Goals, Looking Forward, Truth

Day 12

Almost two weeks into the new year and I see why people struggle to keep resolutions. I decided this year to make goals not resolutions. One of my big goals is to save an additional $2000 over my regular saving plan. That means no impulse shopping and online buying. Let a sparkling set of dice,… Continue reading Day 12

Day Job, Florida, Hello Monday

Day 11

How’s the weather where you are? It’s dark, misty and gloomy which is rare for Florida. It’s true that the weather affects your mood. When it is raining or gloomy I mostly want to stay in and read. Today it’s soup and books. I’m at the library of course. What is your favorite rainy day… Continue reading Day 11

Day 10

I have noticed that I could probably wear a different dress or skirt for a month maybe longer and not wear the same one twice. My husband has about 1/4 the amount of pants in comparison. Where as we both have enough shirts, T-shirts, business casual shirts, to wear for about three months without a… Continue reading Day 10

Books, Looking Forward, Thoughts, Words

Day 9

I used to carry a calendar with me everywhere. The year we won’t name made that a useless tool. Appointments were canceled and fun events were skipped. This year I am keeping an old fashioned daily diary. Not a journal where you recorded feelings and woes. More like a captain’s log. Today is _____ and… Continue reading Day 9

Day 8

Today is a good day. Any day that you can wake up next to someone who loves you is a good day. Make spending the first and last few minutes of every day with your person, the human you can about the most, a priority. All your days will be good days.

Day 7

I am so very sad today. Not because of who is my President. I alone can’t control that. I am not even sad about the crazy behavior at the US capitol. We, Americans have been known as rebel rousers since the beginning. Even with our reputation of anachronism, we are Americans first. I have always… Continue reading Day 7

Day 6

Woke up feeling irritated and grumpy. I have been trying to shake off the negativity all day. My normal sunny and happy disposition is a bit cloudy. I can feel it in my bones and hear it in my voice. Finally decided to have a picnic lunch. Getting some fresh air might help improve my… Continue reading Day 6

Day 5

I became a librarian nine years ago. I have been at my current job for exactly five years to the day. I was in management for years in a job I hated. The stress was literally physically and mentally killing me. So I simply put my health and happiness first. I quit my 64k a… Continue reading Day 5

Day 4

Today I’m at work. Well, I love what I do so is it really work? I’m around books all day. The worst part of my job is my commute. Life is much better if you are doing something that you enjoy during the day. Wasting days in a miserable relationship or job will make the… Continue reading Day 4

Day 3

Today we took a mini road trip. We looked at potential towns for relocation. We like our little rental house. Emphasis on the little. One of our 2021 goals is to create an O'Gara Clan estate. Fingers crossed and prayers said. Hopefully this is our year. Our requirements for a new home are: Enough square… Continue reading Day 3
