Focused Simplicity, Love, Thoughts

Day 23

I’ve started seeing advertisements for that money snatching made up holiday. You know the one that is all hearts and flowers. The ads offer cute coffee mugs, T-shirts, posters, throw blankets and key fobs with sweet words of endearment and love. None of it we need in our lives. My husband and I have more… Continue reading Day 23

Be Courageous, Grand Anventure, Looking Forward

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

Children, Goals, Grand Anventure, Looking Forward

Day 13

Life is a cake walk for some and digging ditches for others. I’ve been at both ends of the line. Today life is amazing, less ditches and more cake. 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

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

Sunday Thoughts, Thankful, Truth

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

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

Be Radical, Day Job, Hello Monday, Truth

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

Family, Grand Anventure, Sunday Thoughts, The O'Gara Clan

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

Last Post of the Year….

This will be post 365. Next post will be 1 January 2021....here is my profound statement for the new year. It’s not an original idea, I edited it, still it is worthy of the last post of the year. Practice the pause. When in doubt, pause. When angry, pause. When tired, pause. When stressed, pause.… Continue reading Last Post of the Year….
