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

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

Hindsight is 20/20

Hindsight is 20/20

I saw this Tweet this weekend shortly after the passing of RBG and was gobbedsmacked – OMG YES! (I do have a fun project to share at the end.) Of course I was shocked and saddened by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, I personally equated it to losing a third grandma this year. … Continue reading

What Day Is It?

I can honestly say, I have no idea. I have reached the point in this social isolation that I have no idea what day it is, when the last time I wore pants or jeans was, or when I last wore makeup (the last one I know March 20th). I find going to the mail … 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. This job literally almost killed me, I suffered heat stroke on 4th of July, I left work … Continue reading

I am finished!

It has been a long two years, lack of sleep, lots of reading, lots and lots of writing and I am happy to report only two breakdowns, (one revolved around accounting and the other was Human Biology) and I am a college graduate.  I graduated with High Honors (Summa Cum Laude) and was invited to … Continue reading

Going Home…

The last time I stepped foot in the state of Michigan was 2012, it was summer time and I was here with my husband and kids.  This visit has been far different I flew to Escanaba by myself, in the middle of winter for my grandmother’s birthday.  I am older and one may even argue … Continue reading

2016 – How Did That Happen?

In 10 weeks I will be officially finished with my Business Degree, I am in shock and very, very excited.  I managed to hold a 3.97 GPA while working full-time.  I am so excited to be almost finished – March 16, 2016 cannot come soon enough! I officially started learning Spanish, a slow process, however … Continue reading

Day 2 – oh boy…

I have completed day 2, I also realized I don’t eat enough.  I did some research and I think I figured out how to eat more.  I have found lots of resources to help me on Pintrest so I think it might actually work.  I am cheap and really don’t want to pay for anything … Continue reading
