Things that Annoy, Frustrate or Aggravate me 28

Happy Thursday!  I’ve done a few of these posts in the pasts and I figure it’s high time that I get on it again.  I know I’m not alone in these annoyances, so pipe in and let me know what irritates you. It annoys/frustrates/aggravates me when: people that stop dead in their tracks, while walking, because they are so engrossed in their phones.  Listen, I get it.  I’m on my phone as much as the next person, but for the love all of things, step aside if you can’t ‘walk and chew gum at the same time’.  Which leads me […]

Thursday Thoughts

Change and Growth 14

There are going to be some changes around these parts, particularly with the Friday posts.  I’m not exactly sure what changes will be happening so stay tuned.  I just know that there is a shake up but things will stay largely the same.  I’ll still have the link up and some sort of variation of this Happy/gratitude list but just revamped. The reason for the change:  Sometimes you just need to walk away from friendships that don’t serve you any longer.  It doesn’t mean I’m not disappointed or I hate the person, not at all.  I just simply value myself […]

Life and Serious Shit. 14

Life has been exhausting and so draining in the last, what, five days? I don’t even know what day of the week it is to be honest with you.  My mother-in-law was admitted to the ICU since last Thursday and her back surgery was (obviously) cancelled because of her state. She started slipping hard and then all of a sudden on Sunday morning, pretty much just after I got back from my overnight visit at the farm, we got a call from Jeff’s dad informing us that she was declining and fast and that we needed to come up north […]

Life Lately 4

Did you all enjoy the lovely three-day long weekend?  I sure did!  If I could seriously figure out how to get my organization to work longer hours so we could work a four-day work week and have three-day long weekends, I’d be all over that.  Nevertheless, I’m back to work and happy that it is a short work week, even moreso than usual as I am not working this Friday so it’s an extra short work-week.  Yahooo! We had AMAZING weather all weekend long, with temperatures soaring into the double digits AND alllllllllllll of the snow was melting, which made for […]
