Go long or go home…

I read this recently on runnersworld.com I’m sure it’s not something that the guy who said it came up with as it seems I’ve heard this particular term before, but it struck me. I did my 100 days. I slothed about for another 30 (or more) days before I decided to try to get serious […]

I really am still alive!

Yep. Bet you thought I forgot to update. I’ll let you believe that rather than the alternative which is really that my life is so boring that at times there simply isn’t anything to blog about. Sad, I know. The truth is, I like it boring. Boring means nothing crappy has happened and that is […]

It’s been a month?!

Wow. I see that it’s been nearly a month since I made a post. I’ve even done things. Like left the house things. And not even left the house to go shopping things. Real things. Vacation things. Arizona, Vegas. Sunshine, slots. Family. I had a great time. I saw a great deal of very strange people […]

Somebody dented my damn car!

with a cart. Naturally. It is my biggest pet peeve and something I complain about the loudest. Why are people so lazy that they can’t walk a few steps to put a cart away. Really. What the hell. So now I get to put my insurance to good use to get it fixed. They caught […]

Spring means Flip Flops and Sandals….Hooray!

I {heart} sandals. Any kind. All styles. Well, maybe not those ones that wrap up your legs, I’m way too conservative old for that. But I do love almost all kinds of sandals. I have something close to 40 pairs. I think. Maybe more. I know that I can’t realistically wear every pair I have since I rarely […]

About that Not Cleaning Thing….and the Difference between Men & Women

I’ve mentioned before that I don’t clean. That’s not entirely true. Only my version of “cleaning” is really what normal people would call straightening or picking up. I’m great at that. Think about it. My self-diagnosed ADD does not permit me to do any one thing for longer than 10 seconds or so. My version […]

The Great Cabinet Cleanout

People spring clean. I do not. People fall clean. I don’t do that either. I try to never clean, I mean really deep clean, maybe once every few years and then, ONLY when it’s so bad that the hints the husband drops can no longer be considered even remotely subtle.  The house can look great, it usually […]

Spring? Gah…we got SNOW

So I believe the husband counted his blades of grass before they were mowed. He happily declared it spring as of March 1st and lookie here. We got 2 inches of snow. That jerk. 3 days ago, I was doing my walks outside without a jacket and contemplating shorts and now I’m not leaving the […]

Hello March, it’s Spring!

Or so says the husband. It’s not really but it kinda feels like it. Not that we had much of a winter. Hardly any snow and temps in December and January that were shorts weather. Seriously. In Illinois. Land of the crappy winters and freezing temps. So I’m totally not complaining. Even though it sounds like […]
