Perhaps you remember, 'no pain, no gain'. I was an '80s baby so I always equate it with Jane Fonda and exercise which means I hate the…Read more There is No Progress Without Pain
Sheeva It's been about 6 months since we had to say goodbye to our baby cat, Misty. Granted she was 18 years old but she was still a baby to us. R.J. and I decided we would wait to get another cat until we found our next house because we have two cranky, older dogs…Read more What Did We Do?!
I did something a couple of weeks ago that I promised myself I wouldn't do. I started a second crochet project before I finished the one I was working on. This was a rule I put into place after it took me 10 years to finish an afghan. And, for the most part, it's a…Read more Stitch by Stitch – Pt. 13
Sometimes I get ideas for a post and I save a title but forget to add a note about the context. Then, when I go to actually write the post, I have no idea what I wanted to write. Perhaps some of you bloggers can relate... Anyway, it happened again. All I wrote was 'Trapped…Read more Trapped Souls
I want to start this post by fully admitting that I am not a scientist. I'm not sure if I'm even smart enough to be a scientist. I know for sure I don't have the patience to be one. I think it's nuts that things I was told as a kid are no longer true…Read more We Don’t Know What We Don’t Know
Phew, what a week! I had a checkup with my doctor and a visit from a family member. It made me realize how uneventful my life has become. And how grateful I am that it has become that way. Of course, it got the gears working and now I am trying my best not to…Read more Trigger Days
I went to my local public library the other day for the first time in over a year. It was a bit weird because I almost forgot it was there and going to the library was something R.J. and I used to do at least 2 or 3 times a week. Then there was a…Read more Don’t Forget the Public Library!
I'm on my second week of eating meals from Freshly. If you're not familiar with them it's a fairly new company that ships single-serving, prepared meals. They are refrigerated instead of frozen and there's no cooking involved. You just reheat it in the microwave, put it on a plate, and eat it. What's nice about…Read more Are We Living in an Age of Convenience?
