A Disturbance in the Force…

The past two months have been hell at work, I would argue some of the worst months in my whole career. The hours have been crazy long, the people have been horrible, being bothered on my days off, having my days split because no staff, working 8 days straight takes a toll on a person. … Continue reading

Not, Going to Miss My Shot!

I first want to apologize to Lin-Manuel Miranda for using that line (I love Hamilton!) Anyways, Tuesday night it happened I received my first COVID vaccine on Tuesday. I received the Pzifer shot. How you ask? I am obese. As hard as I have been busting my ass, working out, I gained 8 pounds making … Continue reading

What a year…

This time last year, I had my dream job and was gearing up for the biggest party of the year in Savannah, St. Patrick’s Day. Today one year ago exactly, the wheels fell off and everything was canceled. This day last year, everything was canceled, we all were in shock and the mood was grim. … Continue reading

Cats! (Not the Musical)

Cats! (Not the Musical)

Our neighborhood has a cat problem, a bad feral cat problem for the past year. My neighbor feeds the feral cats, there are about 12 that hang out or live there. I believe three are pregnant now. A couple of years ago when it got bad, we were able to convince them to let us … Continue reading

Another Exercise Post

WARNING: If you don’t want to hear me complain about exercise (and work) just skip this post. Now that my disclaimer is out of the way, Dear God, I hate exercising but I like to eat (and eat crap) so I need to do it. The catalyst for me was reading more about Parkinson’s Disease … Continue reading

I Finally Did It…

I bought an iPad, I have been talking about it for years and I couldn’t do it. The cost was really the main reason, I just couldn’t stomach it. With virtual learning, the kids are always on the computer, meaning I can’t do anything on Photoshop. I couldn’t take the photos I have and transfer … Continue reading

Do You Give Blood?

I think I have mentioned on more than one occasion I am a blood donor, I am also a bone marrow donor and am on the registry. I have been giving blood on and off since I was 16 years old. I had a few stints where for health reasons I was unable to donate. … Continue reading

A Long Way to Go…

I have been exercising 5 days a week since December. I have always stated how much I hate exercising, this time is no different. This time is different, my body is starting to crave exercising. I actually did an hour long Jillian Michaels (No More Trouble Zones) workout, it was hard, really hard, but I … Continue reading

Back to My Roots…

I have never shared this story because my Grandma Helen swore me to secrecy. My granny (which is what we called her) passed last year, so I think I am in the clear now of granny’s wrath (I will let you know if she haunts me). My granny bought my booze when I was in … Continue reading

Go Big or Go Home…

Go Big or Go Home…

I remember many, many years ago an artist telling me I painted too big and no one would want a huge painting in their house. At the time I painted 18×20 and larger. I was crushed because I respected this artist and really wanted to be like this artist. This artist never painted anything bigger … Continue reading
