Facing the truth

It’s me, checking in here, with a topic that I’m sort of afraid to write about. I only say that for two reasons. The first is because I’m sort of afraid of the backlash I’m going to get with it. If you’ve read my blogs, I’ve been pretty nice and haven’t necessarily discussed anything controversial, […]

My love affair

Don’t get too excited, this isn’t my personal rendition of 50 Shades of Gray. No dirty stories, so feel free to read on, Mom! Instead, I’m actually going to talk to you about food. While my blog wasn’t originally intended to review specific restaurants, I have to take some time out to talk about a […]

Rise to the top?

When did it become okay to step all over everyone to get what you want? We live in America- the land of the successful. The land where anything is possible. The land where money seems to buy happiness.The land where the American Dream began when people needed to escape religious persecution. Then the American Dream […]

I am a runner…

I’m not a runner How many times have I heard this statement? A lot. I’ve actually muttered it a few times. But, guess what? Now, I’m a runner. Okay, so I’ve never competed in a race and my max is 3.5 miles at 5.5 miles per hour on a really good day. But, I can […]

Politically Correct

Holy, Governor LePage. Thanks for being a role model for our kids. I’m sort of torn between a morbid fascination with this man who can walk around saying whatever comes to his mind and pure and utter disgust for his diarrhea of the mouth. You know, living up in the county, I don’t think I’ve […]

Hollywood Kissing Scenes

While I was doing the dishes this morning, I got the sudden urge to sit on the couch and watch a good ol’ Nicholas Sparks movie. So then my brain, being the fantastical way that it is, started to think about why I have this secret love affair with Hollywood portrayal of perfect love. I […]

Try to understand…

Many people wonder why I work two jobs, including myself at times. I will often say, “I have to.” But that’s not entirely true. We could definitely make ends meet, barely, but survive. I work two jobs and there are still times our bank account is in the hole and we are behind on a […]
