    Not So Random Thoughts!

      Excited about the hubster and I taking a road trip soon! The planning/researching has been so exciting to me. Craving a Big-Mac from McDonalds. #dontjudgeme Needing to not stress about the current class that I’m taking. Thankful for seeing another day so I can be thankful for all that I have. Wanting to stop feeling so fatigued. Even with the medication I’m on for my thyroid issue, the fatigue is real. Loving where I’m at with my life at the moment. I am finding a deeper profound for life and happiness. My psychology courses have totally helped me in many ways. Missing my mom every.single.day. Her being gone still hits me like a ton of bricks.…

    I’m Learning….

    I haven’t felt this good about life in a long time but I’m finding myself there! I have so much to (write) blog about. There’s a lot that I will be (writing) blogging about here soon. I think I just needed that “something” to get me back to this point of wanting to write so that I cant get back into blogging. I’m excited!!! Follow and Share:

    2017 into 2018; Goals

    I’ve always been someone that said when I’d do something, I did it. Ya know, the kind of person you could depend on; whether it was doing something for myself or others. Over the years, I’ve sort of lost myself. I’m hoping to find her before the year is out so I can start anew for the new year. Some things I want to get back into doing and some things that need to be done… PRIORITY: Church. I need church. Whether it’s going to a Wednesday service or Sunday service. I’m not an overly religious person but without God as front and center in my life, life for me will…

    Not So Random Thoughts

    Today was a pretty productive day for me. First I deactivated my Facebook account. I then forced myself to get up early so that I could knock out my household chores. I purged items in my closet to give to Goodwill. I organized my file cabinet and just a whole bunch of other stuff I knocked out today that I felt needed to be done. I hate clutter or not being organized. I’ve taken a leave of absence from school; just a week. My thoughts are all over the place at the moment. At times I don’t think it has fully sunk in that my sister has died. She has…

    Apartment Living; Our Home

    I absolutely LOVE apartment living.  We are centrally located to just about everything and the amenities here suit us just well. At this point in time in our lives, and especially in mine,  I have no desire to buy a home or even live in a house. Been there! Done that! Yes, my home is usually uncluttered and clean; unless I’m purging or rearranging.  This is something that I learned from my mother.  Even when my (bonus)children lived with us full time, they had their own space which they had to keep clean or stuff went to the trash. Considering we don’t have as much space now, the kids play in…

    The Happy Movie 

    I’m currently doing a class assignment and came across the movie below (link) while doing some research. I found it on Netflix and just added it to my list. I cant wait to see it as it’s the type of movie that I enjoy watching. Source: yekra – The Happy Movie | The Happy Movie Follow and Share:

    Getting Older

      I’m currently taking a psychology class as part of my overall classes in college. It’s been pretty intense with regard as to how I see myself and life in general. Last week, I had to ask five people questions and one of them was: “What makes you happy?”. I’ve been thinking long and hard about what my answer(s) would be. I also realized that I had to be brutally honest with myself about those answers. This year I will be forty-eight years old; 4-8. Two years shy of fifty (50). Hell I didn’t think I’d make it pass my teens with all that I was going through and yet…

    2017 Goals

    It’s like the saying goes “write it down and then make it happen.” I’m more of a visual person, so I’ll print this out and hang up near my computer and on the fridge which will hopefully keep me on track. My (personal) goals for 2017…. Purchase a second car for the hubster, so that I can use the van. Start a meet-up group. I had quite a few members on my previous group but couldn’t keep it up due to our car situation. Apply for a part time job related to what I’m in college for. I recently learned that I could work as a “sitter” for kids at…

    Vacation

      The hubster and I will be going on vacation soon and I cannot wait to travel with him. It’s been a bumpy road for us as we haven’t been on the same page in a long time. I’ve been holding onto a lot of anger and hurt and not only has it been detrimental to our marriage but my health (in all areas) as well. I will speak (write) on this is another blog post. This post is about our vacation… We are booked on a cruise (his 2nd and my 3rd cruise) and we’ll be travelling to Cozumel and Yucatan (Progresso).  Unlike our last cruise, I booked excursions for…

    Not So Randomness!

    School is becoming stressful but I’m keeping my eyes on the prize. My mind is so cluttered right now.  I think I may need Yoga in my life like for real.  Usually when I’m feeling this way it’s because I’m not as close with God as I should be. A trip the hubster and I had planned for our 4 year wedding anniversary, had to be cancelled. Getting my degree is one of the top priorities for me at the moment. At least he’s had some much needed time off from work. We haven’t killed (figure of speech) each other, so that says a lot. Ha! Before heading out to…
