I’m feeling conflicted.

There are issues I continue to battle daily.

Yet I am feeling a strange happiness.

Getting out of my comfort zone is scary but exciting.

Confidence I gain.  Gee, I didn’t know I could do that.

I just gave my second sermon (and I’m terrified of public speaking).

I can also now boss grown men truck drivers with authority and not take any crap.

I had to do a video presentation and I must say it turned out well with only one take.

Thank you coach and boss lady!  I can do it!

Yay me!



Just a Vent


I think I must send out a silent signal at work when I get my purse and keys to walk out

the door for lunch, or my afternoon rounds, or even the end of the day. Every stinking time,

someone will catch me to “do one thing real quick”.  Ugggh. 

Think it’s time to lock the purse in the car and seak out the front door.




Scars on Her Heart


A little girl with a happy home and lots of love,

but a hurt heart over rejection from the one who was supposed to love her.


A big girl with lots of friends,

but a torn  heart because she wanted more.


A young lady with a wonderful friend who held her when her dreams appeared to be shattered

but a broken heart because she knew there would be no more.


A grown woman with lots of hope and anticipation

but a shattered heart from one phone call,


A middle age woman with a scarred heart

but strength and hope for the future. 



Here Comes Valentine’s Day

Well, I have been dreading Valentine’s Day knowing what is NOT going to happen. Today I came across something on Radaronline about Michelle Duggar (eeeew I can’t stand her). She commented how wives should always be available for sex even if they are tired. I am so sick of the stereotype that men want it, and women don’t.  

Well, you know what?  There are men out there who have to beg their wives.

My man has a willing wife who desires to please him. And this is a problem????  By the way, he has NEVER  complained and always seemed to enjoy himself.  

Pardon me for going on about the same old, same old. Just reminding myself it’s HIS loss.  I’m the normal one. LOLImage


My Mom Confession

I was reading an article about five mistakes mom’s make with their children.  I was glad to know I am only guilty of one. Of course that is only 80%, which is a C, but hey, nobody’s perfect.

I am guilty of playing the “I’m going to tell your father” card.  It drives my hubby nuts, especially when our daughter (who will be 12 next week) gets mouthy with me and I wonder why she doesn’t EVER talk to her dad like that.  He constantly tells me because I let her get away with too much or I make him the bad guy. 

Time to get tough. The teen years are coming, JOY!    NOT!!!!!


LOL Make Sure You Have the Correct E-mail Address

Stole this from a friend…


A Minnesota couple decided to vacation to Florida during the winter. They planned to stay at the very same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 30 years earlier. Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel times. So, the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday. His wife would fly down the following day.


The husband checked into the hotel. He was surpr…ised to find there was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an e-mail to his wife. However, he accidentally left out one letter in her e-mail address, and without realizing his error, he sent the e-mail.


Meanwhile…..somewhere in Houston, an older widow had just returned home from her husband’s funeral. He was a minister of many years who was called home to glory following a sudden heart attack. The widow decided to check her e-mail, expecting messages from relatives and friends. After reading the first message, she fainted.


The widow’s son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read:


To: My Loving Wife

Subject: I’ve Arrived

Date: 17 July 2012

I know you’re surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and we are able to send e-mails to our loved ones. I’ve just arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then! Hope your journey is not as uneventful as mine was.

P.S. Sure is hot down here



And the Debate Goes On

OK, I know I said I was going to stop reading so much on marriage on the net. I lied. This post is not about my marriage troubles though. 

Recently I have seen a great number of posts debating the issue of getting married young or waiting. I don’t understand all the fuss.

I personally got married at 21, and would have had a “honeymoon baby” if that had been possible.  I was ready to get my family started and move on with my adult life.  I had more experiences and more opportunities with my husband than I ever would have as a young single woman. I would not have traveled.  I would have continued to live with my parents and struggled to pay my tuition and car payment while working 2 minimum wage jobs. No thanks! 

Not passing judgement on those that wait. Just my experience.
