First the bad…then the really good

First I’ll start off with the not really that thankful for item. This past Monday, the one right before Thanksgiving, I was let go from my job. While I allowed myself to wallow and feel sorry for myself for an evening (and part of the next day), I can’t just sit and feel self-pity.

Three months

So almost three months have gone by since my last post. Oops. Sorry about that (to all two of you that regularly check this little blog space).

What if…

Jul 14

There are numerous times a day that you could stop and ask what if. It makes you wonder how we survive anything, but yesterday, we truly had a wow, we-are-so-lucky-because-what-if moment. The Hubs went outside to turn the grill on to cook our dinner and my chicken for the week. I eat chicken for lunch everyday and oftentimes eat it for dinner as well, and it just...
