Thankful Thursday: We Appreciate You

  This week, we want to thank you for spending your time each day reading whatever random-thought meandering we opted to share with you. We appreciate that you spend your time with us, as there are many great cat videos that you could be watching instead. Summer is here and we know that means, hopefully,…

Thankful Thursday: Single White Female

My friend, Julie, and I have this ongoing inside joke about being each other’s Single White Female. If you are a woman, of a certain age, you saw the movie Single White Female with Bridget Fonda and Jennifer Jason Leigh years ago. Jennifer Jason Leigh’s character basically tries to emulate Bridget Fonda’s character and before…

Thankful Thursday: Gratitude Groove

Today, is one of those days where the sun began shining in the window well before 6 am and I awoke to the birds chirping and a slight breeze outside.  I contemplated getting a head start to the day since I was awake.  Instead, I pulled the covers back and let the pup crawl in…

Thankful Thursday: Happy Mother’s Day!

  It’s Mother’s Day weekend and this is a shout-out to all the awesome moms out there killing the whole diaper-changing, middle-of-the-night feedings, throw up, boo boos, sibling rivalry, breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, car pool, school projects, doctor’s visits, homework, friends, college, parties and so many things that we have already forgotten. Motherhood can be…

Thankful Thursday: New Driver!

  Okay guys, I am not going to lie.  We have a new driver in the house and I could not be happier.  On Tuesday, Reese took her driver’s test and she passed.  In case you have been busy and did not read Monday’s blog, this was a day after she turned 16  much to…

Thankful Thursday: What If?

I am a what-iffer. I know that’s a made up word but it’s really the best way to describe my ever-present habit of troubleshooting a problem before it’s a problem. Also known, as Brené Brown would say, as foreboding joy. I tend to ponder “what if this happens,” so then I am prepared with a…

Thankful Thursday: All You Need is Love … and a Pet

Blogger’s Note: Sometimes we get on a roll with a theme and we can’t stop. Somehow this became animal week on our blog. It’s like Animal Planet. Just go with it 🙂 Some time last week I got a Facebook memory notice and one of them was a photo of Stevie Nicks while she was still pregnant…

Thankful Thursday: Reading Has Resumed

I am an avid reader.  I read every night before I go to bed without fail.  Sometimes I only make it through a couple of pages before my eyelids begin to get heavy, but I still pick up my Kindle and read.  In the years before my Kindle, I frequented the bookstore, the library and…

Thankful Thursday: Out of Hibernation

When you have a family pet that has reached into the double digits, you get a little twitchy when something out of the ordinary happens. If you are the kind of person who can’t take the stress of this blog already, remember it’s Thankful Thursday, which means it has to be a happy ending… and…

Thankful Thursday: Sisters

  Last Thursday, my youngest flew to Nashville to visit her sisters.  It was the first time she had flown alone.  It was the first time she had seen her oldest sister since she moved in January and it was also the first time they spent time together for days on end, without their parental…

Thankful Thursday: Two Years Later With Stevie Nicks

  Today marks the 2nd anniversary of the night  our pup, Stevie Nicks, was rescued off the street. If you will recall she was spotted in the ditch eating trash while on our way home from the airport.  My daughter’s boyfriend saw something on the side of the road and pulled over.  As they have…
