Reverting to my redneck roots
My step DD called tonight, crying. She and her live-in BF are fighting again. This is the second call recently. He is much older and unfortunately, much more immature than she is. Last time, he kept coming up to her while she was on the phone wi... Read more
Whoever says a smile is just a frown turned upside down,
is insane! Do i need to go there again? As my niece would say, "SERIOUSLY?"

Just for this week
I am inspired by Kaseycoff's status this morning: "It's reboot day - brand new month!" I've heard of programs like "31 days to a new you" and "100 days to greatness", etc., but I think I'll just take the week. Just this week for starters. Today... Read more
What a week!
This has been a busy week. I mean, sometimes you turn around and it's Friday and you can only think, "Where did the days go???" Sunday I drove to Ikea with my DS. Three hours up and four hours back due to traffic. I don't even remember Monday a... Read more
