Day 31

...of the hostage situation.....not really it just feels that way. I am exhausted and can't sleep. Big changes are coming for myself and my family. We are under contract on a new house and the moving stress is coming. Prayers, chocolate, and red wine will follow. Have you moved to a new city? What are… Continue reading Day 31

Day 26

“Hold on to your slip, darling.” Life is changing at a rapid rate. One minute you’re comfy in your circle skirt and Mary Jane’s; the next minute you’re comparing mortgage rates and hiring a realtor. Seems that is how life is though. When important things happen they happen fast. A big part of adulting is… Continue reading Day 26

Day 21

Today we officially started house hunting. We are a large family of seven in a shoe box house. I am sort of deflated. When we find a house that fits our family it doesn't fit our budget. If it fits the budget the house is always missing something. We have been renting the shoe box… Continue reading Day 21

Day 14

I am feeling a bit overwhelmed. I look at all the authors floating through my newsfeeds and say, “I am lost in a sea of headshots and book covers.” What makes me special? All these storytellers and word spinners think they are special too. We are all correct and terribly wrong in the same moment.… Continue reading Day 14

If I could telepathically send all my life experience and common sense to my children and grandchildren that would be great. How do you share experience… Continue reading Day 13

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

Day 2

Laundry and tea. Turmeric Bliss tea to be exact. Dirty laundry is a private matter altogether. No one wants to see your dirty underwear or socks. I do not understand why people take to social media to air all their dirty laundry. Not just when they have a disagreement with some other human but when… Continue reading Day 2

Day 1

I don’t like cooking. Baking I find enjoyable. Today I cooked a huge meal. On the menu: Glazed ham with cherries and pineapple, turnips, mac & cheese, cornbread, potato salad and blackeyed peas. White cake with fluffy white frosting. I have always said cooking is an art and baking is a science. Baking is all… Continue reading Day 1
