Saying Goodbye

So far, 2016 has been nothing but loss for me.  On January 29, my grandfather passed away at the age of 96.  He lived an incredible and very healthy life.  The downfall to being so healthy was that the dying process was quite lengthy for him.  When he finally passed, there was a definite sense of relief for the entire family.  From fighting in WWII to taking over a company […]

First Anniversary

This morning it dawned on me… one year ago today my divorce was finalized.  So, I’ve officially been legally single for an entire year. In that time, I’ve traded my car (co-owned with my ex-husband) for my truck, I bought a motorcycle (getting myself back on two-wheels again), and most recently, I purchased a dirt bike.  I’ve also faced my greatest demon, made a new group of friends, let go […]

Too Little Too Late?

So far, I’ve written 5 blog posts this year.  That’s as many as I’ve written total in recent years.  Maybe I’m finally coming back around.  Though now I’m wondering… is it too little too late??  Have I lost all my readers?  I know I haven’t been present in a very long time… but, I do still peruse your blogs now and then.  I do still follow your life updates.  I […]

And So It Begins…

Girls Getaway Weekend

The travel season is starting… my life is slowly becoming consumed by nothing but work.  It’s like going from 0 to 60 mph in 5 seconds.  There is no adjustment period… it just starts and doesn’t slow down for the next 8 months.  Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE my job!!  But, it’s definitely an extremely high-stress job for 8 months out of the year.  For the last 3 […]

Pit Love

Pit Love

I have two boys… and although they are the 4-legged furry type, they are my boys.  They’re also both ½ Boxer and ½ Pit Bull.  It could even be argued that they both may be full Pit Bull… but, with a breed so often incorrectly identified, I’m happy to call them half & half… and I believe I got the absolute best of both breeds! I’ve had people ask me […]

Friendships

It seems I’m horrible at keeping up with this site, yet I’ve had it for so many years I refuse to let it go.  I guess, if anyone still visits, you’ll just have to deal with my sporadic updates. It’s been a good year… lots of self-discovery, forward movement, etc.  More than anything, it’s been educational.  I have a 9 month old beautiful nephew, little brother to my 5 yr […]

Covering the Spectrum

It appears I will need to change my category “nephew” to “nephews”.  🙂  Sometime in late January 2013, I will become an auntie again to another little bundle of joy!!!  I’m so ecstatic for my sister and praying this pregnancy goes smoothly given that she’s had two miscarriages since December.  So far so good… no major issues, though a few minor ones that should work themselves out. On Labor Day, […]

Must Love Dogs

The older (and much larger) of my two pups managed to tear his ACL (well, it’s the canine equivalent to the ACL).  He had been limping off and on for about a month.  It was initially assumed (without being physically seen by the vet) that it was likely arthritis starting.  He’s 7 years old and 90 lbs, so it certainly seemed logical.  After it seemed as though it was progressively […]
