As I begin to jot this down, I am practically in tears. Today has been one of those days. Perhaps you can relate. I had grand plans. I had my alarm set to have plenty of time to accomplish all that I needed and not be rushed or stressed. And yet…. here I am running … More Pull Over!!!
Today is Jorjia’s 4th anniversary for her sobriety. It’s kind of like it is her re-birthday. Her new life of sobriety started 4 years ago today. ￼ I remember celebrating the daily, weekly and monthly victories; as she began this walk. 100 days which then led into 6 months, and finally that 1st year clean … More Happy 4th Re-Birthday!
Jorjia and I knew that beginning a blog would take a lot of work, but we also knew that there would be many great things about starting it. ⁃ One of the benefits of doing this blog as a mother daughter team is that neither of us would be doing it alone. ⁃ Another was … More We Dropped The Ball
I’ve always enjoyed driving. Sometimes I’ve favored some of my vehicles more than others. Actually I have even liked the same vehicle less or more depending upon the day and the current issue. I’ve really never got attached to a car. I hear about people that do and honestly I’ve sort of rolled my eyes … More Can’t Escape Love

I can remember playing dolls with my friends and telling them what their dolls needed to say to mine. We would play house and I would explain to them what they needed to … More Delegation vs. Bossiness
Have you ever been talking with someone, sharing something with them, and when you asked them a question, their answer seemed way off? Or maybe they were quick to say, could you repeat the question? I am not sure that I heard that right. Or perhaps they were honest and said, I’m sorry, I wasn’t … More Deeply Distracted
Today I feel like I am in the rapids in a boat. I am holding the paddle but I’m just bouncing and slamming against the rocks as I race down the river towards the unseen; not scared just anxious. I am wondering what is around the bend? Have you ever felt that way? Like your … More Turbulent
“No, absolutely not! Don’t even think about it. I will not let you do that.” 30 years of marriage and this is not a conversation that I expected. My first reaction was to pop open my mouth and tell him exactly what I thought about being told what I would and would not be ‘allowed’ … More No, absolutely not! Don’t even think about it. I will not let you do that.”
Did you know that you can restart your day whenever you want to? Sunday, I had to restart my day two times before 9 o’clock in the morning! That doesn’t happen very often, but it got me thinking – I wonder how many people go through their life without even knowing that it is an … More Hit The Reset Button!
