Rushing Around

I absolutely hate rushing around. For one thing, I hate to be late to -- you name it -- dinner, movies, appointments, everything. I get pretty anxious when it's close to the time to leave for any of these places. And I'm a clock watcher. I'm afraid to leave the house by myself, so my... Continue Reading →


One Tail at a TimeĀ (OTAT) is a non-profit organization that rescues dogs. I recently discovered that each year, beginning 4 years ago, they organize a sit-in for animals who need help. The cool thing about it is that you can participate remotely!!! YAAAAYYYYYYY!!!!! This means the world to me because I always want to help... Continue Reading →

I don't like being among large amounts of people gathered together where different individuals are going in different... Continue Reading →


"'re getting old!!" That's what my body would tell me if it could talk. In fact, my body does talk to me, just not in words. For example, when I wake up every single  morning for months and my back hurts, it's probably time to get a new mattress, or at least flip over the... Continue Reading →


Something I really struggle with is forgiving myself. I'm so used to beating myself up for anything and everything that I might as well be bruised all over. I think of myself as a loser. I know better, and I'm improving as far as not beating myself up goes. For example, I began working out... Continue Reading →
