Saying Goodbye

Saturday night, I received a text from a friend and former co-worker. The text was simple, “Mary died Wednesday.” I knew he was too broken up to type much more. We worked together for almost 8 years, I spent 40 plus hours a week for 8 years that is a long time. Mary was the … Continue reading

A Time For Change

Several years ago I found myself in a job I hated and absolutely miserable. I cried everyday on my drive home from work, I was actually contemplating serious surgery so I wouldn’t have to work in that environment.

One Step Closer

Several years ago we had a water/mold incident in our living room. It ended up with us ripping up the whole living room carpet, treating and replacing the floor. At the time money was extremely tight but we needed a functioning living room. I decided to do a paper bag floor. Fast forward to today … Continue reading

When Anxiety Happens

I have never really talked about my anxiety, it has always been a taboo topic. No one wants to be friends with someone who has depression or anxiety issues, you just don’t speak of it or you joke about it – it was how I was raised, everyone knew but no one spoke of it. … Continue reading

Hurricane Matthew (Go Away!)

I have lived in Savannah for 18 plus years we have had some scares (2004) and only one evacuation before today that was Floyd in 1999.  I did evacuate for Floyd in 1999 it was an adventure to say the least.  I was 2,000 miles from home since I lived on my own and not … Continue reading
