If you’re on the internet, you’ve seen or heard of the #metoo ‘movement’. This is my first and only input on it. What it comes down to is that victims of sexual abuse, assault, misconduct or sexism of any type are encouraged to post a #metoo, to count themselves in the numbers of people who have been privy to unwanted/unfair sexually/sexism charged encounters. Pretty basic concept, right? Continue reading “Sexual Violence, Predators and, Oh Yes, #metoo.”
And oh, the car. I am thrilled to have one – running – again. The price was just right. Continue reading “The Reality… A Broke Girl’s Ramblings (Part 3 of 3)”

I’ve mentioned that I haven’t been blogging consistently lately because I’m busy and exhausted. That could not have been more true. But give or take a week or two ago the craziness simmered down for the most part. Though I did go to camp with the man for the weekend and bought a (new to me) car since then. Continue reading “How I’m ACTUALLY Doing… A Broke Girl’s Ramblings (Part 2 of 3)”
Once again I find myself taking an extended leave from the good old blogging world. I haven’t given up and disappeared for good, but as the title states, sometimes life happens.
I’m one of those people that always has trouble finding balance Continue reading “Tales From the Couch: Sometimes Life Happens”
Well, I have been taking a few weeks break from the blogging world for a bit. Have needed to get caught up on some life stuff that I just couldn’t put off anymore. That being said, I have spent the bulk of today going through my newsfeed, trying to get caught up on a little bit of what I have missed over here at good ol’ WordPress.
I’ve had some laughs and giggles, have learned a few things, and have sympathized with a few of you, and am eager for some more of it! But the point of this post is, I came across PennyWilsonWrites and her Meet & Greet post and thought it was a brilliant idea! (And I hope she doesn’t mind I’ve linked to her post) Continue reading “Getting to Know YOU Better”
I have been busy lately. If you’ve read any of my previous posts you already know that I’ve been working at trying to simplify and declutter my home and my life. I’ve done another round of house purging, I’ve finally started (after 3 plus years) decorating, I’ve been working my way through clearing out my closets and I have not been having an easy time with any of it. Through it all the one roadblock I keep coming up against that has made every decision on what to toss, put up, what to keep such a painstaking process is I have no idea what my style is. I have no idea what type of image I want to project, if I have an image at all, if things are age appropriate and what my image says about me and what, if anything, I would even want it to say. And yes, this is one of those girly/first world problems/consumerism type posts. Sometimes it’s just necessary to take a break and head on over to the shallow end of the pool. Continue reading “Cleaning Out My Closets; Trying to Simplify My Life and Figure Out My Style all the While Trying to Look Age Appropriate. Yikes!”
I’ve been out of touch for the last bit. Now that my summer vacation time is all run out I’m back to work as usual, though I’m putting in later and busier days as we’ve been understaffed due to unexpected turnover and sickness, plus I’ve been training new staff. Continue reading “Tales From the Couch: Just Another Random Update Post”
Well, it’s raining today – of course. So my eagerly anticipated departure back out on to the lake has been delayed a bit. Not that like papyrus I will dissolve and disappear into the ether at the slightest touch of rain Continue reading “Tales From My Couch: Rainy Day Musings on Pop Culture and Blogging”

One of the perks of my particular contract at work is that I have a certain minimum hours per week I need to put in. That hardly sounds like a perk (aside from the guaranteed minimum income), except with a few basic math skills, if you take the amount I am mandated to fulfill, account for one or two shifts working out of town per week, and divvy it up over the work week, it is easy to assess that my hours can be completed within 4 days, as opposed to 5.
