On the off chance you forgot about my epic meltdown, here is the link to the post where I PLEADED for them to continue.  Please Don’t Go

For 6 years I chose to Immerse my whole being into the Crawley’s and their loyal servants each and every Sunday night.  Continue reading

From Contender to Champion

Theodore Roosevelt once said, “If you could kick the person in the pants responsible for most of your trouble, you wouldn’t sit for a month.”

Wow, Teddy, thank you so much for calling me out.

If there is one thing I am absolutly AWESOME at, it is finding an excuse for things that happen to me.  Seriously, it is NEVER my fault.  I mean, look at this innocent face….. Continue reading

I Am, I Am, I Am

I am a big fan of fruit.  There is just something enticingly yummy about a big apple, grapefruit, or orange. However, there is nothing worse then anticipating a big Juicy bite, to only find a hollow, dry, and un-tasty mess.

The fact that I am a big ole nerd has never been a hidden fact. I love to watch PBS, listen to NPR, and yes, I absolutely ADORE reading the classics. Perhaps I am what is classified as an old soul. Continue reading

Adulting: It is Overrated

Can I get an Amen?

There are days I sit at my desk and I think to myself, “I wish I still had my Barbies to play with.” Playing with Barbie and all those friends was WAY more exciting than my life.

I mean Barbie gets up every morning with perfect body, perfect hair, and a flawless wardrobe. She gets into her spiffy little Barbie sports car….and she is off to some exotic job in the world of fashion or finance. Continue reading

Tomorrow Is Always Fresh

Weak. Weary. Beaten. Worn. Done.

Those are the words that could adequately describe my body and spirit at the end of each day here lately.

Life consumes me and gets me so bogged down. I find myself worrying over the smallest of details and wasting precious time and energy trying to figure things out.

It is exhausting. Continue reading
