Who cares...
Sunday, July 10, 2011      1 comments

I have a bad habit of not seeing things that I don’t want to see. Things that hurt, things that make me crazy and upset…I just block them out. I’ve got a friend…a friend that came back to life…or might as well have. It’s one of those jacked u... Read more

Yesterday was a huge blow to my self esteem... No one died, I wasn't physically threatened, no one I know suffered, I wasn't embarrassed in any way, ... But, something happened to me on the inside that I can't quite explain. I was angry, I wa... Read more

...That's how I feel. At least once a year I have a serious tension buildup in my neck and back and, well, folks...it's that time of year again. When the stress in my life stacks the deck and I end up bluffing a really crappy hand. Every time... Read more

OK…it’s been a while since Miss Jessica wore the infamous “mom jeans” to a concert/chili cookoff in Pembroke Pines, FL sporting a curvier figure. It‘s been a little over a year in fact, but the incident still resonates with me. I find it perso... Read more
Ever been dumped?…..by a friend?
Sunday, May 23, 2010      15 comments

What happens when a friend “dumps” you? Have you ever been dumped as a friend? As if I weren’t self-conscious enough through the younger years of my life, there have been a few friends through the years that decided they didn‘t need me in thei... Read more

Earlier I wrote about my fear of public speaking and an upcoming speech that I had to give. May I say I am very thankful to everyone who gave support and kind words. It went very well. It was very informal and when I left I felt as thought I'... Read more
I'm scared to death...

In two days...no, make that a day and a half, I've got to give a presentation in front of a group of strangers as part of my job. I've always been terrified of public speaking and have embarrassed myself more times than I can count. Why in the... Read more

Wednesday, May 12, 2010      2 comments

Do you ever have those mornings when you hear what should be an all too familiar ear piercing noise? You can't quite figure out where the sound is coming from or how in the world to stop it. You know the days when you feel like the underside o... Read more
No Longer a Smoothie Virgin... ;)
Sunday, May 09, 2010      4 comments

Just made my first smoothie and it was AMAZING!!! Why has someone not forced me to try one of these before now?! I’m still in the process of adding perpetual variety into my diet and exercise and what a way to go! My first was a very simple ... Read more

I’d like to start off by saying that I really appreciate the positive response to my first blog and the generous compliments that were given. Thank you for finding some inspiration amongst my ramblings. I don’t think I had any plans to write a... Read more

OK…..I’ve never written a blog in my LIFE… So when the SparkPage message says “First Blog” they are totally spot on. I don’t think I’ve ever been one to put myself “out there”. Growing up a painfully shy child and then later a terrified teenag... Read more
