How I Almost Died After Seeing a Spider

Okay, this may be a wee bit exaggerated but at the time it felt like I was going to have a heart attack. I really don’t like spiders. Like… really really REALLY don’t like spiders.   I’m in my shed and I grabbed the bowl I use for fresh water for the birdbath off the shelf. […]

My Aha Moment!

Imagine my surprise when I was contacted by a representative of Mutual of Omaha’s “My Aha Moment” to ask if I would share an Aha! moment from my life.

Reduce Stress, Increase Joy & Productivity—Why Is Simple So HARD?

Originally posted on Kristen Lamb's Blog:

Out of sheer frustration, I made a meme

Originally posted on Ned's Blog:
I don’t know why, but this always chaps me: Carts left within arm’s reach of the corral. Parked 100 yards away and it’s too far to walk? I get that. Or maybe you’re an old smoker and you only have so much air left in your oxygen tank? I…

Had an appointment at the doctor’s this morning. I found a spot on my scalp that was dark so I figured I would have it checked out (family history of melanoma). Good news? Doc thinks it’s only a scab. Bad news? Apparently I hit my head harder on the bird feeder than I originally thought […]
