About Me

Trying to remember that there is always a reason, always something that makes you smile during the day- recognizing the event, person or situation that made you smile will make your day seem that much better.

I wouldn't blame a single person if they stopped reading what I write...
I am inspired by all of you who write every single day.
I wish I could.
I don't really have anything to say...
I work
I come home
I sleep
I do over.
Boring life..
Work is okay...
I was excited about an opportunity...
Like....really, out of my head, I want this..
It doesn't appear that's happening...

Hubby turned another year older....
Like most (old) married couples his presents were terribly practical (I am sure I have written it before..but I HATE practical presents...there always should be some whimsy)...
I got him an electric toothbrush...
That's what he asked for ....so that's what he got..
I did get him a ring he wanted for his super secret club he joined.

I do have tomorrow off and am heading north all by myself (hubby has to work and has a super secret meeting tomorrow night) for the youngest nephew's kindergarten play....I can't believe that is happening already....but as I told him the other day, we have a date.
They will restore my heart and soul...I know that they will...
I must remember to grab my camera because we want to try for some family pics at some point this weekend...
Then we celebrate mother in laws birthday with a ladies brunch saturday morning, hubbys and bro in laws birthday with a BBQ Saturday night and Mother's Day Brunch on Sunday.

So, nothing exciting in my corner of the world....I head back to Pittsburgh at the end of this month for some much needed girl time with one of my oldest and bestest friends in the whole world....I can't wait...
In the mean time, I will try (I really do try) to pull myself out of this funk and post more regularly...but know I am reading (even if I am not always commenting) and always sending my love and positive thoughts to your corners of the world!!


  1. It's always good to see you here Col! Just post when you want to. We're not going anywhere. It's difficult anyway when you work full time. I agree with you, I don't really like practical presents!! The time spent with your girlfriend will lift your spirits , I'm sure. Enjoy your weekend with the family. Sending hugs your way.

  2. I thought I'd pop into your world and say hi. I'm glad I did. Like you, I do read more at random but I just don't have the time to comment on so many if I want to read, go to the beach, watch movies or basically enjoy life! I've posted myself out of the blue and when the mood strikes I'll be there. Don't sweat it Nic. Those of us who follow you, adore you! Hugs sweetie!

  3. Hope you have a great time with your friend! And lots of family time too is great.

    We leave for a much needed vacation tomorrow. Visiting my step-son and his wife and my brother and his family. My SIL however, already wants to know what my plans are for every single minute we are there, and we just don't vacation like that, we just go with the flow. Should be interesting!
