30 Days of Gratitude. All at Once.

It's November, so my social media feed is filled with gratitude posts. I enjoy reading them, but I'm pretty lousy at managing to post about it every single day, so I'm modifying it a bit. I like to give credit where credit is due, so I'm using this particular one. https://www.facebook.com/ThisGreenCottageWitch/photos/a.904400939729669/1080734415429653/?type=3&theater I'm behind a little bit. … Continue reading 30 Days of Gratitude.

Adventures in Retail

First, let me say, that I really don't like working in retail. I'm not a people person, and spending a year working at a big box retail store years ago confirmed that, lol. However, I've worked for the past 4 years in the e-commerce side of a wholesale business, and I've discovered that I do … Continue reading Adventures in Retail

It’s All Come Down to This

Infuriating. That's the only word I can come up with about today's Senate hearing with Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh. I thought, hoped that we had progressed beyond this. Obviously not. I am so bitterly disappointed and angry with the men (I can't even bring myself to refer to them by their titles) who … Continue reading It’s All Come Down to This

We Interrupt This Programming to Bring You a Stupid Action By a Police Department

This wasn't my original plan for posting. However, when I opened up Facebook this morning, the very first post I saw was this. Screenshot from my computer. I started seeing this meme yesterday. First, let me say that I don't mind memes that are meant to be funny. I'm not a fan of memes that … Continue reading We Interrupt This Programming to Bring You a Stupid Action By a Police Department

Hurricane Weary – No, We Didn’t Evacuate

Our county in South Carolina has been under a mandatory evacuation since Tuesday. We did not evacuate. Now, before you start judging, hear me out. I'm not a hurricane rookie. Erin, Floyd, Irene, Sandy, effects of Joaquin, Matthew, and Irma. I think that's the list. My comfort level extends through a Category 2 storm. We … Continue reading Hurricane Weary – No, We Didn’t Evacuate

That Newfangled Thing and Car Dealerships Are the Devil

Let me start by saying that I'm not afraid of technology. I wouldn't say that I'm the first in line for something new, but I like to keep up-to-date on new stuff. We've been car shopping. Not for me, I expect my 2010 Toyota Camry to keep right on going another 5 years or so. … Continue reading That Newfangled Thing and Car Dealerships Are the Devil

I Don’t Know How to Explain to You that You Should Care about Other People

I started seeing this statement sometime last year, I think. Probably during one of the many attempts to yank healthcare out from under Americans. I don't know to whom it should be attributed, or I would certainly give credit. I've decided that this is one of my mottoes, although I hate that it's necessary. I … Continue reading I Don’t Know How to Explain to You that You Should Care about Other People

He Tricked Us and Stole Our Hearts

For a very brief time, we were a two-cat family. Our senior citizen cat, Sophie, seemed to get more neurotic as she got older, and we had hoped that bringing a younger cat home would give her some company when one of her "kids" was missing. That kind of turned out to not be the case, … Continue reading He Tricked Us and Stole Our Hearts
