Confession Thursday

  1. Confession Lately I stop and realize I’m not really breathing. I mean, I’m breathing enough to sustain life! But not big, or even normal sized, cleansing, good breaths. I think I’m just a scosh stressed at the moment!
  2. I don’t sweat much. Recently, I’ll finish a workout and look around and there are people dripping, I mean DRIPPING, sweat. I feel as though they look over at me and think, “Hey, what’s up with you? You’ve barely got a sheen to you. Did you do anything at all?” One guy’s shins were sweating the other day. I don’t think my shins have ever produced a drop of sweat in my whole life.
  3. I have some extremely amusing people in my life – a whole slew of them. Their wit, sarcasm, intelligence, and ability to make me giggle makes me so darned happy.
  4. I recently had my bank automatically change my savings account to a checking account based on the number of transfers I made in one month. Apparently making this switch for me is a federal regulation. This pisses me off. Does our federal government have nothing better to do than worry about my savings account? If not, I’ve got some ideas for topics they might need to pay attention to.
  5. I think shoe return polices stink. I bought a pair of shoes recently that seemed comfy in the store, but became the bane of my existence within 10 minutes of wearing them for the first time. Now I’m stuck with them. Grr.

Confession Thursday

  1. Confession I’m officially an old lady. I bought tennis shoes made by Dr. Scholls. They feel like I’m walking on clouds. How could I resist that?
  2. So, I’m heading out of town for a week to visit my little brother and his family, right? The weather is supposed to be crap. Honestly, I don’t give a hoot because sitting on my butt for a few days is exactly what I need right now. Not that it’ll happen, however. They have a two-year-old. Sitting isn’t in their vocabulary at that age. Unless Polar Express is on. I hear he’s obsessed with that movie. Guess we’ll be watching that a lot!
  3. Here’s a little secret insight to me – if you say you’re going to do something, I expect that you’re going to actually do that. Bizarre, right? Apparently there are people out there for whom this isn’t the case.
  4. I walk fast. Like faster than 90% of the people around me. Considering I’m fairly short, I’m guessing this looks kind of odd.
  5. I really don’t like the way black licorice tastes or smells. I think people who do like it are definitely in the minority.

5 things I’m loving right now

  1. lovehandMissing skiing traffic on my way to and from my older brother’s place in Breckenridge.
  2. Getting to spend time with my brother Todd and his family and my sister Mallory and her family.
  3. Peeping the entire Old Gringo line in one place. A full wall dedicated to cowboy boots that are like art pieces made me VERY happy.
  4. Being okay with eating the same thing over and over again. I can’t really cook at the moment, so it’s a lot of rotisserie chicken and salads these days.
  5. Quiet time at home at the end of a busy weekend. It’s nice to be able to power-down a little bit with no expectations of me or my time.

5 things I’m loving right now

lovehandI’m going to start providing these without prior comment like I do with Confession Thursday posts. Well, unless I feel like I have something earth-shattering to share. And even then, that would be highly debatable no doubt!

  1. Shiny, polished boots.
  2. Good conversationalists.
  3. Watching old movies from your childhood that make you nostalgic.
  4. Good friends who look after you when you’re glum.
  5. A giant plate of nachos.

Coming Clean

I have to come clean about something. Partly because I feel it’s the right thing to do and partly because my friend Elizabeth basically demanded that I do so.

See, I sort of called her, and her odd taste in shoes, out in this post. And now that I’m the proud owner of two pairs, yes two pairs, of booties (or ankle boots), I need to come clean.

In my initial post about booties, I showed a pair I did like. I got that pair for Christmas and they kick hinney. So then I did some investigating. I now own these as well:

Beamer BootsI’m becoming a convert.  But I will not, ever, wear them with skirts or dresses. I still stand by that. And no, my fingers aren’t crossed.

  • 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.
