This is the kind of winter that makes even the toughest ‘winter lovers’ fatigued. It is the kind of winter that a shovel can’t haul the snow and it breaks. Freezing rain turns the road into a black ice rink. Plunging temps can cause frostbite in a mere few minutes. And…the kids are at home […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
It’s almost a new year and I have given many thoughts to New Year’s Resolutions for myself and my family.

My business is steady and I love the freedom of creating my own hours and fitting […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Today, I literally ran for the hills. I wanted a challenge. Ever since I ran a half marathon earlier this year, I found myself pretty burned out from running.

When it comes to painting my new/old house, I neither move slow nor fast. I trudge at a steady pace. One day, I’ll just tape a wall. The next day, I’ll slap some joint compound on those nail holes. The next day, I’ll sand a bit and paint some trim. Little by little, I get […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I’m ready to run, even if it is only my mouth. Today was my first four mile training run for my half marathon in June. This is also the beginning of a series of blogs about preparing my body and mind for this event. It will consist of a bit of complaint, swearing and spirit! […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
