5 things I’m loving right now

  1. lovehandThis hilarious woman recently coined a new term…manwad. It’s like nimwad, but a specific reference to men. I love it.
  2. Downpours complete with thunder and lightening.
  3. Dresses that are so comfortable it’s like wearing a nightgown. I only wore dresses such as these to work last week. I’m all about being as comfortable as possible when it’s that FREAKING HOT!
  4. This lotion. It’s helping me appear less Casper-the-Friendly-Ghost-ish. However, I’ll admit that I’m still pretty damned white. But that’s not Jergen’s fault.
  5. Sticking to my guns, even when it’s really hard to do.

    “Yield to temptation. It may not pass your way again.”
    Robert A. Heinlein

        “I would dearly love to resist the temptation, if you can call it that, to worry. It’s boring, it’s anti-social, it’s unproductive and it’s depressing.” I WIN. GAME OVER. :)

        Peter Mayle

      • Hmm…win? Are you twelve? And while you followed convention by using the term temptation, you’ve deviated from the overall theme. Therefore I’ll take the same liberty in my rebuttal…

        “You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage – pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically – to say ‘no’ to other things. And the way to do that is by having a bigger ‘yes’ burning inside. The enemy of the ‘best’ is often the ‘good.'” ~Stephen Covey

  • About Me

    My mother is an encyclopedia of useless information (sorry, ma, but it's true) - no one can beat her at Trivial Pursuit. As I age, I become more like dear old mom everyday. I routinely tell people about resources, recipes, tips, tricks, or websites I've heard about, tried, live by, etc. until one of my clients urged me to start a blog. So here it is! My perpetual ramblings. I hope you find them useful and amusing. If you don't, you can either keep it to yourself or leave me a well constructed critique.

    I'm a former massage therapist, a freelance journalist, and a web information architect and UX designer. I enjoy yoga, the Bar Method, camping, reading, gardening, and spending time with my friends and loved ones. I live in Colorado.
