Shut Up, I’m Busy

For once I don't care that I'm behind in a challenge that I so wanted to accomplish. There are more important things in life than getting a blog post up sometimes. I had this grandiose idea of what I was going to get done the last couple of days. I brought my notebook and I was going to organize … [Read more...]

Easter Traditions

We are not a religious household. You won't find an Psalms quoted on this day. In fact I don't really know what a Psalm is.  Feel free to explain it. All holidays around here are about time with family. Being a firefighter family that holiday could be on a different day, but the plan is to get … [Read more...]

Bring on Spring Break

It feels wrong that it's spring break but the kid won't be doing any traveling. However, I will be gone the entire week lol I'll run around and enjoy spring break for him while he does some rehab for his hamstring and gets back in shape for track. I took the week off from fitness class and I … [Read more...]

Awesome Val, Day 3

I told you a few days ago that I had joined a challenge to be more awesome. It started on April 1st but you can still join. Make it quick because she's closing it down in the next day or so I believe. I've been working on being more positive. Not mushy, drive you crazy positive, but focusing on … [Read more...]

Tackling That Cluttered Closet

Closets are a blessing and a curse. They are a convenient hiding place for any number of messes when unexpected company shows up. Toss stuff in and shut the door. Out of sight, out of mind. Then the dreaded day comes when opening the closet door results in several purses, pillows or articles of … [Read more...]

Blogging Challenge

I know you are craving new content from me ;) I started to list the reasons why I've been so sporadic in this last year. But listing it all bored me so I deleted it. I know my … [Read more...]

Being Awesome

It's not hard to be awesome. However, it can be pretty difficult to acknowledge just how much awesome you are rocking. I've joined the "What Would Awesome You Do?" challenge for April. A business acquaintance thought up the idea and it's going to be a lot of fun. It starts April 1st but those of … [Read more...]

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...]
