The Post No One (Including Me) Thought Would Ever Happen

Hi there. If I’m still on your email list, it was probably a surprise to see my blog show up in your inbox. Thanks for your unfailing support! (Or for forgetting to unsubscribe. Either way . . . WIN!) I’m just as surprised to be writing a post. So, hey . . . I feel […]

Adventures in Tree Trimming

This time last year, I was about to start a secondĀ  job. Thirty-five extra hours, which was as close to full-time as I could get without actually calling it full-time. I had one day off a week and after a few days working both jobs, that day was strictly for rest. As a consequence, I […]

The Opinion On Everything Age

This morning I read an interesting observation on Facebook from Lisa Nowak. She’s noticed a big decline in presidential signs/bumper stickers in her hometown and every response cited the same two reasons for this: No one’s mind is ever changed because of them and they invite trouble.

But there are so many subcategories, it’s entirely possible to be a bestseller in something as soon as your book comes out. But that’s never on the cover. […]

Your Mom Was Right About Honesty

Your mom or whoever told you honesty is the best policy. My last blog surprised me with the response. I wanted to write something since I hadn’t in a while (Something I’m trying really hard not to do) and my social media blah was on my mind. So, I wrote my mind, hit publish and […]
