A Send-off to 2016

I suppose I should give 2016 a proper send-off.  Though many view this as a year that we should never talk about again because it was supposedly the worst year ever, I don’t see it that way.

As I see it, there isn’t a year that is going to pass where we’re not going to go through trials, experience grief, loss, and heartbreak… Continue reading

Merry Christmas to all!

I just want to wish everyone a very, Merry Christmas!

merry-christmas-2016

I want to thank anyone who stops by to read this, even though y’all should be with your families (I scheduled this post, so I win).  I’m blessed to have regular readers and even to just be able to write on this blog.  I enjoy it and honestly, I’d continue it even if no one read it.

But still, I’m glad you do. Continue reading

5 Things [2016 edition]

Last year I did this as a prompt piece in December and I was thinking it might actually be a good one to do every year.  It’s a nice way to reflect on the events that happened during the year and to keep perspective of the good and the bad moments because even bad moments can turn into good ones when you look at it with the right attitude.  So once again I will answer the following question: Continue reading

It’s a Girl

We’ve had our kittens for just over two months now and we have now figured out that one of our little boys… is actually a girl.

I know, you’re probably thinking, ‘How did you not know it was a girl in the first place?’  Well, for one, we were told they were both boys and just trusted that statement.  Two, we could honestly not tell if she was a boy or not because we didn’t really know the proper way to tell the difference.

2016 Favorites

I was going to post this a few days ago, but I’ve been sick.  So you’re getting it now.

Another year, another set of favorites to share.  I really enjoyed quite a few things this year – discovering new movies, new songs, and reading new books.  Of course, I enjoyed some more than others, which is what this post is all about.  Only this year I had to take my favorite book category and break it down into sub-categories – favorite young adult book, favorite adult fiction, and favorite non-fiction.

Anyway, let’s get to what made my favorites of 2016 list! Continue reading

Bookworm Problems (v. 3)

Hello bookworms!

I’m back with some more bookworm problems.  I’m actually currently experiencing the “reading slump” problem I mentioned in version one of this series.  I mean, I’m reading a book right now, it’s just taking me a long time to do it because I’ve been weirdly tired lately.  Isn’t it terrible when that happens?  Being too tired to read? Continue reading

Waiting

waiting-hourglass

Waiting is something none of us like to do.  Sure, if it’s our day off and we have no plans for the day, we might not mind sitting in the waiting room for that one appointment we have.  But when we’re running late for work there is no way we’re going to wait behind more than four cars at Dunkin’ or if it’s cold and dark outside we don’t want to wait in line for that one item we need at the store.
