Christmas Ain’t for the Weak

Last I left you all, I was antsy about getting Christmas started. I was chomping on the bit to dig out the decorations and set up a tree. I wanted 24/7 Christmas music and was ready for Thanksgiving to come to a close.

Well here we are. Four days after Thanksgiving. A perfect time for me to radiate that previously suppressed holiday excitement, except I’m not…

Is It Christmas Yet?

I’m not one to rush through life. I like to look forward to things coming up and make it an overall experience rather than enjoying one day or one week whether it’s a holiday or a vacation, but I’m kind of struggling guys. Because Thanksgiving is so late this year I’m having to put off getting into the Christmas spirit and I’m not about suppressing my (or anyone else’s) fa-la-la-la-la.  Continue reading

Tis’ the [Spooky] Season

Is it just me or does everything have a creepy vibe this time of year…? Weird sound coming from another part of the house? It’s a murderer trying to get it. Wind howling outside? It’s a someone from beyond the grave trying to contact you.

I blame it on horror movies.

Well I am here to tell you all (in case I stop posting and you never hear from me again) I think I have a stalker… Continue reading

Is It Just a Phase? (Oh God I Hope So…)

There are dozens, if not hundreds, but probably thousands of memes dedicated to a social interaction that nearly everyone has experienced at some point and instead of describing it to you, I will share some of those memes: Continue reading

Taking care of “Business”

Let me just start by saying this will in no way be dinner conversation. Nor will it be a tasteful (talk about a bad choice of words…) refined blog post. Funny: maybe. Crude: definitely. TMI: out the wazoo. This will be an artful piece comprised of a myriad of ways you can say “poop”. You have been warned…

If you can believe it, this is my second blog post sharing a story about poop. I think I’ve found a new sub category I can expand into! Continue reading

Bloggers Are People Too (Who Knew!?)

I’ve made an immense amount of connections on WordPress and an awful lot of friends I might add; friends from all over the world, which I’m rather proud of. My favorite part of blogging has easily been the friendships I’ve made via comments, follows, and likes. I look forward to the remarks made on my posts (which have become sporadic- sorry) and interacting with people on theirs. For me, blogging isn’t about the numbers. Sure, it’s cool that 800+ people (supposedly) follow along and are curious about me and what I have to say, but in all honestly, the handful of followers that I have now, especially the ones who make an effort to interact with me, are enough.

Don’t Be Like Me

I’ve been working Saturdays this month (not my norm), so I’ve been taking random days throughout the week off to make up for my extra hours (known as comp time in the corporate world). I decided to take off last Monday, but it wasn’t one of those lazy days where I do nothing but watch tv and play Candy Crush all day. I only did that for half the day…
