It was the last day of school. She saw him at the lockers as she was getting all of her books. She saw him smile at her and he started to approach her. She averted her gaze and focused on getting all of her stuff. “Hey,” he said. “Hey,” she said without looking at him. “Let’s go home together,” he said. “S-sure,” she stuttered. “Good. I’ll wait for you outside,” he said and then he walked away. She stared at him as he walked. She wondered why he suddenly asked her to go with…

My mother told me once that a cousin of mine told her she was obsessed with the fear of death that she would spend hours worrying about how she, her husband, or her children could die. I thought, what a terrible thing to have to live with and it just broke my heart. Personally, I don’t think about when/if/…

Ever go to drive somewhere and it takes you twice as long because of construction? Ever do tons of exercise and get on the scale 2 weeks later to find the numbers haven’t budged? Ever go to your doctor for a routine wax cleanout and leave with a surgery date in hand?…

Adult Slumber Parties–learning to adult

Hey everyone!  In the spirit of trying to get my mind off of unpleasant things going on in my life right now, I felt the need to look for something fun and distracting to follow.  I found the perfect blog post that shows EXACTLY what I need in my life.  Thank you to learningtoadult for the fun post!

Adventurous Goal Setting — loveatthespeedoflife

Hello my friends!  If you read my recent post then you know that I am struggling with keeping myself on task with personal writing.

And now for something completely different…. I work just outside of a major metropolitan area.  But, like most cities, we’re fairly compartmentalized – once you get outside of the beltway, you’re in the wilderness fairly quickly.  We’re only about 10 miles from a large city, but very quickly, the 4-lane highway dissolves into a two-lane road, and you’re driving past fields and farms in short order.   When we have visitors coming out to the facility, part of my directions include “drive past the chicken farm and over the train tracks, then turn…

Mini Musings–Sharing is Caring

Greetings and Salutations to all of my blogging friends! I just wanted to give you a head’s up that I am going to start sharing some of my favorite blogs from my online friends.  It is something that has needed to happen for a long time, but I was fairly reluctant because I was too busy being over-protective of my own blog.  I had a vision of what I wanted to do and sharing wasn’t part of the equation. Cut to now and that fact that I have had this blog for almost eight months and I finally realized that I have been…
