Times are a changing

I left you last time with a mostly vague post about being sick and taking some time off. I’m hoping to get back on a normal schedule again, soon. It will take a little time to adjust to a new schedule. When I’m not here, I’ll be working and studying. Hang with me! =) K?

The big thing that has happened recently — We sold our house!

Are you homeless when you have no permanent mailing address? If that’s what deems homeless, then that we are! What an amazing adventure we’re going on.

Yep, another vague post. ;)

Just know — I’m happy.

I enjoy this blog — thought you’d enjoy the humor in it as well.

Where oh where have I been?

It’s a REALLY LoooooOOooOooooooong story.


I got sick.

That’s not the full length story, is it?  Well… I’ll post more about it when I’m ready and it will probably take several posts to get through the story of it all. I am “sick.” I will be “sick” for the rest of my life. I am not letting it pull me down too much or very often. Most people have no idea I am sick. I was just out of work for several weeks while I dealt with some issues and got back on track.  So, I’m on track now and feeling really good. This means more of my time is dedicated to a household focus. There will be some down time where I can get back to Thankful Thursdays and other things… like getting my ass back on the treadmill! I hope you will hang with me while I’m out of touch a little while longer. 

I am very thankful for those of you that are still hanging around and waiting for me to make a come back! =)

Thankful Thursday: Publishing Ideas

Today, I am thankful for my dear friend, and author, Libby Heart.

This week she gave me an amazing idea on how to publishing one of my books.

I wrote 50,000 for NaNoWriMo in 2013. I have this amazing story, but I haven’t done anything with it yet. This week, I randomly emailed her a list of chapters that are completed. Not the details, just titles of the chapters, and I realized how much I have… I HAVE LOT!! :O Wahoo!!!  And then I found about 20 more chapters waiting in the wings. Yippee!

I’m going to spend some time refocusing on the complete chapters, put them in order, and then work on self publishing. :O

WHAT?! That’s right. PUBLISHING!!!  My goal is to complete this task, this year.

It’s a little crazy maybe…but also exciting…

Thank you, Libby, for your backing, confidence, and support. <3 =)

Thankful Thursday: The Radiology Staff from last night

Yes, it’s Friday, but this is my Thankful Thursday post.
I was too tired by the time everything settled down last night to write this up. So, here we go.

The night time MRI staff at the hospital I’m at this week, were AMAZING!! People are usually getting MRIs for yucky reasons, and I was in for a yucky reason. The MRI team were so accommodating, welcoming, funny — make that hilarious.  We’re not going to go into the nitty gritty details of this hilarity.. You’ll have to buy the book when it’s ready to find out what went down.

I was wheeled in by a thin young kid. I was greeted by Magic Mike! WHAT??! I can’t remember the exact words, but it was something like, “Welcome to the show. I’m Magic Mike.” I got out of the silly wheel chair as quickly as possible since I didn’t need the damn thing anyway. I looked around and there were three tall men with big smiles.

Magic Mike was built, around the belly, not what you would be expecting if you watched the movie. I chuckled and shook his hand. I met the other to gentlemen. They were more clearly muscular and younger. Magic told me he was recently a patient so he’s a little out of shape because of his knee replacement. He slipped off the stage during a show, too much baby oil, and wham — there went the knee. He had me rolling. I was so thankful for the funnies and belly laughs we had before the MRI started.

My radiology team really helped me get through a rough day. I got to see the pictures ad got educated on the results. Very glad they treated me so well.

Thank you to Magic Mike, Raging Bull, and Skate King.  I hope I entertained you for the hour plus I was down there as much you entertained me and made me feel normal for a little while.

Thankful Thursday: It’s been a while

It sure has been a while, hasn’t it?

I haven’t disappeared, just been busy. Busy working and having fun, don’t worry!!

There has been some travel to other states and long hours in the office. It all works out in the end.

Our Little Thing, our #fuzzybutt, our snuggling puppy is nearly two years old. Where did the time go? She’s the perfect addition to our family.

We still miss Samantha Michele daily. She came up in conversation a lot lately. Its weird how she comes and goes.  She came in a dream a few nights ago. The same night I learned a good friend lost her first born furbaby. I sure hope it was a sign Sam was taking care of Sydney.

Sam has been in doggy heaven for what seems too long, but it sometimes seems like yesterday we lost her. We will always love you, Samantha!!!

Work has been busy and now big changes are afoot. We will see how it all shakes out in a few weeks.  Keep your fingers crossed we get a new project!!! We like the challenge of new work.

I thank you for still hanging with me though I have been silent for some time.

Be thankful for something every day!!!

Thankful Thursday: What?!?

It is Thursday again?!  Where the heck does the time go?

I knew April was going to be a very busy month, but WOW, it has been busier than I was expecting. A lot of work. More than I was planning. HUGE meeting this week, taking more time for me this year than a similar one did last year. WOW!   Did I mention WOW?!

Soon, this huge meeting will be over and I’ll be able to chalk it up to another great learning experience. 

And then, I’ll sleep.  I have been sleeping, but when you’re dreaming work, it isn’t really like sleeping, is it? No, it’s like working for another 8 hours on top of the 11 you already did. Dayum!!!

With that… I best be getting ready for another day of a HUGE meeting and scoot off to work soon.

Be well.


Thankful Thursday: Soul Mate

I know I have said it before, but I am so very thankful for my best friend; my soul mate. My husband is the most awesome person on the planet. He’s not perfect, but he is perfect for me. The laughter, the snuggles, the conversation…perfect. He makes me so happy.  Happy doesn’t even come close to how I feel. When I saw this part of Jerry McGuire for the first time — I finally knew what I was feeling. Complete, is the only way I know how to put it.  I know it sounds corny and maybe even a little cliche, but it’s true. When I am with him I feel whole.  Even his simplest acts of kindness are the deepest examples of love.  I feel that I am the most special person in his life, as he is in mine. Who knew all these years later we’d still feel this way about each other? Him, this love, this feeling of completeness, is the best thing that has ever happened to me.

Thankful Thursday: My Job

While my real life job is taking me away from the blog, I am still very thankful for it.  I am learning a ton. If you can’t tell, I am super busy. Heck, I even got our team new work last week! Eeeek!

One of our goals is to “spread the word” about what we do. While we don’t really have the bandwidth to handle more work, that is part of our goals, so I am bound to do it.  And do it I did.

We have a new charge number and we’ll be defining new requirements in a week or two for a process that needs automating! Wahoo! That’s very exciting for us. We’re delving into a bit of uncharted waters, but that’s what makes the job worth doing. Right?   Learning new things, meeting new people — Sounds like I’m getting paid to learn and talk to folks. Heck yeah!

Be well, followers. Be well. It may be a while between posts, but know that I think about this blog and you all, often.
