Well, these past couple of weeks have really been draining. I have been stressed to the hilt about money and being behind in my grading at work and being a bit overscheduled (that may or may not be an understatement) and not being able to keep my house clean and organized for more than a… Continue reading Thursday Thumbs Up and an Update on my Reluctance Realization
So, I think I just figured out something about myself. Much of what I do in life I do with some level of reluctance. It is an epiphany. I am unsure why I just realized it, but here it is, staring me in the face like one of those tattoos people end up with in… Continue reading My Life’s Work: Reluctance – A surprise #31days post
Another Six Word Saturday up in here: Follow through is stuck and immovable. Perseverance is NOT my middle name. Personal improvements coming in near future.
Today is the first of my #31days posts and the theme I have picked is "Coming Up for Air". I picked this because I've been feeling really overwhelmed lately and sometimes I wake up feeling like I've been buried beneath a pile of debt and worry and work and clutter and to-do items and appointments… Continue reading #31days #1 – Coming Up For Air
That turtle is clocking speeds much higher than I seem to be in getting things done. I feel like for every one step forward, I'm going about 20 more backwards. Some things are going well this semester. I like my classes. I feel better about my teaching. But, I am behind in grading (a lot)… Continue reading To-Do Tuesday #2 – Catch up!
This is something I can totally get behind! This year, for my daughter's "heart birthday" (the anniversary of the date she received her heart transplant), I asked people to celebrate by doing a Random Act of Kindness (RAOK). I love the idea of doing them every year and adding one for each additional year though.… Continue reading 22 Random Acts Of Kindness On Her 22nd Birthday
That pretty much looks like my life feels right now. Big piles of sticky, grimy, muddy mess. It feels like each day I'm just slogging through, trying to get to a temporary dry patch. And lately, I've been expecting to find a dry patch and, instead, just find more muddy puddles. So, I'm feeling pretty… Continue reading Slogging Through vs. Blogging Through
I am changing my blog schedule slightly. I originally had Tuesdays reserved for travel posts, but I find that I just don't like writing about travel much. I like pictures and I can use those on Wordless Wednesdays, but I don't like writing actual details about my travels a whole lot. I sometimes write reviews… Continue reading Introducing To-Do Tuesdays (used to be Travelin’ Tuesdays)
I have been nominated for an award! I feel both blessed (for being nominated) and guilty (for being inconsistent about posting lately - the start of school has really killed my productivity here on More at Forty). Maybe this will be a sort of motivation for me to get more productive. First, let me thank… Continue reading Liebster Award Nomination!
I need one of these. No, not the word cloud...a daily routine! I did Flylady quite a few years ago and it worked really well for me. But, since I've had my daughter, every time I have tried to get back on the Flywagon I have failed. A big part of it has been that… Continue reading Simplicity Sunday #3 – Simply Routine
