More and More

I spoke yesterday about preparing for hurricanes.  As I age, I have noticed that there is more and more that I must prepare for and take specific steps to either complete or anticipate. I am learning to take things a bit slower.  While my usual speed is at warp, I am slowing down to mere breakneck.  I have learned to pack things in smaller containers, and at lighter weights.  There are a million little things I am learning to make adjustments for as I age. Preparing for aging is not giving up....more


I live on the Gulf Coast.  The home in which I now live is only two blocks off the beach.  With that circumstance, I realized I need to prepare a hurricane kit. Using some of the Amazon gift cards I earned last month (see Moneymaker tab above on the blog), I ordered two hurricane lamps.  When I receive the rest of my gift cards, a large cooler will be on its way! Luckily, I had earned the extra money to buy those items.  My budget surely doesn't allow that kind of expenditure!...more

The 14th

As our great nation prepares to celebrate Independence Day, and with the events of the past few weeks, I find it an appropriate time to remind my dear readers of the 14th Amendment and the protections of rights offered therein....more

The Racial Divide

A few days ago on Facebook, a friend re-posted an article calling white Americans "White Terrorists."  We have been friends for over a decade, and while I understand and appreciate her anger, that post actually shocked me. While my friend did not write the post, she made those words her own when she re-posted and shared on her personal wall.  Do I think she personally thinks I am a terrorist?  No....more

Since the Supreme Court ruling, I have seen multiple posts using Christianity as justification for spewing hate and bigotry....more

Anyone who knows me is aware that I lean towards the liberal side.  However, I do stand firm in my belief that the flag currently under attack should not be banned.  Why?   ...more

Love Lives Here

This was my personal Facebook post on Saturday morning.  It is an opinion I believe is worth repeating here on my blog....more

Organized Chaos

I know today is Thursday, but I am going to describe a typical Sunday.  It is a day replete with organized chaos. My son and I both work 40 plus hours a week.  In addition, he is attending an online class with the famous Stan Lee.  I have my moneymakers I do in addition to my day job.  That leaves weekends as our time for chores. Saturday is my main day for chores.  Laundry is done for me on Saturday, and my son takes over the machines on Sunday....more


Last week, I had described staying busy with one project after another.  I seem to have made an error and my son was kind enough to point it out to me. I had said that when I gave up an activity, I seemed to use that extra time to fit in another project.  My son told me that he appreciated how honest I was in that post about staying busy.  He did correct me, however, on one point. It seems that when I give up or finish a particular activity, I don't fill that time with another project....more


I am a self-avowed cop show addict.  If a television show has even the slightest hint of mystery and mayhem...I'm there.  Have you even noticed just how many are televised right now???...more
