Courier Appreciation Means A Lot

I’m really not so good at thanking those people who are “in my life” making a big impact but who aren’t really “in my life”. No kidding, those FedEx, UPS, USPS, and Amazon drivers bless my soul in more ways than they realize! I should know their names better than I do. I should thankContinue reading “Courier Appreciation Means A Lot”

Stupid Stuff I Do

I’m a real piece of work sometimes… I log into Zoom calls and can’t get in, then wonder what’s wrong. The meeting is tomorrow. I make a point to buy heavy cream for my coffee at the grocery store, because I’m out at work and can’t enjoy my coffee without it. Then I leave itContinue reading “Stupid Stuff I Do”

Like Pouring Gas On Anxiety

Anxiety is a bitch. If you’ve experienced it, you know it can be triggered by something big…or insignificant…or come on without warning and for no reason.

AWOL…but with permission.

I’ve been AWOL. I never thought I would go without posting a TILT, but it’s been over a week without one. I was pretty committed and swore I’d never do it. But I had permission…from myself. I think sometimes life surrounds us with a hundred little stacks and piles. Stacks and stacks of responsibilities. PilesContinue reading “AWOL…but with permission.”

Things I Learned Today / Sunday, August 15, 2021

Things I learned today… I started to crochet a blanket last night, and I had forgotten how much I loved it. While I was yarning over and hooking and turning, I realized that a crocheted blanket is one continuous string of yarn that is continuously looped and pulled to make stitch after stitch. The stitchesContinue reading “Things I Learned Today / Sunday, August 15, 2021”

Y’all, I have had to unlearn some things. I picked all this up along the way as the gospel, the truth, the way it is, what’s right. I thought it was, and if I had not been open to new concepts or applied my own critical thinking, I would still believe these “truths”. Here goes…Continue reading “10 Things To Unlearn Now”

She’s hot. Don’t be ridiculous, and tell her.

Ok, so this might sting. I only apologize in advance just a little, because I don’t really want to hurt anybody’s feelings, but it needs to be said.

Don’t be ridiculous, and tell her.”
