It strikes me odd how I can talk about doing something with little fear, yet when this certain something approaches, I react as if I never expected to be faced with the faintest bit of pause towards its happening. Then I find myself in a bit of a predicament. All the blissful ignorance of my … More Flying Solo
I realize my blogging the past few weeks has been spotty, at best. In fact, this is my first post this month. Yikes. I wish I could give a solid reason why, but ultimately it’s a matter of searching. Searching for what I want to devote the majority of my time and energy to and … More World Down Syndrome Day, 2018
Today I’m going to share with you the most annoying, then uplifting, then confusing conversation of last week. While waiting for the doctor at my six-month allergist check-up, the nurse came in to do the preliminary screening. She started asking all the questions which frustrate me. Not only do the answers never change, more often … More Hiding in the Mid 20’s
As a thank you for my planning our family cruise, my family bought me the Boos Block table I had my eye on since I took that King Arthur class last May. They’re the best.* *I mean my family, but the table is the best, too! I tend to keep new things boxed up for … More My Boos Block
If ever there were a holiday I defined as over commercialized, it would be Valentine’s Day. Men are forced into overspending for roses and chocolates. Restaurant reservations must be made weeks in advance. Attempts are made at the perfect words to say I Love You in overpriced Hallmark cards.

Naturally, I’m stretched across worlds of several different kinds of books all at once. However, I do stick to one rule: one fiction book at a time. 1. Reaper Man by Terry Pratchett My brother gave me two of Pratchett’s books for my birthday this year. I’ve heard so much about his writing legacy, I … More What I’m Currently Reading
I’ve been a dog owner for a hot minute, but I am quickly learning dog products I like and don’t like. For example, I do not like pig ears. At least, not for my dog. Instead of chewing on them, he attempts to inhale them which then leads to some snorting and gagging and touch … More Dog Products I Love So Far…
Today’s Four for Friday is brought to you by three things I love: shoes, the Bible, and coffee.* *Not necessarily in that order. 1. Shoes I’ve become obsessed with this classic shoe style which has recently gained a modern twist. I did a little research on this slip-on shoe and found that in the 16th-19th … More Four for Friday!
