7 Quick Takes Friday





---1---
TGIF!!  It was a relatively normal week.  FINALLY!  It was busy, of course.  Our lives are usually very busy, but thankfully this past week didn't feel frantic like most weeks have recently.  Maybe it's just that I'm finally getting back into a groove.

Wednesday I was scheduled for my annual mammogram.  As I was going through the check-in process, the lady is asking all of the usual questions; who is the insurance policy holder, who is my employer, etc.  She then asks me how many employees there are with my company......

7 Quick Takes Friday

TGIF!  Am I right?

I think Mother Nature must be suffering from hot flashes.  One day it's 70 degrees here, the next day it's 12 degrees.  TWELVE!!  UGH!  I am NOT a winter person - never have been, never will be.  I cannot stand the cold.  You'd think I have enough padding to stay relatively warm, but you'd be WRONG!!

What the Heck Wednesday

Is it Friday yet? 

So much has happened lately, both good and bad, that my mind is in a whirl.   I can't focus my thoughts.  I just want to throw up my hands and say "What the...???"

A Few Quick Takes


TGIF!  This has been a horrible week. It's been really cold with freezing rain, sleet, etc.   I'm so over Winter.  

First of all, let me please ask for prayers for a very special family.  The home of a grandmother and her two young granddaughters was destroyed by fire Wednesday afternoon.    These two precious girls have been through so much in their short lives.  Only three years ago, they lost their mother.  So, please keep this family in your prayers.

What the Heck Wednesday

As I mentioned a few days ago, I didn't really make any resolutions for 2014.  I haven't had much success in the past, so why set myself up for failure.  But I do have a few goals in mind.  One of which is to improve my health.  Part of that means that I have to get my big behind in gear and exercise more.  Okay, who are we kidding.  Exercise. Period.

I've gained so much weight these past few years, I don't really have many workout pieces that fit comfortably, so I tried to find a few basic pieces online.  It's frustrating to do a search for plus-sized exercise clothes and repeatedly get results with models who are size 0....  Really?

7 Quick Takes Friday


Sorry I've been MIA.  It's been crazy around here.  


I received a call from my mother the morning of the 23rd.  She called to tell me she was the hospital with my grandmother.  Apparently my grandmother was letting her dog out to potty, and she stopped at the top of the back steps to bend over and put the dog's sweater on her.  When she bent over, she just kept going, flipped down the back steps, landing on her face with her arms pinned under her.
