Someone’s turning 39(ish)

When I get off work this afternoon, I’ll be on my way to Birmingham to visit the family and celebrate Mama’s birthday. She swears she’s turning 39… I may not be great at math, but I think that would mean she had me when she was 13. So, either she got started at a really … Continue reading

Just call me Grace. Everyone else does.

Having a tough day? Need a little laugh (at my expense) to make you feel better about yourself? Well, today’s your lucky day… But first, a little background information.

We’ll miss you…

But, for your viewing pleasure, here are a few of my favorites. (I just wish these were my personal … Continue reading

Before I kick the bucket…

One of the prompts at Mama Kat’s this week encouraged bloggers to create a bucket list – a list of 100 things they’d like to do or accomplish by the time they turn 100. I’ve always been a dreamer, so I decided to give it a shot. I’m aware that many of my goals are … Continue reading

What makes me smile?

I’m a little late on this, but since I’ve been fighting some serious writer’s block, I figured I’d get in on Mama Kat’s weekly writing assignment. And the prompt I chose? Write a list of 10 things that are sure to put a smile on your face when you are not happy. Soulshine – No … Continue reading
