Taking a Facebook Break

I used to take a break from facebook every January. I would stay off for the entire month. I could only post to my fanpages because that's business related. I started the year with some amazing biz habits this way. In 2013, I created a firewife site and group again. If you've ever had a facebook … [Read more...]

Kindle or Books

I love books but for quite a few years I stopped reading. I just haven't taken the time to relax. I hadn't been to the library in well over 5 years. I hadn't kept up with my favorite book series. I was way behind in the JD Robb in death series. That turned out to be a good thing because when I … [Read more...]

Fifty Shades You Didn’t Read

Oh boy. I'm so close to losing my mind. This is year two I haven't gotten off fb in January like I used to. My patience is gone. There's a big reason why I used to take that month break every year from all that drama. Sanity! Could also be because I haven't been writing. I just made a list of … [Read more...]

2015 is About Action

But it is definitely a time for reflection and seeing new goals for the calendar year ahead. 2014 my word was Laziness. It worked. Last year was more transitioning than I had … [Read more...]

Elf on the Shelf is Like Police State

  It's no secret that I'm not an elf on the shelf fan. So many things I see wrong with it. A professor is now backing me up on one idea. Big brother constantly watching over your every move.  That you should only be acting correctly because you know Elf is watching. UGH, seriously? Go … [Read more...]

Blogging Identity

I've been online since 1999 and had this blog before 2004. I might have hit a decade but I can't be sure of who, what, when because I was an idiot and didn't back up at the beginning. I lost posts. That just makes me mysterious right? I've had issues the last couple of years. Well hell, I've had … [Read more...]

Thanksgiving Stuffing

  Yes, I own and run a foodie site. But I still go elsewhere to get inspiration and new recipes to tweak to my liking. Allrecipes.com has been my go to for many years now. Then I found out they are local to me and I screamed just a little in excitement. I LOVE SUPPORTING LOCAL! … [Read more...]
