  1. Goals and Dreams
    January blipped by before I had a chance to even realize it was a new year. I didn't want February to go by the same way, so I challenged myself to do something that month that would make those twenty-nine days memorable. My challenge was to run five miles. I am hoping to meet that challenge...
  2. Goals and Dreams
    I just blogged about January, and I realized that the whole month went by without me doing any one specific thing that I could look back on with any sense of accomplishment. I don't want February to go by the same way, so I am setting a challenge to myself and to anyone else who wants a...

    trying to make friends! After a really rough weekend I remember why it was that I decided to just be nice and friendly to everyone but to not make FRIENDS with people anymore. I always choose the wrong people to be friends with. You know the ones, they want, want, want from you yet are never...

    that I mentioned posting on. I am SO done with it. I just don't understand why there have to be people who just want to be nasty to others. People who can't just answer a fun question, but instead have to pick the post apart and be nasty. I am so tired of people being nasty to me so I'm...

    DS6 has them. He started getting them yesterday. He's such a trooper! He's rarely complained about itching and always asks me for more calamine lotion when he gets itchy. We gave him an Aveeno oatmeal bath that seems to really help. When I was a kid, I was in absolutely agony. My mom never put...

    Growing up, we always filled the trunk of the car with mason jars filled with water and cut peonies, and took them to the graveyards on Memorial Day. We wandered around finding the graves of relatives and putting flowers on them. It was a way of keeping their memories alive. Usually the VFW...
