Getting Creative #IWSG

Every month on the first Wednesday, the Insecure Writer’s Support Group gathers across the bloggosphere to express our insecurities and encourage others. Today is that day! When it comes to writing this year, I’m not bounding through the progress. But that’s because my primary personal push has been exercise and fitness. That’s led to using…

Hi, I’m an ISTJ #CatastropheMode

Well, January has been par for the course at the Town’s End with three doctor visits, two rounds of antibiotics, and multiple uses of inhalers. Ah the joys of being a parent. Thankfully, all I’ve had is a lingering cough that’s been around since last April, so I’ve been able to tend to my little…

2018 Year in Review

Goals. Such a terrifying concept for me. I have a thing with starting stuff and never finishing it. I set goals, and never meet them. Well, back in January, I made known a few of my goals. 1. Meet all the criteria for the Colonel’s Challenge. I did all the weight lifting and exercise, though…

Eight Years #ParentLife

Eight years ago, something special happened. My daughter was born. It’s a bit of a shock to think about it. I mean, EIGHT YEARS. How can time fly by so darn quickly? One moment, I’m cradling an infant and next I’ve got a girl who is at the right height to act as an armrest…

2017 #YearInReview

I’d have to say 2017 wasn’t my best year. In fact, I might rank it my worst so far. It was the year of injury and illness, of used-up sick leave and emotional bankruptcy. From January to December, it was filled with some ailment or another that left me despairing and sobbing. But I kept…

Pass Me Another Red Bull Please

Criminitly! I missed IWSG last week. I missed a lot of things last week. Work. Sleep. Sanity. It started the week of Thanksgiving. I got a sore throat, cough… you know, the usual stuff that comes with a cold. Things improved, and then on came the fevers. Shivering. Sweating. Freezing. Burning. I spent a few…

Halfway Through 2017 #life

With the end of June coming in just a couple of days, I’ve been reflecting on this year. It hasn’t been the greatest. I had my share of emotional breakdowns, lamented the many medical issues plaguing my family, and despaired that I wouldn’t finish anything. But there’s no point to focusing on the bad, right?…
