The return of the “old normal” (somedaysoon)

Just as I was pondering how to begin a blog about my Unique Ego, a school bus passed my house. For those of you reading this on March 1, 2021, you will understand why this entry is about to take a turn. We are in what feels like the winding down of the Covid-19 Pandemic… Continue reading The return of the “old normal” (somedaysoon)

Underlinable

I have been reading a book that was loaned to me by a friend. Loaned. Not given. As a general rule, when given a book on loan, one should protect that book, keeping the pages smooth (no dog-earing the corners) and barely opening it so as not to crack the spine. One should avoid using… Continue reading Underlinable

I didn’t intend to post today…

Haven't been writing as much. I feel so much better when I do. I feel connected to God more acutely when I write.  But even though it’s hard for me to admit, because I have a tendency to devalue myself and talk not so nicely about myself (out-loud and in my head), I connect better… Continue reading I didn’t intend to post today…

“Go to your rooms!”

When the pandemic first arrived and our government gave us the “stay at home order” suggestion 🙃, my husband’s friend said something like “It’s sort of like God looked down at all of our meanness and fighting and hate and said, ‘That’s enough! Everyone…go to your rooms!”. I am not sure of the soundness of… Continue reading “Go to your rooms!”

Junk drawers, closets and character defects

As I have mentioned before, I am a Realtor. I have shown hundreds of houses over the past 4 years. And should you ever decide to sell your house, spoiler alert, we will open your closets and junk drawer (or drawers). We try our best to give people a reasonable notice before a showing, but… Continue reading Junk drawers, closets and character defects

Swipe left…

Not that I have used them personally, but because I try my best to not bury my head in the technological sand just because I am 49 (...and happily married, I might add), I know a thing or two about dating sites. Bear with me… The one thing I know is that at least one… Continue reading Swipe left…

I’ve hit the wall! (…or is it hitting me?)

I am writing today because I need it. Badly. In Runner’s Speak, I have “hit the wall”. For a runner, that means they have been running for a lengthy period of time and have depleted their glycogen levels and feel like they are potentially going to keel over or “bonk out” (I learned that phrase… Continue reading I’ve hit the wall!

49er (almost 50 but not quite!)

Tomorrow is my birthday. It’s not the big 5-0, but I will be turning the number only one year away from that. I can hardly stand to even talk about that right now. So let’s just look backwards instead. I remember when I turned 30 I was sorely disappointed because in my twenties I envisioned… Continue reading 49er (almost 50 but not quite!)

“Vacation, all I ever wanted…”🎼🎤

I don’t know why I haven’t written for so long. Well, actually, yes I do. I think I allowed myself to believe a lie. I convinced myself, unintentionally of course, that if I didn’t have anything new and enlightening to talk about I shouldn’t bother. If God wasn’t shining a sunbeam down on me and… Continue reading “Vacation, all I ever wanted…”🎼🎤
