Do Unto Others

Remember everyday to treat others how you want to be treated.  Criticism hurts and these are emotional scars that never go away.  Treat your loved ones as if each day is your last with them.   Have a happy and uncritical day!      

Therapy for a Tired Soul

Blah!   That’s how I’ve been feeling.  Tired, frustrated, irritable and unmotivated!  Is it the weather, certainly the lack of sunshine and cold doesn’t help.  Or maybe my job, my boss is certainly a pain in the a**.  Or the commute, an hour each way and the fact that I have to get up at 5:30 in…

A Day Late, but Still Thankful

Baked myself silly today.  Two pumpkin, one sweet potato, blueberry, cherry and a full pan of pecan pie.  People, bring your appetites! I like celebrating Thanksgiving a day later.  It gives me an opportunity to get ready and not on a night after work.  My house will be full, our bellies will be full and…

A Year and a Lifetime of Learning Later

Thanksgiving eve, a wonderful to time to review my choices and my life changes in the last year since I have posted. Many things have changed. I have gotten jobs, I’ve left jobs, I’ve been happy, I’ve been depressed, but mostly I have lived and learned. The last year included an awful job, which I…

There is always something to be grateful for…

The more time I spend acknowledging the things I have in my life that are blessings, the less importance the negative ones have in my mind.  Leave no room in your heart for “poor me’s” by filling it up with the positives you already have in your life.  My list always include: I woke up…

Looking Up

Things appear to be picking up in the job market. I have had three interviews in the past two weeks and another on Friday. Hopefully all this activity will finally result in a job. Interviews and applications today are much more difficult than in the past.  This cartoon totally demonstrates what it is like.  🙂

Beautiful Day!

Challenging my thoughts

I have been off my path of writing and eating healthy and generally taking care of myself. It is a familiar road to me, I give myself up so easily. But this morning I heard something that resonated with me. “At some point you have to accept who you are” Panache Desai Finally the core…

Losing – Hair and Weight

Pam in her beautiful baldness and in her new wig. Today I took photos of my sister after she shaved her head. Her hair was falling out so quickly that it was easier to take it off herself rather than watching it go strand by strand. She was glowing and looks beautiful. She is stronger…

For Pam

My sister started losing her hair yesterday from the chemo for her breast cancer. We have spent almost the entire last month together, dr appointments, chemo and staying with her to cook for her and make sure she was doing okay. I have returned to my house since last Friday and I miss her. Yesterday…

Reminder from My Daughter

Having a not so great day and got on Facebook.  Becky posted this song today and it reminded me where to keep my focus.  Thanks Beck, I love you.  Love your Momma

Family, Jobs and Dogs

I started last week by traveling to Kentucky for my interview. It went well, they have three other candidates they are interviewing. Wait and see, I am not in control. My sister, mother and aunt all traveled to Florida at the end of the week. I am their “Driving Miss Daisy” chauffeur to the condo…
