Working hard to make sense of it all



Appreciate The Things Around You #SOL23

Sunday Salutations: Happy Birthday To Me

Hello blog. It's been a while. #whyhaveyouforgottenme It's not that way at all. It's me, not you. #gag Ok, this time, it is me. Each time I've started writing, I've been distracted. So, tonight, it's just a quick note to... Continue Reading →

Day 10 – On The Road – #SOLC

Just a quick slice today about the day and upcoming days. Sure enough, our "snow storm" gave us a two hour early out, a two hour late start, and that was it! However, we don't need to make the day... Continue Reading →

Saturday Scriptings: Random Purgings

Monday Musings: Basketball and Feces

Made ya look, didn't I? I love fun titles like this because it draws people in for sure! 🙂 #thatisdisgusting Well, perhaps, but it's how I feel right now. A little context: one of my favorite podcasts is the Washedup... Continue Reading →
