NaBloPoMo Day 4: What's Wrong With People?

I'm irked. Here's the story. There's a locally owned shop in the mall where I live. This shop features and supports local artists and sells their handmade items. Being an artist and someone who values local businesses, I want to love this shop but I have a big issue with it. ...more

{Date 27} The New New York Guy

Business calls my sister and I to NYC on the last weekend of my challenge. I’m hesitant to take this show on the road because, for as much time as I’ve spent there, I have never really tested the dating pool in NYC. “What do you have to lose?” she asks, “Four days and four dates to be exact,” I answer. “So you don’t think you could find a single date in the entire NYC area?” She asks smart-assedly.

Why I Don't Have a Bucket List

This is my birthday week. On Saturday I will be 34 years young or old depending on if you’re a glass have full/empty type of person. I’ve done some things in my life that I’m quit proud of but I still have a lot of things I’d love to do. I make lists all of the time of things I want to do.

I know they’re a big deal for a lot of people but what happens when you’re done with that list?...more

Assessing the Mess

Time escalates at an alarming rate as I pass through life.  I am already planning on responding to Nablopomo comments and such during lunch tomorrow so I can have the evening to clean the house before I have laser eye surgery on Tuesday.I don't know how I used to do the 8-5, raise a kid, help the hubby at his work, take care of the house, be a girl scout leader and remember to buy milk.  Oh that is right, I had a breakdown, duh.    Seriously, how did I once juggle everything?...more

I Knew You Were Trouble

From my blog Take It EasyDo you ever find yourself idly passing time on the interweb by flicking from site to site finding things to read? I often do, usually among the news sites, many of which have a 'funnies' section which is usually good for some entertainment. One of my favourite sites is the BBC, which is very comprehensive. Yesterday, I found this little gem on there:...more
