Is Tomorrow Really October 1?

Where has September gone? Just yesterday I was sitting out on the deck drinking a glass of wine while the kids played in the back yard. Actually that isn’t true. Yesterday it rained all day.  I drank a glass of wine while I watched the Bears/ Vikings game with Chris. I am a Packer fan so I don’t even know who won that game.  September flew by.  The years seem to go by faster and faster as I get older.  Sometimes I wish I could reverse time and be ten…

Why do Bad Things Happen to Good People?

It has been a while since I have written here.  Sometimes life happens. We get busy with kids, school, summer, vacations, deaths in the family and who knows what else.  My life is crazy and busy.

Now back to the main topic of this post. Why…

Yes it is and I have been suffering from high levels of this six letter word. It seems like it just will not go away.

Selfie – #WordlessWednesday with #linky on a Tuesday

Little Bear and I recently took a selfie. This was our last lunch date before he started full time Kindergarten. I recently started a new part time job. I work 3 days a week as a merchandiser. The work is easy and stress free, plus I am guaranteed a paycheck. If I don’t sell an ad in my magazine, then I won’t get a paycheck. My family needs a regular income from me so I jumped at the opportunity. Visit these great blogs for more Wordless Wednesdays.      …
