So why are you so lucky to get another blog posting from me after oh so long?  It’s hot as hell in Denver and I wanted an excuse to seek air conditioning and so I thought – Eureka!  I could go to the air-conditioned Panera down the street and get some writing done while stealing … Continue reading A Wild Ride of Randomness: It’s Hot in Denver, Goals Check-in, and a Purse Review

The Weekend Wrap Up

So, just under the wire but here is my third post of the week, just as promised.  And to end the week, a weekend wrap up.   Friday, after TWO months of fighting working with Firestone, they decided it was not normal that my front driver’s side tire kept losing 10 lbs. of air about … Continue reading The Weekend Wrap Up

Being a Domestic Dud – Part One: Cleaning Failures

Life Goals of a Failing Blogger

Last week when I was posting every day on my blog my better half said: “you better pace yourself.”  I politely nodded and thought “what does he know I have lots of ideas and tons of time, I’ll be able to keep this pace forever!”  That was the day before I went back to work … Continue reading Life Goals of a Failing Blogger

Vacation…All I Ever Wanted

A Prisoner in My Own Home aka Snakes in the Mother F*!#ing Yard

I used to love my backyard.  It was my oasis, my getaway.  After a long day of work, I would love to hang out in the backyard with my better half and the pups.  Grilling and eating dinner on the patio, setting up the pool to cool off with the pups on a hot summer … Continue reading A Prisoner in My Own Home aka Snakes in the Mother F*!#ing Yard

Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire

In my last blog post (remember the one WEEKS ago when I said I would write more), I wrote “if you have time to complain about being too busy, you obviously have some free time.”  Apparently writing this simple little sentence made someone, somewhere, very angry and they decided to put me in my place.  … Continue reading Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire

My Year of Yes

This past summer I have been making a concerted effort to try new things and stop saying no to things that take me out of my comfort zone.  Overall, I feel like I have been pretty successful.  The start of my new philosophy started by backpacking through Peru (my second time backpacking in my entire … Continue reading My Year of Yes
